Now available in softcover with a new, contemporary watercolor design that blends with Jerry Bridge’s most popular books. This new edition now includes the study guide (formerly available separately), combining that resource into this book. What Ever Happened to Sin? Jerry Bridges helps us confront the sins we tolerate. The Christian journey is a life of practiced godliness, but too often we overlook or minimize sins that, while corrosive and destructive to ourselves and those around us, are overshadowed by more flashy, headline-grabbing sins. 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.

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,,,

This new edition replaces both The Pursuit of Holiness and the separate study guide by combining both resources into one volume! “Be holy, for I am holy,” commands God. But holiness is something that is often missed in the Christian’s daily life. According to Navigator author Jerry Bridges, that’s because we’re not exactly sure what our part in holiness is. 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. The included study guide contains 12 lessons.

The Blessing of Humility

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.
