Sadly, not a book

This is a series of messages. I was hoping to hear an actual book read by Dr. Sproul!

Explicit teaching regarding God's holiness.

Dr. Sproul's narration is the same as his daily ministry programs. He does an excellent job communicating such an important topic.

Insightful, but little gospel application

Over the years, I've come to deeply value R. C. Sproul's exegetical approach to Scripture and his reverence for God's beauty, wisdom, and holiness. The first five or six chapters of this book explore God's holiness--transcendence, justice, omniscience, etc.--based on the book of Isaiah in a very insightful way. However, the last few chapters of the book surprised me. Sproul typically explains, rather than dramatizing his subject, but the last few chapters of this book degenerate into reconstructing Isaiah's experiences (beyond the words of the biblical text) and dramatic depictions of Isaiah's emotions at God's terrifying holiness. A lot of adjectives, repeated calls for the reader/listener to be struck with fear and awe. While we certainly should be struck with awe of God, the Christian's relationship with God is more than fear!

The second half of the book did not really allow the text to speak for itself, nor did Sproul discuss those steps in depth: theological or practical applications for the lives of the believer and unbeliever. Perhaps the final chapters could have explored God's holiness as displayed by both God the Father and Jesus Christ in relation to the Gospel.

Great Series (Not The Book)

This is a fantastic series by Sproul. Do not get it confused with the book “The Holiness Of God”

God is holy and we are not.

If you think you have a good understanding of God's holiness, listen to Dr. Sproul's thoughts on it. We don't understand how "other" God is from us, and therefore don't understand His complete holiness. We humans are born sinners. We can't expect God's grace, because grace is voluntary. "Don't ever ask God for justice; you might get it." (Ch. 15, 19:10) The only way that God will bestow His incredible grace and mercy on me or you is for each to accept the one and only way He has provided for that to happen: by accepting the sacrifice His Son, Jesus, made on the cross, and His resurrection from the dead. Only the blood of Jesus can make a sinful human acceptable in the eyes of this holy God.

This book is not a book of sermons; it is like sitting down next to Dr. Sproul and listening to him reason with you as to why "God is holy and we are not." An extremely worthwhile listen.

A must-listen for any Christian!

To learn about the Holiness of God is to grow closer to him. Sproul will both educate you and give you a stirred pain for the Lord that will cause you to desire to dive into God's Word.

Get the other version of the book!

This audio version of R.C. Spouls "The Holiness of God" book is NOT an unabridged version of the actual book.
This is a series of 15 talks/lectures by R.C. Sproul from Ligonier Ministries radio program "renewing your mind". You will be reminded of it at the beginning and the end of each chapter of this version (including address and contact number of the ministry).
While the topic is the same, it is not a reading of the actual book. I'm two chapters in and it varies quite a lot from what I can see compared to my kindle version of the book.
I'm getting a refund and the proper unabridged version.

This should not be listed as an audiobook in unabridged format. But as abridged radio, speech or lecture...

Great book, very easy listening to RC's narration!

Listened to this in just 3 sessions. Really helpful, RC mixes theological and biblical accuracy with anecdotes and thought provoking application.

Profanity exposed

A Careful and explicit exposition of Holiness so that the reader can be in no doubt about the nature of the God of israel both old testament and New . This book will leave you wanting more of our Holy God, terrifying and traumatising as that may be in our fallen and profane state.
