The Bookends of the Christian Life

by Jerry Bridges

Endorsements

“Through his many books, Jerry Bridges has been shepherding my soul since I first became a Christian sixteen years ago. He has done it again. As I have come to expect, he has provided a sea of theological matter in a drop of devotional language. Here you will find God-centered doctrine that is delectably deep and down to earth at the same time. I promise that if you read this book carefully and prayerfully, you will gain both an informed mind and an enlarged heart.”

– Tullian Tchividjian, Pastor, New City Church, Fort Lauderdale, Florida; author, Unfashionable: Making a Difference in this World by Being Different

“Jerry Bridges and Bob Bevington have provided another marvelous instrument for guiding believers to the provisions of a gospel-blessed and gospel-driven life. In this volume the surpassing righteousness of Christ joined with the power of the Holy Spirit is clearly displayed from God’s Word. Thanks from all of us who desire to make disciples that will follow Christ purposefully and passionately.”

– Harry L. Reeder III, Senior Pastor, Briarwood Presbyterian Church, Birmingham, Alabama

“Forgiveness of sin and power to change — I can think of no more essential topics for a Christian to study than these twin blessings of the gospel. And I can think of no one better to write on these topics ” than Jerry Bridges. Jerry has provided for me over the years a constant diet of gospel-saturated writing, and here is a fresh feast. I trust you will enjoy it as much as I have.”

– C. J. Mahaney, Sovereign Grace Ministries

“Jerry Bridges and Bob Bevington look at the Christian life through a wide-angle lens, examining the framework that supports, stabilizes and secures the believer’s life in Christ. They teach elements of a dis- tinctly biblical worldview, leaning upon the righteousness of Christ on one hand and upon the power of the Holy Spirit on the other. A wise and powerful book, one I heartily recommend.”

– Tim Challies, author, The Discipline of Spiritual Discernment

“Thinking you understand the gospel but applying it only to salva- tion is like barely releasing your sail and slogging through the waves. Bookends will equip you to release that sail, catch the mighty wind of God, and see every ‘book’ in your life transformed.”

– Dee Brestin, author, Falling in Love with Jesus

“With their latest publication, the authors display how sound theology is transformational and how understanding enhances true piety and produces profound worship.”

– Robert M. Norris, Pastor, Fourth Presbyterian Church, Bethesda, Maryland

“Martin Luther said, ‘Man in his search for truth is like a drunken peasant. You help him up on one side of his horse and he falls over the other side.’ This book, perhaps more than any other, is designed to keep you on the horse living in the truth of the gospel. There are few books you will find more valuable on your shelf.”

– Joe Coffey, Lead Pastor, Hudson Community Chapel, Hudson, Ohio
