Publisher's Description

What Kind of Relationship Can You Have with Someone You Fear?

For most of us, fear is something we try to avoid. And fearing God hardly sounds like an occasion for joy. But Jerry Bridges shows how the fear of the Lord is actually the key that opens the door to a life of true knowledge, wisdom, blessing, and joy.

We all want a deeper, more intimate relationship with God–one that’s characterized by joy. But how does fearing God lead to joy? After all, aren’t we supposed to love Him and live in intimate relationship with Him? Jerry Bridges explores this paradox as he unpacks the biblical promise that God delights in those who fear Him. Join him as he unveils the awesome greatness of God–His incredible holiness, deep wisdom, and especially His inspiring love. You’ll gain a deeper understanding of who God is that will draw you into a truly biblical, and surprisingly delightful, fear of God–a fear that includes your own genuine, heartfelt delight in God.

You’ll make the startling discovery that the fear of the Lord, far from being something to avoid, is the key to joyful, fulfilling, and genuine intimacy with God. It can change your relationship with God and change your life! Discover the surprising Joy of Fearing God!

    MOST excellent! Thought provoking..scholarly...awesome....The study guide in the back is very challenging. I will read this over and over again. You will grow closer and closer to God with every turn of the page. Bridges immerses you in biblical truth that will change you view of God...new Christian or mature Christian, you will be effected..I plan to use this edition for my family daily Prayer and Bible Study. Highly recommended. Fear==[1] to cause to Tremble, [2]reverence, awe....I worship an awesome God!

    I recommend anything that Jerry Bridges writes, but I believe that The Joy of Fearing God is one of his best. We gave copies of it to our young people who have graduated from college this past year. This subject is one which is greatly needed by every child of God.
