Holiness. The Christian's joint venture with God. "Be holy, for I am holy," commands God to His people. But holiness is something that is often missed in the Christian's daily life. According to Jerry Bridges, that's because we're not exactly sure what our part in holiness is. In The Pursuit of Holiness, he helps us see clearly just what we should rely on God to do-and what we should accept responsibility for ourselves. Whether you're continuing your pursuit of holiness or just beginning, the principles and guidelines in The Pursuit of Holiness will challenge you to obey God's command of holiness.

This was a good book on how to pursue holiness and the standard that God is calling us to. Definitely had moments of conviction while reading this book. The only issue I had with it was at times it felt like it was saying you had to be perfect, which I know is not the message they're trying to send but just the way some things are worded gives off the feeling that you have to be perfect. Definitely got better towards the end when they talk about how to pursue holiness in our everyday lives. ( )

"Be holy, for I am holy," commands God to His people. But holiness is something that is often missed in the Christian's daily life. According to Jerry Bridges, that's because we're not exactly sure what our part in holiness is. In The Pursuit of Holiness, he helps us see clearly just what we should rely on God to do - and what we should accept responsibility for ourselves. Whether you're continuing your pursuit of holiness or just beginning, the principles and guidelines in The Pursuit of Holiness will challenge you to obey God's command of holiness.

Decent read. This earlier work shows a zeal that seems tempered by more grace filled tones in later works. ( )

This is a great book to read. It's easy to read, has thought-provoking quotes and has the one quality that all great books have: it makes you think and examine yourself. Everyone has their own thoughts on what it means to be holy and this book will make you think of it in another light. ( )

First words
Quotations
Our first problem is that our attitude toward sin is more self-centered than God-centered. We are more concerned about our "victory" over sin than we are about the fact that our sins grieve the heart of God. (p. 17–18)
