The Bible says the old life is gone and the new life has come (see 2 Cor. 5:17). But we still sin; still get angry, arrogant, and greedy. Sin destroys everything in its path, yet it's also kind of fun and quite compelling. It often has us holding on to parts of the old life instead of embracing the new life we've been promised.
In Done with That, Pastor Bob Merritt exposes the inner battle we all fight with sin. He exposes the cycle of failure and loss and shows readers that no matter how many setbacks they've experienced, there is a way to enjoy a new and better life in Christ.
Bob Merritt (PhD, Penn State University) has been senior pastor at Eagle Brook Church, a multi-site church with four locations north of the Twin Cities, Minnesota, for twenty years. With 14,000 in average weekend attendance, Eagle Brook is the largest congregation in the five-state area of Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, and the Dakotas. He also teaches homiletics at Bethel Seminary. Merritt lives in Minnesota.
