The sins that Bridges discusses are ungodliness, anxiety and frustration, discontentment, unthankfulness, pride, selfishness, lack of self control, impatience and irritability, anger, judgmentalism, envy and jealousy, sins of the tongue, and worldliness. He spends no more than about ten pages defining and talking about the problems with these sins.
One of the strengths of this book is that it deals with many of the most common sins that we allow to slip through the cracks, thinking along the lines that some of the other sins we commit are much more serious in the nature of offense than some of these listed. Another strength of the book is that Bridges takes some time to show what constitutes committing these sins. For example, we are told in the Bible to be angry in some situations but to not sin. With regard to most of the sins Bridges talks about, few are dealt with in any other works. The few exceptions are ungodliness, sins of the tongue, and worldliness, dealt with by Jerry Bridges, Paul Tripp, and C. J. Mahaney respectively.
Anyone interested in this book can just turn to the sins that they struggle with or can familiarize themselves with them all. The chapters are very short, allowing easy time windows to manage if you are busy and have to work around a tight schedule. You could even read a chapter over a short break at work! Bridges is a very clear and thoughtful writer. He presents this critical topic in a very easy to understand way.
