Jerry Bridges has taken the title of this book from Heb. 12:14, which says that Christians should “pursue holiness, without which no one will see the Lord.” The command appears strange to many Christians, who are accustomed to rejoicing in the finished work of Christ and the great truth of justification by faith alone. Any discussion of human responsibility is often met with suspicion. But if a biblical command seems foreign to us, it is only because we ourselves have strayed from biblical truth.

The Pursuit of Holiness is written to correct this lack of emphasis on the Christian’s duty in sanctification. Its contents can be summarized by noting the major themes of the book: (1) Both God and men have a role to play in the pursuit of holiness. (2) Christians will not become more holy unless they discipline themselves for it and refuse to settle for failure. (3) Personal sanctification is not about victory and defeat, but obedience and disobedience. (4) The Christian can do specific things, in dependence on God, to grow in holiness successfully.

If someone is a Christian, then they need the kind of teaching of this book. None are exempt, unless of course they do not wish to “see the Lord.”

Sample Pages: Contents & Chapter 1

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 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 to 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.
