“Godliness has value for all things.” —1 Timothy 4:8 (NIV)
How can you develop godly character? Bestselling author Jerry Bridges says that godliness is more than a character trait: “It is a foundational spiritual quality that makes the entire Christian life dynamic, effective, and pleasing to God.” Growing in godliness is a twofold process. It involves an ever-deepening devotion to God and developing character that is steadily transformed into His likeness.
In The Practice of Godliness, the sequel to the popular book The Pursuit of Holiness, readers will learn how laying an inward foundation of God-centeredness will permit them to build an outward structure of godliness. Character formation will never be the same! Discussion guide included.
If Your Goal is Conformity to Christ
Jerry Bridges Theology
One of the best books I have ever read on How God will conform you to the image of His Son avoiding the trap legalism: the Pharisee syndrome. I highly recommend it if your goal and desire is to be conformed to the image of Christ.
