A profound biblical examination of the divine work of sanctification.
The mandate for holiness is based in the very character and person of God: we are to be holy because God is holy. His grace never leaves a man where it finds him. Grace always transforms the sinner into a saint--a holy man. God's will is for His people to be holy, and the explanations of why and how we become holy are throughout the Bible.
Explaining the tension between positional and progressive holiness, Joel Beeke and Michael Barrett expound the doctrine of sanctification and show that it is the application of the gospel to our daily lives. If you've ever considered why, if we are saved by grace alone, holiness matters, this book is for you.
