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.
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.
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…
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…
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.
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.
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…
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.
