Product Description

As Christians, we believe that all sins are considered equal in God's eyes. Yet while evangelicals continue to decry the Big Ones---such as abortion, adultery, and violence---we often overlook more deceptive sins. It seems we've created a sliding scale where gossip, jealousy, and selfishness comfortably exist within the church. In short, some sins have simply become acceptable.

Bridges, bestselling author of The Pursuit of Holiness, believes that just as culture has lost the concept of sin, the church faces the same danger. Jerry writes not from a sense of achievement, but from the trenches of his own personal battles. Drawing from scriptural truth, he sheds light on subtle behaviors that can derail our spiritual growth. Throughout, Jerry encourages a victory over personal sin through the gospel's transforming power, the perfect release for those who desire to thoughtfully examine their lives and discover a deeper walk with God.

Publisher's Description

Have Christians become so preoccupied with “major” sins that we have lost sight of our need to deal with more subtle sins? Navigator author Jerry Bridges addresses the “acceptable” sins that we tend to tolerate in ourselves, including pride and anger. He goes to the heart of the matter, exploring our feelings of shame and grief and opening a new door to God’s forgiveness and grace. Travel down the road of spiritual formation with Jerry and discover your true identity as a loved child of God. A discussion guide is available separately.

    I felt convicted by every sin mentioned in every chapter. Book put aside thought "I wish so and so was reading this, they would get so much out of it" because the book speaks directly to you. I like how the author humbled himself to admit that he is still guilt of these sins.

    As usual, Jerry Bridges calls believers to repentance and holiness. Respectable Sins exposes the "little sins" of our lives, the subtle sins that people do not ordinarily notice. We have an everyday constant battle with sin and we are humbled when those sins we tolerate, are brought to our attention. We must deal with our own subtle sins and at the same time we are reminded that it is the power of the transforming grace of God that gives victory over these sins. This book is not only helpful for the individual but can be used very effectively in a group study.
