Living Confidently in God’s Unfailing Love
You’ll never be able to ask for too much, need too much, hope for too much. This Bible study shows how God’s grace will transform you.
The freedom in falling short of God’s standard relies on His gift of grace. Unfortunately, too many of us forget the free offer. We spend our lives basing our relationship with God on our performance rather than on Him. We see our identity as never being worthy of His love.
Isn’t it time to stop trying to measure up and begin accepting the transforming power of God’s grace? The product of more than 10 years of Bible study, Navigator author Jerry Bridges’ Transforming Grace is a fountainhead of inspiration and renewal that will show you just how inexhaustible and generous God’s grace really is.

About the Author
The Pursuit of Holiness. Trusting God. The Practice of Godliness. The Joy of Fearing God. . . . One look at these book titles gives you a clear indication of what author Jerry Bridges is all about—teaching readers how they can know and understand God in a deep and meaningful way, and how that knowledge can literally transform their lives.
Jerry’s own life changed while serving as an officer in the United States Navy. It was during his military career that he first came into contact with The Navigators, an organization committed to this holy mission: “to reach, disciple, and equip people to know Christ and make Him known through successive generations.” Jerry soon felt God’s call to work for The Navigators ministry, and, in time, he became the vice president of its corporate affairs, applying his University of Oklahoma education. His relationship with The Navigators began in 1955, and it’s still going strong. Today, Jerry is a staff member with The Navigators Community Ministries Group, where he is engaged primarily in a Bible teaching ministry.
Extensive Writing Ministry
One major avenue for Jerry’s seasoned teaching abilities has been books. He’s written six to date: the four above, Transforming Grace, and The Discipline of Grace, which won a Gold Medallion Book Award from the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association. The Practice of Godliness has been honored as well with sales of more than 400,000 copies (and counting). But it is The Pursuit of Holiness for which Jerry is best known.
Selling over a million copies, The Pursuit of Holiness explains clearly how God has equipped us to lead holy lives, how reason and emotion influence our will, and how habits and personal discipline play a part in holy living. One satisfied reader, whose opinion is shared by many more, reviews the book on amazon.com and says that Pursuit “is one of the greatest motivating books I have ever read. Jerry Bridges, through illumination from God, reveals what holiness is . . . and what that means to a Christian life.”
What Jerry Bridges means to his audience is evident—he’s a trusted, reliable source of spiritual wisdom that always leads them to the source of all things right and true: God.
Born in Texas, Jerry now lives in Colorado Springs, Colorado, with his wife, Jane.
