Hearts established, not in our own righteousness, but in the holiness of God - this is the root of being holy! When we are cleansed by the blood of Christ and committed to serving God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, then we are established in His holiness.

This is one of the most compelling books I have read in a long time. The author speaks frankly and clearly. He strikes at the heart of the issue of holy living while encouraging those who strive for holiness to keep off the slippery slope of legalism, yet not succumb to a watered down truth that says, "If it's okay for me then it's okay." The book moves quickly, but it is not an easy read if you're going to absorb the many, many excellent points Deneff makes. I have something underlined on almost every page! If you are not at least acquainted with the holiness movement and/or Wesleyanism, you may not understand the passion with which Deneff writes. Those who grew up Wesleyan or Reformed Baptist and have grappled with the legalistic possibilities within the doctrine of sanctification will appreciate Deneff's candor. Those who have not given much thought to holiness but have felt like there must be something more (a deeper passion or calling) to discipleship than "repent, believe, confess, receive" will be able to hone the depths of their passion for Christ if they read Deneff's book alongside their study of Scripture. I am an avid, and critical reader. This book will be on my shelf for reference for a long time. Thank you Steve Deneff.

The book is an excellent work by Scott Deneff, a Wesleyan Christian writer. The book starts off with some basic psychology background in needs and self actualization and how that applies to Holiness or Sanctification in Christian living. Later, the book gets very in depth in discussing areas in every Christians relationship with God that need addressing on a regular basis. The last part of the book goes into Christ's persona written with a frank tone that is honest and occasionally cutting and personally challenging.

The only negative comment I can make for the book is that I really wished there had been a short chapter that "wrapped things up" and brought the authors thoughts into a summary or something similar to a conclusion. Instead the book ends abruptly as if the computer printer ran out of paper.

The book is printed in soft cover with fairly easy to read type and was well manufactured.

. The teaching in this book is excellent. However, it must be read carefully. It is very easy to misunderstand what Steve is trying to say and to jump to conclusions. For instance, another review complains that Steve is calling Jesus a Lord of darkness because Steve compares to Jesus to a black hole in his book.
. However, the point Steve is attempting to make is that our very lives need to revolve around Jesus, just like matter is revolving (and being sucked into) a black hole. Often our lives revolve around our families, our jobs, our church, etc. But holiness is having our life revolve completely around Jesus.
. So, Steve's writing is confrontive and challenges some of the preconcieved ideas the reader might have, but nothing in his writing is un-Christian or non-holiness. Just like the Bible, it can be misinterpreted wrongly by an over-zealous few.
. I really enjoyed reading "More Than Forgiveness." It changed a lot of my misconceptions concerning holiness and challenged me to make sure that all that I am is centered on Jesus. Every holiness preacher should read it and take its teaching to heart. It has made it into a number of my sermons.
. My only complaint (and it is a big one) is that I don't enjoy his writing style. I am a very logical thinker and like to go directly from Point A to Point B. Steve has a tendency to jump around. I found myself confused quite a number of times as I tried to figure out what point he was trying to make. Or even what point he was on. Was he still on the same point or had he jumped back to a previous one without warning me? I had to read chapter two a couple of times before I figured out what he was trying to say. I would have enjoyed the book a lot more if it was structured better so there would be less confusion.
. Other than that, I found the book to be thoroughly Wesleyan and Christ-focused. It should be required reading at Holiness Colleges. In fact, his other book "Whatever Became of Holiness?" was required reading in my Doctrine of Holiness class.
. If someone could rewrite this book in a clear, well-though out manner, it would be worth any price.
