Publisher's Summary

"Be holy, for I am holy," commands God to His people. But holiness is something that is often missed in the Christian's daily life. According to Jerry Bridges, that's because we're not exactly sure what our part in holiness is. In The Pursuit of Holiness, he helps us see clearly just what we should rely on God to do-and what we should accept responsibility for ourselves. Whether you're continuing your pursuit of holiness or just beginning, the principles and guidelines in The Pursuit of Holiness will challenge you to obey God's command of holiness.

One of the best!

This is one of my top 10 all time Christian books. A concise and Biblical approach to growing in Christ!

Terrible Narrator

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I love this book and have read it in print format before. I purchased it here to make reviewing it easier. The narrator's voice grates so badly that I cannot focus on the message he is reading. I neecd to pursue a refund on this one.

A must read.

This is a book that needs to be reread at least every three years to reset our purpose in Christ.

Did not like the reader.

Hard to listen to for long periods. Had to read for a class. The material is pretty deep and thought prevoking.

Needs chapter titles

I’ve enjoyed listening and learning from this book but it would be really helpful if the chapters were titled in chapter selection area to make reviewing specific sections easier.

Great message

Fantastic insight. The lessons learned here will linger in your mind long after the book is put to rest. The narrator was tough..... kept putting me to sleep.

Thank you

Jerry,
Want to thank you for putting this book together. It is both practical yet biblically truthful approach to right Christian living.
I have read every passage of scripture you quoted many times but did not see its application the way I should have. I am both humbled and grateful.

Excellent Book But A Hard Listen

This book is wonderful. Want to grow in holiness? You’ve got the right book. But the reverent, slow pace of the narration — which in tone totally suits the book — totally left my mind to wander, no matter how hard I tried to stay with it. I’ll be purchasing the physical book in hope to retain more.

First Class discussion and instruction on Holiness

As with all good teaching it prompts one to want to listen again to get the jewels of the authors teaching. I shall certainly be doing that and listening to the companion volume holiness in daily life

The Magnificent Obsession

Holiness is the narrow road. The Way of safety our pathfinding Saviour marked out for us through the minefield of this wicked (twisted, perverted), world. When we deviate from it, either through ignorance or wilfully, we take the chance of stepping onto a mine. It is not only the Way, it is an unstoppable force. It is the ultimate protection. I plan to listen to this book repeatedly. This book is profound!
