Publisher's Summary

If God is holy, then he can’t sin. If God can’t sin, then he can’t sin against you. If he can’t sin against you, shouldn’t that make him the most trustworthy being there is? Best-selling author Jackie Hill Perry, in her much anticipated follow-up to Gay Girl, Good God, helps us find the reason we don’t trust God - we misunderstand his holiness. In Holier Than Thou, Jackie walks us through Scripture, shaking the dust off of “holy” as we’ve come to know it and revealing it for what it really is: good news. Here, we will see that God is not like us. He is different. He is holy. And that’s exactly what makes him trustworthy. As it turns out, God being “holier than thou” is actually the best news in the world, and it’s the key to trusting him.

Holy Holy Holy

All I can say after reading this book is that I want to know Him more. This book made me want to fall down and worship. The only holiness I understood growing up was a list of man made rules. This holiness is all about God. This holiness is God. It’s who He is! Thank you, Jackie Hill Perry for the breakdown.

Theological Poetry

Holy Justice was my favorite Chapter, The ending brought it all together face to face! His Holiness is something I will hold tighter to, now that I have a proper view of that word Holy.

CONVICTED

This book is amazing and my heart goes out to Jackie because I am certain she WALKED through something serious to birth this. I’m so thankful to The Lord for this resource/reminder that left me speechless and in a posture of repentance. This book worth purchasing on Audible and via hard copy. Excellent Read.

Fathers Heart

As poetic as it may sound , words tunes spiritual frequencies and that is what this audio book represent to me. It opens up a vista of God's imminent character that we ought to reflect ourselves. A beautiful poetic expression of God's heart.

So Nice, I Read it twice!

I love Jackie. I'm glad she read her own book unlike some other teachers. It helps convey the message. She truly grows with every book and opened my eyes to things that I had never thought about before.

change is going to come

loved this book. I'm glad I decided to listen to it cause if I didn't I might not have been able to finish it cause of my busy schedule. I was in an sinful relationship with someone and everytime I listened to the book it reminded me of God's holiness and that he wasn't ANY where in that mess. her voice has a nice tone and gives emphasis when needed. thank you Jackie.

Great book, great performance.

This was a profound book, so much so that I went and bought a paper copy just so I could go back and underline and take notes. I am so thankful that JHP chose to record her book with her own voice because those of us who know and follow her are used to it, so it was just like sitting back and listening to one of her sermons.

This book has a lot of substance, so it requires full focus and attention, I found myself having to go back 30s a few times to re-hear something weighty that just got discussed. But I think it is a great way to take this book in.

theologically rich and beautifully written/read

The author makes the explores the holiness of God in a way that is both accessible and awe-inspiring.

Her writing and reading style is poetic and rich in imagery, which may not be to everyone's taste, but I thoroughly enjoyed this book and have found it to be fuel for my own devotion.

Incredible

I loves listening to the book, can’t wait to read the physical copy, it really debunked and helped me unlearn some moral values I had regarding the holiness of God. I love the way Jackie writes, so refreshing

Transforming

As a newly saved person (8 months) and still struggling with certain strongholds—this audio book was extremely helpful in guiding me to the realisation that my struggles were rooted in unbelief. And exposed me to a renewed view of God, that he’s Holy. I already knew that of course, but as we all know there’s a difference in knowing and understanding.

Jackie paints a picture so clear and distinctive, a true vessel for the Lords work especially for under 25s like me who grew up in a generation/ mindset so contrary to God’s holiness.

Praise be the God.
