Product Description:

From Jerry Bridges about what makes The Transforming Power of the Gospel different from his other works: The first distinguishing mark of The Transforming Power of the Gospel is that it begins with a consideration of the infinite holiness of God and the consequent seriousness of sin in the light of that holiness (Chapters 2 and 3). The second mark is the increased emphasis on gratitude for the gospel as the primary motivator for the pursuit of transformation (Chapter 6). Third, the chapter on grace, addresses some common misunderstandings of the nature and application of grace that I have not dealt with before (Chapter 7). Fourth, is the greater emphasis on the work of the Holy Spirit in our transformation (Chapter 8). I have covered this subject before but not to the extent I do in the present book. I am convinced the evangelical church needs a greater emphasis on the role of the Holy Spirit and I have had to address that need.

Publisher's Description

The apostle Paul writes that we are to be transformed, but for many Christians, figuring out how to approach spiritual transformation can be elusive. Jerry Bridges helps us understand that we have available to us the ultimate power source for true spiritual growth: the gospel.

In The Transforming Power of the Gospel, Bridges guides you through a thorough examination of:

  • what the biblical meaning of grace is and how it applies to your life
  • how Jesus' work in His life and death applies to the believer in justification and adoption
  • why basic spiritual disciplines are necessary for spiritual growth
  • what role the Holy Spirit plays in both definitive and progressive sanctification
