One of my modern day heroes, author and Bible teacher Jerry Bridges, was kind enough to read my forthcoming book Surprised by Grace (Crossway Books, May 2010) and offer this super encouraging endorsement:
The book of Jonah is more than the story of a prophet who ran from God. It is actually the story of the grace of God which overcomes Jonah's stubborn rebellion. In this outstanding book Tullian Tchividjian helps us see that there is something of Jonah in all of us, and that we stand in need of the same grace of God every day. I was both convicted and encouraged by this book, and highly recommend it to every Christian.
Thank-you Jerry. You have consistantly pushed me to Jesus by teaching me that the gospel doesn't simply ignite the Christian life; it's the fuel that keeps Christians going and growing every day.
