Rereading good books is a great past time. I first bought this book and read it in 2004 while in Scotland one summer helping a missionary. It was in a small used book store in North Berwick not far from the fish and chips stand (both were in my usual circle of evening walking). Ironside (1876-1951) was saved though the Salvation Army but had to depart from it because of its sinless perfection (eradification of the old nature) teaching. In writing a refutation of that system of doctrine he did the church a great service and made a good contribution to the subject of holiness and our walk with God. No doubt, some of the best writing on a subject comes from one who had to study the Scripture and change from a formerly held conviction. If you are interested in what the Bible says about holiness, sanctification, sin in a believer, and the Christian walk, this would be a good read from a well-known and solid Bible teacher. Ironside was a Canadian born Bible teacher and pastor who pastored Moody Church in Chicago from 1929 to 1948.

For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil” (Ecclesiastes 11:13-14). The words judge and judgment and their cognates appear […]
The Meekness of WisdomSeptember 3, 2018
“Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? Let him show out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom” (James 3:13) Who wants to violate the first characteristic of meekness and write about it? Who wants to appear to be like the one who brags about being humble? […]
