Living it out is even better.
When people hear competing--even contradicting--descriptions of holiness they sometimes become doubtful it can be a reality in their own lives. Like most divine things, holiness is difficult to describe and capture in one complete way.
This work embraces the richness of holiness by putting side-by-side various understandings of holiness and sanctification from a diverse group of Nazarene pastors, leaders, and scholars. These writers demonstrate the variety of ways this work of God is understood and lived out. The contributors are aged twenty-something to eighty-something and are a mixture of amateurs and experts in the field of theology.
Holiness is a dynamic reality that exists in tensions such as instant and process, now and later, and individual and social. One thing is certain, however: holiness is a gift from and a work of God that He originates, initiates, and sustains in the life of the believer.
Here one finds a breadth and depth of perspectives that enrich, rather than divide, our collective understanding of God's call to and provisions for a holy life.
-John C. Bowling
