Product Description

What if holiness is about more than what you don't do? Has your faith become a list of do's and don'ts, rather than a powerful revolution in your soul? In Holy Available, Gary Thomas, author of Sacred Marriage, explores Christian spirituality, showing what it could and should be--a present power and not only a historical reality. Discover just how radical Christian transformation can be, and learn to see with new eyes and a new heart. Formerly titled The Beautiful Fight.

Publisher's Description

True Christian faith is a profoundly transformational experience in which every part of our being is marked by God’s change and energized by his presence. This transformation takes us far beyond mere sin avoidance to a robust “full-bodied” holiness in which we make ourselves “holy available” to God every minute of the day. From Starbucks, to the office, to the soccer fields, to the boardroom, believers have the opportunity to carry the presence of Christ wherever they go. God offers the reader more than mere forgiveness; he wants to radically change and fill them with his presence, so they can experience an entirely different kind of life based not just on what they do or don’t do but on who they are. Yet while many Christians today profess belief, their Christianity has no pulse. Holy Available is a manifesto of fully alive faith. Gary Thomas issues a compelling call for readers to see with Christ’s eyes, feel with Christ’s heart, and serve with Christ’s hands. We make ourselves available to become “God oases,” places of spiritual refuge where God can bring the hurting and lost to enjoy his presence and ministry.
