A warmly personal book, it is also scholarly, well written, and well researched. This is a welcome addition to a growing number of books calling for a return to holiness, not only in the Pentecostal/Charismatic churches, but also in all the churches of Christendom.”—Vinson SynanDean EmeritusRegent University School of Divinity“Dr. Harris has blessed both the church and the academy with a very readable book that also masterfully blends well the disciplines of biblical studies, historical, systematic, and pastoral theology—a group that is notorious for not often getting along well.

While its impact will certainly be most strongly felt in the ‘sanctified church,’ it is a valuable resource for anyone interested in both the doctrine and the practice of holiness for the twenty-first century.”—Bernie A. Van De WalleProfessor of Historical and Systematic TheologyAmbrose University College“This book explores the meaning of ‘in the world, but not of the world’ for contemporary Christians, shedding new light on the religious heritage of the Holiness tradition from several points of view—biblical, historical, theological, and practical.

It is a helpful guide for people of faith seeking understanding of holiness and its relevance to everyday living.”—Cheryl J. SandersProfessor of Christian EthicsHoward University School of Divinity“Professor Antipas Harris has pointed us in a direction theology must move to penetrate the tissue of the church for days to come.

Holiness ever has been an essential mark of the church. It is no less than exciting to ponder what its shape will take in our day. The crucial matters of personal piety in tension with life and death issues of justice promise to complicate the theological project in an exceedingly wonderful way. In this book Dr. Harris performs a splendid service by insisting that our work probes this complexity.”—William Turner Jr.Professor of the Practice of HomileticsDuke Divinity School“Dr. Harris’ work speaks to the heart of the next generation of leaders about an absolutely essential element to the life-changing power of the biblical story—a life of holiness that is itself a reflection of God’s love lived out in surrender and sacrifice to the transformative power of the Spirit in every aspect of our lives.

This book is certainly an enjoyable read and a theologically provocative experience for all contemporary Christians.”—Tommy A. CasarezSystematic TheologianLatin American Bible Institute“This book explores the meaning of ‘in the world, but not of the world’ for contemporary Christians, shedding new light on the religious heritage of the Holiness tradition from several points of view—biblical, historical, theological, and practical.

It is a helpful guide for people of faith seeking understanding of holiness and its relevance to everyday living.”—Cheryl J.
