This book is a short read with 0 percent fluff. It is incredibly helpful and is what many people need to realize that yes, sin is in us, and yes, it is a loathsome, nauseating and disgusting monster, but Christ gives us the power to fight and win!!!!!
Thanks Kris! Love your book.
Outside of a small group format, this would be a more difficult book, as the temptation would be to read too many pages at once and not retain much. Still, if you're disciplined and looking for straight talk (and good biblical references) on the power of sin in the believer's life, this might be a good starting place. You'll want to read more than this one book though, as it fails to make all the connections I would have liked (i.e., doesn't get to the good news of Jesus quite as fast or as thoroughly as I would have liked; Jesus conquered sin in the believer's life in a very real way, and talking about the sin issue should always be balanced with this truth).
But - this being said, this would be a marvelous starting place if you're concerned about "doing what you don't want to do" as Paul said in Romans. It's short, an easy read, and if you'll look up the Bible verses in the discussion questions, a great start.
After you're done with this one, you might want to check out the Pursuit of Holiness by Jerry Bridges. It's a harder read (maybe dictionary in hand) but well worth it.
Has discussion questions after each brief chapter.
