“I decided to go through this book with a friend after first reading The Pursuit of Holiness. Bridges uses a lot of scripture in the book and I really like the study guide he provides. This makes for a great book study to do with a friend (or group of people).”

“Theologically sound book, well-researched and pithy and to the point!”

“Jerry Bridges did a wonderful job relating (A LOT!) scripture to make the case for striving to become Holy by living the life that Jesus desires us to live. I’ve went through this book in 2 different Bible studies and could still learn more from the book.”
