Product description

From the Back Cover

Are you intrigued by God's holiness, or are you terrified?
Encountering God's holy presence, R. C. Sproul argues, is a terrifying experience and the only way to cure our propensity to trust in ourselves and our own righteousness for salvation. In The Holiness of God, one of the classic theological works of our time, you will gain a better understanding of how having a biblical picture of God's holiness is foundational to God-honoring theology and Christian living.

Format: Paperback
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.

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.

You can trust R.C.Sproul to write honestly, clearly and in depth. He tackles an awesome subject - the holiness of God - in a way that is both revealing and challenging. A great book on an even greater subject.

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!!!

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.

Exactly what I would expect from RC Sproul, clear, insightful and passionate exposition. He has expertly distilled what is a vast and profound subject to its essential detail providing much to excite the heart and provoke transformation of life. There are several others who match him in detail but few who do it so succinctly. Well worth reading.
