In The Practice of Godliness, Jerry Bridges examines what it means to grow in Christian character and helps us establish the foundation upon which that character is built. Bridges opens our eyes to see how character formation affects the way we relate to God, to ourselves, and to others.
Jerry Bridges (1929–2016) was an evangelical Christian author and speaker. He serves in the Collegiate Mission, and has been on the staff of The Navigators for more than fifty years. Bridges earned an engineering degree from the University of Oklahoma and went on to serve as an officer in the United States Navy during the Korean War before joining the staff of the Navigators.
He is the author of more than a dozen books, including The Pursuit of Holiness, which has sold more than one million copies. His devotional Holiness Day By Day garnered the 2009 ECPA Christian Book Award for the inspiration and gift category, and The Discipline Of Grace received a similar award in 1995 for the Christian living category.
