White Horse Inn: Conversational Theology

Soli Deo Gloria: Our Only Ambition

From award speeches to success stories, glory is consistently self-attributed. So, what does it look like to be motivated by God’s glory? In this episode of White Horse Inn, hosts Michael Horton, Justin Holcomb, Bob Hiller, and Walter Strickland consider the foundation of soli Deo Gloria, or “for the glory of God alone.” As they wrap up this series on the five solas in this episode, they also reflect on the current state of the relationship between Protestants and Roman Catholics.
