A profound biblical examination of the divine work of sanctification.
The mandate for holiness is based in the very character and person of God: we are to be holy because God is holy. His grace never leaves a man where it finds him. Grace always transforms the sinner into a saint—a holy man. God’s will is for His people to be holy, and the explanations of why and how we become holy are throughout the Bible.
Explaining the tension between positional and progressive holiness, Joel Beeke and Michael Barrett expound the doctrine of sanctification and show that it is the application of the gospel to our daily lives. If you’ve ever considered why, if we are saved by grace alone, holiness matters, this book is for you.

In recent days, we have witnessed a renewed interest in Reformed theology, and in this we rejoice. But there is one area that has been sadly overlooked and needs to be addressed, namely, the doctrine of sanctification. This book, A Radical, Comprehensive Call to Holiness, provides the necessary antidote to this omission. Well-designed and thoroughly studied, this volume by Drs. Joel Beeke and Michael Barrett is certain to be a valuable and trusted aid in your Christian walk.

The biblical emphasis of this book, strongly reinforced by excellent Puritan teachings, makes this volume a golden treasury for the modern reader. All who are travellers on the road of true holiness have heaven itself as their sure destination.

This book has come to you at this moment to help you magnificently to address your life, and increasingly so, to this incredible end of attaining more and more of the holiness of God. What a goal! What a heavenly purpose for daily living. Pursue it by His sufficient grace!
Conference Speaker and author, Aberystwyth, Wales
It is genuinely refreshing to find a current book on holiness so vigorous and earnest, concerned to unite faith and life so closely and warmly. Christ-centered at its core, it is sweetly clear in its doctrine and strongly compelling in its demands, while always pastorally sensitive and practically helpful.
