The Discipline of Grace - Jerry Bridges

God's role and our role in the pursuit of holiness. This book takes the author's previous book, The Pursuit of Holiness, and digs deeper into the subject of God's grace. It is a Bible based explanation of God's grace in our lives and our response to it. The author includes quotes from John Owen, Jonathan Edwards, and John Calvin among others. Citing Biblical references, the author explains in plain language, our role and God's role in the growth of a Christian. The back cover sums up the subject of the book this way: "Your worst days are never so bad that you are beyond the each of God's grace. And your best days are never so good that you are beyond the need of God's grace."
There are so many good points in this book, I found myself reading slower than usual to not miss anything. It is good to find a book with a lot of "meat" instead of just fluff. It is a well researched, well written book, exactly what I have come to expect from Navpress.
I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a deeper, scripture based understanding of God's grace.
This book is published by Navpress, the publishing ministry of the Navigators.
