Description

"Be holy, for I am holy," commands God to His people. But holiness is something that is often missing in the Christian's daily life. Why does holiness often seem so unattainable? Is it because we're not exactly sure what holiness is?

In The Pursuit of Holiness, Jerry Bridges helps us see clearly just what we should rely on God to do and what we should accept as responsibility for ourselves.

Discover how God has equipped you to lead a holy life, how reason and emotion influence your will, how habits and personal discipline play a part in holy living. Whether you are continuing your pursuit of holiness or just beginning, the principles and guidelines in this book will lead you to a real and tangible holiness that will change your walk with God forever.

J I Packer

professor of theology, Regent College; author of Knowing God and Rediscovering Holiness

This classic still makes one think, pray, get real with God, repent, and find joy in wise obedience more effectively than any other book I know. I cannot recommend it too highly.

John MacArthur

pastor, Grace Community Church

The Pursuit of Holiness richly deserves to be regarded as a modern classic. Jerry Bridges dispels some dangerous misconceptions while motivating readers with a passion for true holiness. This is surely one of the most important books produced in the past fifty years.

R C Sproul

president and chairman, Ligonier Ministries

When Jerry Bridges speaks, I listen. His teaching on holiness is not an exercise in abstraction; it is an expression of a passion that has gripped his life and ministry.

Independent reviews

The Pursuit of Holiness

Tim Challies, Challies.com, January 31st 2006

Packer and R.C. Sproul. And perhaps more importantly, it has been endorsed by hundreds of thousands of brothers and sisters in Christ who have been challenged by it to live lives of holiness. This book is a classic and, to echo John MacArthur, is well deserving of the honor.... continue reading
