Publishers Description A burning heart. A humble monk. A former slave turned founding bishop. Abolitionists and activists. Preachers, professors, reformers, and revolutionaries. Through these set-apart voices we witness the journey of the holiness message through the ages, and its timeless promise of God's far-reaching grace and transforming love.
And these voices have something to say to us, today. They speak in tones of hope and expectation, resounding with the promise of perfected love. They offer the assurance of restoration and reconciliation with the Father, by way of the Son and the Holy Spirit. They challenge us to embrace humility, submitting ourselves to the unrivaled reign of God. Now, more than ever, the world needs to experience this grace that enables holiness.
The Way Forward presents these voices from our past--John Wesley, Thomas a Kempis, Phoebe Palmer and more--with introductions from scholars and pastors of today.
