"Be holy, for I am holy"?. Without Christ we would hear this command and shudder. How can God expect us to be holy as he is? But thanks to what Christ has accomplished on our behalf, God accepts us because of his Son's righteousness. Yet the call to holiness remains.
Although his purpose is "to explain the role of grace in sanctification", Chapell not only explains fundamental theological concepts, but gives them passion and life through colorful, often poignant illustrations. Chapell argues very carefully that God's grace is the necessary foundation and source for all spiritual growth in the Christian life.
In this redesigned edition of his book, preacher and teacher Bryan Chapell puts good works and obedience in proper perspective. He traces the relationship of holiness and grace in three parts, outlining the principles of grace, the practices of faith, and the motives of love.
This book will challenge readers to discover the gracious source of joy and strength they will need for a lifelong pursuit of holiness.
