Item Description...
Are you willing to respond to the call of the relational God? Explore the way you think, talk, and act as a Christian in a postmodern world. To be holy, is it enough to live a clean life, follow a few rules, and avoid bad company? We might say yes but still end up doing too much, too little, or nothing at all. What we need is a central idea to guide us. Relational Holiness offers us this very thing by inviting us to live a holy life that is most authentic when it is centered on love-the heart of God's character. Thomas Oord and Michael Lodahl present a fresh view of holiness that is not only engaging but also responsive to the yearnings of a postmodern generation.

Publishers Description
Relational Holiness offers insight and evidence for understanding the theology of holiness by focusing on love - the core of God's nature and character - and describes how God invites us to share in a life of divine love. Thomas Oord and Michael Lodahl present this new paradigm for sanctification in a relevant and understandable style that is engaging and insightful, especially for the post-modern generation.'...Communicating holiness in relational categories and making holiness understandable today are the two passions that inspire these imaginative theologians. With insightful originality they propose that love is the core notion of holiness. Every believer's life can be enriched with this candid contemporary dialog about the holy life.'-Dr. Jerry PorterGeneral Superintendent for the Church of the Nazarene'This study calls us to center our understanding and practice of Christian holiness where John] Wesley did - in the love of God and neighbor. It also highlights Wesley's wisdom about the vital role of the spiritual practices in nurturing and shaping this love. It is a welcome contribution to recent efforts to appreciate and revitalize the tradition in which we stand.'-Randy L. Maddox Professor at Seattle Pacific University

Reviews - What do our customers think?
not what I expected  Jun 7, 2008
This book centers around the Nazarene church and is set up for group study with discussion questions at the end of each chapter. Very theological with lots of content only theology students would appreciate.
loving like god  Jun 20, 2007
an interesting exploration of what it means to incorporate the nazarene doctrines of holiness into one's daily life. more than an obsolete abstraction or a rigid following of rules, the easiest way to understand holiness is to understand that god's primary purpose is to love...
Great Book Clearly Explaining Holiness  May 8, 2007
This is absolutely the best book explaining Holiness that I have ever read. It fit my needs to a tee and I have given several copies to interested friends.
Of Limited Appeal For A Limited Audience  Mar 18, 2007
As the doctrine of Christian Holiness moves well into the background of popular western culture, a few die-hards still wonder what it all means (or meant). Oord and Lodahl take Mildred Wynkoop's view of holiness and develop it for the evangelical mind. They maintain that holiness is a God-centered relationship based on Divine Love. It is working for well-being in each and every one of life's situations. In advocating this approach, they avoid the extremes of Richard Taylor's insistence on holiness as a spiritual crisis that drives the believer into radical self-abandonment and total surrender to the cleansing power of the Holy Spirit. While Taylor may have been a bit of a radical, no one who ever knew him ever doubted his passion. For their part, Oord and Lodahl make holiness seem attainable and, one may say, even reasonable(?). A worthwhile read.
Follow-up to Wynkoop, maybe?  Jan 10, 2007
This book helps take Wynkoop's theology of love into the real world. Great book.
