Review: Evangelical Holiness
This book consists of five recent addresses given by Iain Murray the veteran preacher and co-founder of Banner of Truth. The messages cover a wide range of issues: evangelical holiness, the Bible, apostasy, controversy and the fourth commandment.
Mr Murray shows in each message how important the subject is and carefully and clearly teaches using God’s word as his bedrock. Mr. Murray’s writing is enhanced by many interesting quotes from past worthies and cross references to other works.
Mr Murray’s writing encourages the reader to be a thinking Christian, discerning the signs of the times. As a good historian he not only educates us about the past but applies to the present. As a good preacher he not only teaches us but also challenges us. As a good author he is not only clear but is also profound.
This is a timely and important book that deserves to be widely read. Highly recommended.
