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.
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.

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.
