Way of Holiness

Stephen F. Olford, Author, Charles F. Stanley, Foreword by Crossway Books $14.99 (160p) ISBN 978-0-89107-977-4
According to popular writer and preacher Olford, our lives belong rightfully to Christ. Accordingly, he takes this premise into practical life by offering spiritual devotions and everyday exercises. Each chapter opens with a section of scripture as the basis for nurturing some aspect of the Godly life. Olford examines eight areas: sinfulness, forgiveness, holiness, Christ-centeredness, yieldedness, spirit-fullness, activeness and alertness. For example, Olford's reflections on sinfulness are guided by biblical passages from James 4:13-17 and Galatians 5:16-23. Each chapter contains questions for further study. Much of the book is simply a stitching together of Bible verses, accompanied by Olford's spiritual cheerleading. (Jan.)
