In this repackaged edition of Rediscovering Holiness, Packer explores the central role holiness plays in God’s plan of salvation for the renewal of the church, calling on Christians to shun sin, strive to be more like Christ, be pure, and fear God.
I think is a topic we don’t think about much, holiness. What does it mean for us to be holy? This is a meaty book and it will not be a quick read but it is worth the time.
Here are a few quotes from the book to whet your appetite.
“…holiness is the substance of which happiness is the spinoff.”
“Those who chase happiness miss it, while those who pursue holiness through the grace of Christ, happiness of spirit comes unasked…”
“Though not much is said about this nowadays, a deepening sense of one’s sinfulness remains a touchstone of the genuine Christian life.”
Sound interesting? If you want to grow in this area this is must read.
