The Pursuit of Holiness based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
This book is excellent for any one who truly seeks to understand holiness. A subject that is treated as taboo or dealt with superficialy in this modern Christian era, God has used Jerry to give clear practical meaning and application on the subject of holiness. A great tool for discipleship training, small groups or home bible study as well as overall christian education.
An excellent, helpful book for those who wish to become more like Christ. Bridges is steeped in Scripture, and its wisdom comes out plainly and accessibly on every page. His emphasis on practical godliness is refreshing. I led our Theology Breakfast folks through this book, and it was life-changing for them. Two items of particular help for us were his chapter on indwelling sin and his emphasis on "obedience, not victory." One particular aspect of the book I appreciated was that his illustrations are appropriate, but they don't drive the bus the way so many modern books use them. Rather, exposition of Scripture does the work, and application drives it home to the reader's life. Extremely well-done. Highly recommended for all Christians who desire to grow in Christ; mandatory reading for pastors, elders, deacons, and biblical counselors.
