"The Utter Relief of Holiness" Book Review and GIVEAWAY! *CLOSED*

Congrats to the winner, coleycoupons!
From the Book:
"It may seem strange at first because most folks don't think of holiness as an utter relief. Hard perhaps, boring if we're honest, necessary like flossing, a level of spirituality we might attain to one day. But a relief? Look at it this way: Take the things you struggle with and ask yourself, 'What would life be like if I never struggled with this again?' It would be an utter relief. An absolute utter relief."

About the Author: John Eldredge has written 12 books, including Beautiful Outlaw and New York Times bestsellers Wild at Heart and Captivating (written with his wife Stasi). His books have sold more than 8 million copies. He is the Director of Ransomed Heart, a ministry devoted to helping people discover the heart of God. It has become a grassroots phenomenon with millions of followers.

My Review:
My husband and I were given John Eldredge's books Wild at Heart and Captivating as gifts a few years ago and we both enjoyed the books so much that we wanted everyone to read them.  I have to say that I feel the same about The Utter Relief of Holiness.  I'm not sure that I've ever taken the time to think of what it really means to be 'holy' before.  I know I never thought it was something that I could be personally...I must have thought it was something reserved for religious leaders, angels , etc.
After reading this book, I now know that "God's love seeks to make us whole and holy".  Being holy is something meant for everyone.  In the book, John Eldredge makes the whole concept easy to understand and describes many aspects of what it means to be holy to help you know that it is something truly attainable.

Buy It:
The hardcover book sells for $13.99 and the audio book is also available in CD as well as a download for prices ranging from $18.99 to $24.99.  Through February 28th, at the Ransomed Heart store, for every book you purchase they'll send you an extra copy to give away!
