ENGLISH DESCRIPTION: Whatever happened to sin? Have Christians become so preoccupied with the major sins of society that we have lost sight of our need to deal with our own more subtle sins? Jerry Bridges addresses specific "acceptable" sins that we tend to tolerate in our lives-such as jealousy, anger, pride, unthankfulness, and judgmentalism. Jerry writes not from a height of spiritual accomplishment but from the trenches of his own battles with sin. In his admonitions, Jerry offers a message of hope in the profound mercy of the gospel and the transforming grace of God as the means to overcome our subtle sins. "If we are not humbled into repentance by Bridges' diagnosis of things that are wrong with us, then something is indeed wrong with us, and badly so. Read this book-we need to-and be ready for a gentle surgeon's sharp knife." J. I. Packer, professor of theology, Regent College; author of Knowing God; "Jerry Bridges has blessed us with this timely book designed to help us grow in grace and glorify and enjoy God as we ought. I can't think of any partner with whose help I'd rather tackle my own heart sins than Jerry." Ligion Duncan, adjunct professor, Reformed Theological Seminary; senior minister, First Presbyterian Church, Jackson, Mississippi CHINESE DESCRIPTION: 罪怎麼了?基督徒是否太過糾纏於社會上顯著的罪,忽略了對付我們自身精煉、微妙的罪?畢哲思指出我們在生命中縱容的「可行的罪」,如嫉妒、憤怒、驕傲、不感恩、論斷。畢哲思並非從屬靈成就高峰的角度去寫此書,而是從他自己與罪搏鬥的戰壕中寫的。畢哲思提供了盼望的訊息,勸戒讀者透過福音無比的恩慈、神改造生命的恩典去戰勝微妙的罪。「如果我們不能謙卑地面對畢哲思對罪的剖析,不能悔改,那麼,我們是真有問題,確有問題。我們 『需要』讀此書,預備迎接外科醫生溫柔鋒利的手術刀」巴刻 J. I. Packer, 加拿大維真神學院神學科教授,《認識神》Knowing God 的作者; 「畢哲思以此書祝福我們,此書適切地特別幫助我們在恩典中成長,榮耀、享受上帝,這都是我們應該做的。除了畢哲思之外,我再想不出任何人令我情願與他一起對付我心里的罪。」鄧亙 J. Ligon Duncan, 美國改革宗神學院兼任教授, 美國密西西比州傑克信市, 第一長老會主任牧師
