The Pursuit of Holiness by Jerry Bridges

The Pursuit of Holiness
The Pursuit of Holiness by Jerry Bridges

from publisher:
Description: “Be holy, for I am holy,” commands God. But holiness is something that is often missed in the Christian’s daily life. According to Navigator author Jerry Bridges, that’s because we’re not exactly sure what our part in holiness is.

In The Pursuit of Holiness, he helps us see clearly just what we should rely on God to do--and what we should take responsibility for ourselves. As you deepen your relationship with God, learn more about His character, and understand the Holy Spirit's role in holiness, your spiritual growth will mature.
My Take:  As in his other books Jerry Bridges takes the subject of holiness and breaks it down so that it is clearer and more understandable.  Mr. Bridges presents the fact that for a Christian Holiness is not an option.  I think that the most helpful chapter would have to be the one entitled Help in the Daily Battle because for me it is the daily striving for holiness that is the most difficult.  This is a great place to start if you are seeking to learn more about holiness and how it applies to the Christian today.  Great book.
