I have found less evidence that addiction is a disease, and more evidence that it is simply sin, which is a choice. This truth may not be very popular but that does not change the fact that it is a truth, one which I have discovered and experienced in my life.
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.
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…
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.
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.
In the reality of John’s story, we observe the necessity for sound choices, the consequences of poor choices, and the hope of the best choices in a life set free by the grace and goodness of God.
Enjoyed learning the tool that I could use immediately! Powerful and life changing! Effective! Easy to use, practical.
We weren’t here for Sessions 1+2, but I’m sorry we weren’t, because Session 3 was great! Thank you so much for coming and your sharing and honesty. God bless you and your ministry.
John is honest and forthcoming about his life and the power of his choices..I highly recommend these seminars to anyone seeking release from their own addiction issues or dealing with someone who is addicted.
