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.

Endorsement "Jerry Bridges has long served the church in the area of applying the gospel to personal holiness, using the Word to convict of sin and the gospel to restore hope. This book is a welcome addition to his already powerful list of books." - Tim Challies
