9781854244536: The Joy of Fearing God

How can fear lead to joy?

Isn't the fear of the Lord kind of old-fashioned? After all, Christians are supposed to love God and live in intimate relationship with Him. What kind of relationship can you have with someone you fear? A great one asserts Jerry Bridges, as he unpacks the biblical promise that God delights in those who fear Him.

In The Joy of Fearing God, trusted author, Jerry Bridges gives you a surprising and revealing look at what the Bible says about why Christians should fear God. As he examines the awesome greatness of God--His incredible holiness, deep wisdom, and inspiring love--Bridges provides a deeper understanding of who God is and what it means to have a biblical fear of God.

You'll make the startling discovery that the fear of the Lord--far from being something to avoid--is the key to joyful, fulfilling, and genuine intimacy with God. It's something that can change your relationship with God--and your life! Discover the surprising joy of fearing God!

Review:

“The Joy of Fearing God, like its author, is a timeless classic. Years ago I led a group study of this unique book, and we all found it deeply refreshing and rewarding in our walks with Christ. I have the highest regard for Jerry Bridges, and I’m delighted to see one of his greatest books available for a new generation of readers!”
Randy Alcorn, author of Heaven and Happiness

“Reading Jerry Bridges is like eavesdropping on an angel enraptured by adoration. He understands the fear of God as an awe-filled reverence before the divine majesty. This book will expand the mind and loose the soul to soar on high.”
R. C. Sproul

“Only the fear of God has the power to disarm any other fear that would capture our hearts and control our lives. I am thankful that Jerry Bridges has written a book that defines and practically explains what the fear of God is all about and the beautiful effects it will have on our lives.”
Paul David Tripp, pastor, author, and conference speaker

“Jerry Bridges has deeply plumbed and warmly written about the gospel for decades. This work, The Joy of Fearing God, is no different. The fear of God he writes of in his classic work is one of intense, joyous, intimate relationship with a sovereign God who, though He demands perfect obedience, has nevertheless opened wide his arms of welcome to sinners. It is because we are conscious of both our own sinfulness and His indescribable condescension and love that we run into His presence with worship and awe. I’m thankful for Bridges and his commitment to live ‘under the gospel’ every day. You will be too.”
Elyse Fitzpatrick, author of Good News for Weary Women

“Joy and fear are not two words that usually go together. Jerry Bridges shows why they do—indeed, must—go together when it comes to our relationship with God. Drawing from deep wells of scriptural and historical reflection, Bridges introduces us to a God who amazes us with His power and woos us with His grace.” 
Trevin Wax, managing editor of The Gospel Project, author of Clear Winter Nights and Holy Subversion

“This classic from Jerry Bridges is the epitome of a journey book—the kind of book that isn’t content to skim the surface of truth, but one that takes us by the hand and leads us into the depths of the knowledge of God. It’s not merely about fearing God. It’s about who God is, about what he’s done in the gospel, and how we should live in the light of his reality.”
Jonathan Parnell, lead pastor, Cities Church, Minneapolis–St. Paul
