The Pursuit of Holiness. Trusting God. The Practice of Godliness. The Joy of Fearing God. . . . One look at these book titles gives you a clear indication of what author Jerry Bridges is all about—teaching readers how they can know and understand God in a deep and meaningful way, and how that knowledge can literally transform their lives.
One major avenue for Jerry’s seasoned teaching abilities has been books. He’s written eleven to date including Transforming Grace and The Discipline of Grace, which won a Gold Medallion Book Award from the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association. The Practice of Godliness has been honored as well with sales of more than 400,000 copies (and counting). But it is The Pursuit of Holiness for which Jerry is best known.
