Set Apart by Bruce Wilkinson Oct 17, 2007
This is an extraordinary and powerful book. Bruce Wilkinson has an uncanny ability to focus on the multiple kernals of wisdom that come from a single passage of Scripture. His book helps readers undersand that a life of holiness is not only possible, but within the reach of every Christian. It is not about "holier than thou" attitudes, but about allowing the Holy Spirit to rein supreme in each of our lives. The chapter on sexual immorality, and how husbands and wives can help each overcome sexual temptation, is especially helpful.
Saved and not fully living for Christ...? Jun 23, 2007
A lot of the book was helpful. Unfortunately, what I thought was horribly wrong in the book, from what I remember, is what he said in the beginning part of the book; something like just being saved was ok and that you did not have to be a disciple of Christ to get in to heaven. He used a verse or some verses to support this yet he seemed to not take into account important scriptures, one like Matthew 7:23.
From what I got from it; he was saying you do not have to be totally devoted to Christ to be saved. I think that is an erroneous teaching that may lead people astray from having a deep relationship with Christ and may even decieve people into thinking they are saved just to maybe, unfortunately, end up not going to Heaven. Don't be decieved by erroneous teaching.
I do not know why he wrote something like that. A lot of the book seems helpful and maybe he did not mean harm, so that's why I gave him 2 stars.
A lot of the book seems helpful too but do not be decieved. A good book explaining what I mean is John Bevere-Driven by Eternity: Making Your Life Count Today & Forever .

Get ready to be changed! Jun 2, 2006
When I first saw this book I thought it was just another in a long line of books on holiness, but I was mistaken. This book defines holiness in a practical way and makes you think that it truly is possible for us to live in holiness. The section that deals with temptation prompted me to initiate a converstaion with my spouse of 12 years and it brough a new light to our relationship. The biggest challenge to me was the section on daily quiet time. For the first time, I was challenged to write out a schedule of what I will do during my quiet time each day. I have never done that before. In a few short weeks I have gone from ho hum quiet times that I could hardly stretch into 10 minutes to amazing times with the Lord that changed my life. I now set my alarm earlier so that I can have extra time with the Lord because 30 minutes is no longer satistying. Get ready if you are serious about holiness. This book will change your life.
"Strait is the gate, and narrow is the way" Nov 21, 2003
As it is written in Matthew 7, the narrow way leads to life, and this is a profound, brilliant book that helps modern mankind find their way to that little road, that is covered with billboards and brambles these days; it will bolster your will, and also is forthright to point out where we are straying, and blocking the light from our lives. Part One, "Turning Your Heart Toward Holiness", explains what the Biblical references are to the terms "holiness" and "separation", two words that have a daunting sound. Perhaps one of the reasons this book has not gained as large a readership as Dr. Wilkinson's other books (another reason would be that this is a much tougher read than his others) are the words on the cover; most of us want to "join the crowd" rather than be "set apart", and holiness seems like such a lofty, unobtainable goal, but with the help of this book both ideals become accessible. The chapters in this section delineate the different stages of holiness, and the preparation of consecrating one's life to the Lord.
Part Two is "Victory Over Temptation", with Chapter 5 giving us "straightforward, commonsense communication about daily living in holiness", Chapter 7, has "Anti-Temptation Tools for Victory", and Chapter 8, "The World's Toughest Temptation", which is of course, lust ! It has candid teaching on intimacy in marriage that might surprise some people, and should be required reading for anyone contemplating marriage or already wed. Part Three, "Habits of Holiness", is empowering and life-changing. Chapter 10, "Foundational Habits", revolutionized my prayer life, and the journaling tools given in "The Habit of Journaling" are wonderful. There is also more on prayer in this chapter, giving 14 categories to concentrate on, such as Spiritual Vision, Service, and Intercession. Dr. Wilkinson recommends that four to six categories are enough to focus on for the first year.
The final chapter is on "Praise and Fasting", and how fervent praise and joy help us in our quest for holiness, and gives examples of different fasts that many find to be a spiritual aid. It pained me to reach the end of this book, because it nourished and taught me so much; however, it has many sections that I will be using for reference, and many passages that I have underlined, that will be re-read countless times for guidance and inspiration. God bless Dr. Wilkinson, who truly has encouraged me in my "personal pilgrimage towards holiness".
