The Essential Guide^for Beating Temptation

^^^^^^
Falling for temptation isn't inevitable. We don't have to^lose the fight. In fact, we can win if we understand the root of the problem^and what Christians have done from the beginning to beat it. Our Favorite Sins shines a much-needed^light in our lives' dark corners and reveals the time-tested methods for^getting victory over sin.??


Are you tyrannized by your own desires?

^^
If you are breathing, your answer is probably yes.

^^^^
The question is: What are you^going to do about it?


^^^^
With more than thirty^years of pastoral experience, Todd D. Hunter knows that most people-himself^included-struggle every day with temptation. All too often, we fail and fall,^and some of us are at our wit's end, utterly defeated. What do we do to get a^grip on the sin in our life and live like God wants???

^^^^
There's good news: despite^all our failures and shameful "moments after," there really is a way out, a way^forward, and a way that draws us closer to the life that God desires for us.??

^^^^
In Our Favorite Sins, Hunter cracks open the problem of temptation and^points to practical, biblically based, time-tested solutions. First revealing^the role played by our disordered desires, Hunter shows how different^temptations trip us up and how we can resist and overcome them, even if we've^fallen prey to them for decades. Victory starts with reordering our desires,^and the church has given us the tools for the job. Hunter shows us how to use^them and start beating the temptations that so often beat us.??

^^
Informed by exclusive^research from the Barna Group, Our^Favorite Sins offers a view that works for any believer wherever they are^and no matter how big the battle they're fighting.


Endorsements:


"The most deceptive part of sin is its ability to blind us to its^reality in our lives. Todd Hunter offers sane and helpful guidance about the^way out."-John Ortberg, senior^pastor, Menlo Park Presbyterian Church; author of The Me I Want to Be

^^^^^^
"It is so easy to^miss our potential in life due to getting caught up in our weaknesses and temptations.^Todd helps us understand not only how to recognize the subtle sins that can^distract us, but how to be like Jesus when facing them."-Dan Kimball, author of They^Like Jesus But Not the Church

^^
"Todd Hunter^draws on ancient practices in order to provide insight and strategy to face^temptations in our lives. This book will help you think about how you can not^just ask God to deliver you from temptation but be intentional about finding a^way of escape." -Margaret Feinberg,^www.margaretfeinberg.com, author of Scouting^the Divine and The Sacred






^^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^


^ ^
"Todd Hunter gets it: Nothing should stand in the way of full^devotion to Christ."-Bill Hybels, senior pastor, Willow Creek^Community Church; chairman, Willow Creek Association^

^
^ ^^^^^^^
"In Our^Favorite Sins, Hunter combines^modern language and research with classic understanding in providing a fresh^look at our most deadly sins. His suggestions for 'ancient and fruitful'^practices will be very helpful to many in reorienting desire toward living life^with God."-Gary W. Moon, M.Div.,^Ph.D., executive director, Martin Family Institute and Dallas Willard Center^for Spiritual Formation, Westmont College; author of Apprenticeship with Jesus

^^^^
"This book speaks powerfully to some of my own deepest spiritual^struggles. In offering candid, informed counsel on 'our favorite sins,' Todd^Hunter has given me, and multitudes like me, an important spiritual treasure."-Dr. Richard Mouw, president, Fuller Seminary; author of Praying at Burger King

"Todd Hunter^is the only man I know who can talk about sin with an appealing easiness and,^at the time, with an equally appealing candor. I can almost guarantee that^you'll enjoy his conversation and end up very grateful for having had the^chance to read it."-Phyllis Tickle,^author of The Great Emergence


"One of the most persistent and least talked about questions for^Christians are these: If sin is so bad, then why are we drawn to it?^If it wrecks human lives-which it does, every time-then what is^so appealing about its temptations? Is there any help for those who^want to find freedom from sin? Todd Hunter has delved deeply^into this matter, and in this excellent and accessible book Hunter^offers us not only insight into why we sin, but how we can begin to^turn from its false promises. The body of Christ needs this book. -James Bryan Smith,^author of The Good and Beautiful God??



^^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^


^ ^
"One of the greatest intellectual achievements of the Christian^tradition is its notion of original sin. People will make a mess^of anything, of everything. Todd Hunter has gifted us with an^inspiring book that suggests habits of holiness for everyday living and moving and having our being amid human suckitude^and stinkiness. But most of all, Bishop Hunter gives us hope^that "where sin abounded, grace did much more abound." -Leonard Sweet, best-selling author, professor,^and chief contributor to Sermons.com
