Book Description

31 Jan 2006
God’s command is ‘Be holy, for I am holy.’ But as victims of sin’s ‘guerilla warfare’, Christians are often prone to give up the fight, or at least to compromise with sin.

Why do we so rarely experience holy living? Best-selling author Jerry Bridges addresses this and other questions in this insightful, practical and relevant book.

Whether you are a new or experienced Christian, the principles outlined in this classic work will provide a compelling challenge to obey God’s call.

Topics addressed include:
-What God has provided to help us live holy lives
-What is meant by the scriptural statement that ‘we have died to sin’.
-Practical guidelines to determine right from wrong
-The struggles we have with physical overindulgence and unloving attitudes
-How reason and emotions influence our will
-How habits and personal discipline play a part in holy living.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent, inspiring and encouraging book 25 Feb 2001
By A Customer
An extremely well written, concise book, covering in depth the issues regarding our walk with the Lord with regard to our pursuit of holiness. It also emphasises our responsibility in this area of our lives, but not without Gods strength.
It follows a superb structure with each chapter based on a verse of scripture, with detailed Biblical (as well as other) references throughout.
Upon reading it, I was compelled to read it a second time in order seek to remember and apply it to my life.
I highly recommend this book and would like to thank Jerry Bridges, the author, for his time, effort and honesty in writing such helpful books (not only this one!) and pray that his love for God would continue to be evident and the Lord would continue to use him by His power.

5.0 out of 5 stars Re-read it 30 April 2010
Sometimes there are books that just have to be read again. This is one. Very theological and practical, a unique and helpful mix. Recommend it for EVERY Christian, no matter how experience or mature, old or young.

This is an amazing book, written concisely, in an interesting, easy to read manner. Very helpful and down to earth but be prepared to be challenged! Every Christian really should read it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 11 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
An excellent book on the subject of God's holiness and his command to us to be holy because he is holy. This is not cultural holiness. Instead it is the holiness taught in the Bible by those inspired by God to write his message down. Read it and be challenged.

By G.M.S
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I would give this book five stars, as I did love it. I was just what I was looking for and it contents were written in plain English and therefore very easy to understand.
If you are looking for a deeper relationship with Jesus and are struggling with your walk, this book will help you.
I would definitely recommend this book, it is well worth the price, as I believe you get so much from it.
