Respectable Sinsby Jerry Bridges
Synopses & Reviews
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 accomplishment 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 overcoming our subtle sins.

Why do we tolerate jealousy, anger, and pride in ourselves? Jerry Bridges explains how we have hope in the mercy of the gospel and God's transforming grace as the means to overcome subtle sins.
