"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. The troubling result of this issue is that many Christians fail to recognize that they have sinned against God. The lack of holiness within the Church has reached epidemic levels. "T ...more

It is with much trepidation that I give this book only two stars. I have the utmost respect for Henry Blackaby and his work. However this work on holiness was not my favorite. I agree with him that there is a lack of an emphasis on holiness today. I fear that maybe I have been influenced by this and that is why the book seems to be on the legalistic side to me. I know that God calls us to be holy because He is holy. I view holiness as what I am because of God's grace, more than what I do. This i ...more

Everyone should read this book. That it might bring our hearts before the throne of God really into perspective.

I bought this little book several years ago and started to read it and became afraid. I had to quit after getting part way through the first chapter when he quotes Dr. J. Edwin Orr - "Revival is Like Judgment Day". Now years later I have picked it up again and read it. I have been blessed to hear a dozen or so sermons by Dr. B, some in person, and I have not heard many in his league. This book consists of three sermons by Henry Blackaby on Holiness. One - the Loss of the Fear of God. Two - Looki ...more

Recommends it for: to the spiritually weak who need to be encouraged
Recommended to Reid by: my son Ben
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.

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.

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

I listed to this as an audio book. It was excellent! For any longing and praying for revival in the church this would be my top recommendation. It was thoroughly convicting. I don't think it's possible to walk away from it unchanged.
