Overview

"If there is anything that characterizes God's people in America today, it is the loss of the fear of God," states Henry Blackaby. When you do not fear God, he contends, you will not fear sin. The troubling result of this issue is that many Christians fail to recognize that they have sinned against God. The lack of holiness within the Church has reached epidemic levels. "True revival can only come," notes Blackaby, "when the people of God return to a healthy, holy fear of Him."

God, in His holiness, is grieved by our lack of it. In his worthy book, Blackaby urges believers to look inward, to see sin from God's perspective, and to live the standard that He has set up in Scripture. He writes, "The salvation of the nation has little do with Washington or Hollywood - it has to do with the people of God!"

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Pastor and bestselling author Blackaby expounds upon the need to pursue holiness in this latest offering which, like his former works, flows easily yet with depth and seriousness. Blackaby opens with a peek into his past, recalling the spiritual heritage bequeathed him by a godly father; to willfully sin was to bring dishonor to his father's good name, something Blackaby was loath to do. Likewise, he admonishes Christians to think seriously about the condition of their own hearts in honoring the name of their spiritual father, God. Blackaby cites three primary reasons why today's Christians do not experience the revival they seek: they no longer fear God; cannot see sin from God's perspective; and fail to walk on what Blackaby calls the "highway of holiness." While the majority of Christians may cry out for spiritual revival, most are unwilling to pay the price, says Blackaby, because "revival is like judgment day." Only the stout at heart need apply, for God will sweep through the soul, revealing personal sin until the Christian is purified and equipped to serve. Blackaby, with great passion, focuses solely upon the need for a church-wide spiritual cleansing. However, the text stalls at certain points, as the author reiterates his premise to make his point yet another time. Still, avid fans of Blackaby's works will be both challenged and instructed by this study on the need for personal holiness. (Nov. 4) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
