From the depths of darkness and despair to the light of freedom, John relates his journey of addiction to his ultimate trust in God to release the chains that bound him. In a very personal, real and vivid form of writing, John takes you through a chronological account of how it all started and how he ultimately listened to his savior Jesus Christ. What followed was a peace and power that he had never experienced, a presence that enabled him to rise up and live a life where all things are possibl…
This is a great book. It reaches into the desperate worlds of addiction and through relating John’s life experience, tells us how to make right choices and find deliverance! For anyone who has made the poor choice of addiction, there is truly a better way. Read and respond to John’s life story and perhaps you will be helped, or be able to help others who are in the grip of addiction. Rev Mike Pounds, Founder and Director Community Compassion Connections.
I am the President of an Addiction Recovery organization. I am always on the lookout for good books on this subject. When someone pointed this book out to me, I purchased it right away. The content is good with John’s real life stories. I have found that you can try to educate people about the harmful effects of addiction and they hear you but it doesn’t have the same effect as when they hear real life stories. I will recommend this book to others.
The author writes in an honest, straightforward, tell-it-like-it-is style. His experiences with drug addiction and finding the way out are what we all need to hear. I highly recommend not only reading this book, but using it in small groups, as each chapter provides thoughtful questions for application.
The Addict’s Choices is a refreshingly transparent and unique look into the mindset of an addict. The title makes it clear that an addict is not a simple victim, but does have choices (p.143). The strength of this book is that it presents practical tools for anyone seeking hope and freedom. John presents different examples of the biblical concept of “put off” and “put on”, where each of us – whatever our addiction – have a choice to either follow the philosophy of this world and…
Good presentation John and Sally. The smiles on both of you are encouraging and allow people to feel comfortable with you as instructors, which enables people to receive.
My prayer is that this book will help the churches begin to address the reality of addiction among its members, whether it is addiction to substances, sex, food or people’s approval, etc. We can no longer keep our head in the sand thinking that our own members do not struggle with various addictions. This book could be the catalyst to helping churches begin to openly discuss those things that enslave us. We cannot fulfill the command to “carry one another’s burden” (Gal.6:2) without bein…
If you are someone who has struggled with overcoming addiction, this is a great resource for you! John Childress is very real and shares his personal journey and struggles in detail so that others can see the transforming power that God can have in their lives as well. Many often think that there is no way to truly overcome an addiction, and John’s story shows that with God’s power you can overcome anything! His life’s story and journey is a true testimony of overcoming and turning adversity int…
