The Pursuit Of Holiness: A Book Review

About The Book:

“Be holy, for I am holy,” commands God. But holiness is something that is often missed in the Christian’s daily life. According to Navigator author Jerry Bridges, that’s because we’re not exactly sure what our part in holiness is.

The Pursuit of Holiness, he helps us see clearly just what we should rely on God to do--and what we should take responsibility for ourselves. As you deepen your relationship with God, learn more about His character, and understand the Holy Spirit's role in holiness, your spiritual growth will mature.

About The Author:

JERRY BRIDGES is an author and conference speaker. His most popular book, The Pursuit of Holiness, has sold over one million copies. Jerry has been on the staff of The Navigators for over fifty years, and currently serves in the Collegiate Mission where he is involved primarily in staff development, but also serves as a speaker resource to the campus ministries.

My Review:

If you are desiring to have a closer walk with the Lord and want to learn how to purse holiness as obedience to His commends to "be Holy as I am Holy", then I highly recommend you read Jerry Bridge's The Pursuit Of Holiness.

Bridges writes with a thought-provoking manner that will draw you in from the very first page. A very scripturally sound book, The Pursuit of Holiness is very deep theologically, yet is written in a manner that lay persons can read and comprehend very easily. I have read through it very quickly for the sake of reviewing it, but will definitely be reading it again for a more deeper study in the future. A modern classic that I would include in my favorite authors like C.S. Lewis and John Piper.

You will be challenged to really look at your life, and examine if you are living as Holy as you should be. Then you will be given practical ways to live as Christ, in a holy manner. You will be reminded that holiness needs to be lived out in our daily lives. 

A must read for every Christian! I highly recommend The Pursuit of Holiness and give it a thumbs up!
