Transforming Grace: Living Confidently in God's Unfailing Love, by Jerry Bridges


Really more of a four-and-a-half star book, and definitely Bridges' best so far. This book kicked my behind right proper. Substantively, it's quite similar to Forde's On Being a Theologian of the Cross, albeit a little easier to digest. As someone who struggles with legalism on a pretty much constant basis, I found this book quite challenging. Bridges reminds his readers that grace not only saves us, but also sanctifies us as well. And I for one definitely need the reminder. I still haven't really wrapped my head (or heart) around the concept of grace--not by a long shot--but this book definitely helped that process along. I highly recommend it.
