Central to God’s character is the quality of holiness. Yet, even so, most people are hard-pressed to define what God’s holiness precisely is. Many preachers today avoid the topic altogether because people today don’t quite know what to do with words like “awe” or “fear.” R. C. Sproul, in this classic work, puts the holiness of God in its proper and central place in the Christian life. He paints an awe-inspiring vision of God that encourages Christian to become holy just as God is holy. Once you encounter the holiness of God, your life will never be the same.

One of the most incredible books I've read in awhile. Deep, personal, and left me wanting to re-read it annually. Sproul is one of the finest theologians I've encountered. I enjoy his preaching, teaching, and now, his writing. Read full review
