The Holiness of God became the watershed moment in my walk of sanctification. Living most of my entire life in the church, sadly, I never felt like I knew who God was until I read this book. This book changed everything, rebuilt the foundation upon which my faith stands, and is the primary reason I ended up attending and graduating from seminary. Substantive enough to provide a solid theological foundation, yet not so esoteric that the lay reader is lost. A masterwork by a master theologian.
A proper picture of who we are...and who God IS.
Every person who names the name of Jesus needs this book...get it now! I was duped, most believers have been duped into believing that a personal God is the same thing as a personal relationship with God. The Holiness of God series has helped me,among other things, to start thinking biblicly, understanding why Isaiah was "undone", and Habakkuk would trust God even if no food or drink is available...God help us all to that end.

One of the five best books
I read this book and wrestled with the concept of Peter meeting the real Jesus in the water after a huge fising event.I went to bed one night and asked God what was going on. I suddenly felt as if I were in the presence of the Lord God and I said "get away from me-for I am a sinner" after that night I never view God the same Thanks RC for great theology in a practical book for me.

my eyes were opened t o the word holy
when I was akid I used to go to church a few times in one year and everytime as I entered inside the church I was afraid.I didnot know why I wasnt very comfortable there. After reading The Holiness of God I realise I had right feelings. An unrepented person at the present of A Holy God must fear to death.I wish every person who goes to church realises this and repents.
Before I read the holiness of God I always had a difficult time accepting the wrathful God of the Old Testament. I prayed about this for months and asked God to help me to understand his word. After reading the sixth chapter of the holiness of God I wept in the presence of God and found peace with Gods word I never knew before. It is a must read for any college student going into ministry or philosophy, after reading the book I have not wrestled with Gods word and all that is in it.
I WILL NEVER SIN AGAIN!!!
ALL JOKING ASIDE, I AM LOOKING FOWARD TO SERVING A BIBLE STUDY, TO SHARE THIS BOOK WITH OTHERS BECAUSE OF THE IMPACT IT HAS HAD ON ME. WHEN I BEGAN TO SEE THE HOLINESS OF GOD I TO WAS "UNDONE" AND COULD NOT WAIT TO CONTINUE TO READ MORE. I HAVE COME TO RELIZE THAT THE MORE I LEARN OF GOD'S HOLINESS, THE MORE I LEARN OF HIS MERCY.
Life changing message
The first time I heard this message by RC, I was in awe with the character of God. Then, I became somewhat angry because I had never heard the message before. My question was, why aren't Pastors teaching this? Why aren't they teaching the full counsel of God? I've discovered that the answer is it will affend the sinner. Praise be to God that the Word isn't entirely eclipsed in our generation. Get this series today!
The Impact of a Holy God
When my mother died 5 years ago I took home several of the books in her library. One of those books was "The Holiness of God." I finally got around to reading it a couple of years after that and it had a profound impact on how I viewed God. Thank you for this wonderful book!
