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.
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…
This is an amazingly candid book. If you have an addiction or know someone who does, this is the book for you. There is no psychobabble or empty theories about addiction. John writes from his heart about his own struggles and failures and how he found the only true answer to all of life’s problems. Sometimes the truth is hard to find or recognize, even when it is right in our face, but if you allow yourself to embrace the truth of Jesus Christ, He can set you free from ALL of your addictions.

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.
Thank you for being so personable and honest. You have encouraged my heart and opened my mind to some new points.
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.
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.
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…
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.
Come back soon! You help me greatly!
