The Heart of Addiction: A Biblical Perspective
There is HOPE
I have used this book and accompanying workbook for 2 years in a small group setting in our church. The small group consists of individuals from our Celebrate Recovery, our church's Biblical counseling ministry, and others that want a deeper and more meaningful approach to transforming their lifes. Surprisingly, it is not just addicts or drunkards that attend. Family members also desire a Biblical perspective to the Heart of Addiction. The small group runs for 26 weeks. The Heart of Addiction gives real world instruction based on biblical principles. After all the first recorded drunken binge was Noah. Studying the book, the addict or drunkard learns that their problem is really their sin nature, the same sin nature that has raged in all of mankind since Genesis 3. The world calls it a disease or hereditary and says that there is no hope. The Bible calls it a sin and that there is redeemtion for sin through Christ Jesus, He is their Hope.

Though written primarily for alcohol/drug addiction, this book is so helpful for ANY type of addiction: gambling, sex, shopping, lust,porn, etc. It is solid and biblical!! Once I learned that addiction at its core is idolatry, and that I have a worship problem, true healing and Godly change began to take place. HIGHLY recommend this book and the workbook.
