Have Christians become so focused on “major” sins that we have lost sight of our need to deal with our own subtle sins?
The Christian journey is a life of practiced godliness, but too often we shamelessly overlook or minimize sins that, while corrosive and destructive to ourselves and those around us, are overshadowed by more flashy, headline-grabbing sins. It might be a tough truth to swallow, but inconspicuous sins like jealousy, anger, judgementalism, selfishness, and pride are just as deadly as the so-called “big” sins widely considered unacceptable.

This classic book from Jerry Bridges offers readers a fresh perspective and helps them understand and commit to a life of holiness by examining patterns of behavior we often accept as normal, rather than as the violations of God’s law and commandments that they really are. He writes not from a height of spiritual accomplishment, but from the trenches of his own battles against the sin in his life.

Now available with a new, contemporary watercolor design that blends with Jerry Bridge’s most popular books, this new edition includes the study guide (formerly available separately), combining that resource into this volume so that you can dig deeper into the Bible truths found in this book either as an individual or in a group setting.

"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.
