Overview

Christians can’t be perfect, but they can be holy!

Written in the tradition of John Wesley, the 8-volume Holiness Collection from the Wesleyan Publishing House offers a biblical perspective on holiness and a fresh approach to holiness in the Christian life. With treatments of biblical, historical, and theological understandings of holiness, the authors define holiness as the church’s corporate calling, as well as the primary aspiration for the Christian life. Holiness, they argue, should not be sectioned off from the rest of Christian faith, belief, and practice, but rather should remain intricately connected to the rest of life. The books in this collection bring the full weight of biblical studies and the history of theology to bear on holiness, and offer practical advice for ordinary Christians seeking to discover the Spirit’s work in their own lives.

What’s more, the Logos Bible Software edition makes these important works on holiness more accessible and easier to use than ever! From advanced search features, to detailed tagging to the Bibles and other books in your digital library, Logos gives you the tools to discover and explore Christian holiness and the doctrine of sanctification.

Holiness is an essential characteristic of the nature of God and is a central doctrine to The Wesleyan Church and many other denominations. Yet this doctrine has decayed in recent decades and is in danger of being lost as a central focus of Wesleyan Theology.

This volume offers a fresh look at the essential doctrine of holiness, tracing the development of holiness in both biblical Testaments, the history of the church, and in modern practice. Practical chapters examine the ways in which believers experience holiness today, the preaching of holiness, and holiness in the church.

Inspire church leaders to renew their teaching of this essential doctrine and equip them for communicating the doctrine of holiness to their congregations with this important book.

For all the confusion these days, holiness is not primarily a doctrine or even an experience, but a life! Thus, as a doctrine it rises or falls on the credibility of the people who profess it. Here are a handful of good, contemporary thinkers who get that. Their wise counsel and practical advice will help move holiness out of the realm of mere theology and into the arena of life. You are in for a treat!

—Steve DeNeff, Pastor, College Wesleyan Church

This is an excellent addition to the literature on holiness. The authors have struck a perfect balance bridging solid biblical and historical scholarship with Christian life and practice. Pastors, teachers, lay leaders and all who have an interest in Christian holiness from a Wesleyan perspective will find it to be thoughtful, insightful, practical, and helpful.

The Way Forward

A burning heart. A humble monk. A former slave turned founding bishop. A politician and a poet. Abolitionists and activists. Preachers, professors, reformers, and revolutionaries. Through these set-apart voices we witness the journey of the holiness message through the ages, and its timeless promise of God's far-reaching grace and transforming love.

And these voices have something to say to us, today. They speak in tones of hope and expectation, resounding with the promise of perfected love. They offer the assurance of restoration and reconciliation with the Father, by way of the Son and the Holy Spirit. They challenge us to embrace humility, submitting ourselves to the unrivaled reign of God. Now, more than ever, the world needs to experience, and we need to remember, this grace that enables holiness.

The Way Forward presents these voices from our past—John Wesley, Thomas a Kempis, Phoebe Palmer and more—with introductions from scholars and pastors of today.

The Way Forward assembles a number of engaging scholars and pastors to bring before the broader Wesleyan family some of the classics precious to the holiness tradition: from Thomas a Kempis to John Wesley, William Law to John Fletcher, and Richard Allen to Phoebe Palmer, those who loved and articulated the holy way are amply represented. Each selection contains both the original text as well as a contemporary commentary. Such an approach will undoubtedly help to demonstrate the ongoing importance of the tradition and is therefore greatly needed today.
