So there it is. A review of each chapter within the book "The Holiness Manifesto".
Introduction: A Guiding Vision for the Future (link is to my initial finding the book)
The Context: Past and Present
The Holiness Manifesto (link is to the original manifesto)
Fresh Eyes on Holiness: Living Out the Holiness Manifesto (link is to response to original manifesto)
1. Goodness and Worship: A Perspective on Old Testament Holiness
2. Holiness in New Testament Perspective
3. Jesus and a Gospel of Holiness and (Part Two)
4. Integrated Streams of Holiness: Christian Holiness and Unity, Ancient and Future
5. The Social Vision of the Wesleyan Holiness Movement
6. Holiness: Sins Anticipated Cure
7. Holiness and the 5 Calls of God: Holiness in Postmodernity
8. Transformed by Grace: The Beauty of Personal Holiness
9. Social Holiness: Journey, Exposures, Encounters
10. Holiness in the City
11. Local Church Impact
12. Preaching as Charisma
The appendix that follows these contains 4 approaches to the definition of "Holiness" that can be useful when reading all of this, or in general.
Overall, I recommend the book. Perhaps not to be read straight through, but whenever you're hungry/in need of a reminder of this concept that is so wrapped up in our creation and new creation; yet so often misunderstood and sold short. May we continue to be a people created Holy, called Holy, and called to become Holy...in the name of Jesus.
