This book traces the doctrine of holiness through the Bible in an analytical way. Instead of giving us a dry catalogue of proof texts, Dr. Oswalt underscores the practical consequences of walking in the Holy Spirit. Called to be Holy sets the Old Testament Holiness Code and the prophets' exhortations to holiness alongside the sermons of Jesus and the New Testament epistles. Thus, Dr. Oswalt shows that personal holiness is a consistent principle that runs throughout the Bible. This thoughtful book will challenge every serious reader of the Bible to live in the fullness of Christ.
