A Model for Practical Christian Holiness. Edition No. 1
VDM Publishing House, October 2008, Pages: 112
Through modern applications of the historical
Christian “mark” of “holiness,” Christian disciples
can be assured that they are following God’s will,
with behaviour coinciding with God’s revelation and
the Church’s mission.
Insights gleaned from three thinkers lead to a model
for the practical involvement of “holiness ethics”
in the modern church, with each offering a key
component to the model. Dietrich Bonhoeffer offers a
way of understanding the world that provides a
positive environment for church work. John Webster
offers an inclusive understanding of God’s holiness
and how it flows to His human creatures. Emmanuel
Levinas offers a manner of understanding how God’s
holiness-carrying people can be certain of where
they need to be active in the world. Combined, the
insights comprise a practical and encouraging model
that is highly descriptive of the activity of the
historical and modern evangelical church.
Understanding their world, themselves, and their
activity offers Christians confidence that they are
doing the right activities toward the right people
in the right place at the right time.
