The angels in Isaiah's vision of God s heavenly temple (Isa. 6) used threefold repetition to praise His holiness, the superlative form of emphasis in the Hebrew language. Their cry tells us that nothing is as significant as the holiness of God.Tragically, the holiness of God has been obscured in our time, and as a result, the church's doctrine and ethics have been tarnished, entertainment has replaced worship in many places, the Gospel is misunderstood and neglected, and the church assimilates itself to the culture instead of seeking to transform it through the preaching of God's Word. Holy, Holy, Holy: Proclaiming the Perfections of God offers a corrective. Here, the holiness of God is defined, explored, and praised by a lineup of leading evangelical pastors and scholars, who show how it affects our worship, doctrine, and personal walks with Christ.Adapted from the lectures at the 2009 Ligonier Ministries National Conference, Holy, Holy, Holy unfolds the character of God and the holiness that sets Him apart. Here is high theology in understandable language, bringing deeper knowledge of God and promoting love for Him.

What a great study done by great teachers. One of the strengths of this study was how each writer of each chapter came together that was cemented in the scripture and the character of God. It really does not get any better than this. I was very blessed in reading this. I loved RC Sproul's Jr. sharing the importance of family worship. Not devotionals which can harden our hearts to the meaning of what we worship. My kids are grown up now and I would have love to do this and have this done when I was grown up. However, the spiritual leader (the father) needs to take leadership and ownership of this type of family worship. There is a blessing there that is missed without the father's leadership. RC Sproul also had a great chapter on the grace of God and how we have taken it for granted. He shared as a professor, how his students abused that grace and demanded justice. He then proceeded to teach them what justice is. We confuse justice and grace when we take grace for granted. We take grace for granted when we assume and demand it.

Another great teaching is learning to be. A great example of this is if you are married and others ask you what you and your spouse like to do? I love this answer for my relationship to the Lord but also my husband. "The truth of the matter is that I just like to look at my wife and wonder how it can be that she has devoted her life to me. A relationship that of mutual affection, admiration and devotion that is marked by open self giving to one another and total satisfaction in one another.

Another great strength in this study was the use of the trinity. It so lost anymore the value of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit and how they work together in the Gospel. This was done so well. This alone is well worth the read of this book. This is a short read and as of right now on kindle a great price.

It went into great detail of the contempt of God. The nature of contempt is not retaining the knowledge of God in our lives, in our hearts and in our affections. Only when we are retaining the knowledge of God, then we are consumed by him. He is a consuming fire. It is much easier to declare war on our sin when we are consumed by the Lord.

Love this book. Get it, read it, majesty in the Lord and be blessed.

This is a great compillation of lectures from a Ligonier Conference in 2005. All chapters are very enlightening and a fantastic resource of study for those who want to know more about the Holiness of our God. Pastor Sproul shows all his reverence and love towards God when writes brilliantly about the topic. A must read book for the Christian who understands that God is Sovereign and Holy. Another great book by Pastor Sproul in the Theme is "The Holiness of God".

Succinct and clear, excellent essays on God's holiness. I plan to reread it. Often neglected, God's holiness is probably the most frequently ignored attribute of God and one we need to contemplate.
