Who am i jerry bridges pdf
Who Am I? Identity in Christ by Jerry BridgesI received a paperback of Who Am I? while attending Together for the Gospel and have been sitting on it since. I’m going to start with my only complaint. The mannequin on the cover freaks me out. It reminds of one of those faceless robots from that cheesy Will Smith movie iRobot. Otherwise, I have no substantial critiques.
He starts by discussing our common identity with humanity in creation. Foundationally we are creatures but then he zeros in on the Christians unique identity in Christ as justified, adopted sons of God, new creations, saints, servants of Christ, and not yet perfect.
He also handles deftly the differences between initial sanctification and justification versus progressive sanctification and our effort.
Each of these topics could take over the party but they are clearly and accurately explained. His writing is approachable yet profound (the topics demand it).
Who Am I? should be a book that pastors look at giving all new Christians they minister to. The topics addressed are so foundational to Christian living and our understanding of salvation. The format lends itself to discussion and discipleship. Each chapter handles one of these topics carefully and accurately. They each build on each other and the entire book exudes a sense of hope and longing for the finality of our salvation.
