Jerry Bridges's Respectable Sins reminds us that anger, fear, and gossip are just as displeasing to God as homosexuality, adultery, and murder. An excellent companion to The Pursuit of Holiness, Respectable Sins is about personal repentance, change, and renewed virtue.
This isn't a book to skim and toss aside. But in an age when careful reading is seldom taught and practiced even less, a companion volume like Stephen Sorenson's Respectable Sins Discussion Guide can help readers pace themselves to absorb Bridges's wisdom.
Sorenson's guide can be used by groups or individuals, with eight sessions revolving around personal reflection and group discussion questions. Most questions require genuine reflection, so group members will want a copy to work through on their own.
Respectable Sins is particularly suited to help end sinful behavior and embrace Christ's righteousness, and this Discussion Guide is an excellent resource for getting the most out of a crucial text.

C. Hollis Crossman used to be a child. Now he's a husband and father who loves church, good food, and weird stuff. He might be a mythical creature, but he's definitely not a centaur. Read more of his reviews here
