'Temptations: Our Dark Side,' is a product of the able pen of Dr. Luciano Jaramillo Cardenas, who takes on the thorny and controversial subject of the moral, ethical and spiritual life of the leader, pastor and Christian minister. This book should be required reading for anyone occupying a position in the management or administration of a church or ministry; and for every believer who seeks assistance when attempting to make progress in the difficult path of faithfulness to the Lord. This book takes an in-depth look at such important and practical themes as moral integrity and ways the enemy tempts and attacks everyone, but in particular the ministers and leaders of the people of God. He describes with great clarity and perspicacity the various temptations that we may encounter in our lives as believers: the seductions of money, of sex, of power, of discouragement, and of convenience. However, Dr. Jaramillo does not limit the discussion to a description of the problem. In clear and elegant prose he also offers solutions and methods for confronting and conquering the enemy, and ways that we can overcome the enemy's attacks on our integrity. This book is seasoned throughout with Biblical references and illustrated with solid examples taken from the Scriptures and from real life.
