The "hole in our holiness" is that evangelicals don't look particularly holy, and despite the flood of gospel-centered discussions, there seems to be a greater focus on personal depravity than on the pursuit of holiness. Looking to right the balances, Kevin DeYoung presents a popular-level treatment of sanctification and union with Christ, helping readers to see what matters most - being like Jesus. He shows how one can be like Christ in being joined to Christ.
The market is ready for DeYoung's timely book, ready to avoid legalism and ambivalence, and they are ready for someone to articulate the inextricable relationship between grace and holiness.

This is a great book. DeYoung expounds on the hole in our holiness and shows with scriptural saturated detail why this ought not be so and how it can be changed. The Christian life is all of grace.
"Excellent audiobook on holiness!"
Gospel-centred, easy to listen to and informative book on holiness. The author is honest in all what he says on these Biblical truths. Lots of material included in this book wasn't new to me but it was really good to be reminded. I am sure I will come back to it again to re-listen it more than once. There are lots of things to ponder on now after having listened to it. I am also greatly encouraged now to pray for holiness in churches, for people around me and more than anything- for my own holiness.
