There’s no use pretending: Everybody struggles with temptations. Sometimes those struggles can wear us down and we don’t know where to turn. But, as authors Dr. Arnie Cole and Michael Ross write, “Each struggle presents us with an opportunity for growth and intimacy with God – not condemnation.”
What I really like about this book is how it has so much detail. It clearly defines certain temptations that all people face, it talks about temptations specific to women, and those specific to men. After each chapter there is a “nudge” that lists many different questions and information about the specific temptation, and how to work through it.
I think this book is really a great resource. Because temptation applies to everyone, I honestly believe everyone can benefit from this book. Sitting down and intensely evaluating your life and the struggles that you are going through is good for any person. Finding a way to work through them, and turn the corner is important.
Obviously you don’t want these struggles to control your life, and through the help of these questions and the stories listed, you can get to a much better place.
I received a copy of this book for free from Bethany House in return for my honest review. The opinions are my own.
