    I received this book free Having read it I am surprised it is a classic The author covers various passages of Scripture to try and demonstrate the holiness of God He makes some good points especially in relation to those who ask how a God of love can allow suffering send people to Hell He reminds us that we all deserve Hell due to our sin which is an affront to God s holiness and that it is only by God s grace that we are saved through faith Although the book is biblically sound I found it hard [...]

    This one sitting book kept me turning the pages until wee hours of the morning Few authors possess the keen ability to help readers come into a grasp of the nature of God s holiness, but through this book Dr Sproul is able to help us better understand what God s holiness means and transport the reader into the presence of God.We often hear many talk about how God is love, yet why do fewer ever speak of His holiness and justice The Holiness of God reminds me yet again that my salvation through Ch [...]

    Holiness, as Sproul writes, is a difficult concept for humans to understand and define It is best understood by experience or by story Sproul does attempt to define it, but it is best truly understood by stories, anecdotes, and analogy.To this end, most of the book is Sproul examining personal stories that demonstrate holiness, but importantly, and extensively, he looks at the Bible to show what Scripture has to say about holiness.Early on he looks at the Lord s Prayer, and notes that when we [...]

    so I ve read listened and reread relistened to bunches and bits of this multiple times as I ve picked it up and put it down multiple times And as many times as I ve listened to parts, long and short, I think I ve had that many impressions of it I ve had moments of awe and moments of great or small ah ha and moments of frustration Some of these impressions are related to my mood rather than the content But some of them, good and bad, are of course directly tied to the material At some point I m s [...]

    This is a must read for any Christian I remember how formative it was for me, and I m glad to have re read it.

    Good read, Dr Sproul knows the scripture and teaches it While I don t agree with him on everything and woe be to me if he heard that as I ve listened to him and he doesn t appreciate that kind of thing this is a good and worthwhile read I think his view of God puts Him at too much of a distance The picture in God s Holiness is true but I think not complete here as God has made provision through Jesus and the Holy Spirit for man to approach Him Still like I saidgood read and a lot to teach Dr Spr [...]

    This is a classic I have had on my bookshelof for quite awhile and just now got around to reading I chose to read it at this time because next month I am going to the Ligonier Mininstries National Conference and the conference theme this year is the Holiness of God This was an excellent book though a heavy topic this book was well written, easy to comprehend, and a joy to read My copy included study questions at the end of each chapter that would be good to journal or good to use in a group stud [...]

    Awesome book by Sproul Great use of biblical stories and modern day analogies to show and explain the Holiness of God Strongly encourage everyone to read

    Our marks of piety can actually be evidence of our impiety Disappointing for a supposed classic of theology Expected better from R C Sproul An important topic for Christians Even given Sproul s well known Calvinist orientation, his writings betray poor scholarship and bias Good discussion of meanings of original texts, such as the same word being translated as truly and pray The justice of God is always and ever an expression of His holy character His theological gaffs are funny He reports Roman [...]

    Chapter 6, Holy Justice, was superb I ll definitely be re reading that chapter when I can God is never unjust in his dealings with men He either shows mercy, or shows justice But He so frequently shows mercy, that humans begin to demand His mercy, and scorn His justice Chapter 6 is worth your time and attention.

    Excellent work Definitely a book I would suggest.

    Jonathan edwards once said that nothing is what sleeping rocks dream about That doesnt help much My son offered me a better definition of nothing When he was in junior high, i asked him when he came home from school, what did you do today, son The reply was the same every day nuthin So the best explanation i can give of nothing is that which my son used to do every day in junior high A classic light hearted moment in sproul s writings, even as he tackles something as incomprehensible as creation [...]

    A wonderful work on the holiness of God by Dr Sproul Definitely added to the favorites shelf My favorite part was how he expounded on the justice of God and how gracious God really is to us, but that too often, we presume on His grace One of my favorite quotes The clearest sensation that a human being has when he experiences the holy is an overpowering and overwhelming sense of creatureliness That is, when we are in the presence of God, we are humbled and become most aware of ourselves as creatu [...]

    When I started this book I had this sense that there would be knowledge in here that once illuminated in my life, I would be held accountable for this information Upon completion of this book I have found it to be true Sproul dives into the Holiness of God in it s full majesty, truth, wrath, justice, mercy, grace and love It is all of who He is, He is Holy I would recommend this book as it challenges our thinking from the natural view of God to see His Majestic Holiness in it s full truth.

    For me the strong points here involved the historical information, for example, about Luther Sproul bridges the gap between devotional book and commentary, and applications are plenteous It just didn t engage my intellect very much Something like Mary Douglas s book on Leviticus, while not intending to be devotional by any means, gets at the biblical idea of holiness effectively because it is so text oriented This one didn t really fill in any gaps in my understanding of holiness, but there wer [...]

    RC Sproul left me hungry for of God s Holiness As I was about to finish reading this book, I could hear myself at the back of my mind saying, Whaaa I want , This book holds no limit in discussing God s holiness I mean, it is not the typical type of read It did not settle with the common knowledge we have about God Rather, it provided a fresher, braver look into God s supremacy and His holiness Thus, it had me craving for and , I did not want to stop reading it.

    I took 5ever to finish this book because of my own laziness but this is a must read for all Christians really explains expounds on God s holiness just how central it is to our understanding of God it really is a great thing to to look into, completely makes God that much bigger fantastic majestic awesome than we can ever believe or realize we are just that much evil, depraved unholy terrible deserving of God s wrath than we think we are we must remember that.

    Beth
    A surprisingly enjoyable read, considering the meaty theological topic.

    Stephen
    After the Bible, this book should be the first read by any new Christian.

    Andrew
    Sproul goes over key texts on the Holiness of God such as Isaiah 6 as well as some biographical information on key figures in Christianity who have been influenced by a proper understanding of the Holiness of God, such as Sproul s discussion of Martin Luther s conversion in chapter 5 and an overview of Jonathan Edward s famous sermon, Sinner s in the hands of an Angry God, in chapter 9, where Sproul also discusses a similar sermon that Jonathan Edwards preached, which is not as well known Men Na [...]

    I just finished reading this book, for the second time, about 30 years after the first time.I am brought to my knees thinking about God s holiness, and the chasm that exists between my behavior and that holiness I m a are of it than I was 30 years ago, it was of an external examination of who I was back then No I can see with clarity the mess I am on the inside, and how much I need Jesus Christ to stand as my advocate Anyone desiring to understand who the Christian God is and what He has done [...]

    My first book I read by RCSproul I loved it He is a fantastic preacher of God s word, but an even better writer explaining God s word, so lay men like I can understand it Fantastic

    I will be forever indebted to Dr Sproul for this classic work It was 28 years between reading the first time So much has happened over that time but hindsight makes it clear, I am passionate about divine sovereignty and holiness because of RC Every Christian needs to read this as a new believer and then again as a refresher on holiness When we understand who God is compared to who we are we will be effective tools for the kingdom and faithful slaves for our King.

    I got my hands on this classic by Dr R.C Sproul a few months ago, and I was excited when I found the time to sit down and read it I have read and listened to Sproul for a little while now, and I have very high respect for his scholarship The Holiness of God is his most famous work, and I think it has an important place in the minds and on the bookshelves of Christians today I think that God s holiness is a concept that most Christians accept but without truly understanding its depth So often we [...]

    I struggled in the beginning as I sought to read this book which deals with deep theological issues Such reading often lacks any entertainment value and thus one must push forward to gain benefit.However, soon, I was joining the author in the struggle to have just an inkling of the holiness of God and to examine its implications for mankind, and for my own personal walk with Christ.Sproul wrestles with some of the most difficult passages in the Scripture as he seeks to explain how believers have [...]

    Michael
    If there is one characteristic of God that must be embraced and is, in fact, at core of who God is, mark it down, it is not God s love but His holiness From Jesus prayer in which His first petition was hallowed by thy name , it is clear that while God is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness, keeping steadfast love for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, we must also understand that He will by no means clear the guilty Holines [...]

    Paul Stuart
    Sproul does a great job fleshing out the topic of holiness and how it s not just an attribute of God but the attribute of God Each chapter was not just a continuance of the main topic but rather a different angle or subject concerning God s holiness, which I enjoyed It helped me see how holiness in itself affects every dimension of God s creation I highly recommend this book My only critique is the last chapter He loses his marbles Like, he goes nuts He starts rambling about Gothic architecture [...]

    Christina
    Christianity is not about involvement with religious experience as a tangent It involves a meeting with a holy God, who forms the center, or core, of human existence pg 212.Chapter after chapter, Sproul pushes for an understanding of God as wholly other and transcendent, yet also as the One who comes to us, almost intruding into our profane, creaturely lives as a merciful, purifying fire God s holiness becomes ours in Christ, and t he goal of Christian growth is the achievement of righteousness [...]

    Carol Arnold
    Amazing treatise on the holiness of GodThis is an amazing book on the holiness of God It was recommended by my pastor and I can definitely see why Dr Sproul challenges the reader to consider their view of God If He is not the holy God of the Bible then he is an idol made up in the reader s mind I have highlighted so many passages in the book to reread and review The last two chapters were a little difficult and I didn t get as much out of them, but I m sure it was just my lack of understanding [...]
