“I’ve personally benefited immensely from Jerry Bridges’s writings on God’s holiness and providence…I am thrilled at the release of God Took Me by the Hand!” – Randy Alcorn

Jerry Bridges’ life is a remarkable story of God’s providence. From “a most unpromising beginning” as a poor kid from the wrong side of the tracks, he joined the Navy, went to college, became an engineer, joined The Navigators as a missionary, and eventually became a best-selling author. In this book, Jerry illustrates through his story—and then summarizes for the reader—seven key “spiritual lessons” that God has taught him through his 83 years. These lessons can be passed on to any believer.
