Murray believed there is no word in Scripture more distinctly divine in its origin and intent than the word "holy." He also believed that Christians often are perplexed by its meaning. In this thorough treatment, Andrew Murray develops biblical answers to three questions as pertinent today as they were to his readers more than a century ago: What is God's holiness? How does a Christian's holiness relate to divine holiness? How is true holiness obtained?
Discover the "divine expression of the Christian life"--holiness--in Andrew Murray's classic devotional study. Delve into the Word of God to learn what God's holiness is and what ours is to be. As timely now as when it was written over a century ago, the thirty-one chapters equip and exhort believers to "Be holy, because [God is] holy" (1 Peter 1:16). The Path to Holiness examines both the Old and New Testaments helping believers progress along the path of sanctification and grow in a holy lifestyle before God. Originally titled Holy in Christ, this updated edition includes Andrew Murray's original applications and prayers.
