Over the last month, I’ve been working with Jason Garwood (read what he’s written here, here, and here) on a new book project under the Grace for Sinners Book label called Be Holy: Learning the Path of Sanctification. The last several years the church has had intramural dialogue about sanctification. I’ve seen the dialogue spread through several traditions—Baptist, Presbyterian, Lutherans, non-denominational, etc.
It’s an important discussion and stems from common sense questions Christians have after being made alive by the power of the gospel. What happens next? How should I live? Is the gospel something that happened, but has little effect in the here and now?
What I love about Be Holy: Learning the Path of Sanctification is the way Jason tackles the topic with the gospel weaved throughout, rooted in the person and work of the Triune God, and with an eye towards the mission of the church. Also, his writing stems from years of pastoral ministry with an eye to ordinary Christians who are asking the type of questions I mentioned above.
Our plan is to release Be Holy: Learning the Path of Sanctification in the middle of December in all digital formats (mobi via Amazon, epub, and pdf) and also in paperback (via Createspace and Amazon). I will be sharing an excerpt in one week as an amuse buche of what you can expect in the main course.
