A Christian theology of holiness is an exercise of holy reason; it has its context and its content in the revelatory presence of the Holy Trinity which is set forth in Holy Scripture; it is a venture undertaken in prayerful dependence upon the Holy Spirit; it is an exercise in the fellowship of the saints, serving the confession of the holy people of God; it is a work in which holiness is perfected in the fear of God; and its end is the sanctifying of God's holy name.' So begins John Webster's masterful account of holiness. Webster is already well-known as one of Britain's finest systematic theologians and teachers of dogmatics, and his many admirers will be delighted by this uncompromising and thoroughgoing trinitarian theology of holiness, which is accessible to a wide range of audiences, including ordinands, students of theology, and interested laypeople. The book - which is based on the prestigious Day-Higginbotham lectures delivered in the University of Toronto in 2002 - offers a succinct account of a central and neglected theme in Christian teaching and practice. Webster's 'theological essay on holiness" (p.1) is a concentrated recollection of the reformers' fundamental theological insights of in the contemporary horizon of a challenged church. His plea for holiness is well based in that fundament of the church which cannot be disturbed by its current failures or decreasing acceptance. And this makes the essay a strong and strenghtening theological plea." Michael Weinrich, Freie Universität Berlin, Scottish Journal of Theology, Volume 58/3, 2005.

From the Back Cover:

A world-renowned theologian here offers a succinct account of a central yet neglected theme in Christian teaching -- the holiness of God.

Integrating biblical studies, theology, and practical application, John Webster provides a thoroughgoing trinitarian understanding of God's holiness with highly relevant results. According to Webster, God's holiness is known not in his simple transcendence but in his gracious and free relationship to his people. Such holiness finds an echo in the holiness of the Christian community, especially in worship and witness, and in the life of the individual disciple.

Profound yet readily accessible to a wide range of readers, Webster's "Holiness offers an ideal entry into reflection on the Christian God.
