'Many books are written by experts. This book isn't one of them,' admits Tim Chester. 'It was written out of my own struggle to change. My long battle with particular issues set me searching the Bible as well as writings from the past. This book shares the amazing truths I discovered that now give me hope.'
'For years I wondered if I'd ever overcome certain sins. And while I can't claim to have conquered sin - for no one ever can do - here are discoveries that have led to change in my life and in the lives of others.'
You may be:
a new Christian, struggling to change the habits of your former way of life
an older Christian, feeling you've plateaued: you grew quickly when you first believed but now your Christian life is much of a muchness
a Christian who's fallen into sin in a big way, wondering how you'll ever get back on track
Other books describe how we should live, but this book outlines how we can change. It's about hope: the hope we have in Jesus, hope for forgiveness, and hope for real and lasting change. God promises liberating grace and transforming power to his people.
A practical, interactive, and solidly biblical book designedto help Christians in all stages of life to find victory over sinby focusing on what God has already done in us.It's about heart change, not behavior change. That's theconviction of Tim Chester as he seeks to help everyday Christians"connect the truth about God with our Monday-morning struggles."This interactive book, laid out in workbook fashion, is for newerChristians struggling with sin and for more mature Christians whohave plateaued in their faith as they seek to find victory over sinin their lives.With a conviction that sanctification is God's work and thejourney to holiness is joyful, Chester guides readers through a"change project"-beginning with the selection of one area of lifethey would like to modify. Each chapter includes a question (e.g., Why would you like to change? What truths do you need to turn to?)to guide readers as they deal with a specific sin or struggle, truths from God's word, and a reflection guide to help readersthrough their change project.
