5.0 out of 5 stars One of the finest books you will ever read, 11 Jan 2012
This review is from: Holiness: Its Nature, Hindrances, Difficulties, and Roots (Kindle Edition)
The 19th century in England saw the rise of the Keswick Movement which preached a "Let go and let God" form of santification. It was the view of Keswick preachers in those days that personal holiness was a matter not of taking up the fight against sin, but of consecration: give yourself to God and He will sanctify you. In the face of such false teaching, J.C. Ryle produced this truly remarkable book on the Biblical teaching on personal sanctification. Ryle's book begins with a brilliant introdcutory essay on the scene in his day and then moves on to 20 sermons, all expositions from texts in the Bible on the subject of holiness. It is the best book to come out of England in the 19th century and one of the best books ever. Some of the sermons like Remember Lot's Wife and The Great Example of Moses are stunning. Well worth a read again and again.
