Reviews - What do customers think about The Practice of Godliness (Study Guide)?
Better than expected - Highly recommended Jan 9, 2007
I purchased this study guide for our young couples Bible study at my church. I was apprehensive because a lot of study guides don't have good discussion questions. I was pleasantly surprised. The study guide has excellent questions for personal growth and also for group discussion. It also ties in very nicely with the corresponding book.
This is the best study guide I have ever used.
One of the best tools around! Nov 24, 2000
I don't often give five stars, but Jerry Bridges deserves each one. His writing is simple, straightforward, biblical, and practical. I have been using "The Practice of Godliness" in my mentoring ministry for years. One thing I appreciate about this book is that it really is a Bible study. He uses his writing to illustrate, but the focus is digging into God's word. Whether you are studying by yourself or working with someone else, this is an excellent book!
