After studying through Romans 1, where Paul details the grotesque sins of a culture given over to the wrath of God, Christians could be tempted to think that some sins are of greater or lessor seriousness in the eyes of God. 
In Respectable Sins, Jerry Bridges helps us see that all sin is serious in the eyes of God, and that the call to holiness means we are to fight every sin in our lives, this includes what we would call respectable or “small” sins. Some of the sins he deals with in this book are things like, lying, gossip, gluttony, pride, unthankfulness, and anger. These are things that we all deal with, and we need to see how the power of the gospel works in us to change even these, “respectable sins.”
