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.

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.Read more ›

This is a classic, it's a must read outside the Bible. Gives you greater view of who God is. My favourite section was on the insanity of Luther. Read morePublished 21 months ago by Az Medz
