I LOVED Jerry Bridges' book Respectable Sins. The workbook (written by someone else) was severely lacking, however. It didn't cover some key points in the book - like chapter 6's Directions for Dealing with Sin - which I thought was the most important chapter in the whole book because it showed us how to apply what we were learning. It just skipped right over the directions after Jerry spent a whole chapter emphasizing them. The workbook doesn't even included the final chapter on Worldliness or ...more
The study guide isn't as good as the book it is based upon. That being said, it did help focus our group discussions. My biggest issue with the study guide is that it "jumped around" and did not follow the chapter order of the book. So, you could be reading in the book and it would refer to a prior chapter, but in the study guide, we hadn't gotten to that chapter yet because the author of the study guide had skipped over it to cover in a later chapter.

I found myself challenged by the discussion guide (as much as one can be with one-sided questions). The glimpses the guide gives of the actual book left me wishing that my local library had a copy in the collection. It looks like a good read.

We, my wonderful Care Group in my wonderful church family are currently reading this along with Respectable Sins. I am looking forward to learn a lot more in this.
The book itself had depth and had good encouragement to take another look at our "good" Christian lives. This discussion guide did not add that much.
Haven't really filled the study guide out yet. Pretty time-consuming in conjunction with reading the chapters, but I'll get to it.
Book is better than the study guide. I thought the questions belabored the otherwise good points.
