Publisher's Summary

As Christians, we believe that all sins are considered equal in God's eyes. Yet while evangelicals continue to decry the Big Ones - such as abortion, adultery, and violence - we often overlook more deceptive sins. It seems we have created a sliding scale where gossip, jealousy, and selfishness comfortably exist within the church. In short, some sins have simply become acceptable.

Acclaimed author Jerry Bridges believes that just as culture has lost the concept of sin, the church faces the same danger. Throughout, Jerry encourages victory over personal sin through the gospel's transforming power. This release is perfect for listeners who long to thoughtfully examine their lives and discover a deeper walk with God.

Overall a good book

Some very good points on areas we commonly accept in the church. Even if you don't have the same convictions, the book encourages thoughtful consideration and sharpening of our relationship with God.

Excelente

Often these ‘respectable sins’ are easily dismissed. The author addresses areas where the self righteous person rarely visits or admits. I know for myself I was personally convicted and I am thankful that someone had the courage to address these areas because so many books are written on the ’big outward’ sins but too few on the ‘respectable ‘ sins. A must read for those of us desiring to please the Lord from the inside out.

A must to listen, more than once if possible

The narrator’s voice is a bit dry, but the subject of the book so good that it kept me fully engaged. I plan to listen again so I can digest each chapter a little more.

convicting

It takes a lot of humility to listen to this author point out places we often overlook. A bit beat up but thankful for the opportunity to take a deeper look at my walk that it may be pleasing to the Lord.

Respectable Sinners exposed

Sin looked at through the eyes of truth when confronted by that which we deem
" respectable"
