This book is about sin—not the obvious sins of our culture but the subtle sins of believers. Jerry Bridges returns to his trademark theme of holiness and addresses specific “acceptable” sins that we tend to tolerate in ourselves—such as jealousy, anger, pride, unthankfulness, and judgementalism. In his admonitions Jerry offers a message of hope in the profound mercy of the gospel and the transforming grace of God as the means to overcome our subtle sins.
