Epiphany: The Season of Glory

Fleming Rutledge

Available at any of the following:

“We have beheld his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father.”

This line from the prologue of the Gospel of John declares the theme of Epiphany. Christmas celebrates Christ’s birth; Epiphany manifests his glory.

The feast of Epiphany and its following season are not as well observed as they should be. Many of us associate Epiphany with the visit of the Magi but don’t know much more about it. In this short volume, priest and theologian Fleming Rutledge expounds the primary biblical texts and narrative arc of the season, inviting us to discover anew “the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.”

What People are Saying

“One of the first women to be ordained in the Episcopal church, Fleming Rutledge has had a fruitful career of teaching preachers to communicate the gospel for the formation of the flock in love of God and neighbor. In this volume, Dr. Rutledge focuses on the liturgical season of Epiphany. Incorporating close readings of Scripture (both Greek and Hebrew texts) and Anglican prayers and hymns, she leads us week by week through Epiphany, showing how this season among any other most fully manifests the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. This book joins Dr. Rutledge’s other books as a blessing to the church.”

“This book isn’t just about Epiphany; it is filled with epiphanies. In the way only she can, Fleming Rutledge points us anew to the glory of Christ with insight after insight. Thanks to this book, even this low-church evangelical will mark Epiphany this year and, more importantly, will be reminded all year of the way God speaks to us in both the mysterious and the ordinary.”

Russell Moore

Editor in chief of Christianity Today

“With palpable reverence and predictable erudition, Fleming Rutledge unearths the riches of the most overlooked season of the liturgical year. Epiphany is all about glory, chiefly the glory of the person of Christ revealed in majesty and power as the King of the Jews and Lord of the Gentiles in key moments of the biblical drama. In Epiphany and the season leading up to Lent, the church gathers a fresh chance to behold the glory of her Lord and to renew itself in the work of proclaiming his glory to the world.”

Katelyn Beaty

Journalist and author of Celebrities for Jesus

“In Epiphany, Fleming Rutledge shows how recovering a delight in the glory of God in Jesus Christ is ‘needed by the church right now as a drowning person needs a lifeboat.’ Written with joyful urgency yet patient wisdom, this book should be required reading for pastors seeking to recover the wonder of Epiphany. Veterans and newcomers to celebrating the liturgical year will find a treasure of biblical and theological insight in this succinct yet potent work. Moreover, anyone who aches for an alternative to the empty ‘glories’ so widely pursued today will be nourished by this exposition of the strange yet beautiful reality of God’s resplendent glory, displayed in the crucified Lord.”
