A few years ago I had the privilege a long with a few others friends to have lunch with Jerry Bridges. During our dining time together I asked him of all the books you have written, which is your favorite. His response: "The Gospel for Real Life." Finally, I have a copy in my hands as my 13 year old is about to begin reading and studying this book with a few other young ladies in a study led by our Pastor's daughter. I'm excited for my daughter and I'm excited for myself as I plan to be reading along with her.
The Preface has already got me excited. Jerry Bridges writes:
...preaching the gospel to yourself every day is what this book is about. It is intended to answer three questions:
- What is the gospel we should preach to ourselves?
- Why do we, who are already believers, need to preach it to ourselves?
- How do we do it?
