"One of the most helpful books providing practical theology on addictions. Welchs assessment of addictions as a problem that proceeds from the heart, involving issues of worship and idolatry, is central to helping people grow and change. This is vital reading for church leaders, and for friends and family desiring to help those struggling with addictions." --John Freeman, HARVEST USA
"Destroys the myth that addiction is a disease and sin is a sickness. Welch shows that the hopeless cycle of sickness, recovery, and relapse must be replaced with the biblical view of sin, salvation, and sanctification. As a pastor, biblical counselor, and redeemed (not recovering) ex-heroin addict, I believe Welch has given every pastor, parishioner, and anyone caught in the bondage of idolatry/addiction a biblical road map to lasting freedom." --Peter Garich, Dayspring Center for Biblical Counseling
"Biblically sound, practical, filled with Christ-like compassion. . . . This much-needed book offers real hope and the promise of victory in Jesus to those struggling with addiction." --Robert E. Emberger, Whosoever Gospel Mission
From the Publisher

I found the book became better and better as I read through each chapter. Welch offers concrete suggestions, a biblical framework for understanding this endemic issue, and hope.
He gives wisdom on some ways to deal with people who have the especially life-altering addictions (alcohol, drugs, etc). He points the Christian to Jesus, the source of the Christian's power to change, and the source of the Christian's salvation. He helps expose the fact that things in this world lie to us when they promise things that only God can provide. He shows the folly of looking to things in this world when Jesus is so much better.
Highly recommended both for those who are addicted and for those who desire to help people who are addicted.
