When you think of the word holiness, what comes to mind? Do you associate it with words like unattainable, difficult, discipline, or even boring? It's not a very popular concept among Christians today. We know that holiness is an important part of the Christian life, but it sounds distant, like an idea from another more austere time. Yet, even if we don't understand it, our souls long for it. The desire for holiness, goodness, and justice bear witness to the image of our Maker.
In The Utter Relief of Holiness, John Eldredge brings holiness down out of the clouds to show how it's central to living the Christian life every day. Written with his usual wit and insight, and using examples from his life and the pages of Scripture, Eldredge makes the case that the purpose of faith in Christ is to make people whole and holy. You can't have one without the other. Come and explore what peace, joy, and yes relief, are available when you embrace the holiness that Jesus offers to you.
