About the Book



In Holier than Thou, the much anticipated follow-up to Gay Girl, Good God, bestselling author Jackie Hill Perry helps us see that understanding God's holiness is the key to trusting him.



Book Synopsis



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?

Bestselling 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. In these pages, 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.



Review Quotes




In a world consumed with self-discovery, self-absorption, and self-worship, the people of God need regular reminders to lift our eyes to a higher Object than this earthly plane can offer. Jackie brings to bear her prodigious gift with words on the Bible's message of God's transcendent holiness. She offers us not just a God worthy of our worship, but of our complete trust and obedience.
--Jen Wilkin, Author and Bible Teacher

Art and theology have met. Many times reading theology can feel so impersonal that many people view it as irrelevant. However, when art and theology meet, we get the Psalms, Parables, Prophets, and more. I'm glad that this generational voice is a symphonic blend of the sorts. Holier Than Thou is a must read. Many in this generation and beyond may find this work as a gateway into theology and more importantly to understanding the holiness of God and their call to reflect it in and through Jesus Christ.
--Dr. Eric M. Mason, Lead Pastor of Epiphany Fellowship Church

Holier Than Thou by Jackie Hill Perry is a surprising book. It doesn't scold us into holiness. It lifts us into holiness. How? By helping us see and understand God more clearly, and by helping us feel more seen and understood. Jackie's book helped me. It can help you too.
--Ray Ortlund, Renewal Ministries, Nashville

Too often--and to our dismay--we try to be holy apart from knowing Him who is holy. Holier than Thou by Jackie Hill Perry offers an awe-inspiring view of God as she invites us to celebrate the goodness, majesty, and glory of God's holiness in all of his justice, righteousness, and purity. With biblical wisdom and theological insight, Jackie turns our gaze upon the beauty of the Lord in his holiness--faithfully reminding us that by beholding, we believe, and so we become.
--Melissa Kruger, author and director of Women's Initiatives for The Gospel Coalition

What attracts us to God? When asked this question, our answer typically revolves around His love toward us. What offends us about God? Here our answer usually centers on His holiness and how we don't measure up. "Holy"--this feels grand yet intimidating, doesn't it? Awesome yet terrifying. Impressive, yet inaccessible. Pictures of God's holiness have been painted with brush strokes too broad. They capture the grandeur of the house, but leave off the finer details such as the WELCOME mat out front. Jackie paints with a much finer brush. She helps us understand that while God's holiness is connected to His justice and His righteous anger against sin, it is also connected to so much more than that--it is meant to draw us closer. Holiness is attractive and inviting. And Jackie doesn't just tell us, she shows us. She uses a finer brush to paint a more nuanced and beautiful picture of the holiness of God. Every page and paragraph sings about the beauty of what "holy" means--which is rare for books in this genre. My heart is full knowing that this work will find a home in the canon of other great books written about the holiness of God. It is the missing puzzle piece in works on this topic.
