Publisher's Description

Have we tried so hard to avoid being holier-than-thou that we've forgotten how important it is to be holy?

Authenticity matters. Transparency matters. Being open about our shortcomings, misgivings, and failures matters. Yet holiness also matters.

This book is a timely reminder not to lose the old priorities as we take on the new, albeit noble, ones. Millennial author Tyler Braun helps us understand that holiness is not just some fine ideal destined for generations past; it's the unyielding pursuit that defines every Christian life.

The beginning of our calling toward a holy life is the challenge of loving God more deeply. Holiness is not found in strict rule keeping alone; it is found in our desire of the Holy One. Holiness is not new behaviors. Holiness is new affections.

    Braun writes that Christians in America, especially the younger generation engaging a post-Christian culture, are framing a relationship with God exclusively around beliefs that make little difference in the way life is lived. Millennials have seen holiness defined in behavior: no drinking, dancing, or sex. Not wanting to fit into this definition, they have abandoned holiness altogether. The idea of a holy, set-apart people has faded.

    "It doesn't take much to simply believe in Jesus. In fact, that doesn't cost us anything. But following Jesus, that's another matter." (13)

    It is a misunderstanding, Braun says, that holiness is defined as behavior. "Holiness is new affections, new desires, and new motives that then lead to a new behavior." (12)

    To help us embrace a right view of holiness, Braun explains the holiness of God, the seriousness of sin, the power of shame, and God's unconditional love. He then writes about all God has given us toward holiness and how it affects daily living, including values, community, mission, and artistry.

    This is a great book to help Christians of all ages understand the current young Christian's view about sin, accepting it as a way of life instead of an evil to overcome. (16) I also appreciate Braun's section on the "third way" of interacting with the world, binding ourselves to the culture around us without losing our distinct mark as followers of Christ. (114) Young Christians would do well to read this book to come to a true understanding of biblical holiness.

    There is one comment he makes I find disturbing. "God cannot fully exist without the community of persons within His being..." (105) That would make God not complete in Himself. It would seem to indicate God did not "fully exist" before he created mankind. That is not the accepted evangelical Christian understanding of God.

    Food for thought: "Holiness in the whole sense (pun intended) of the word means a life focused around God both internally and externally." (16)

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of an independent and honest review.

    I got this as a free e-book because it looked interesting and ended up buying the paperback so I can mark it up easier and loan it out as well.
