If there is anything that characterizes God's people in America today, it is the loss of the fear of God," states Henry Blackaby. When you do not fear God, he contends, you will not fear sin.

I have read many Holiness books from the Weslyan/Armenian background and I must admit I was a bit skeptical about picking this book up from a Southern Baptist. But, I am glad I did. One of the best books I have ever read on the subject. Heartfelt, convicting, and simple. Written to the spiritual leaders especially. And while there are a few portions I am not entirely in agreement it does provide plenty of food for thought. I would highly recommend this book.

Repentance is for God's people.
People nowadays no longer:
- fear God
- fear sin
- seek holiness.

We should, if we want God's best and fullness of life. A life of repentance, brokenness and holiness is a 'highway of holiness' over which God moves in the life His people and the watching world.

God, in His holiness, is grieved by our lack of it. Blackaby urges believers to look inward, to see sin from God's perspective, and to live to the standard that He has set in Scripture.

Holiness and sin do not belong together any more than a fountain that produces bitter and sweet water. However, mankind has a history of pursuing self-justification and rationalization when it comes to sin--accusing others and excusing self. The author's emphasis on holiness is appreciated and taken to heart. Living pure for God, through the power of His own purity is quite a task in an unholy world--but it is the call and we are to heed it
