about

What is sanctification? New Testament Holiness answers that question clearly, taking a close look at the Bible's teaching about sanctification and God's gift of a pure heart through the work of the Holy Spirit. The book will be a blessing to Christians hungry for heart purity, spiritual maturity, and a life of full consecration to God.  

New Testament Holiness appeals on three levels – as an engaging Bible study, as a challenging call and a clear road map to a deeper and higher Christian life, and as a thought-provoking devotional.

Author Thomas Cook was a lay evangelist used by God on three continents. He ministered with a God-given power to clearly and simply open the Bible's teaching about sanctification (that is, how to be holy in this life); to powerfully challenge men and women to full consecration and acceptance of God's promised gift of a pure heart by faith; and to successfully lead his listeners into this definite, real experience of sanctification and a pure heart full of love towards God and men.

Cook touched tens of thousands of souls in his lifetime, and his powerful ministry continues through "New Testament Holiness." One hundred years after Cook's death, the Holy Spirit still uses this book to bring earnest seekers into the experience of full salvation and entire sanctification. The spiritual value of this work is demonstrated by the fact that it has been in nearly continuous re-publication since it first appeared in 1902.

What's special about this new edition of New Testament Holiness?

The devotional value of the original 1902 edition is enhanced by the addition of an appendix containing the full text of no less than 36 hymns and three poems from which Cook quotes. These can be read in parallel with their mention in the various chapters, or contemplated and enjoyed on their own in quiet times of reflection while waiting on God.

As a further enhancement of the original text, editor Jim Kerwin has added many hundreds of endnotes. They're tucked out of the way at the end of the book, so as not to be a distraction; but many readers will find added value in the notes when they wish to know which Bible verse Cook quotes (he rarely included references), when they need a thumbnail introduction to the men and women from whom Cook draws, and when readers wish to know the sources from which he quotes. In addition, the editor's foreword provides a brief overview of the life of Thomas Cook and his ministry.

Today's readers will appreciate that this isn't a scanned-page clone or an OCR reworking of the original publication of Cook's book. Instead, this edition keeps 21st Century readers in mind with its fresh formatting, block quotes, new sub-headings, etc., and clarification of now-obscure words. The result is a highly readable offering of a Christian classic which illuminates the pathway to "holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord" (Hebrew 12:14).
