This can help you better understand the biblical picture of God's awesome holiness and why it is so foundational to God-centered, God-honoring theology and Christian living. Sproul demonstrates that encountering God's holy presence is a terrifying experience, but argues that it is necessary because it is the only way to cure our propensity to trust in ourselves and our own righteousness for salvation.

"The material in this book drove me to my knees and dramatically changed my Christian life. Written by one of the most brilliant thinkers of our day, it is absolutely urgent reading for every Christian."
Chuck Colson
"Every Christian who is serious about his or her growth needs to read The Holiness of God. I profited greatly from this book."
Jerry Bridges
"It may be a bit early to call R. C. Sproul's The Holiness of God one of the classic theological works of our time. But if it does not have that status yet, it is well on the way to achieving it."
James Montgomery Boice
