He opened the preface with these words: "'If God has redeemed me from sin, and given me His Holy Spirit to sanctify me and give me strength against sin, why do I go on sinning?' This question has plagued me throughout my life of faith. In my lowest moments it has brought despair; it has even darkened the edges of my brightest times (p. 13). Who of us, if we take sin seriously, has not struggled with similar thoughts. Lundegaard takes the rest of the book to explore the hold that sin has over us and the power of Christ to help us to overcome. Lundegaard has provided a useful, readable volume that provides resources against sin and a simple introduction to Owen.
Now, to pull Owen off my shelf and try him again.
If so, then this book may be the springboard for a changed life. Learn what sin is--how detestable it is to God, how powerful it is in each of us, how it quietly appeals to us and blinds us to what God really has intended for His children, and then discover tools you can use to change.
I know that my walk will not be the same after reading this book and doing the exercises. It is so easy to read and makes so much sense; I can't believe I was this blind to what sin really is. But now I see.
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.
The book is very easy to read and the applications are very apparent throughout the book. The book is very challenging but you walk away from it with a good idea of how to battle the sin in your life.
Probably the best outcome of this book was that I realized that fighting sin is really an all-out war that we need to be ready to fight, with the power of God (and not our own power) spurring us on.
