Writing: 4.0; Theme: 5.0; Content: 4.5; Language: 5.0; Overall: 4.0; I truly enjoy reading books (in this case, a booklet) about the wonderful principle of holiness. As Christians, we are called "to holiness." We are to "be holy, even as He is holy." The author shared some good principles in this small volume, however, I wasn't in agreement with his overall premise of this pertinent subject. The Nazarene (Pentecostal) approach to holiness is one on basis of a "second blessing" (or a second act of grace), the first being salvation (justification). I am not an adherent of the "second blessing" view. I believe that we are justified and sanctified upon trusting in Christ to save us. Of course, sanctification is a lifelong process for the Christian. Mr. Chapman teaches that a Christian can reach "full sanctification" (not found in the Bible in name or doctrine, from my understanding) here on this earth. I believe there is considerable evidence that Chapman's view is incorrect. I do agree with Mr. Chapman for his passion towards this subject. I just question his doctrine of how and when we get to the point of complete sanctification. I believe we will move to that position when we receive our glorified bodies. While on this earth we should be moving closer and closer to the image of Christ (hence, holiness and sanctification). Recommend with the cautions I mention. ***July 29, 2020*** ( )
