Holiness is an essential characteristic of the nature of God and is a central doctrine to The Wesleyan Church and many other denominations. Yet this doctrine has decayed in recent decades and is in danger of being lost as a central focus of Wesleyan Theology. The third volume in the Wesleyan Theological Perspectives series, the Holiness Volume offers a fresh look at this essential doctrine, tracing the development of holiness in both biblical Testaments, the history of the church, and in modern practice. Chapters examine the ways in which believers experience holiness today, the preaching of holiness, and holiness in the church. Inspire church leaders to renew their teaching of this essential doctrine and equip them for communicating it to their congregations.
