- Koorong

<p><strong>The hole in our holiness</strong> is that we don't care much about holiness. Or, at the very least, we don't understand it. And we all have our reasons too: Maybe the pursuit of holiness seems legalistic. Maybe it feels like one more thing to worry about in your already overwhelming life. Maybe the emphasis on effort in the Christian life appears unspiritual. Or maybe you've been trying really hard to be holy and it's just not working! Whatever the case, the problem is clear: too few Christians look like Christ and too many don't seem all that concerned about it.</p> <p>This is a book for those of us who are ready to take holiness seriously, ready to be more like Jesus, ready to live in light of the grace that produces godliness. This is a book about God's power to help us grow in personal holiness and to enjoy the process of transformation.</p>

Customer Reviews For "The Hole in Our Holiness"

A must read!
5 stars By Aaron, Aug 02 2016
DeYoung writes a very concise and theological sound book on pursuing holiness. Particularly helpful was the his section on 'the gospel pancake'; union with Christ and pursuing holiness; and dating  sexual immorality. 


One of my favourite quotes from this book is: "God not only works obedience in us by His grace, it's also by his grace that our imperfect obedience is acceptable."


This is a easy to read book that I'd highly recommend to all christian to give clarity to a biblical understanding of pursuing holiness.
