The holiness of God is the subject of constant proclamation among angels (Isa. 6:3; Rev. 4:8). Meanwhile, Christians no longer believe in it. They wear shirts proclaiming “Jesus is my homeboy” and use God as a comic-relief character in tasteless jokes—while God Himself smolders as a consuming fire (Heb. 12:29). Whole churches lift up their hands to God, begging Him to come down, heedless that God’s arrival might bring a death toll. To describe the problem more exactly, Christians have stressed having a relationship with God but have forgotten that He “dwells in inapproachable light” (1 Tim. 6:16).

The solution is a re-examination of God’s holiness and a commitment to honor it. And apart from the Bible itself, likely no book can reveal the holiness of God better than R. C. Sproul’s. At the risk of overusing the term, it’s a “new classic.” No other book has done more to awaken contemporary Christianity to this attribute of God.

The Holiness of God by Sproul combines three commendable elements: (1) He presents a biblical treatment of the topic, either by expositing key passages or by bringing scriptural accounts to bear on the issue. (2) His writing style easily keeps the reader’s attention, oscillating from his own unique humor to potent observations. (3) At no time in these pages does the holiness of God appear as a merely academic issue; it consistently impresses itself upon the reader, requiring his life to reflect the knowledge gained.

If you wish to continue in an ankle-deep knowledge of God, and in a reckless Christian life, then do not read this book. Otherwise, we most eagerly recommend it.

About the Author


Sample Pages: Chapter 1

Central to God’s character is the quality of holiness. Yet, even so, most people are hard-pressed to define what God’s holiness precisely is. Many preachers today avoid the topic altogether because people today don’t quite know what to do with words like “awe” or “fear.” R. C. Sproul, in this classic work, puts the holiness of God in its proper and central place in the Christian life. He paints an awe-inspiring vision of God that encourages Christians to become holy just as God is holy. Once you encounter the holiness of God, your life will never be the same.
