Last night I saw online from Justin Taylor’s social media that Christian writer and preacher Jerry Bridges was hospitalized. It turned out that today he passed away and was promoted to eternity.
I appreciate his ministry very much. I just finished last week his book The Transforming Power of the Gospel which I was planning to write and post a review on our blog tomorrow. I have also appreciated other works of his, whether physical books or audio books. Sadly I’ve only heard him preached once. But that one time I heard him preached I remember older seasoned saints were deeply moved and edified.
On Youtube one of the last videos loaded up of his teaching is a teaching Jerry Bridges taught on titled “Trusting God When Life Hurts.” Watch it below:
I’m sure other websites and blog would be posting their memorial of Jerry Bridges. Here are two from Justin Taylor and John Piper:
If you have been blessed by his ministry, how has God used Bridges’ teaching to edify you?
