Summary The apostle Paul writes that we are to be transformed, but for many Christians, figuring out how to approach spiritual transformation can be elusive. Best-selling author Jerry Bridges helps us understand that we have available to us the ultimate power source for true spiritual growth: the gospel. In The Transforming Power of the Gospel, Bridges guides you through a thorough examination of: What the biblical meaning of grace is and how it applies to your life; How Jesus' work in His life and death applies to the believer in justification and adoption; Why basic spiritual disciplines are necessary for spiritual growth; What role the Holy Spirit plays in both definitive and progressive sanctification
