Overview God, in His holiness, is grieved by our lack of it. In this worthy book, Blackaby urges believers to look inward, to see sin from God's perspective, and to live to the standard that He has set in Scripture.
Publishers Description "If there is anything that characterizes God's people in America today, it is the loss of the fear of God," states Henry Blackaby. When you do not fear God, he contends, you will not fear sin. The troubling result of this issue is that many Christians fail to recognize that they have sinned against God. The lack of holiness within the Church has reached epidemic levels. "True revival can only come," notes Blackaby, "when the people of God return to a healthy, holy fear of Him." God, in His holiness, is grieved by our lack of it. In his worthy book, Blackaby urges believers to look inward, to see sin from God's perspective, and to live the standard that He has set up in Scripture. He writes, "The salvation of the nation has little do with Washington or Hollywood - it has to do with the people of God "

More About Henry Blackaby & Mel Foster
Henry Blackaby Dr. Henry Blackaby, author of "Experiencing God, "provides consultative leadership on prayer for revival and spiritual awakening in the lives of many Christians around the world. Born in Canada, Blackaby earned his BD and ThM from Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary. In 1970, Dr. Blackaby began pastoring a dying church in Saskatoon, Canada . Under his leadership the church not only thrived, but spawned thirty-eight new churches and became a center for pastoral training. Blackaby and his wife, Marilynn, have five children and fourteen grandchildren. They live in Atlanta, Georgia . Mel Blackaby Dr. Melvin Blackaby, Henry s son, is coauthor (with his father) of the Gold Medallion winner "Experiencing God Together. "He earned his M.Div. and Ph.D. from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. He travels extensively as a conference speaker, but his first love is the pastorate. Blackaby serves as senior pastor of Bow Valley Baptist Church in Cochrane, Alberta, Canada, where he lives with his wife, Gina, and their three children."
Blackaby does not shy away from real issues distracting the western church. He leaves the reader desiring to seek the Lord with a renewed passion and humblity. Revival is necessary and building within America--this book will help fuel that fire! Despite it's deep spiritual content, the book is relatively short and a quick read.
Challenging and "painfully" accurate! Jan 18, 2005
This was a really fabulous book! If you really believe in the promises of God read this book.

Holiness is a charged word. Many associate it with backwoods ministers and "holy rollers" who take legalism and ignorant religion to the extreme. However, Blackaby strives to help the reader understand holiness as it is in the Bible, from God's perspective. Blackaby presents these three points: today's Christians no longer fear God; they cannot see sin from God's perspective; and they fail to walk on God's "highway of holiness." It is the lack in these three areas, Blackaby contends, that explain the lackadaisical and uncaring attitude present in many churches and individuals today.
This book crosses all denominations and should prick the heart that truly wants to serve God and live the Christian life to the fullest. (In some areas I felt that Blackaby repeated himself a little, but perhaps that was simply to reiterate key points that some readers could miss.) Overall, I felt challenged after reading the book. Too often Christians allow sin to get in the way of their fellowship with God, and Blackaby exposes this disaster for what it really is. Every Christian who is serious with God should read this book, and the short length allows Blackaby to quickly deliver his message.
