Bookends of the Christian Life
Bridges, Jerry; Bevington, Bob
"Martin Luther said, 'Man in his search for truth is like a drunken peasant. You help him up on one side of his horse and he falls over the other side.' This book, perhaps more than any other, is designed to keep you on the horse living in the truth of the gospel. There are few books you will find more valuable on your shelf."See All

"Thinking you understand the gospel but applying it only to salva- tion is like barely releasing your sail and slogging through the waves. Bookends will equip you to release that sail, catch the mighty wind of God, and see every 'book' in your life transformed."See All
author, Falling in Love with Jesus
"Jerry Bridges and Bob Bevington look at the Christian life through a wide-angle lens, examining the framework that supports, stabilizes and secures the believer's life in Christ. They teach elements of a dis- tinctly biblical worldview, leaning upon the righteousness of Christ on one hand and upon the power of the Holy Spirit on the other. A wise and powerful book, one I heartily recommend."See All
author, The Discipline of Spiritual Discernment
"Forgiveness of sin and power to change -- I can think of no more essential topics for a Christian to study than these twin blessings of the gospel. And I can think of no one better to write on these topics "than Jerry Bridges. Jerry has provided for me over the years a constant diet of gospel-saturated writing, and here is a fresh feast. I trust you will enjoy it as much as I have."See All
