Description

How do you respond to the good news of your redemption in Christ?

The Christian life is a process of growing in holiness. This kind of growth is gradual, and obstacles are plentiful. Thankfully, we don't have to go it alone. God has given us his Spirit so we can overcome temptation and become more and more conformed to the image of Christ. But how does the Spirit work? What's the nature of our own personal involvement in the process? And how do we know if we're making progress?

Drawn from the lectures of beloved theologian R. C. Sproul, Growing in Holiness explores the doctrine of sanctification, offering insightful commentary on themes such as developing perseverance, overcoming barriers to growth, dealing with feelings of inadequacy, cultivating love for God and others, exhibiting the fruit of the Spirit, and much more. Whether you're a new believer who wants to understand what the Christian life is all about or you've been a Christian for some time but are frustrated by a lack of progress, this book is your guide to pursuing a holy life.


"Nothing is more critical than the priority of sanctification in the life of the church. In these days, it is popular to make much of justification--what our sovereign God does for unworthy sinners. But there is pervasive indifference to the doctrine of sanctification--what the believer pursues to the honor of our all-worthy God. No one has been better equipped to address this than R. C. Sproul. It is wonderful to think of him now experiencing glorification and still speaking to us about sanctification."--John MacArthur, pastor, author, and conference speaker
