Shelves: christian, devotional
Does the fact that I purchased at least a dozen copies & gave them away over the course of a year say anything? Or that it has been my most highly recommended book over the year? Hands down, this is a fantastic devotional! However, it is not a substitute for reading the Bible regularly. Each day starts with a verse & then has a two-three paragraph commentary. Each commentary is taken from one of Jerry Bridge's books. Over the year, Bridges has become a dear friend, sometimes wielding the ...more

This was a good devotional in some aspects. But after awhile it became a little monotonous. There were some very good helpful parts but there was also the ocassional section that I didn't agree with. Overall this was good.

Recommends it for: Calvinist Christians
Well, that was definitely a whole year's worth. Sadly, some of the days "offerings" weren't quite on track with reality (I'm looking at you, singular sentence on pg. 25 and other sentences throughout the book)

It's more Calvinist than Armenian or Lutheran - but I liked the statement in the front of the book "We can begin each day with the deeply encouraging realization, I'm accepted by God, not on the basis of my personal performance, but on the basis of the infinitely perfect righteousness of Je

I finally finished this 52-week devotional book by Jerry Bridges. It only took a year and a half. Well, slightly longer than that, even. Oh, well.

Holiness Day by Day is a marvelous devotional book. Each daily reading is an excerpt from one of Jerry's other books. I found each one to be inspiring, and some of them had a great impact on me. I highly recommend this devotion. It is not dated, so it could be started any time of the year. They are simply broken down as Monday through Friday, then one

I really like this devotional. There is a very good balance between making sure we understand our righteousness is because of what Christ has done and moving us to desire holiness in our daily life. This is not a shallow devotional but is one that really makes you think about your life. See my full review at

What I loved about this book is having so many different excerpts from Bridges' many books all in one! I was so blessed each day I opened a page to consider what my life in Christ means. I wish I had another book to continue, but re-reading will be great too.

Too often we fall into the rut of thinking we can live the spiritual life in our own strength or that the blessings in our life are things we have earned. This devotional book helps keep our focus on God.
Excellent devotional that looks at the gospel and holiness throughout the year. The sections are taken from various books that Jerry Bridges has written throughout the years. A lot of useful information and teaching, presented in manageable chunks.

An outstanding daily devotional book focused upon the sanctification and maturation of believers! This book has been such a blessing to me and a staple in my daily devotional time for the past year. A must read!
Dec 20, 2008 Becca rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
I am currently reading this book during my devotions. It is so good! I like it because it reminds me of the gospel on every single page. I need to hear the gospel because I often fall into condemnation over my sin. I highly recommend this book. You will benefit from the wisdom that Mr. Bridges has!
