Product Description

We see all around us that the world is on a quest for pleasure, power, profit, and position. Many Christians struggle to live faithfully in such a world and stay true to Christ's command to be in the world, but not of it.

Editorial Reviews

What is the nature of this worldliness from which the Christian and the church are to be delivered? Why is worldliness such a serious matter for the individual Christian and the church? How can we on a practical level put off worldliness in our lives and churches and put on the godliness that God desires, requires and blesses? Joel Beeke does us a great service by answering these and other crucial questions about worldliness in a very biblical, practical and insightful way.
Joel Beeke provides a dose of purity and sense, like a glass of clean fresh water, in the murky pools of today’s talk about holiness. Few can equal his mastery of the subject.
Every Christian is called to a pure life. These chapters define a worldly spirit, and then exhort us to pusue victory over this impure world with a single-mindedness.
Overcoming the World is not only a brilliant exposition of the meaning of worldliness, but a very practical guide. John Calvin is shown to be a man who was a great reformer with intense concern about basic spirituality as it affected the believers’ rellationship to the world. We need Joel Beeke’s book–we need to read it, imbibe it, practice it, and commend it wherever we can.
