Product Description

In some way or another most of us are "stuck"--in a secret sin we can't control or maybe by an inability to stand up for ourselves. In this book, the authors use the vehicle of The Matrix film trilogy to argue that our struggles with habitual sin, thought patterns, damaged emotions, and phobias happen because we do not know how to take charge of the way we experience reality. The authors draw on biblical and psychological insights to provide practical resources for helping believers escape the matrix of the world system that ensnares them. While this book is aimed at the newest generation of Christian readers, all ages will be inspired by the book's innovative strategies for experiencing a deeper life in Christ.

    "Escaping the Matrix" is a theologically (and incidentally psychologically) sound approach to explaining why many Christians are not experiencing God's truth setting them free to live the abundant life Christ has purchased for us. We are encouraged often in Scripture to examine ourselves and to confess our sins; what this book does is explain how to do both in a way that is easy to understand, and sheds light on spiritual warfare. It explains where to begin the process of acquiring "the mind of Christ" that leads to peace and freedom from "the pattern of this world" that traps us in reacting to circumstances and people in old "flesh" ways that go against the spirit-filled nature of our new life in Christ. It is thought-provoking, enlightening, and convicting for anyone who wants to break free from old fears, habits, and sinful behaviors. It offers biblically based information, exercises, and examples of how to overcome lie-based living with truth-filled thinking.

    I would like to hear this bad theology reviewer #1 is talking about as I bought the book but haven't seen this bad theology yet in my reading it. Perhaps if I was told what the theological errors are I won't need to finish reading the book. My rating is based on what I have read in the book so far. I have not finished it.

    Though the problem the authors address is an important problem, their solution isn't much more than New Age mind excercises. Their foundation of mostly bad theology (or maybe sloppy) leads them to mix Christian practice with pop-psychology. I cannot recommend this book to anyone for any reason.
