  1. Summary Being a Christian is about accepting Christ s righteousness via admission that my own righteousness is inadequate , and living in the power of the Holy Spirit via admission that my own strength is inadequate.A helpful, encouraging short book which applies foundational Christian theology to real life in a very practical way Bridges takes the doctrines of justification and sanctification that is, the righteousness of Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit and attacks the issues of self ri [...]


  2. Good lesson on How to Preach the Gospel to Yourself 1st Bookend The Righteousness of Christ He paid the penalty we should have paid, by enduring the wrath of God we should have endured, by His perfect obedience And it required Him to give up HIS relationship with the Father so that WE could have one FAITH involves my Renunciation of any trust in my own performance as a basis for acceptance by God and a Reliance entirely on the perfect obedience and sin bearing death of Christ for my standing bef [...]


  3. While this book isn t particularly well written or brilliant, it did strike a few deep chords which were particularly helpful to me I needed some reminders.


  4. A superb study of the two Biblical pillars of the Christian life, the righteousness of Christ and the work of the Holy Spirit.


  5. Wow Praise God for men who seek him first and point others in the same direction God used these authors to encourage my faith and convict my heart I m super thankful for the clear presentation and explanation of God s word in these pages.


  6. Back before there was a gospel revelation at Cornerstone Bible Church, there were rumblings of the change to come I read The Disciplines of Grace with my Bible study then called Flock and it began to stir in my heart the beginning of a greater understanding of grace, mercy, and love of God.Since that change in my understanding of the complete work of the gospel began with a Jerry Bridges book, it s only fitting that another should contribute so much to my growing understanding of the magnitude o [...]



  7. There are lots of good books on the essence of the Gospel, explaining the centrality of the cross and the importance of imputed righteousness, and there are lots of good books on spiritual growth, explaining the importance of walking in the Spirit and pursuing spiritual disciplines, but there aren t too many books that do both That s what sets Bookends apart.In typical lucid Jerry Bridges style, it is explained that the two bookends are the righteousness of Christ and the power of the Holy Spiri [...]


  8. A most Excellent book, that lays out a practical view of the Christian life, in a personal sense I don t want to simplify it as a how to guide to sanctification, because it went far beyond that Bridges lays out three enemies of the Gospel Self righteousness, Guilt, and Self reliance The Cure for these rests in leaning on the righteousness of Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit, the two bookends that support our lives We cannot merit salvation, favor, or blessings by our goodness, only by the [...]


  9. Powerful, Succinct PracticalMy Bible Study teacher recommended this book to a friend of mine who was struggling with sin, guilt and depression In wanting to be a supportive friend, I read it too, and boy am I glad I did This is a powerful, succinct and practical manual on how to live a fulfilled and joyful Christian life, useful in service to God, not through our own power and righteousness, but through Christ s alone.Christians of any age and maturity level will find this small book helpful for [...]


  10. Phenomenal This book is for the new believer, the struggling believer, and the established believer It was so encouraging and met me right where I was Jerry unpacks what it means to truly live a life transformed by the Gospel of Christ and the freedom and peace that entails He also discusses at length four enemies of the Gospel that rob us of our joy and rest in Christ This book fueled and propelled me in my walk with God and is one I will read many times in my life


  11. An overview of what Jerry Bridges talks about in other works, notably Pursuit of Holiness and Discipline of Grace both of which I highly recommend Basically, Christians need to preach the gospel to themselves every day, having two bookends as their anchor the righteousness of Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit A down to earth, accessibly written work for even the newest of believers, it challenges readers to really lean all of the books of their lives between those two truths.


  12. This is a book best read as an annual reminder to order my faith perspective according to some over all principles that have guided believers through the centuries, as the Psalmist asks in the 121st from whence comes righteousness and the strength to be so


  13. A very simple word picture bookends that hold up and stabilize this life lived as a follower of Jesus Christ Bookend 1 is the righteousness of Christ Bookend 2 is the power of the Holy Spirit This is a book well worth reading


  14. This is an amazing book I highly recommend it It specifically talks about the righteousness of Christ the power of the Holy Spirit the two bookends.I found this book very helpful and I think you will too.


  15. I m a little ambivalent about this book Some parts of it were quite good and helpful whereas other parts didn t resonate at all I think I found the first half informative and useful than the second half Perhaps I was losing interest as I read


  16. I think there is definitely room for clarification and expansion Seems to reduce everything down to the gospel I hope to have a better review once I ve gathered my thoughts.





  17. I love this book It s an extended meditation in the vital truths that nurture Christian faith and fuel Christian living Wish I could hand out boxes and boxes of them Simple goodness.
