Warner Press Called to Be Holy: A Biblical Perspective

Dr. Oswalt traces the doctrine of holiness through the Bible in a systematic way. Instead of giving us a dry catalogue of proof texts, he underscores the practical consequences of walking in the Holy Spirit. Drawing on his expertise as an Old Testament scholar, Dr. Oswalt shows that holy living is a unified theme of the entire Bible. He places the teachings of Leviticus and other Old Testament holiness texts alongside those of the Gospels and the New Testament epistles. The result is a well-rounded portrait of the Bible's teachings on godly living.

This is a book of profound understanding. Dr. Oswalt has spent years studying and meditating on the concept of Holiness. In this book, he brings a practical perspective to it. If you ever wanted to understand what God means when He says to be holy because He is holy, then I suggest you read this book.

In a sea of books on "flowing with the Spirit," psychological self-help, and contemporary testimonies, Dr. Oswalt's book stands out offering real help, hope, and instruction for anyone interested in following Jesus in simplicity and truth. As something of a Christian "book-worm" for thirty-some years I've read a few truly awesome books: This one is on the top!

This is probably one of the most important books of our time! We are called to be more than we have ever imagined. Dr. Oswalt shows the importance of holiness in the Christians life! We need to live by the whole Bible and "Called to be Holy" goes a long way in showing us how that can be done in this life.
