Compared to previous releases of this title from EP, this new
edition restores the full text of Ryle's great work and includes the
preface by JI Packer, in which he reveals that this book was a
strong formative influence in his early Christian life.
'Holiness is the habit of being of one mind with God'
In this classic collection of soul nourishing essays, as relevant and
helpful today as when first published in 1877, Ryle endeavours,
'by God's help, to examine what true holiness is, and the reason
why it is so needful'
The first part of the book examines the doctrine of holiness, from
sin and sanctification, to holiness, our fight for personal holiness,
what it costs to be a true Christian, growth in grace and how a
lack of holiness often leads to lack of assurance.
In the second part Ryle gives warmly drawn instruction from
scriptural characters. Moses, Lot, Lot's wife, the dying thief and
the Lord himself, teach us valuable lessons about holiness or the
sad effects of its lack.
Holiness concludes with a collection of practical and devotional
essays, ending with the exhortation 'Let us live on Christ. Let us
live in Christ. Let us live with Christ. Let us live to Christ. So
doing, we shall prove that we fully realize that "Christ is all." So
doing, we shall feel great peace, and attain more of that "holiness
without which no man shall see the Lord".'
