The root of all holiness is

Faithful obedience to God is vital, but it is not all God draws us to. It is not sufficient for our healing, no more than doing the laundry is sufficient for a marriage. And it will not be enough in the long run to carry us through. The persecuted Church is vast today. More Christians are being martyred in our lifetime than in any other time in church history. It is not obedience that is carrying our brothers and sisters -- unwavering, steadfast, eye ablaze -- to their deaths. It is holy, fierce passion. Hearts afire.
For the root of all holiness is Romance.
- John and Stasi Eldredge, Captivating

Yup, its a book for women.
