10.0 out of 10.0 stars

In his new book, Becoming Holy, Fountain Hendricks discusses the process of the transformation of the inner man into becoming holy, as Christ was holy.   But what is holiness?  In 1st Peter 1:15-17 the Scripture says, "But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy."  Many Christians do not know what holiness is, how to walk in holiness and why holiness is the foundation of the Christian faith.  Often a neglected foundation of the Christian faith, holiness, is a command of the Lord.  Bringing enlightenment and encouragement to readers, the author sheds light to understanding the process of becoming holy and the importance of walking in holiness.  Holiness is one not easily obtained, but is a necessary component as a Disciple of Christ.  This fascinating book is not only inspired by the Holy Spirit, but was designed specifically by the author to teach, inform, exhort and call Christians to walking in the light and the truth of the Word which leads to maturity and the development of godly character. 

Breaching the gap between professing to be a Christian and becoming holy, the book offers an uplifting overview of becoming holy, naming the attributes and identifying some of the hindrances to holiness.  As noted by the author, holiness is also often neglected from the pulpit in our modern-day society where the preaching of self-fulfillment has become a popular and misguided doctrine. 

With chapters such as: Where is Holiness?; Pride; Humility-the First Step to Becoming Holy; The Demonstration of Obedience; Hard-Work; Faith, "We walk by faith and not by sight"; Holiness; Fight and Holiness is My Husband one will not only learn what it is to be a Disciple of Christ, but also be blessed with a deeper walk of intimacy with the Lord.

Christianity is a journey and becoming holy is a process, yet, we as Disciples of Christ are called to walk in holiness as the Bible speaks of.  Theologically sound, this is a book that is highly recommended for all Christians that desire discipleship, spiritual growth and maturity.  Come and learn what is pleasing in God's sight, while finding purpose, hope and truth in Becoming Holy.
