Cut the power of addiction at the roots, never to rise again
People often become addicted – to alcohol, sex, drugs or gambling – because they are seeking to escape from terrible inner pain. Addictions of many kinds are widespread today – particularly to pornography and gambling due to easily accessed internet sites – and many Christians are looking for help in escaping the grip of addiction.
Key insights in this book include
- Psychological, physiological and spiritual dynamics of addiction
- Addiction’s imprisoning effects
- The journey to freedom
- How to develop a new – and true – personal identity
Each chapter includes case studies, activities, reflections and a prayer. With a Foreward by Steve Motyer (Theology and Counselling Course Leader at London School of Theology), this book will be invaluable for those struggling with addiction and for those who help and counsel them.
The Waverley Abbey Insight Series is based on one-day seminars held by CWR at Waverley Abbey House to give insight into some key issues that many people struggle with today.
“The Insight series covers many of the big topics of our time in an accessible and practical way. We thoroughly recommend them.” – Patrick and Diane Regan
