The Utter Relief of Holiness: How God's Goodness Frees Us from Everything that Plagues Us
What a relief it would be to be set free from all that plagues us -- the inner struggle with anger, or contempt, the habitual sins. Is such an experience possible? John Eldredge believes it is, and in THE UTTER RELIEF OF HOLINESS, he shows readers how they can be that free, through the healing work of Christ in their lives. It begins when we discover what the salvation of Jesus Christ means for our own restoration and find that holiness is an expression of the healing of our humanity.
Here is a book that explores the beauty of the genuine goodness available to us in Jesus Christ, and guides the reader through the process whereby God makes us whole and holy by his love. Readers will be relieved. Utterly.

Not Biblically responsibleUser Review - Christianbook.com
I don't think this book is trustworthy. In the first chapter he seems to misquote the Bible, to get his own point across. Not in small trivial ways, but in serious ways (such as explaining the woman at the well passage as: proof that men and women in the church can be friends and not awkward, since She was flirting with Jesus and he did not sin.) (What????) I do not recommend this book.
