I recommend this book to every born again Christian, and every person who wants to know more about themselves. I'm really impressed to learn more about myself and others around me good or bad. My Pastor during his sermons would quote something from this book. So I got the book and was really surprised at what I didn't know. Get a copy you won't be disappointed. - Larry -
I felt convicted by every sin mentioned in every chapter. Book put aside thought "I wish so and so was reading this, they would get so much out of it" because the book speaks directly to you. I like how the author humbled himself to admit that he is still guilt of these sins.
As usual, Jerry Bridges calls believers to repentance and holiness. Respectable Sins exposes the "little sins" of our lives, the subtle sins that people do not ordinarily notice. We have an everyday constant battle with sin and we are humbled when those sins we tolerate, are brought to our attention. We must deal with our own subtle sins and at the same time we are reminded that it is the power of the transforming grace of God that gives victory over these sins. This book is not only helpful for the individual but can be used very effectively in a group study.
