Book Description

For many people discovering perfect love seems a frustrating and futile search. Even Christians who accept God as a loving Father have difficulty with defining the abstract concepts of holiness, sanctification and, in turn, perfect love. In the form of exposition and exercise, Dr. Greathouse has prepared a biblically sound Wesleyan approach to teaching the message of holiness.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love Made Perfect - a good start May 17, 2000
Love Made Perfect is a good introduction to the doctrine of sanctification in the Wesleyan tradition. As an introdution the book primarily serves the lay audience. To aid in study the book includes questions at the end of the chapters. This book would be an excellent resource for those who want to have a basic book for use in a Sunday School class. I would recommend the teacher also use or read A Laymam's Guide to Sanctification by H. Ray Dunning. For the person looking for a more indepth look at the doctrine of sanctification from the Wesleyan perspective, I would recommend they get another book by the same author: Wholeness in Christ. That book deals with the Biblical material in greater depth.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Primer of Wesleyan Holiness April 8, 2000
Dr. William M. Greathouse, General Superintendent Emeritus in the Church of the Nazarene, has written a primer of the Wesleyan way for the lay person. In a straightforward manner LOVE MADE PERFECT introduces the reader to the perspectives of the "holiness folk" about the Christian life. With careful appeal to Scripture and to the writings of the 17th century Anglican and founder of Methodism, John Wesley, William Greathouse presents a balanced and sane perspective of the Wesleyan tradition's concern for the sanctification of life. It is theology with practical application to life, for each chapter concludes with an appended "Light For Your Spiritual Journey" that seeks to help the reader incorporate the truth of holiness into everyday life. This little book is a fitting door-opener for one seeking acquaintance with discipleship Wesleyan style.

5.0 out of 5 stars Holiness unto the Lord March 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Holiness. We are called to it, commanded to it, implored to be it. What is it and how do we get it? Greathouse lays it out in simple, accurate and powerful ways. A must read for anyone truly interested in living a Holy life.

3.0 out of 5 stars Kindle version typo May 6, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm enjoying the book except in the Kindle version "LORD" appears as "LROD". That's really disconcerting for a Holiness book!
