The Practice of Godliness

Jerry Bridges

Navpress
Available from Amazon for £6.34!

Often the best Christian books are the ones which are easy to understand but hard to put into practice. It can definately be said of this book. If you’ve read Bridges’ “Pursuit of Holiness”, this is the “how to” sequel to that best-seller and is full of practical advice on living a godly life and growing in Christian character. According to the author “This book should be more studied than read” and having read through it I understand what he means. It has been firmly placed on my “Books to read again” list and I intend to not merely read through it again but study it as Bridges suggests. I would recommend this book to all Christians and I think it would be especially helpful to read it with someone else so that you can discuss how to apply it in your life and encourage each other as you work through the practical message which Bridges brings.

“For while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come.” 1 Timothy 4:8
