Holiness by Grace: Delighting in the Joy That Is Our Strength (Revised Edition)
"The role of God’s grace in Christian sanctification is so little understood among believ- ers today. Bryan Chapell deftly brings the light of Scripture to bear on this troublesome question through careful exposition and compelling illustrations. I highly recommend this book."See All

"Dr. Bryan Chapell has done a masterful job of demonstrating that a rigorous proclama- tion of the gospel of God’s grace is not only consistent with a call to holy living, it is the only effective way to enable Christian believers to live out that call. I was person- ally enriched by his careful use of Scripture as the foundation for the teaching of each chapter. I pray that his influence will give us a generation of preachers who know how to preach grace."See All

Senior Minister, Tenth Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia
"The historic Protestant doctrine is that we are not only justified by faith rather than our works, but we are also sanctified by faith rather than our works. Yet, though we give this teaching lip service, very few ministers and Christians know how grace-based sanctifi- cation really works. Bryan Chapell has produced a popular, practical, yet theologically sensitive book on this very issuehow God’s gracious acceptance is the dynamic and guide for growth into holy character. This is a great bookan extremely timely book."See All
Senior Pastor, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York
"This is a delightful book, full of sane, practical theology and application. It is not the sort of book that will satisfy armchair theologians pondering exactly how the Mosaic covenant relates to the new covenant; rather, it is the sort of book that teaches Christians how to liveaiming for holiness and delighting in it, responding to grace and being thankful for it, avoiding the countless pitfalls, and learning to please God."See All

"Grace. We have an entire vocabulary of adjectives to describe it when we sing about it. And yetif the truth be toldwe Christians either have a stubborn tendency to refuse really to believe it, or we stumble over its implications. In Holiness by Grace Bryan Chapell comes to help us. Here is biblical teaching carefully presented, popularly writ- ten, and practically applied. At times what Dr. Chapell rightly says about the gospel of grace may not be easy to swallow. It chokes legalism and it burns the throat of license. But digest it and it will transform your life."See All

Senior Minister, First Presbyterian Church, South Carolina
"What a great book! What a necessary book! What a life-changing book! A lack of God’s clear desire for holiness in His people doesn’t come from making the Gospel too good . . . it comes from not making it good enough. This is the book for which I have long prayed, and I enthusiastically commend it to you. If you miss it, you’ll be sorry."See All
Professor of Preaching, Reformed Theological Seminary
"In this study book, a wise man shows how the grace of God in Christ, and the holy joy of Christian living, go beyond what many think. Would you appreciate a fully biblical and Reformed demonstration of how the love-words and love-works of our triune God transform life? Then you should read and digest Holiness by Grace."See All

This redesigned edition explores the relationship between holiness and grace.
"Be holy, for I am holy." Without Christ we would hear this command and shudder. How can God expect us to be holy as he is? But thanks to what Christ has accomplished on our behalf, God accepts us because of his Son's righteousness. Yet the call to holiness remains.
In this redesigned edition of his book, preacher and teacher Bryan Chapell puts good works and obedience in proper perspective. He traces the relationship of holiness and grace in three parts, outlining the principles of grace, the practices of faith, and the motives of love. This book will challenge readers to discover the gracious source of joy and strength they will need for a lifelong pursuit of holiness.
