I have profited from the ministry of Jerry Bridges.  After reading Pursuit of Holiness, I had the privilege to hear him speak.  He was so quiet and low key that my first impression was, "this is going to be a long, dry session."  After a few more words, I was hooked.  Every word was pure gold. 

I was able to converse with him, and his second wife (I believe her name was Jane), who was quite a bit younger than he.  My impression is that Jerry Bridges was a genuinely humble and godly man.  His ministry has been blessed of God and had a far reaching impact which will likely continue for many years.  If you have time to read only one of his books, I would recommend Trusting God Even When Life Hurts.  I have read it several times, and distributed it to many others.  It's a classic!
