Publisher's Summary

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.

Solid reminder.

Theologically based yet practical. The applications are mostly straight from scripture. a good read for a young person.

A great and practical book on holiness!

I found this book to be very practical and therefore it impacted my life. I praise God for the work through Kevin de Young. I am definitely stirred to read more of his books now. I give this book the highest recommendation and the audio recording was spectacular. Very engaging.

Practical for Everyday Life

I loved reading/listening to this book. DeYoung is practical and down to earth, yet also challenging and loving. This book is relevant and needed for every Christian.

Behind the curtain... inside the heart

Spoken in passion with the translation to everyday understanding and application. This book stands alone and is a great companion in our quest to get closer to the Holy Spirit. A pleasure to soak up this book. Thank you

Thoughts we need to think

Thought provoking and well thought out. One listen is not enough. True to the word of God. Well read too. Our era misses this badly. Much needed truths.

Amazing

The sound of the narrator is not loud enough. Otherwise, it was a great audiobook and great book by Kevin Deyoung.

going in the books to recommend pile

I started listening to this as I've need to back off on the amount of fantasy readings and increase God building and teaching readings. I wasn't expecting just how apt this book would be. already planning on going through it again with my Bible and journal so I can look up all the scripture reference as I reread it.

Great read

Would give the performance 6 stars if I could. Only took a star off the story because I wish it was a bit longer tbh lol

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.

A very worthwhile listen

I really enjoyed Kevin DeYoung’s writing style, his dry sense of humour makes his insightful Biblical truths really hit home. Good length too, not unnecessarily long like many Christian books.

Biblical, heartfelt, honest and practical

A great introduction to this vital topic. To be holy is to be like Jesus and to love God is to want to be holy. It is the Spirit's work to make us holy, but this does not negate our effort.

The reader is easy to listen to but occasionally I think he makes some pronunciation errors such as 'predicted' for 'predicated'.
