Many books have been written on the subject of personal Holiness or even from a cultural viewpoint so you may ask yourself "Why should I read another?". I asked myself the same thing but decided out of my enourmous respect for the author to at least begin the book and see if there is anything new that can be said. I was glued to this book in a way that I haven't been to any other book by a contemporary author since possibly R.C.Sproul's "Holiness of God".
Once Dr.packer has laid down a strong foundation for what Holiness is and what it isn't, and exposed the misconceptions and half-truths made by many christians in the west, then He begins describing precisely what true Scripural holiness is and what it looks like practically. There is a chapter on the need for "continual repentence", where he shows the reader the necessity to examine one's heart daily (or more often even) and to repent of all known sins and how he uses the martyr John Bradford for reference. As he moves on from there to explain the need for humility, as he calls "growing downward" and then the need for proper growth, he will cover every aspect completely and lead you to prayer as you finish each section.
It is a shame that all who call themselves "christians" do not heed the words and doctrine of this book. Just like "A Quest for Godliness" and so many of his other titles Dr. Packer does not leave any issues unadressed or less than fully adressed. J.I. Packer is not an author that produces 3 books a year and you need to wonder who is writing them, him or his team of ghost writers, he will not waste your time with any of his books. If you are not familiar with his writings you should become familiar with them, and my recommendation would be not long after reading his classic "Knowing God" you should read this book. Read it carefully,prayerfully, and meditatively. Read it with the reverance that should be prescribed to a man who has dedicated decades of his life to ministry in the west. He draws on an exhaustive and seemingly limitless number of references in the classic and contemporary christian authors. You have to wonder if he has read everything ever written about Jesus Christ and The Church.
With all this being said I give this book 5 stars, my highest rating, and recommend it to every christian, from the newly regenerate to the seasoned veteran. Dr. Packer is still yet to dissapoint this follower of Christ.
Without diluting the necessity of holiness, Packer reveals the heart of Jesus in simple, easy to comprehend language that penetrates the heart with the beauty of what He did on the cross: make us holy and give us the ability to live holy lives.
A must read for all who love Jesus!
They closed the road through the woods
seventy years ago.
Weather and rain have undone it again,
and know you would never know
there was once a road through the woods.
True to the title of the book, J.I. Packer passionately shows us how we can rediscover the way of holiness.
