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.

Great Series (Not The Book)

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

Experiencing the holiness of God

Scriptural and utterly compelling. I found myself in awe by RC's lectures on God's holiness.

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.

Understand!

This author puts the Holiness of God into perfect understanding. No confusion remains by the end of the book. Must read!

awesome!

I don't know if this is the exact same as the book. it is Dr. Sproul speaking, but sounds more like a classroom lecture series than s narration of a book. but riveting none the less!

Sproul should be read by all Christians

Sproul has blessed me immensely with his heart changing, truthful, and fatherly teaching. This book is an easy read and I probably the best introduction to his works. He is missed and his legacy lives on.

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...

R C Sproul His Magnus Opus

The great man has gone to his reward, here you will find him at full flow, passionate, persuasive, a man of utter conviction and here is his conviction on perhaps the greatest and yet for us the most troubling of themes, listen, listen well, and know the God that we deal with.

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.
