Wiseman Biblical Perfection

This is a 7 chapter work on Sanctification by Wiseman (Holiness). He looks at perfection among biblical expressions, perfection and imperfection, then 2 chapters on perfection as being biblical, perfection obtained, perfection inclusive, perfection involves christlikeness of character. The Wesleyian tradition is that of Methodism. The basic concept here is that there is a usable “method” by which you can become holy. John Wesley promoted this along with the concept that perfection was fully possible on this side of glory. Perfectionism means that we can become sinless before our death. While all would fully agree that the Bible’s teaching is that we should strive to be holy, not all agree on the degree of total perfection (or sinless perfection) before one’s death. Wiseman presents this view.
