Bates, William. The Harmony of the Divine Attributes in the Contrivance and Accomplishment of Man’s Redemption. Harrisonburg, Virginia: Sprinkle Publications, 1985 reprint. A wonderful classic that has been reprinted for modern readers.
Bavinck, Herman. The Doctrine of God. Edinburgh: Banner of Truth, 1977 reprint. One of the best treatments of this vital theme. A bit academic but not beyond reach for the growing lay reader.
Berkhof, Louis. Systematic Theology. Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 1939. The portions of this older work which deal with God, His holiness and our Sanctification (holiness) are extremely clear and helpful.
