This classic book from Jerry Bridges helps readers understand and commit to a life of holiness by examining patterns of behavior we often accept as normal, rather than as violations of God’s law.

Respectable Sins Excerpt :

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION: Whatever happened to sin? Have Christians become so preoccupied with the major sins of society that we have lost sight of our need to deal with our own more subtle sins? Jerry Bridges addresses specific "acceptable" sins that we tend to tolerate in our lives-such as jealousy, anger, pride, unthankfulness, and judgmentalism. Jerry writes not from a height of spiritual accomplishment but from the trenches of his own battles with sin. In his admonitions, Jerry offers a message of hope in the profound mercy of the gospel and the transforming grace of God as the means to overcome our subtle sins. "If we are not humbled into repentance by Bridges' diagnosis of things that are wrong with us, then something is indeed wrong with us, and badly so. Read this book-we need to-and be ready for a gentle surgeon's sharp knife." J. I. Packer, professor of theology, Regent College; author of Knowing God; "Jerry Bridges has blessed us with this timely book designed to help us grow in grace and glorify and enjoy God as we ought. I can't think of any partner with whose help I'd rather tackle my own heart sins than Jerry." Ligion Duncan, adjunct professor, Reformed Theological Seminary; senior minister, First Presbyterian Church, Jackson, MississippiCHINESE DESCRIPTION: J. I. Packer,, Knowing God; J. Ligon Duncan,,,

In The Pursuit of Holiness, he helps us see clearly just what we should rely on God to do—and what we should take responsibility for ourselves. As you deepen your relationship with God, learn more about His character, and understand the Holy Spirit’s role in holiness, your spiritual growth will mature.

Trusting God Excerpt :

Why is it easier to obey God than to trust Him? Because obeying God makes sense to us. In most cases, His laws appear reasonable and wise, and even when we don’t want to obey them, we usually concede that they are good for us. But the circumstances we find ourselves in often defy explanation. Before long, we begin to doubt God’s concern for us or His control over our lives. We ask, “Why is God allowing this?” or “What have I done wrong?” During such a time of adversity, Jerry Bridges began a thorough Bible study on the topic of God’s sovereignty. What he learned changed his life, and in Trusting God he shares the fruit of that study. As you explore the scope of God’s power over nations, nature, and even the details of your life, you’ll find yourself trusting Him more completely—even when life hurts. This new edition replaces both Trusting God (paperback ISBN 9781600063053) and the study guide (paperback ISBN 9781600063060) by combining both resources into one volume!

The Blessing of Humility Excerpt :

We all admire humility when we see it. But how do we practice it? How does humility--the foundational virtue of the normal Christian life--become a normal part of our everyday lives? Jerry Bridges sees in the Beatitudes a series of blessings from Jesus, a pattern for humility in action. Starting with poverty in spirit--an acknowledgment that in and of ourselves we are incapable of living holy lives pleasing to God--and proceeding through our mourning over personal sin, our hunger and thirst for righteousness, our experience of persecutions large and small, and more, we discover that humility is itself a blessing: At every turn, God is present to us, giving grace to the humble and lifting us up to blessing.

Acceptable Sin Excerpt :

“This issue cannot be approached one-dimensionally—that is, to declare it to be sin but go no further. Homosexuality is sin, and that is a starting point. But the Great Commandment and the Great Commission compel us to do more.” —Mark Abisher, Pastor of MacArthur Park Church of Christ in San Antonio In a world hyper-focused on pointing out the sins of others, William Huckaby makes a simple plea to the church—show mercy to others so mercy will be shown to you. But what about to the homosexual? After all, the Bible is clear that homosexuality is a sin, but how should Christians approach the people who are part of the LGBTQ+ community? What kind of impact is the church having on them? Are we building bridges or walls to the kingdom of God? In The Acceptable Sin, Huckaby makes an undeniable case of how we all fall short of the glory of God. Yet while we who are in the church tend to turn a blind eye to our “acceptable” sins, we fail to respond to the homosexual on the personal and relational level that Jesus would. Our us-versus-them mentality is proving to be detrimental to how the world perceives God’s unconditional love for them—and perception is reality. The attitudes of the church risk not only losing this vulnerable subset of our culture but potentially an entire generation. This book offers Christians a hopeful way forward in the struggle between what the Bible says about the sin of homosexuality and how to treat those who have embraced it. Will God’s law of love win out over the law of death? Will mercy or judgment prevail? Why are some sins overlooked or excused, while homosexuality is treated like Old Testament leprosy? These are the types of questions this book will answer.

Transforming Grace Excerpt :

Living Confidently in God's Unfailing Love Grace is amazing because it is God's provision for when we fall short of His standards. Unfortunately, too many of us embrace grace for our salvation but then leave it behind in our everyday lives. We base our relationship with God on our performance rather than on His love for us, even when we intuitively know that our performance cannot earn us the love we so desperately crave. Isn't it time to stop trying to measure up and begin accepting the transforming power of God's grace? The product of more than ten years of Bible study, Navigator author Jerry Bridges's Transforming Grace is a fountainhead of inspiration and renewal that will show you just how inexhaustible and generous God's grace really is. This edition includes the full study guide, which was formerly available as a separate product (ISBN 9781600063046).
