Crossway Books & Bibles Set Apart: Calling a Worldly Church to a Godly Life

Materialism, hedonism, violence, divorce . . . despite a growing interest in "spirituality," American morality declines daily---even among Christians. Recalling the biblical teaching on the body of Christ, Hughes cautions that as our distinct identity erodes, so does our witness. He sounds a clarion call for the contemporary church to return to God's holy standards. 160 pages, softcover from Crossway.

This is an absolutely wonderful book on living a holy life as God has instructed. The book has a lot of statistics on our current worldly living then applying it to what we are told in the Bible about appropriate behavior. Gave me a whole new view of living holy for our Lord.

Of course this book is incredible. I highly respect Hughes and Love to listen to his teaching, so its natural that I love this book. It was delivered in sermon form to College Church and then transcribed into this book. I have been using this with a friend to read and meet and pray. Great book for exposing the subtle worldly traits we have that we don't notice. I was significantly convicted over my desensitivity to violence. But this book helped me get working on it. Read it, its short and good. I gave it 5 stars for what it is, devotion type material. Its not a terse theological treatise on worldiness. Its 11 sermons transcribed into short chapters that convict and give the Spirit something to work with on concecrating us.
