A Classic Work on Holiness by Late Theologian J. I. Packer

According to J. I. Packer, "Genuine holiness is the result of genuine Christlikeness.” The pursuit of holiness is essential to the Christian faith, and yet it has been neglected by the church in recent years. Packer argues that this essential teaching needs to be rediscovered.

In this repackaged edition of Rediscovering Holiness, Packer explores the central role holiness plays in God’s plan of salvation for the renewal of the church, calling on Christians to shun sin, strive to be more like Christ, be pure, and fear God. Packer argues that holiness is more than just a doctrine, experience, or practice, but a change of heart resulting in greater awe at God’s greatness, gratitude for God’s mercy, and zeal for God’s glory. This book presents readers with the necessary steps toward rediscovering holiness as they live their lives wholly consecrated to God, exhibiting Christlikeness through their worship, witness, and service.
