The Practice of Godliness is a wonderful book for any believer to read; and re-read. However, when used hand-in-hand with the Discussion Guide, it makes this book even better. If that is possible!
A lot of books these days come with discussion guides built in or on the side, but this duo takes a different twist on the use of such a guide. This is designed to do the discussion guide first and then read the book. While this seems backward at first, it actually aids in the learning. You study the scriptures first, then read the author's teaching, then follow up with questions to discuss, or simply think about if you are doing the study alone. This approach grounds the study more in God's Word than any other I have read.
The study as a whole - with or without the use of the Discussion Guide - is wonderful. It addresses deep theology and biblical truth in a very down-to-earth manner that is easy to understand while challenge our spiritual growth. The Practice of Godliness also takes it from mere thought to application as you study 12 character traits of godliness through out this book.
This is a a great study for Sr. High teens to adults. It is easy to use as an individual and set up to make a great group study as well.
Scripture tells us that God has given us "everything we need for life and godliness." But what makes a Christian godly? In this book, Navigator author Jerry Bridges examines what it means to grow in Christian character. Learn more about the character of God as you grow a deeper relationship with Him. Establish the foundation upon which godly character is built and continue by developing maturity and pursuing holiness.
Jerry Bridges is an author and conference speaker. His most popular book, The Pursuit of Holiness, has sold over one million copies. Jerry has been on the staff of The Navigators for over fifty years and currently serves in the collegiate mission department, where he is involved primarily in staff development but also serves as a speaker resource to the campus ministries.
