"The Eldredges' newest book has bestseller written all over it...They are honest and forthright, never skirting a difficult issue; instead, they offer hope, insight, and their own lives as examples of what God can accomplish. Their summation of marriage. It can be done. And it is worth it. So is this book." -Publishers Weekly, on Love and War (Starred Review)
"The best, most insightful book I have read in the last five years. Every man and wife and every mother of a boy really should read this book." -Charles Swindoll, author of The Church Awakening, on Wild at Heart
"Eldredge uses his playful style to uncover the truth about who Jesus really was. With an eyebrow-raising warning about the "poison of religion," he urges readers to turn from religious power displays and legalism and instead spend time falling in love with the man, Jesus. Eldredge repeats tales from the Gospels to reveal a leader who was both humorous and confrontational, generous and moody. Eldredge clearly loves his subject, almost chuckling in delight at Jesus' antics. Readers get an intriguing glimpse of Jesus waiting his turn in line, "snorting" in anger, and artfully outsmarting his enemies. ... Still, readers will find a three-dimensional Jesus and may find themselves re-reading scripture with an eye on characters' feelings."Publishers Weekly, on Beautiful Outlaw

Mrs KAge: 45-54Gender: female1 Stars Out Of 5Not Biblically responsibleJanuary 12, 2014Mrs KAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1I don't think this book is trustworthy. In the first chapter he seems to misquote the Bible, to get his own point across. Not in small trivial ways, but in serious ways (such as explaining the woman at the well passage as: proof that men and women in the church can be friends and not awkward, since She was flirting with Jesus and he did not sin.) (What????)
I do not recommend this book.
mattparks35Joplin, MOAge: 18-24Gender: male3 Stars Out Of 5Pretty Good, Definitely Worth SkimmingMay 24, 2013mattparks35Joplin, MOAge: 18-24Gender: maleQuality: 4Value: 3Meets Expectations: 2Eldredge catches the eye of many readers by the title alone. What would have thought that holiness is a relief? His opening chapter pretty much sums up the book. Holiness is an utter relief, an absolute utter relief. He continues in the rest of the book to establish this point through biblical exegesis and practical examples. Half of the book is made up of biblical passages (which is good) but he then goes on to re-tell what was just told, which is unnecessary, and then explains the text in his signature, make-you-think-outside-the-box style. It is very simple reading. Outside of the title of the book, nothing much profound is said. But nothing really needs to be. It's pretty simple. Allowing God to restore us by his grace alone and then in response to pursue holiness, this is the main thrust of the book. There is nothing magic or tricky about it. It is simply faithful obedience in response to the great love that God has lavished upon us. This book is definitely worth reading for all and skimming for most. Hopefully it will inspire follows of Christ to follow more closely. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher and was not obligated to give a positive review.

From the back cover: In the depths of your being, you ache for goodness; we all do. (Something caused you to pick up a book with the word holiness in the title!) We are made for goodness just as we are made to breathe, just as we are made to love. Whatever life has to throw at you, friends, goodness is your strength, your refuge in the storm. What a relief it would be to be set free from all that plagues us -- the inner struggle with anger, or contempt, the habitual sins. And there is a way to be good again.
Here is a book that explores the beauty of the genuine goodness available to us in Jesus Christ, and guides us through the process whereby God makes us whole and holy by his love. You will be relieved. Utterly.
God tells us, "Be ye holy as I am holy." That is where most people walk away. How can we be holy like God? What does it mean to be holy? All holy means is one notch higher, a higher quality, to be at the level of God. Can we be that high? John Eldredge points out what Paul wrote, "Long before he laid down earth's foundations, he had us in mind, had settled on us as the focus of his love, to be made whole and holy by his love." (Eph 1:4) So the answer is yes. Holiness is something we all long for just, somehow, do not know how to attain it. John Eldredge has broken down his book into two sections: Section One is The Surprise of Holiness and Section Two is The Way to Holiness. Six chapters in each section give us an understanding of what God has always meant for us and what actions we need to take to receive what God has for us. It is time to be relieved and "The Utter Relief Of Holiness" is a great resource to get there. Not only will you be blessed by reading it if you give it as a gift to your friends and family then they will be blessed also.
