 Re: r.c sprouls book the holiness of god

Hi bible4life

I'd highly recommend this book. In a time when the holiness of God is often overlooked in our churches this book will teach you more about God and will leave you more in awe of Him. Sproul tackles difficult portions of Scripture with clarity and respect.

I doubt even Sproul would say this is the 'best' book on the subject. Perhaps in the modern day, but he'd probably point you back to Edwards, Calvin etc for more thorough works on the subject.

In Christ

David

 Re: r.c sprouls book the holiness of god

I have R.C. Sproul's book; but it is not a
biblical study of what holiness means and
how to gain it, I would rather read J.C. Ryle's
sermon "We Must Be Holy."

That's because the book is about God's Holiness, not ours, a far more important subject I think.

 Re:

You are right. The book talks about the righteous
standard of the law, the severity of the justice
of GOD, the doctrine of justification by faith
and Martin Luther and many other important
truths.

There is an interesting text sermon on SI called "A Clean Church" by Seth Rees. It explains the difference in the behaviour of the Apostles before the Pentecost experience of "baptism of the Holy Ghost and Fire" and after they had received it.

Sorry I have tried to make a link to it but it did not work.

 Re: r.c sprouls book the holiness of god

I would suggest

[url=http://www.amazon.com/Holiness-Nature-Hindrances-Difficulties-Roots/dp/0967760356]Holiness: Its Nature, Hindrances, Difficulties, and Roots[/url]

By J.C. Ryle

 Re:

I agree with tjservant. Sproul's book is very good, but if you want to read about personal and practical holiness there is probably no better book than J.C. Ryle's "Holiness".

I have often said to my church that if I could get just one book into the hands of every Christian it would be this book.

But do also read Sproul's book on the subject.
