The "hole in our holiness" is that evangelicals don't look particularly holy, and, despite the flood of gospel-centered discussions, there seems to be a greater focus on personal depravity than on the pursuit of holiness. Looking to right the balances, Kevin DeYoung presents a popular-level treatment of sanctification and union with Christ, helping readers to see what matters most--being like Jesus. He shows how one can be like Christ in being joined to Christ. The market is ready for DeYoung's timely book, ready to avoid legalism and ambivalence, and they are ready for someone to articulate the inextricable relationship between grace and holiness.

Great book!!!
For so long I struggled with my sanctification wondering if it was my job to walk out the grace that God has given me, or was it God's job to make me holy and pure. This book is amazing for those struggling with the same questions. It is well written full of scripture and provides hope for the hurting heart wondering how to grow and godliness and purity.

A Focus On Personal Holiness
The Hole in Our Holiness by Kevin DeYoung is a quality book on an old fashioned value that is largely overlooked in today’s church. As a consequence he points out that holiness is lacking the church as the focus is on other areas such as grace.

He rightly asserts that grace does not mean no more law, it means that through Christ’s perfect life we have fulfilled the law but Jesus still mentions several times that we are to keep His commandments. The chapter on sexual immorality is also a telling one in a world that sex is used to sell everything and sex outside of marriage is common place how do Christians keep themselves free from this moral pollution.

The last part of the book focuses on the difference between union with God and being in communion with God, which is the deeper level of intimacy that Christians should achieve. Also the importance of repentance is focused on as we are bound to mess up and need forgiveness from God or others we have hurt.

The narration was very good, it seemed to flow along at a nice pace and it was easy to understand.

This book is a wakeup call for Christians who have been drifting along with their personal holiness expecting the grace of God to cover all their wilful sinning. Also it is a great book Christians who really want a more intimate relationship with Jesus.
