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.

    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.

    This is an absolutely powerful book on addictions. It is very insightful and offers the fundamental reasons why so many suffer and succumb to addictions of all kinds. A must read for those struggling with personal addictions, as well as those who love them!

    The very best in biblical material relating to addictions. For years I searched for these kind of answers. The book is very similar to my own writing (which I began in trying to find some answer to the addiction that kept me in bondage for 20 years off and on). I've read the book three times and I am using many of it's excerpts for my book on addictions title "Turning to God from Idols".
