Within these pages are the last two previously unpublished works from notable American evangelical theologian, Donald. G. Bloesch.
In his spiritual autobiography, Faith in Search of Obedience, Bloesch describes the foundation upon which own theology is based, namely, "a faith in search of obedience." This honest and challenging work reveals and reminds how we are justified by faith alone, but that faith drives us to obey and delight in God's law as we strive to perfect love through the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
The Paradox of Holiness presents the theology of spiritual life as it is shaped and defined by the Word of God. Through this theological exposition, Bloesch presents and explores the paradox that exists in the pursuit of holiness for those who believe.
For the theologian, pastor or lay person who is seeking to combine Word and Spirit, doctrine and life, into an active theology, this two-in-one volume by Donald Bloesch provides an honest and sober account of the challenges that may arise throughout the Christian pilgrimage, while pointing toward the hope, encouragement and new life that comes through the triumph of Christ on the cross.
