What difference does the gospel make? The gospel of Jesus Christ is the door to eternal life, but what difference does it make once we're inside God's kingdom?

"The Christian church benefits each time Jerry Bridges takes up his pen to author a book. The Gospel for Real Life is no exception, as clearly outlines Christ's work on our behalf. The reader is left with a grateful heart and a desire to serve more fully in His kingdom." - R.C. Sproul, president and chairman, Ligonier Ministries
"For salvation, for our day-to-day walk with God, for our eternal life with God, we must learn to rely on the gospel. Jerry Bridges makes a compelling case that the riches we seek are in Jesus Christ crucified and then tells us how to receive those riches by faith. If you're weary in your life with God, this is the refresher course - and the refreshment - that you need." - Chuck Colson, chairman, Prison Fellowship Ministries
