Critic Reviews

"We know we need grace. Without it we'd never come to Christ in the first place. But being a Christian is more than just coming to Christ. It's about growing and becoming more like Jesus. It's about pursing holiness. The pursuit of holiness is hard work, and that's were we turn from grace to discipline. Grace is every bit as important for growing as a Christian as it is for becoming a Christian in the first place. Grace is at the heart of the gospel, and without a clear understanding of the gospel and grace we can easily slip into a performance based lifestyle that bears little resemblance to what the gospel has to offer us. The Discipline Of Grace offers a clear and thorough explanation of the gospel and what it means to the believer, and how the same grace that brings us to faith in Christ also disciplines us in Christ, and how we learn to discipline ourselves in the areas of commitment, convictions, choices, watchfulness, and adversity. The Discipline of Grace is highly recommended reading for anyone struggling to overcome the world in Christ." ( Midwest Book Review)

Encouraging and challenging

This book helps Christians take their faith to the practical level. What is it to be a follower of Christ day by ordinary day? This book helps you answer that question and encourages you with the application of the gospel.

Too Difficult To Navigate

What disappointed you about The Discipline of Grace?

It isn't separated into chapters.

How could the performance have been better?

If it were really separated into 18 chapters.

Any additional comments?

This book has 18 Chapters but the recording is separated into only 6 chapters. And these chapter divisions are sometimes right in the middle of a sentence. How is one supposed to make any sense out of that? Bookmarks? Well what if I'm not able to place a bookmark because I'm listening while not close to my iPad?

Content is great, narrator is poor.

Great book, especially enjoy and benefit from the first 3 chapters. Narrator is monotone and dull. Don't think I'll be able to finish listening.

Wonderful!

If you like a practical book on Christian living that is solidelly based in scripture, and a little heavy on theology and doctrine, then this book is for you! I personally loved this book. It is a wonderful resource for discipleship.

Glad I read this book :)

I have read several books by this author. I'm very thankful he chose to write what God revealed to him through the years! It is VERY helpful to have a multitude of counselors in our journey with Christ! It helps to read books written by those that are running the race and are faithful!!
Can't wait to read the next book!

Jerry Bridges does not disappoint

Once again, Jerry Bridges draws you into life in the Spirit. Precepts were simple and profound, but each brings such clarity to responding to the Spirit in truth or in the flesh. Recommend highly!

Excellent Book.

With this one book, I have identified many of my own self defeating practices and beliefs. So impressed am I with it, that I'm actually taking time to write this review.

Never disappointed

I am never disappointed in any book authored by Jerry Bridges. His books are always insightful. I felt sad hearing he past away this past March. I do know he is enjoying being in the presence of our beautiful Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
