Product Description

What does holiness look like? For starters, it doesn't look anything like perfection. And it doesn't necessarily look like victory. Mostly, it consists of effort, prayer, grace, and obedience. "Scripture speaks of both a holiness we have in Christ before God, and a holiness we are to strive after," writes Bridges. We can ignore neither Christ's role nor our own if we are to successfully pursue holiness. It is as simple as refusing to smudge the truth on a tax return or as complicated as forgiving the person who has most viciously hurt us.

Bridges takes holiness out of the realm of the impossible and brings it into the real world of your daily life and decisions. Whether you're continuing your pursuit of holiness or just beginning, the principles and guidelines in The Pursuit of Holiness will challenge you to obey God's command of holiness.

Publisher's Description

“Be holy, for I am holy,” commands God. But holiness is something that is often missed in the Christian’s daily life. According to Navigator author Jerry Bridges, that’s because we’re not exactly sure what our part in holiness is.

In The Pursuit of Holiness, he helps us see clearly just what we should rely on God to do—and what we should take responsibility for ourselves. As you deepen your relationship with God, learn more about His character, and understand the Holy Spirit's role in holiness, your spiritual growth will mature.

    I found this book on holiness to be completely Bible-based and asolutely easy to understand. For anyone who is not sure what living holy means, The Pursuit of Holiness is a book worth reading.

    This book is as relevant today as it was when it was written in the 70s--maybe more so. A misunderstanding of what grace means has led to a North American church that doesn't want to hear about holiness, much less hear about sin. This well-written, easy-to-read, extremely biblical work makes its case in orderly, logical fashion, and should be part of every true believer's library.

    These books are inspiring, Biblically correct and enriching to those who study together. The author, Jerry Bridges, makes clear that God is clarifying the scriptures for us and revealing himself to us in new ways through the helps in this study on "The Pursuit of Holiness." Wonderfully Inspiring, and I would recommend it to all serious Christians pursuing holiness!!!!

    Why did I not read this when it came out in the 1970's? Convicting and challenging. It does more than inspire - It provides practical advice for a Christian who aspires to grow in holiness, obedience and righteousness.
