it was amazing
Read in September, 2010

We finished this book that we'd been doing for Sunday school. Bridges breaks down by chapter qualities of godliness (toward God): humility, contentment, thoughtfulness, joy; (toward self): holiness, self-control, faithfulness; (toward others): peace, patience, gentleness, kindness, goodness, love. A quote I must remember: "We must remind ourselves that God has not seen fit to make our minds the depository of the sum total of His teaching." And: "Discontent is questioning the goodness of God." We used the study guide, which included looking up lots of Scripture references. Bridges writes in a very readable way with lots of personal illustrations and profound insights. I understand that when he speaks at the Navigator training program, he's very 'dry' but a favorite of the students because of the wisdom he shares.
