The Utter Relief of Holiness

What an utter relief it would be to be set free from all that plagues us-the inner struggle with anger, or contempt, the habitual sins. In the depths of your being, you ache to live a life of goodness; we all do. (Something caused you to pick up a book with the word holiness in the subtitle!) We are made for goodness just as we are made to breathe, just as we are made to love. Whatever life has to throw at you, friends, goodness is your strength, your refuge in the storm. And there is a way to be good again. Here is a book that explores the beauty of the genuine goodness available to us in Jesus Christ and guides us through the process whereby God sets us free by making us whole and holy through his love. You will be relieved. Utterly. Previously published as The Utter Relief of Holiness.

Praise

"Ever full of gusto and nerve, Eldredge is as strict and orthodox a pastor as A.W. Tozer, but with hiking boots and a zipline."—Publisher's Weekly
"Eldredge uses his playful style to uncover the truth about who Jesus really was. With an eyebrow-raising warning about the "poison of religion," he urges readers to turn from religious power displays and legalism and instead spend time falling in love with the man, Jesus. Eldredge repeats tales from the Gospels to reveal a leader who was both humorous and confrontational, generous and moody. Eldredge clearly loves his subject, almost chuckling in delight at Jesus' antics. Readers get an intriguing glimpse of Jesus waiting his turn in line, "snorting" in anger, and artfully outsmarting his enemies. ... Still, readers will find a three-dimensional Jesus and may find themselves re-reading scripture with an eye on characters' feelings."—Publishers Weekly, on Beautiful Outlaw
"Eldredge's trademark passion and personal transparency offer another inspiring challenge that could revolutionize lives as did his Wild at Heart."Christian Retailing, on Beautiful Outlaw, Editor's Pick
"Eldredge's trademark passion and personal transparency offer another inspiring challenge that could revolutionize lives as did his Wild at Heart."Christian Retailing, on Beautiful Outlaw
"The Eldredges' newest book has bestseller written all over it...They are honest and forthright, never skirting a difficult issue; instead, they offer hope, insight, and their own lives as examples of what God can accomplish. Their summation of marriage. It can be done. And it is worth it. So is this book."
Publishers Weekly , on Love and War (Starred Review)
"The best, most insightful book I have read in the last five years. Every man and wife and every mother of a boy really should read this book."—Charles Swindoll, author of The Church Awakening, on Wild at Heart
