When We Shall See Him Face to Face

Anthony Hoekema ended the preface to his book Saved By Grace with these words:

Most of all, I owe thanks and praise to the God of all grace, who gave me the strength to write. Through this study I have become overwhelmed anew by the incomprehensible greatness of his mercy to undeserving sinners like ourselves. We look forward with eager anticipation to the final perfection of the work he has begun in us, when we shall see him face to face, and tell the story, ‘saved by grace.’

In the foreword to the book written by Hoekema’s wife and son we learn that Hoekema died right after the completion of this book while it was being published! They end their foreward with these words:

We do not know what joys our husband and father now enjoys in the presence of our Savior; but we hope and pray that his endeavor to articulate the Bible’s teaching concerning salvation will deepen others’ understanding of this richness of the gift of grace that we receive through God’s boundless love.

Wow! Cool!
