This is a book of profound understanding. Dr. Oswalt has spent years studying and meditating on the concept of Holiness. In this book, he brings a practical perspective to it. If you ever wanted to understand what God means when He says to be holy because He is holy, then I suggest you read this book.
In a sea of books on "flowing with the Spirit," psychological self-help, and contemporary testimonies, Dr. Oswalt's book stands out offering real help, hope, and instruction for anyone interested in following Jesus in simplicity and truth. As something of a Christian "book-worm" for thirty-some years I've read a few truly awesome books: This one is on the top!
This is probably one of the most important books of our time! We are called to be more than we have ever imagined. Dr. Oswalt shows the importance of holiness in the Christians life! We need to live by the whole Bible and "Called to be Holy" goes a long way in showing us how that can be done in this life.
