Making the connection between living a holy life and following Christ’s example of love, H. Ray Dunning provides spiritual guidance for Christians who want to grow in grace. His treatment of the joy and comfort that results from holy living is both helpful and encouraging. Inviting readers to return to the biblical meanings and descriptions of the holy life, Dunning challenges believers to cultivate a holy walk with God—and he provides guidance for that effort. His exploration and explanation of key spiritual disciplines in the life of the Christian will benefit pastors and lay persons for years to come.
From the time I first sat under his teaching, H. Ray Dunning has been the pivotal theological influence on my understanding of the Holy God. My preaching, theology, and pastoral practice reflect the shaping that took place under his influence. Read reverently, think deeply, and live gratefully.
