Gospel for Real Life: Turn to the Liberating Power of the Cross... Every Day
"Jerry Bridges has the happy knack of hitting the biblical nail right on the headin 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!"See All
