Uneclipsing the Son
Author: Rick Holland
"This book is an insightful, convicting reminder that no one and nothing other than Christ deserves to be the central theme of the tidings we as Christians proclaim."
—Dr. John MacArthur (from the forward)
Christ, the Son of God, has been eclipsed, and we've made ourselves at home in this new normal. Escape the twilight of tepid religiosity to step into the broad daylight of the living Christ!
Christianity is the worship of Jesus Christ. If He is who the Bible says He is, and if He did what the Bible says He did, He is worthy of the exclusive, attention and focus of our lives. Sadly, though, the Son gets crowded out by earthly things. Our hearts grow slack, our love runs cool, our worship is distracted. Even the treadmill of Christian activity can keep us ever unable to focus on the Author and Finisher of the race. We sip at puddles of sin a stone's throw from the Well of the water of life.
Uneclipsing the Son aims at ending all this, bringing you face to face with the Christ of Scripture, the only one who can transform you just by knowing Him. Clear, biblical, and compelling, Holland will drive you relentlessly to the conclusion that you must give yourself to the worship of this Jesus or forever stumble in the half-light of spiritual uncertainty and disaffection.

"For all who earnestly desire to grow in Christlikeness, Uneclipsing the Son is a must read. In these stirring pages, Rick Holland reminds every believer of the most essential components for spiritual growth, namely, a living, vibrant, dynamic relationship with the risen Lord, Jesus Christ. Simply put, this book is a soul-gripping charge and powerful call to singular loyalty and unwavering allegiance to the Son of God. But the Christian life is not simply about Christ, as this gifted author rightly notes; it is Christ Himself. This radiant Son must not merely have a place in our lives, but the unrivaled preeminence above all. I firmly believe that you will be both challenged and compelled by this book. But most of all, you will want to know Christ more deeply and follow Him more closely."
—Steven J. Lawson, Senior Pastor, Christ Fellowship Baptist Church
"We become like whatever we worship (Psalm 135:15-18). So the key to sanctification and spiritual maturity is a simple principle: As we set our affections on Christ and keep Him at the center of all our thoughts, activities, desires, and ambitions, we are transformed into His likeness (2 Corinthians 3:18)."
—Phil Johnson, Executive Director, Grace to You
"Rick Holland is a gifted preacher, a faithful expositor, and he possesses a keen theological mind. His focus on the Christian life and the preeminence of Christ is both timely and truthful. Read it and pass a copy to a friend."
—Dr. R. Albert Mohler, Jr., President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
