"There is a way to be good again." It's the premise that underlies John Eldredge's latest release, "The Utter Relief of Holiness."

At first blush, the title seems an oxy-moron. Most people don't mention "relief" and "holiness" in the same breath. Eldredge shows us how a popular misconception of "holiness" - technical rule-keeping - is so far from the mark: the life of Jesus lived out in you.

Tight prose, personal illustrations and practical applications show you how God's love can make you both whole and holy, and why you can't be one without the other.

Insightful, refreshing, thoroughly biblical. A worthy read.
