Publisher's Description

Today, people are able to engage in choice in almost every aspect of their lives - 'choice' is good; we look up to people who pursue their personal goals. The worship of choice enables people to pursue individual self-fulfilment as the main motivating force in their lives. Resisting temptation is not on the agenda.

The fallout in society is a higher level of crime, a lower standard of 'morality', abandonment of ethics at work and an increase in litigation, because failure in our lives must mean 'it's someone else's fault'. The church is also infiltrated - failing to resist temptation has led us to increasing divorce levels, scandal, and internal strife.

Colin Peckham's book is a practical guide to resisting temptation. We discover how temptation works, what places and times to avoid putting yourself into the 'danger zone', and how to escape, both practically and spiritually. He also supplies scriptures to meditate on to defend ourselves in future.

She spent fourteen years in evangelistic ministry, seeing true revival on two occasions in her ministry, before marrying Colin in 1969. They are both survived by three adult children and two grandchildren.

Editorial Reviews

"It sets the scene, describes temptation, warns against danger areas and danger times and has very practical, down-to-earth on how to escape these temptations both practically and spiritually. This reviewer does not know of any other book that gives such excellent consel, advice and warning that is, at the same time, Biblically based, compassionate and practical"

    This book seemed more geared towards someone that is in the ministry that may be struggling with temptation. I did not find a bunch of application to the sin and temptations that I am personally dealing with.
