Book Review: The Holiness of God

The Holiness of GodThe Holiness of God by R.C. Sproul
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a good book. From the start, Sproul captured some of the difficulty in comprehending God’s holiness. I wish more time had been spent in dealing with the subject proper. It seems a lot of space was devoted to human interaction and reaction to God’s holiness rather than more fully treating of God’s holiness. Nearly a whole chapter was given to Martin Luther, which was interesting, but could have been better used in exposition of Scripture. The strongest parts of the book were those that dealt directly with Scripture passages.

It is definitely worth reading and presents a much higher view of God than the typical evangelical theology today.
