Holiness

Holiness

$18.99

Paperback
Compared to previous releases of this title from EP, this new edition restores the full text of Ryle's great work and includes the preface by JI Packer, in which he reveals that this book was a strong formative influence in his early Christian life. ! 'Holiness is the habit of being of one mind with God' In this classic collection of soul nourishing essays, as relevant and helpful today as when first published in 1877, Ryle endeavours, 'by God's help, to examine what true holiness is, and the reason why it is so needful' The first part of the book examines the doctrine of holiness, from sin and sanctification, to holiness, our fight for personal holiness, what it costs to be a true Christian, growth in grace and how a lack of holiness often leads to lack of assurance. In the second part Ryle gives warmly drawn instruction from scriptural characters. Moses, Lot, Lot's wife, the dying thief and the Lord himself, teach us valuable lessons about holiness or the sad effects of its lack. Holiness concludes with a collection of practical and devotional essays, ending with the exhortation 'Let us live on Christ. Let us live in Christ. Let us live with Christ. Let us live to Christ. So doing, we shall prove that we fully realize that "Christ is all." So doing, we shall feel great peace, and attain more of that "holiness without which no man shall see the Lord".'

J C Ryle

R C Ryle (1816-1900) was appointed as the first Bishop of Liverpool in 1880 and was the leader of the Evangelical wing of the Church of England for more than half a century. His written works have remained in demand for well over a century, being highly valued for their clear and lively style. Ryle wrote on a wide range of themes, and his teachings, both practical and spiritual, remain as fresh and relevant today as when he first wrote them down.

A passionate and pastoral book
4 stars By Jeff, Mar 30 2017
Holiness is a passionate, pastoral call to a life of true Christian devotion. First published in 1952, Holiness feels decidedly like it is speaking from another culture, one like ours but with a different attitude to church and the Christian faith. However, that cultural distance enhances the experience of reading a book whose object is to make us long for a foreign and radical holiness. I have especially enjoyed reading and discussing it with a friend recently.
