The Holiness of God
Sproul, R. C.
“If it is true, as Calvin tells us, that our greatest need is to know God, the specific need of our times is to know God in his holiness. We have suffered much loss both in Christian living and in Christian witness by our neglect of this theme. May God use this book to the blessing and upbuilding of a new generation of readers.”See All
“Nothing is more important in our Christian lives than our understanding of who God is. In this book Dr. Sproul shows us what that means and challenges us to think again about the depths of divine holiness. To ponder this is to see ourselves as we really are, to repent afresh and to turn to him again with greater dedication and commitment. This is a message we cannot do without.”See All
“Every generation is under a biblical mandate to provide a legacy for the coming generation that honors the Lord and propels them with insight and encouragement rooted in the glorious gospel of our Savior, Jesus Christ. In The Holiness of God, Dr. R.C. Sproul has provided such a legacy for the next generation.”See All

“The book, which is refreshingly written, is food for the soul. I know of no theme so in need of recovery in the church's life today as that of God's holiness, and this book is among the very best ever written on this subject.”See All

“This book is a game-changer! Everything in our lives and ministries begins and ends with a soul-gripping awareness of God's infinite holiness. These dramatic chapters, written in high-impact fashion, reveal what the holiness of God is and how it should revolutionize our lives.”See All
“When people ask me to name the Ligonier teaching material they should use to help them grow; I tell them, 'You should start with The Holiness of God.'”See All
“When I first heard R. C. Sproul's teaching on the holiness of God, it brought me face-to-face with the awful splendor of God's majestic holiness in a new and fresh way. I was smitten with the realization that holiness is not merely a peripheral attribute of God; it is at the core of all He is and does. I realized then that this was precisely the message the church of our generation urgently needed - and still needs today. Nearly a decade after I first heard this series, the message still challenges my thinking and rekindles my heart.”See All

author of The Pursuit of Holiness and The Discipline of Grace
Central to God’s character is the quality of holiness. Yet, even so, most people are hard-pressed to define what God’s holiness precisely is. Many preachers today avoid the topic altogether because people today don’t quite know what to do with words like “awe” or “fear.” R. C. Sproul, in this classic work, puts the holiness of God in its proper and central place in the Christian life. He paints an awe-inspiring vision of God that encourages Christian to become holy just as God is holy. Once you encounter the holiness of God, your life will never be the same.
