In The Witness of Your Wardrobe, Dr. and Mrs. John Bishop take on a subject that is very emotional for many Christians, and they do so with grace and Christian love. While showing that the outward apparel of a Christian is, indeed, a very important matter, they show scripturally that God’s first concern is the way the inner man is “clothed.” They are not laying down rules, but are showing Bible principles that will build a closer relationship with God. That relationship will affect in a positive way all areas of life, including clothes a Christian chooses to wear.
The topic of clothing has been the subject of much comment from people of various backgrounds for a number of years. The Bishops present research showing the comments of several ladies, both Christian and secular, that reveal the importance of our clothing in sending a message to those with whom we come in contact. Added to this are the comments of several great preachers and Christian commentators of past years. They also deal with the inconsistency of some modern preachers who have compromised in this area.
The concepts of separation, modesty and purity have rapidly decayed in recent decades, and Dr. and Mrs. Bishop reveal historical events and influences that have played a large part in bringing about this decay. We are challenged to be salt and light in the world and resist the world’s pull to compromise our testimony for our Savior.
