Tempted and Tried

Tempted and Tried

Russell Moore

$19.99

Paperback
Although temptation is a common and well-acknowledged part of the human experience, few realize the truth behind temptation and fewer still know how to defeat it. Tempted and Tried will not reassure Christians by claiming that temptation is less powerful or less prevalent than it is; instead, it will prepare believers for battle by telling the truth about the cosmic war that is raging. Moore shows that the temptation of every Christian is part of a broader conspiracy against God, a conspiracy that confronts everyone who shares the flesh of Jesus through human birth and especially confronts those who share the Spirit of Christ through the new birth of redemption.

Moore walks readers through the Devil's ancient strategies for temptation revealed in Jesus' wilderness testing. Moore considers how those strategies might appear in a contemporary context and points readers to a way of escape. Tempted and Tried will remind Christians that temptation must be understood in terms of warfare, encouraging them with the truth that victory has already been secured through the triumph of Christ.

Highest-quality read on the nature of temptation
5 stars By Angus, Aug 05 2016
Wonderful book outlining the strategies of deceit that Satan uses which we face daily and that Jesus has triumphed over and has directly faced. Gets to the heart of not only what we desire when we are tempted, but how to resist temptation and to trust that, ultimately, God alone will provide what we crave. Fantastically written and soaked in Scripture; if you could only read one book on temptation in a lifetime, choose this one.
