Overview

The freedom in falling short of God’s standard relies on His gift of grace. Unfortunately, too many of us forget the free offer. We spend our lives basing our relationship with God on our performance rather than on Him. We see our identity as never being worthy of His love.

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 10 years of Bible study, Navigator author Jerry Bridges’ Transforming Grace is a fountainhead of inspiration and renewal that will show you just how inexhaustible and generous God’s grace really is. A discussion guide is available separately (ISBN 9781600063046).

What People are Saying About This

Chuck Colson
Indeed, another inspired and powerful work by Jerry Bridges. Jerry brings us face-to-face with a reality we tend to forget: our own constant need for God’s grace.
R. C. Sproul
In typical Bridges style, this book is a warm, encouraging, and insightful guide to godly living. It gets to the core of the biblical meaning of grace.

So many books start AFTER this point--they assume you've realized God's Love for you is real and beautiful. For people who've never experienced that kind of love before, or doubt God can love them when He knows all about them, this is the book to start with. I found myself reading and rereading sections, unable to believe God could love ME!

Jerry Bridges Pursuit of Holiness, Transforming Grace and Practice of Godliness, are the best, most challenging, thought provoking books I read. It makes you think and evaluate your Christian walk: are we doers of the word or just hearers. Great to read all three books

Jerry Bridges is an author whose work I very much enjoy reading. He has a remarkable talent to choose a particular subject, delving in it and presenting in such a way anyone can relate to! The more I read on and the more I found it to be true: God's Grace is so simple! Jerry Bridges shows us the true side of God's Grace and reminds us our Saviour paid the price of our admission into eternal life. He skilfully tells us to stop trying to buy our way in, instead showing us how to give out of love, not as a way to earn merits. Each chapter gives us a remarkable insight into life as we see it and allows us to use God's Transforming Grace to live confidently in His wonderful love. Ten years in the making, this book comes with an amazing study guide of eight sessions that will bring even more understanding of God's love for His people, a perfect tool for personal reference or discussion in a small group. I give this book a 5 stars. It belongs on any Christian library! Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from NavPress Publishers as part of their Blogger Review program.

As a person raised in the fear and admonition of the Lord, the Lord, through this book, has done more to enlighten my eyes to His wonder. I know rest in the knowledge of Him who is able to keep me from stumbling and to present me blameless before the presence of His glory with great joy (Jude 1:24).

Gives a great understanding to not feel the need to earn God's grace and mercy.

We are naturally evil. It has been passed onto us since adam ate of the forbidden fruit. No can avoid sinning. To say you have not sinned is a lie. You sin when you lie don't you? Or have i been raised wrong?

This has to be one of the best books I have read this year. I read Pursuit of Godliness and I loved that book, but this book was fantastic. I have been reading "A Praying Life" by Paul Miller and to read both of these books alongside each other has been both encouraging and convicting. I know this is about Transforming Grace, but I need to say one thing about "A Praying Life." Paul Miller shows how our prayer life parallels our walk with Christ. When we pray our prayers show our dependence on Christ and when we don't pray it's because we are taking matters into our own hands. In the same way when we pray we are showing our dependence on God's grace and when we don't pray we are showing our dependence on our works. In reading this book I have been convicted by how much I really am relying on my works for my sanctification (the process of becoming holy) and not Christ. This book has shown me how skewed my view of grace is and what true grace is all about. One of my favorite quotes from the book is "God answered my prayer for only one reason: Jesus Christ had already purchased that answer to prayer two thousand years ago on a Roman cross. God answered on the basis of His grace alone, not because of my merits or demerits."

This book has a great message about the existence of grace that's really inspiring, but it's a smack in the face for any optimist. It continually asserts that humans are inherently 'evil.' We may all be in need of God's grace, but we are definitely not evil by nature. Also, the repeated reminder that grace is our only salvation and that all the 'good works' we do won't earn God's favor gives no encouragement for us to live an altruistic life-- because none of what we do matters. Go ahead and live out a fully selfish, hedonistic life, it doesn't matter because you're bad anyway!
