A worship disorder: this is how Edward T. Welch views addictions. Will we worship ourselves and our own desires, he writes, or will we worship the true God? With this lens the author discovers far more in Scripture on addictions than passages on drunkenness. There we learn the addict's true condition: like guests at a banquet thrown by the woman Folly, he is already in the grave (Prov. 9:13-18). Can we not escape our addictions? If we're willing to follow Jesus, the author says we have immense hope hope in God's forgiving grace, hope in God's love that is faithful even when we are not, and hope that God can give power so that we are no longer mastered by the addiction. Each chapter concludes with Practical Theology, guidance As You Face Your Own Addictions and As You Help Someone Else.… (més)

Very Biblical description of addictions and how they can take over a persons life. The book uses the illustration of alcohol but frequently refers to other addictions making it clear that all addictions can be dealt with in the same way. Very practical advice pointing people to the Bible as the source of all hope in this situation. Recommended. ( )

Must read for anyone doing counseling, whether as a friend or as a pastor. ( )

A solid reminder that our only hope in life is in Christ! If we are not following God and His Word, we will be following after something else. A must-have for any biblical counselor. ( )

Bound as I was, not with another man's irons, but by my own iron will. My will the enemy held, and thence had made a chain for me, and bound me. For of a froward will, was lust mad; and a lust served, became custom; and custom not registered became necessity. By which links, as it were, joined together (when I called it a chain) a hard bondage held me enthralled.
Augustine, "Confessions, Book 8"

[Preface] There is an accepted tradition among those who struggle with addictions that goes something like this: helping yourself will help others, and helping others will help yourself.
Jim had been sober or a year--an amazing feat for someone who had been drunk about half his forty-five years.
[Conclusion] If we are convinced that we need the body of Christ, if we are persuaded that we need to pursue relationships with God's people, if we believe that we must meet together often, what does this look like?
