Kevin DeYoung is concerned that there is a hole in our holiness. The hole is that we don't really care about it. We "don't take seriously one of the great aims of our redemption and one of the required evidences for eternal life."
In response to this perceived problem, he has written this excellent book, The Hole in our Holiness.
Over 10 chapters, he outlines some of the reasons as to why there is a hole in holiness, what holiness is, the many motivations that Jesus gives us to pursue holiness, that holiness is possible, and how we grow in holiness. I particularly appreciated the way he clears up some of the misunderstandings about what holiness is and isn't.
Jammed packed with Bible references that support what is written, The Hole in our Holiness is a great starting point for any believer thinking about this subject. Not only that, DeYoung writing style makes him both easy to read and interesting to read [I share his view on camping!]
