Book Description

Central to God’s character is the quality of holiness. Yet, even so, most people are hard-pressed to define what God’s holiness precisely is. Many preachers today avoid the topic altogether because people today don’t quite know what to do with words like “awe” or “fear.” R. C. Sproul, in this classic work, puts the holiness of God in its proper and central place in the Christian life. He paints an awe-inspiring vision of God that encourages Christian to become holy just as God is holy. Once you encounter the holiness of God, your life will never be the same.

When captured by the evil Frogstar fighters, Zaphod Beeblebrox is faced with a fate worse than death . . . the 'Total Perspective Vortex' gives you "one momentary glimpse of the entire unimaginable infinity of creation", and apparently this realisation of our own infinitesimal insignicance in the face of the vastness of the universe is too much for the human mind to bear.

Wait, don't panic, you're not reading the wrong review. This scene is from Douglas Adam's The Restuarant at the End of the Universe, the second book of his Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy trilogy, but it seemed to me to be particularly apt to sum up what R C Sproul is trying to get across to the reader in this book on the Holiness of God. In the early chapters he cites various biblical examples (the call of Isaiah, Moses at the Burning Bush, Jesus' disciples ) to illustrate the effect on sinful humans when they are confronted with the Holiness of God. In fact, we cannot cope with a complete vision of His Glory - as He tells Moses "no one may see me and live".

In this book "Holiness" means more than just goodness/purity; it encompasses all that is special about God, all that places Him above and beyond us, His "Transcendence" is the word Sproul uses. This is not a concept much talked about in churches today, we are so used to Jesus as our 'friend', and God as our 'Father' that we tend to forget how big a deal that is. However if we can begin to get our head around this notion it helps us to get closer to a right perspective on issues like the seriousness of sin, the Justice of God and the Mercy of God.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Marvellous 2 Jun. 2006
This is a classic! It's one of those books that every new Christian should read asap. RC Sproul's style in writing of this deeply serious matter is extremely helpful. He writes with tremendous clarity, helpful illustrations, and scattered throughout are examples of his very humourous dry wit. I wish I had read this years ago - I wonder how different I might have been by now... Buy it!

I thought this book was excellent. Sproul writes with clarity and authority on an important subject. I have found this book particularly useful with regards to understanding Old Testament judgements and it has given me a good understanding of God's grace and mercy as well as an appreciation of His hatred of sin.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really Helpful 17 Aug. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When I first saw this book I thought that it was more theological than practical. What this book has really taught me is that the two aren't always separate issues. This is theology that demands action. The holiness of God is frightening, thrilling, awful (in the true sense of the word). This book has helped me see what is truly at stake. God is to be glorified, He is Holy.

I would recommend this book to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply outstanding. 28 Nov. 2012
By Paul Munro VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When presented with a Holy God in the way that Sproul manages through this book- you will wonder why you opted for a fuzzy and soft, touchy feely God who responds to your every prayer and loves everything.....realising rather that God is absolutely and completely Holy brings a different response and a wonder that modern evangelicalism has lost both in its worship and in its practise. Highly recommended!!!
