I had given my copy of "Transforming Grace" to a friend. I love the book and decided it should be a part of my library; so I purchased another copy. It is a beautifully written discussion of God's sovereignty. It reminds me again and again of God's love and mercy.
Transforming Grace by Jerry Bridges is yet another bestseller for NavPress and truly the best yet for the best-selling author and well-known speaker. Bridges definitely has a gift of choosing difficult themes and transcribing them into understandable books that every pastor, teacher and layperson should read.Transforming Grace will show you the correct way to view grace and how to better understand what the Bible is talking about when teaching about it. Even though we know better, we still manage to make our relationship with God a works-based relationship. We may say we believe otherwise, but our actions prove us wrong. In this book, Bridges shows where we go wrong, how to act properly and why it is so important to accept the grace God offers.It is important to understand that Gods grace is His gift to us no matter what. We cannot earn it and we certainly dont deserve it. It is ours because we are His. We dont have to beg for it. We cant steal it from someone else. And it is not for sale. Only God can give it to you and you cant give it away.There is a Discussion Guide available making this book perfect for small groups and Sunday School classes. We can live confidently in Gods unfailing love and Bridges has outlined the method in his book.

I just started the book and have read only the fridt two chapters, but have found many things in those chapters that I agree with. It is aexcellent book and I would recommend it to anyone. We are using it for a Women's Bible Study.
I have just read this amazing, impacting book for the third time....it reinforces the meaning of grace that goes far beyond the common definition: God's unmerited favor. I have often pondered the verse, "Humble thyself in the sight of the Lord...." and what it really means to live this verse. Well, when I picked up Transforming Grace, I received my answer. To understand all the ramifications of God's magnificent Grace, is to be h-u-m-b-l-e-d. To appropriateGrace, is to remember that I am that worm who's become the dwelling place of the Almighty.
