*sighs* this is the second Jerry Bridges book that I've tried that has come highly recommended by teachers I greatly respect that just doesn't seem to resonate with me. I guess maybe I just come from a very different place? Bridges talks at length about anxiety being a sin and ends with, "can you imagine Jesus being anxious?" as if it is totally out of the realm of possibility that Jesus was ever anxious. However, I would definitely think of Jesus as anxious in the garden before he was arrested and eventually crucified, since He was praying/deeply troubled so much that He sweat blood-- though it is true that He never once sought to place His will over the Father's will. Bridges then goes on to label discontentment a sin. I'm not a scholar, so I don't have a foolproof understanding of all these concepts, but I can't help but feel his discussion has a lot of the right pieces but isn't quite complete and is a bit lopsided. I feel it's as if he's telling starving children, don't eat french fries because they're unhealthy-- sort of right, but also really wrong. I'll try to elaborate more when I finish the book.
