Holiness: Its Nature, Hindrances, Difficulties, and Roots
Listen to a sermon by Rev. Gerald McFarland from 1 Peter 1:10-12 entitled Holy Living through Studying the Holy Word. (Requires a free account at Westminster Theological Seminary).
In days when evangelical preachers are accused of being either superficial or dull, we have here a great example from one who was neither of these things. As Bishop Ryle explains and applies his texts with his customary simplicity and directness, the reader will find his conscience pricked and his soul examined. Ryle’s Holiness has become essential reading on this most important subject and the first chapter on ‘sin’ has rarely been bettered.
