Reviews - What do customers think about Respectable Sins?
Must read books for serious Christians! Oct 31, 2008
I loved this book. Respectable sins are the things that we would be willing to let others see in us: anger, complaining,critical spirit and judgementalism. This was a convicting book, but one that I would recommend to all of my friends! I would also challenge you to ask your true friends what sins they see in you that you do not see yourself. Sin tends to blind us to our own sinfulness, but others can usually see it pretty clearly.

15 copies for a church discussion group. Shipped expediously. Good for discussion and introspection. Easily steps on a few toes.
It's hard enough to see the truth about sin in ourselves even though we are the way we are but as you know,easy to see in others,as this book truthfully points out. The biblcal truth about sin and the sinner compaired to what God wants from us and will bring about in us if we will allow Him to is well explained in this brief look at the way we accept as "OK" the things God wants to work out of our life to make us more acceptable to Him. The work He begain in us when we first believed He will continue here on this earth until we go to be with Him. This book can help to see this truth from the word of God and act upon it and more glorify our God for who He is and what He has done for us.

Jerry Bridges has a way of getting to the point. There is no "fluff" in this book. It is practical, personal and convicting in a very valuable way.
Bridges exposes many of the things that we ignore (and some we even celebrate) as the sin that it is. Great for personal or group reading.
