Item description for Holiness: God's Plan for Fullness of Life by Henry Blackaby...
Overview "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 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. He writes, "The salvation of the nation has little to do with Washington or Hollywood-it has to do with the people of God!" As referenced in 2 Chronicles 7:14, Blackaby notes that the redemption of America lies in the repentance of the people of God. He challenges readers by adding, "If America depended on your prayer life, would there be revival?" Revival waits on the holiness of His people; this book provides the path that will lead us back.

More About Henry Blackaby
Henry T. Blackaby is the founder and president emeritus of Blackaby Ministries International, an organization built to help people experience God.
Born in British Columbia, Dr. Blackaby has devoted his lifetime to ministry. He has served as a music director, education director, and pastor in churches in California and Canada, as well as president of Canadian Baptist Theological College for seven years and president of the Canadian Southern Baptist Conference. He has provided leadership to thousands of pastors and laymen across North America and has spoken to missionaries and other groups in over ninety countries of the world.
Dr. Blackaby studied English and history at the University of British Columbia as an undergraduate and earned his B.D. and Th.M. from Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary. He holds four honorary doctorate degrees.
In 1970, Dr. Blackaby followed God’s call to pastor a tiny church in Saskatoon, Canada. Not only did Faith Baptist Church grow to many times its original membership, but it led to the founding of thirty-eight new churches and became a center for pastoral training.
Dr. Blackaby went on to serve on staff at the North American Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention. Through the Home Mission Board, he led revival and spiritual awakening in the life of the convention. He also served as special assistant to the presidents of the International Mission Board and LifeWay Christian Resources. Although he is now officially retired, Dr. Blackaby continues to provide consultative leadership in the life of the Christian community.
Blackaby has published an array of spiritually influential messages in his lifetime, most notably Experiencing God: Knowing and Doing the Will of God (1990), which has sold 7 million copies and has been translated into over 45 languages. His books, Experiencing God Together and Experiencing God Day by Day Devotional, both won the Gold Medallion Award.
Henry lives with his wife, Marilynn, in Rex, Georgia. He has five children (Richard, Tom, Melvin, Norman, and Carrie), all of whom are serving in Christian ministry, and fourteen grandchildren. His long-range goal is to encourage revival and spiritual awakening in the United States, Canada, and across the world through speaking, praying, enlisting, writing and mentoring. His hobbies are reading and traveling.

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.
So you really want to be a Christian? Dec 14, 2003
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.
