Title / Description

Daniel Steele firmly agreed with John Wesley that Christians can and should live a life free of voluntary sin. This striving towards perfection of faith became known as the “Holiness Movement.” Originally a Methodist/Wesleyan phenomenon, the movement came to have profound effects on later Pentecostal and evangelical Christian communities. This work lays out the doctrine of sanctification, and urges readers to seek further sanctification in everyday life. Because Steele shares his own personal testimony of his faith, the book takes on a decidedly more intimate and relatable nature.
