Publisher's Description

A profound biblical examination of the divine work of sanctification. 

The mandate for holiness is based in the very character and person of God: we are to be holy because God is holy. His grace never leaves a man where it finds him. Grace always transforms the sinner into a saint—a holy man. God’s will is for His people to be holy, and the explanations of why and how we become holy are throughout the Bible. 

Explaining the tension between positional and progressive holiness, Joel Beeke and Michael Barrett expound the doctrine of sanctification and show that it is the application of the gospel to our daily lives. If you’ve ever considered why, if we are saved by grace alone, holiness matters, this book is for you.

Editorial Reviews

In recent days, we have witnessed a renewed interest in Reformed theology, and in this we rejoice. But there is one area that has been sadly overlooked and needs to be addressed, namely, the doctrine of sanctification. This book, A Radical, Comprehensive Call to Holiness, provides the necessary antidote to this omission. Well-designed and thoroughly studied, this volume by Drs. Joel Beeke and Michael Barrett is certain to be a valuable and trusted aid in your Christian walk.

-- Steven J. Lawson (President, OnePassion Ministries and Professor of Preaching,The Master’s Seminary, Sun Valley, California)

I heartily recommend this valuable resource of solid spiritual food at a time when many are tempted to get by on fast-food substitutes.

-- Cornelis Pronk (Emeritus Minister, Free Reformed Church, Brantford, Ontario)

It is genuinely refreshing to find a current book on holiness so vigorous and earnest, concerned to unite faith and life so closely and warmly. Christ-centered at its core, it is sweetly clear in its doctrine and strongly compelling in its demands, while always pastorally sensitive and practically helpful.

-- Jeremy Walker (Pastor, Maidenbower Baptist Church, UK)

This is the perfect book for those who still think the message of sola gratia is a threat to living a holy life. This is also the perfect book for those who still think that calling for sanctification is a threat to preaching justification. But most of all this is the perfect book for anyone—young as well as more mature believers—longing to live a God-pleasing life. In brief, Drs. Beeke and Barrett have provided us a great tool to assist us in practicing biblical holiness.

-- Herman Selderhuis (President, Theological University Apeldoorn, The Netherlands)

The biblical emphasis of this book, strongly reinforced by excellent Puritan teachings, makes this volume a golden treasury for the modern reader. All who are travellers on the road of true holiness have heaven itself as their sure destination.

-- Maurice Roberts (Emeritus pastor, Free Church of Scotland (Continuing), Scotland)

Anyone who ever teaches you evangelical obedience and holiness has done you the greatest favour on this side of eternity. That is what Joel Beeke and Michael Barrett have done for all of us. In this book, as they have opened up the subject of holiness, they have plumbed the depths of doctrinal and exegetical clarity, spied out the land of practical Christian living, and then soared to the heights of devotional ecstasy. Read this book for your good, for the good of your family, and for the good of your church. You will be glad that you did so!

-- Conrad Mbewe (Pastor, Kabwata Baptist Church, Kabwata, Zambia; Founding Chancellor, African Christian University, Lusaka, Zambia)

The author of Hebrews is insistent: without holiness, no one will see the Lord. Drs. Beeke and Barrett will not settle for anything less than total commitment to pursue holiness, whatever the cost. If you can settle for less, then don’t read this book. But settling for less may cost you dearly.

-- Derek W. H. Thomas (Senior Minister of Preaching and Teaching, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, South Carolina)

This book has come to you at this moment to help you magnificently to address your life, and increasingly so, to this incredible end of attaining more and more of the holiness of God. What a goal! What a heavenly purpose for daily living. Pursue it by His sufficient grace!

-- Geoff Thomas (Conference Speaker and author, Aberystwyth, Wales)
