In Glimpses of Holiness, Ermal Kirby introduces us to a selection of the ordinary people he imagines gathering in the home of Philemon and Apphia in Colossae to hear, for the first time, the letter which they have received from the apostle Paul, who is imprisoned in Rome. As they listen and reflect, we begin to learn with them what holiness means for them in their daily lives.
The "glimpses of holiness" are there to be discovered in every chapter. The author poses a series of questions for Christians today, and shows how the experiences and reflections of the members of the church in Colossae might help us find answers to these questions.
Holiness, we say, is part of the essential character of God, and yet the road of holiness is one that we are often reluctant to take. We seem to think that holiness is a special category of discipleship, reserved for a select few. Nothing could be further from the truth, as you will quickly discover through the six studies in this book.
