Funny how the exceeding riches of God's grace seem to run out the moment we're saved. From then on, we tend to base our relationship with Him on our performance rather than on His grace. Of course, God continues to deal with us on the basis of His grace, whether or not we understand it. It's just that when we don't, we forgo the abundant freedoms that come from not having to measure up.
The product of more than ten years of Bible study, Transforming Grace is a fountainhead of inspiration and renewal that will show you just how inexhaustible and generous God's grace really is. You'll never be able to ask for too much, need too much, hope for too much, or even sin too much. Like a never-ending stream of ocean waves crashing on the shore, His grace "superabounds" toward you without a measure.
Praise for the Print Edition
This is an honest, gentle, searching book on a great theme by a wise teacher who knows what he is talking about. I highly recommend it.
—J. I. Packer, Professor of Theology, Regent College
In his latest book, Transforming Grace, Jerry Bridges offers his readers a truly appealing look at this matter of Free Grace. Within its pages, the reader will find an attractive portrait of the God who makes the only bona fide offer of real freedom to anyone who will take it-with no strings attached. This is must reading for all those truly seeking to know the Lord as He wants to be known.
—Barry V. Goodgion, Journal of the Grace Evangelical Society, Volume 05, 1992
In a very readable style, Bridges brings his readers along with him on a journey to a better understanding of God’s grace. . . In an age when man’s goodness is emphasized and self-help books proliferate, this book is soul-refreshing. . . I recommend it for sheer reading pleasure and for growth in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
