Cascade Books Transformed by Grace: Paul's View of Holiness in Romans 6-8

This study contends that the single thread that runs through Romans 6-8 is that of sanctification, which is explained in terms of a life that is transformed by the grace of God. The author argues that a proper understanding of Romans 7 requires that one situate it firmly in the context of the life of freedom from sin in Chapter 6, as well as a life of freedom by the Holy Spirit in Chapter In terms of its contemporary relevance, Paul's view of holiness in Romans 6-8 is grounded in relationship with God, involving separation, commitment, and ethical purity. It is a call to the Roman Christians, and by implication, believers in our present day, to live an alternative lifestyle, to be a model of God's holiness, in order to make him known to the wider society. This conclusion is tested in the Pauline corpus by examining various passages. A picture of Paul's view of holiness that is consonant with the message of Romans 6-8 emerges from this study. For Paul, holiness must not be reduced to theological propositions but is to be understood as a quality to be demonstrated in the lives of those who are called by the name of the Lord.

Grace produced Holiness What an exuberant work by Dr. J. Ayodeji Adewuya. He does a magnificent exegetical treatise of Romans 6-8, although not exhaustive but sufficient. In this summation is a good understanding of Romans Chapter 7, a very misinterpreted passage by many. Scripture Says: the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world. Looking for that blessed hope and the glorious appearing of the Great God our Savior Jesus Christ. (Titus 2:11-13)True Born again Christians are predestined to be conformed to the image of Gods Son, Christ Jesus. There is an Already/Not Yet aspect to Sanctification, where Grace Transforms and you can see it in the People of Gods character and conduct. Also there is a total consummation, where everything will be totally perfected forever. But all of this is done by grace through faith or the Spirit of Grace; the Holy Spirit the enabling effective Power. With me being an advocate of eternal security, this is an excellent book.
