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

A worship disorder: this is how Edward T. Welch views addictions. "Will we worship ourselves and our own desires, " he writes, "or will we worship the true God?" With this lens the author discovers far more in Scripture on addictions than passages on drunkenness. There we learn the addict's true condition: like guests at a banquet thrown by "the woman Folly, " he is already in the grave (Prov. 9:13-18). Can we not escape our addictions? If we're willing to follow Jesus, the author says we have "immense hope hope in God's forgiving grace, hope in God's love that is faithful even when we are not, and hope that God can give power so that we are no longer mastered by the addiction." Each chapter concludes with "Practical Theology, " guidance "As You Face Your Own Addictions" and "As You Help Someone Else."

    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".
