The Pursuit of Holiness

Jerry Bridges

"We are simply reluctant to face up to our responsibility. We prefer to leave that to God"

Holiness is God’s aim for every Christian. This book should come with a warning about the challenge it could bring to the way you live your life.

We are saved by faith but without holiness, we will not see God.

Bridges challenges us that if we are not seeking to live a holy life, we are probably not Christians. The Christian life is lived by faith, but holiness takes effort and energy.

Written in a readable style with bitesize chapters, this book is thoroughly biblical and rolls out the extent of holy living on a day-to-day basis. God’s aim for all Christians is to be holy as He is holy.
