Dr. Oswalt traces the doctrine of holiness through the Bible in a systematic way. Instead of giving us a dry catalogue of proof texts, he underscores the practical consequences of walking in the Holy Spirit. Drawing on his expertise as an Old Testament scholar, Dr. Oswalt shows that holy living is a unified theme of the entire Bible. He places the teachings of Leviticus and other Old Testament holiness texts alongside those of the Gospels and the New Testament epistles.
