The product of more than ten years of Bible study, Transforming Grace is a fountainhead of inspiration and renewal that will show you just how inexhaustible and generous God’s grace really is. You’ll never be able to ask for too much, need too much, hope for too much, or even sin too much. Like a never-ending stream of ocean waves crashing on the shore, His grace “superabounds” toward you without measure.

After reading that, I decided to buy this discussion guide to use for my personal bible study. I really immersed myself in the Bible readings and seriously reflected on the questions because I was SO TIRED of the performance treadmill.
This book has COMPLETELY CHANGED my perspective on what it means to live by grace. Bridges patiently and painstakingly lays it all out in the companion book "Transforming Grace" and this discussion guide enables us to participate in the discussion, to really think about why we hold on to the ideas we hold on to. It compels us to study this wondrous tapestry of God's grace. We are not only saved by it, but we live by it. I came face to face with the love of God, I came to know Him in a deeper way. I no longer view Him as a God with a clipboard, checking off a list of things I am doing or not doing. But I view Him as as a magnanimous, loving, wondrous, holy, and enchanting God!
Realizing all this has changed my heart. I actually desire to obey the Lord! I obey not out of legalism anymore (although I still DO fall into this trap sometimes), but because I have come to know Him as a God of grace. I praise and thank God for using Jerry Bridges to enlighten my darkened mind. For illuminating the beauty of the gospel. PLEASE BUY THIS BOOK if you feel burdened in your Christian walk and your motivation for living for the Lord is coming from all the wrong places!
Truly this is one of the best books I have read addressing the topic of God’s grace. Bridges doesn’t range far and wide, but sticks to this one topic: when we truly begin to understand God’s grace, it will absolutely transform our lives.
Early in the book Bridges states the problematic paradigm many of us have about God’s grace—
“My observation of Christendom is that most of us tend to base our personal relationship with God on our performance instead of on His grace. If we’ve performed well—whatever ‘well’ is in our opinion—then we expect God to bless us. If we haven’t done so well, our expectations are reduced accordingly. In this sense, we live by works rather than by grace. We are saved by grace, but we are living by the ‘sweat’ of our own performance.”
This book is jam-packed with so many paradigm-shifting thoughts, and is well grounded in the Scripture. Bridges transparently shares his own personal struggles with coming to grips with the true nature of God’s grace, and shares the quotes of many notable theologians as well. I loved this book!
If you want to live with a deeper understanding of how God’s grace can transform your life, I couldn’t recommend this book any more highly ... this is a must read!
