Product Description

This fall, churches nationwide will be participating in a Life's Healing Choices campaign led by Pastor Rick Warren.
"There is no more relevant word in this economy than recovery. But our most important need isn’t financial recovery, it’s Spiritual Recovery. Everybody is hurting, somewhere. Everybody has a hidden wound. Some don’t know what it is, but everyone has hidden hurts that create fear, problems, worries etc. in their lives...Every single person where you work, in your neighborhood, in your family, every person you’ve ever met needs this series." Rick Warren
Following the same principles from the beatitudes John Baker and Rick Warren developed in Celebrate Recovery, Baker uses them again here as the 8 healing choices and presents an eight week series with a Small Group Study and a Guided Journal sold separately.

Publisher's Description


LIFE HAPPENS.

Happiness and Healing are yours for the choosing.

We've all been hurt by other people, we've hurt ourselves, and we've hurt others. And as a result, every single one of us ends up with some sort of hurt, hang-up, or habit. But the question we all face is, Where do we go from here?

Life's Healing Choices offers freedom from our hurts, hang-ups, and habits through eight healing choices that promise true happiness and life transformation. Using the Beatitudes of Jesus as a foundation, Senior Pastor Rick Warren of Saddleback Church and John Baker, who is also a pastor at Saddleback, developed the eight choices shared in this book.

In addition to practical, encouraging biblical teaching, each chapter includes two real-life stories of men and women whose lives have been transformed by living out the eight choices in this book. Through making each of these choices, you too will find God's pathway to wholeness, growth, spiritual maturity, happiness, and healing. You'll find real answers, real hope, and a real future -- one healing choice at a time.

Author Bio

John F. Baker Jr. is the founder of Celebrate Recovery, a ministry started at Saddleback Church. Over the past twenty-one years, it is estimated that more than a million people have gone through this Christ-centered recovery program. There are currently more than 20,000 churches that have weekly Celebrate Recovery meetings. Rick Warren was born in San Jose, California, and founded Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, California, in 1980. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from California Baptist University, a Master of Divinity from Southwestern Theological Seminary, and a Doctor of Ministry degree from Fuller Theological Seminary. Rick and his wife, Kay, live in Trabuco Canyon, California, and have three children.

Publisher's Weekly

A pastor of the same Saddleback Church that's famous for bestselling author Rick Warren (who provides the foreword), Baker designs an eight-step Christian recovery program geared toward enjoying spiritual freedom from hurts, hangups and bad habits. Baker's book is based on Warren's sermon series Road to Recovery, which has been tested in the lives of more than 400,000 people in 10,000 churches. Baker's eight steps to spiritual freedom (admitting need, getting help, letting go, coming clean, making changes, repairing relationships, maintaining momentum and recycling pain) promise to help Christians overcome many kinds of addictive behaviors. Baker likens them to AA's 12-step program, but clarifies that Christ is the source of lasting change. He writes that as believers refuse to admit their powerlessness to overcome tendencies to do wrong, their lives are fraught with fear, frustration, fatigue and failure. The cure? Admitting weakness with a humble heart; then praying, writing and sharing with others about the problem. Each chapter includes moving narratives of participants in Baker's program who express how its principles changed their lives. These practical, pithy how-tos will galvanize Christians into action with the simplicity of Baker's easy-to-actualize plan. Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

Editorial Reviews

"You will be inspired, and your life will be changed in dramatic ways as you read through the pages of this book." —Rick Warren, author of The Purpose Driven Life
"Sometimes, recovery, healing, and spiritual growth are talked about as if they are three different topics. What I like about John's work is that he brings them all together, and we find that no matter what our issues, we are all on the same path. Life's Healing Choices will be a help along that path to all who read it." —Dr. Henry Cloud, author of Boundaries
"This is a book whose time has come. John Baker's worldwide ministry and reputation, coupled with a strong biblical approach, make this book a must for anyone who hurts and wants God to heal them. My personal friendship with John and years of involvement in his work have shown me his heart, his calling, and his gifts to the world. I highly recommend this book." —Dr. John Townsend, psychologist, author of Who's Pushing Your Buttons? and coauthor of Boundaries

    This is an outstanding guidebook for a small group especially who desire to celebrate recovery. I have used it in church groups and even in prison ministry effectively.

    This book is VERY good for new Christians and people in recovery from many types of abuse. I don't think it is geared toward mature Christians. I tried and tried, but I could not get past chapter 5. I felt like I knew the information. I didn't feel like God was speaking to me through this book like He has so many others.

    I did dislike a few things about the book. One, it seems like it is based on the twelve steps of AA, just taken down to eight steps. Two, it REALLY seemed to push Saddleback Church throughout the book (the part that I was able to read). I understand that this book was written by members of the church, but it seemed like the church name was slipped in there as often as possible, and frankly, I felt like they were giving more glory to the church than to God.

    Excellent book. Helps one understand and recognize Denial in one's life, how to deal with it and issues of the past so that you can let go of the past to enjoy the present and look forward to the future.
