    A Call to Holiness

    This book is excellent for any one who truly seeks to understand holiness. A subject that is treated as taboo or dealt with superficialy in this modern Christian era, God has used Jerry to give clear practical meaning and application on the subject of holiness. A great tool for discipleship training, small groups or home bible study as well as overall christian education.

    The Pursuit of Holiness

    The Pursuit of Holiness by Jerry Bridges is an indepth study into the biblical definition of the expression, holiness. The word- holiness- itself, brings to mind many stereotypical ideas into the common mind, such as the hypocritical holiness of the pharisees in Jesus' day or the modern day, self- righteous hyporcite that is all too common in today's society. Or perhaps, an image of a stern, nun in a black habit, or a peacful, draped monk, engaged in meditation may come to mind. This book dispells the popular misconceptions of what society percieves holiness to mean, and brings to life the biblical and practical meaning of holiness. Deeply based on biblical scripture, this book is a study into what the bible describes as holiness, showing the reader that it is not an unattainable attribute, but rather something that each of us, as believers, are called to pursue. Unlike so many biblical commentaries or studies, you will not find too many personal anecdotes to obscure the book's purpose. This book is direct and to the point with very little extraneous detail. For anyone who has the desire and the attention span to spend some thoughtful time, into studying what the bible really has to say on the subject of holiness, this is the book for you. As a blogger for Navpress, I recieved a copy of this book for the purpose of writing this review.

    Are you up to the challenge?

    Jerry Bridges lays it on the line. We are called to be holy and by accepting Christ, we have the Holy Spirit within us - therefore we CAN be holy. This book is challenging me in the way that I need to be challenged.
