Holiness as the separation from sin and, therefore, dedication to God should be at the very core of the teachings of the International Pentecostal Holiness Church. Sadly, many members today do not identify with the core truths of sanctification. Not only does the traditional homiletic lack resonance with the modern church body, but the whole notion of holiness remains a mystery to many.The recent and noticeable absence of teaching and preaching on the concepts of sanctification and holiness has led to a widening chasm between church members and the original position on sanctification as the Wesleyan doctrine defines it. Author Paul Evans invites readers to reevaluate the definitions of these cornerstones of faith. Welcoming a deep conversation of their definitions, significance, and histories, he calls people to engage in daily holy living in the most practical sense. Focusing on the issues of misunderstanding, misinterpretation, and simple apathy, Holiness Reconsidered revitalizes the very idea that practical holiness must be understood as a lifestyle first. In a multi-dimensional discussion, he addresses: Doctrinal explanations of sanctification Paul's testimony of his struggle with sin and consequent conclusions What the doctrine of sanctification attempts to answer The current existential crisis The realistic expectations of holiness Join the conversation and open your own potential to the life found in choosing to live in righteousness."
