Product Description

In Addictions: A Banquet in the Grave Welch teaches that the hopelessness of the "sickness, recovery, relapse" cycle needs to be replaced with the biblical view of sin, salvation, and sanctification. The addict must face the fact that what and who he worships will control his life and that true freedom can only come through the cross. Paperback.

Publisher's Description

Addiction, according to Welch, is when we worship ourselves and our desires instead of the true God.

Author Bio

Edward T. Welch (PhD, University of Utah) serves both the Christian Counseling and Educational Foundation (CCEF) and Westminster Theological Seminary. At CCEF, he is director of counseling and academic dean, as well as a counselor and faculty member. At Westminster, he is professor of practical theology. He is author of Blame It on the Brain and When People Are Big and God Is Small and has contributed to several other books and journals, including the Journal of Psychology and Christianity.

Editorial Reviews

By emphasizing the role of the heart in the worship of self and substance, Welch forces the addict to face the grim reality that who or what he worships will control his life.As a pastor, biblical counselor, and a redeemed (not recovering) ex-heroin addict, I believe Dr. Welch has finally given every pastor, theologian, layman, and anyone caught in the bondage of idolatry/addiction a biblical road map to true and lasting freedom.
Addiction—A Banquet in the Grave is one of the most helpful books providing practical theology on addictions to come along to date. It provides, in a very direct manner, biblical strategies for the church to assist sinners in need of gospel first-aid. Vital reading for anyone in a leadership position in the church, it will be, especially, valuable to friends and family members desiring to help those struggling with addictions of all sorts.
Biblically sound, practical, filled with Christ-like compassion. . . . This much-needed book offers real hope and the promise of victory in Jesus to those struggling with addiction.

    Ed Welch is such a great communicator. He takes the Truth of God and through His Word shows that what AA and NA call a disease, shows that same progression of addiction to be sin as plainly described in Gods Word. I teach this in jail and the response has been extremely favorable. They all say noone told us it was a spiritaul battle. they never saw thier problem as sin.

    They love Ed and relate to what He says.

    It is also a huge eye opener to the church and her responsibility to not shun away from certain people or sins. but to embrace them knowing God Himself has equipped the church with the answers to the problems of life and sin and all kinds of addictions. i am trying to get other churchs to read this and teach this to themselves 1st then open thier hearts to all.

    This book is not just a life changer that puts a bandaid on an addiction. but transforms a heart by the truth no longer leaving them to say Hi Im so and so and im an alcoholic. now they can say hi im so and so and I no longer live for me but am living for Jesus. i am being transformed by the renewing of my mind through Gods grace, mercy, and His word

    The author presents the topic of addiction clearly, and moved me from a 12-Step-only (disease-oriented) understanding to a faith-based understanding (addiction as sin). I highly recommend this book to all who are serious in understanding addiction and what it's all about.

    This book is right on. It completely brings hope back to our relationship and is a refreshing and hopefilled perspective. I already have to order another because I gave my copy away.
