Handley C.G. Moule (1841-1920), and evangelical Anglican, succeeded Brooke Foss Westcott as the bishop of Durham. I have read many small books on sanctification and holiness and have even thrown many away. This, however, is the best thing I’ve read in a long time. Why does it seem that the older writers have a way of hitting the nail on the head? Moule takes the reader through the book in a logical order. There are limit to surrender, mainly being the sinful nature which we all carry with us. Then there is self-denial which is to ignore one’s self and take up a cros. Jesus must be seen as absolute Master and Potentate but also becomes a Friend, and a Friend Who converses with His slave. There is a difference between motive (such as being bought with a price) and means (such as prayer and Bible study) but both are available and necessary. The bottem line is surrender. He is the King and we are slaves. Without that starting point there is nothing. Powerful little book.
