R. C. Sproul in his new book, “Pleasing God” part of the Classic Theology series published by David C. Cook helps us in Discovering the Meaning and Importance of Sanctification. From the Back Cover: Sanctification is not an everyday word. In fact, it’s an idea that has little value in our me-focused, instant-gratification world. Yet regardless of trends, culture, or opinion, being sanctified—being set apart from the world—remains a vital part of our journey with Christ. But what does this process look like? How do we begin? And is it even possible to live a life pleasing to God? Renowned theologian and teacher Dr. R.C. Sproul believes it’s not only possible, it’s our calling. Pleasing God delivers an in-depth look at God’s plan and pathway for spiritual maturity. Clearing away the confusion of religion and dogma, Dr. Sproul reveals how every believer can experience authentic, lasting life-change through their relationship with God. Built on sound doctrine and rich in Biblical insights, Pleasing God offers a practical guide for anyone longing to live a life that honors their Savior. The Dictionary defines sanctify as, “to set apart to a sacred purpose.” Another way to put it is to sanctify means to “cleanse, purge, purify”. Or simply once we are sanctified we are washed clean and being clean sets us apart from those that are not. Once we are cleansed or sanctified doesn’t mean that the process is over. Actually, the process has just begun. In fifteen chapters Dr. Sproul shows us where the battle lines are drawn and deals with a few of the sins that beset us. We were made to please God and our choices determine how pleasing we can be. Obviously Dr. Sproul does a much more magnificent job in explaining which is one of the reasons why you need to have this book. Once we accept Jesus we are cleansed but the work is ongoing and we need to understand just what is involved. “Pleasing God” is a must have book. It is a must have for you because you will read it once, stash it on your bookshelf and come back to it again and again for refreshing. It is a must have for your friends and family so that they can do the exact same thing. We all need to learn and understand and who better than Dr. Sproul to help us with that understanding. I recommend this book highly! Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book for free from David C. Cook for this review. I was not required to write a positive review.
