The Gospel for Real Life: Turn to the Liberating Power of the Cross . . . Every Day


NavPress 2003

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


The gospel of Jesus Christ is the door to eternal life, but what difference does it make once we're inside God's kingdom? Jerry Bridges says the gospel is the very lifeblood of our walk with God. It is the key to our salvation, for sure, but it is also the power for our daily progress in holiness. The Gospel for Real Life will help you:

  • Experience freedom from the grip of sin and know the joy of pursuing holiness
  • Revel in God's acceptance of you and participate in His grace as a daily reality
  • Expose the subtle acids of legalism in your life and enjoy the liberty of the cross
  • Discover how to "preach the gospel to yourself daily" and so partake of its continuous transforming power
  • Carry the true fullness of the gospel to a desperately needy world around you

This volume also includes a study guide to help you experience every day "the unsearchable riches of Christ" that are available to us in the gospel.

Praise for the Print Edition

The Gospel for Real Life is in reality nothing more than a clear, scriptural unpacking of the gospel—just what it is, all of the benefits it entails, all of the wonderful and various things that Christ accomplished in his work of redemption. It is heavy on the 'gospel' part, and hence, the 'real life' applications cannot but follow naturally. For when I really understand the gospel, there is no area of my life that is not dramatically impacted.

—Nathan Pitchford, Reformed
