In his book, How to be Holy First Steps to Becoming a Saint, Peter Kreeft admits he is a beginner in looking at this topic so the book is written for novices like him. And he writes about this difficult subject in language that is easy for anyone to understand through looking at the insights and experiences of saints and great spiritual leaders to show what holiness is and how it can be achieved. Kreeft bases much of his discussion on the ideas in the book Abandonment to Divine Providence by Jean-Pierre de Caussade, S.J. where de Caussade says "God reveals himself to all of us through the daily events of our lives. The surest way to spiritual growth is by perceiving and accepting the merciful will of God".

Kreeft expresses the simplicity of his approach through the virtue of love. He says "The sanctity of love is the only thing that can give us what we all long for..deep and lasting joy.", He puts forth the idea that "striving toward holiness and moving toward perfect love is the whole purpose of life". How to be Holy is an open an honest look at how life should be lived if we are hoping to become the best and most holy person we can be.
