Todd D. Hunter focuses on showing us how much of our behavior is in fact sin and getting to the root of these sin issues. This book isn't written to condemn but rather to help us overcome and defeat these sins once and for all. Most of the sins addressed in this book are things considered "socially acceptable," for example, procrastination, over-eating, and media addiction, laziness.
Hunter, also an Anglican bishop, gives us beautiful, powerful prayers from ancient liturgies as one remedy
for dealing with our disordered desires. He also discusses baptism, communion, Bible study, prayer and Christian fellowship. He suggests these disciplines as a means toward eventual victory over desires that mess up our lives in ways we really don't want.
I would recommend this book to readers of any faith, this is a great book to keep on your nightstand, and pick it up often and read. Also would be great as a gift for anyone.
I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers (booksneeze.com) as part of their book review bloggers program.
