Discover Your Holy Calling.

The Bible exhorts us to pursue a life of holiness. But what does that look like in everyday life? We struggle with our sinful nature within and with a morally polluted world around us. How do we live holy lives?

In this companion study guide to The Pursuit of Holiness, you can discover the Bible's guidelines for holy living. This guide includes 12 lessons in which you will carefully look at many of the same Scripture passages Jerry Bridges studied to glean the principles he presents in The Pursuit of Holiness.

Download Description
Still running strong. Twenty-five years ago, The Pursuit of Holiness posed the question: What does holiness look like? For starters, it doesn't look anything like perfection. And it doesn't necessarily look like victory. Mostly, it consists of effort, prayer, grace, and obedience. "Scripture speaks of both a holiness we have in Christ before God, and a holiness we are to strive after," writes the author. In other words, we can ignore neither Christ's role nor our own if we are to successfully pursue holiness. It is as simple as refusing to smudge the truth on a tax return or as complicated as forgiving the person who has most viciously hurt us. Jerry takes holiness out of the realm of the impossible and brings it into "the real world" of our daily lives and decisions.

legalism to tha max  Apr 15, 2007
justifaction, santification and holiness, are all linked to one thing the finished work of christ. guys like this say we are justified by faith but were are pertty much on are own when it comes to living the life of a christian.1 the 5;23 eph 5;25 and many othe rscriptures state that we are present tense justified, santified and glotified. by any effort of our own. o foolish jerry who has bewiched you. you stated in the spirit are you made perfect by the flesh.surrendering of the will not will power is the key to the christians walk. only god is holy. how do we become holy, the same way the temple became holy Gods Spirit resided there, "whos temple you are." he says he tried the let go and let god method of holiness and failed, so it was false. he then says try his method but do not be discouraged by constant failures and setbacks. read hebrews 4 and do not try to do it but trust god and apprehend it for yourself. by faith and faith alone. brother stop laying burdends on others you yourself can not bear. '
Insightful, practical, scriptural, and vital.  Mar 4, 2007
The Word of G-d plainly teaches us, in verse and example, that "without holiness, no man shall see G-d."

Jerry Bridges' examination of this foundational doctrine is both cogent and compelling. He has drawn extensively upon some of the finest writings on the subject; e.g. D.Martyn-Lloyd Jones, and Bishop JC Ryle, among others. We are given a practical and edifying guide to empower, encourage, and exhort us to pursue holiness, for holiness is the very essence of who G-d in Christ is.

This book is not an easy, quick read despite the fact that it is under 200 pages. There is much to pray about, to meditate on, and to consider if holiness is to be the characterization of our lives, and not merely head-knowledge. This book's strong point is that the author uses so much scripture to buttress his central thesis that one does not first have to get holy in order to be saved, but that holiness is a part of salvation and we are to expect the fruits of this in our lives.

Read and weep tears of repentance. One of the mnost important, yet underrated books of our time.
Holiness simply explained  Feb 23, 2007
I would highly recommend people to read this book. Especially in today's fast paced world, where sin practically comes to our doorsteps on a daily basis, we all need to learn how to best combat our deformed nature. The most beneficial section of The Pursuit of Holiness is by far chapters 5 - 7; in fact these chapters are an excellent companion to Romans 6 - 8.

In chapter five, Bridges rightly comments: "In a similar manner, Christians tend to sin out of habit. It is our habit to look for ourselves instead of others, to retaliate when injured in some way, and to indulge the appetites of our bodies. It is our habit to live for ourselves and not for God. When we become Christians, we do not drop all of this overnight. In fact, we will spend the rest of our lives putting off these habits and putting on habits of holiness" (p 51). In this chapter he really focuses in on the fact that as Christians when we sin it is because we choose to.

Chapter six I must state is the best chapter out of the entire book; the chapter centers on Romans 7:21, "I find then a law, that evil is present with me, the one who wills to do good." Three fantastic points are brought out:

1. The seat of indwelling sin is the heart (pp 54-56).
2. Indwelling sin works largely through our desires (pp 56-57).
3. It tends to deceive our understanding or reasoning (pp 57-58).

Bridges explains that our evil desires are always looking to satisfy our lusts, which when engaged in a battle against sin our evil desires lead us to amuse ourselves with said sin. Our deformed nature tends to lead us into a misplaced confidence in our own will (i.e. pride). Therefore our desires must continuously be directed toward God. Last, he correctly warns "We abuse grace when, after sinning, we dwell on the compassion and mercy of God to the exclusion of His holiness and hatred of sin" (p 58).

Then in chapter seven, the consistent intake of scripture with the refocused fact that we are filled with the Holy Spirit and therefore dead to sin closes off a true gem of a study.

The remainder of the book focuses on solidifying holiness in our lives and the responsibility a Christian has to live a proper life of holiness. In closing, I once again recommend reading The Pursuit of Holiness; for Jerry Bridges covers this wonderful aspect of God in a way that is accessible to all Christians at all stages of growth.
Walking Out Our Impute Righteousness In the Natural  Jan 31, 2007
This was a wonderful book and I highly recommend it. I have, in my life, struggled with some very serious besetting sins and this book is right on point for anyone in the same boat. It talks about the righteosness which is already ours from Christ, but focuses very heavily on the part that we have to do - the choices we must make that God won't make for us to walk in obedience. More than anything, I think this book helped me to realize that I am delivered from the kingdom of darkness and I do have a choice not to sin. Many Christians are free, but still have a slave mentality. Wonderful book. I highly recomend it.
Just what the doctor ordered!  Nov 10, 2006
Truly, this book is a classic! Jerry Bridges details thoughtfully the need for holiness, what holiness is, and most importantly, *our* role in the pursuit of holiness.
