The Utter Relief of Holiness

The Utter Relief of Holiness

Do you want to feel whole – but too often, feel pulled in different directions? Do you want to be holy – but think it’s beyond you?

We tend to associate holiness with striving and restriction – but what if a holy life were really about being set free from all our burdens? In THE UTTER RELIEF OF HOLINESS, John Eldredge teaches that, rather than being a daunting or distant ideal, holiness is in fact an expression of the healing of our humanity. Eldredge believes that we can be set free from all that plagues us – the inner struggle with anger, or contempt, or habitual sins – to find the genuine goodness that is available to us in Jesus Christ.

Wise, gentle and rooted in the Bible, THE UTTER RELIEF OF HOLINESS guides the reader along the paths God leads us to make us whole and holy – by his love.

Reviews

'Eldredge uses his playful style to uncover the truth about who Jesus really was... readers will find a three-dimensional Jesus' (for BEAUTIFUL OUTLAW)
Publishers Weekly
Elredge shows that holiness is a 'relief' as we learn to be the people God calls us to be. Both the novice and seasoned saint will find value in a book that compares favourably with the many classics on this challenging but glorious theme.
Christianity
What if a holy life was not a daunting ideal involving striving and restriction, but more about being set free from our burdens? That's the tantalising premise of this inspirational guidebook to discovering God's plan for how we can become genuinely good.
Woman Alive
Filled with practical examples, encouragement and illustrative scriptural quotations, Eldredge challenges us to consider developing holiness of the heart, whereby God lovingly guides, cleanses and restores us as His beloved creation, bringing us to wholeness. Starting from the 'inside out' we are enabled to transform our hearts, minds, wills and soul, thus enabling Jesus' beautiful and powerful goodness to become ours.
Reflections
'Trademark passion and personal transparency' (for BEAUTIFUL OUTLAW)
