The Heart of Addiction: A Biblical Perspective
Sin is rebellion against God; it is a heart set on having its own way. Christians are not powerless to truly overcome an “addiction” if they have the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit to enable them to say ‘no’ to choices that will mentally enslave them.
This book makes the distinction between what the world terms a “disease” and what Scripture demonstrates is a life-dominating sin nature problem. Here you will find biblical tools to help you examine your heart’s motives at the root of the “addiction.” The Heart of Addiction is being heralded as the leading, practical book on addictions from a biblical perspective today.
