We know we need grace. Without it, we would never have come to Jesus Christ. But being a Christian is not just coming to Christ. It is to grow and become like Jesus; it is to seek holiness. But the search for holiness is work; and this is where we move from grace to discipline - and where we often make a big mistake. In In the School of Grace , Jerry Bridges offers a clear and concrete presentation of what the gospel means for the whole of Christian life: from conversion to sanctification . It shows how the grace that enabled us to come to Jesus Christ also enables us to grow in sanctification.

If you have ever wondered what your role and God's role is in Christian growth, then this book will encourage you and make you think. He will invite you to trust in Christ while earnestly seeking holiness.
