Can We Grow in Holiness apart from the Local Church? An Obvious and a Not-So-Obvious Answer
CCEF’s David Powlison responds to a question from DG:
A couple of books to explore these issues further:
Kevin DeYoung, The Hole in Our Holiness: Filling the Gap Between Gospel Passion and the Pursuit of Godliness (Crossway, 2012)
Thabiti Anyabwile, The Life of God in the Soul of the Church: The Root and Fruit of Spiritual Fellowship (Christian Focus, 2012).
Note that Desiring God’s national conference this fall is on the theme of pursuing holiness and being pursed by a holy God.
