Respectable Sins (audio)

What ever happened to sin? Have Christians become so preoccupied with the major sins of our society that we have lost sight of our need to deal with our own more subtle sins? Jerry Bridges returns to his trademark theme of holiness and addresses a dozen clusters of specific “acceptable” sins that we tend to tolerate in ourselves, such as jealousy, anger, pride, unthankfulness, and judgmentalism. Jerry writes not from a height of spiritual accomplishments but from the trenches of his own battles with sin. In his admonitions, Jerry offers a message of hope in the profound mercy of the gospel and the transforming grace of God as the means to overcome our subtle sins.

Praise for the Print Edition

No one writes more powerfully today about the need for holiness than Jerry Bridges, who carries on the tradition of Tozer and other great saints through the years. In this book, he focuses us on our own failings. You can’t read this without coming to grips with the log in your own eye before dealing with the speck in your neighbor’s. This book should have a wonderful ministry in the Christian church. I highly recommend it.

—Charles Colson, founder, Prison Fellowship Ministries

For the believer seriously considering the lordship of Christ in his life, Respectable Sins is must reading!

—Joni Eareckson Tada, founder and CEO, Joni and Friends International Disability Center

Respectable Sins is just what we need: an exposé of the little sins that are disappointing to God and get in the way of our spiritual growth.

—Philip Graham Ryken, senior minister, Tenth Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia, PA
