Wholeness in Christ: An Overture to Biblical Theology of Holiness by William M. Greathouse
No Christian sincerely desiring to live close to God can miss the clear directives to holy living threaded throughout His Word. From the first man and woman in joyful communion with Him in the Garden of Eden to throngs of people praising Him around the throne, the Creator's desire for intimate, unimpeded fellowship with humanity is unmistakeable. Such a relationship is possible only if the believer allows the Father to cleanse the heart of sin.
In this thoroughly documented book, the reader will find an expert treatment of Holiness theology by one of its finest scholars. Greathouse examines the Old and New Testament roots, providing challenging insights into both historic background and practical application. The author shows that God not only desires His people to be holy, but He freely pours the Holy Spirit in sanctifying power on any who truly seek this indispensable lifestyle. This masterfully researched volume is invaluable to the scholar, pastor or layperson who wishes to examine the Biblical foundations of the the experience of holiness.
