The Discipline of Grace: God's Role and Our Role in the Pursuit of HolinessThis is a fine book for differentiating exactly what the subtitle suggests, that is, God’s role and my role in pursuing holiness. Is it just “let go and let God”?  If not, how much is my responsibility? Bridges does an outstanding job of showing how it is all God – and yet, the responsibility to take initiative and practice the disciplines of Godly living is mine – never out of a sense of somehow ingratiating myself to God, but out of a love for God who has already ingratiated Himself to me and me to Him. Bridges strikes a wonderful, biblical balance on this often hard-to-grasp concept.
