Synopses & Reviews
God's call to holy worship and living has echoed through the centuries. By way of Christ's obedience-even to his death-all people may now fulfill this calling. All members of Christ's body are summoned and empowered by the Holy Spirit to a life of holy conduct. Though for now the whole vision is incomplete, every Christian tradition contributes its own shade of meaning.
All Things Needed for Godliness offers a portrait of Christian holiness as proclaimed and practiced in a variety of faith traditions. From the Orthodox Church to Pentecostalism, representatives of these traditions sketch out the distinct way each group understands and expresses holiness. By presenting this rich panorama of holiness, this book seeks to promote worship, affirm Christian unity, witness to Christ's transforming power, encourage conformity to Christ's will, and thus serve the mission of God.
