"To know Christ is to know His benefits'-so said the great reformers of the sixteenth century. Jerry Bridges stands in this same tradition as he brings together the deepest truths of the Christain faith with their practical outcomes in the Christian life. The focus is ever on Jesus Christ, our sole and sufficient Redeemer and Lord. A wonderful primer for every believer!"

For the inquirer and for the initiated, The Gospel for Real Life is a book to be read and read again."

"Jerry Bridges has written a book with phenomenal clarity and preciseness in helping us understand the gospel of the Lord Jesus. This book is needed by all of us.

— Robert M. Norris, pastor, Fourth Presbyterian Church, Bethesda, MD
"Jerry Bridges has the happy knack of hitting the biblical nail right on the head—in a way that makes it stick. Like John Bunyan before him, he sees us raking about in the dirt when there is a crown of gold above our heads. Our problem as Chrstians is simply this: we don't believe and understand the gospel very well. It is that simple. It is that radical. Read The Gospel for Real Life carefully. It will do you good!"
— Sinclair B. Ferguson, minister of St. George's-Tron Church, Glasgow, Scotland
