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

Addiction, according to Welch, is when we worship ourselves and our desires instead of the true God.

Editorial Reviews

By emphasizing the role of the heart in the worship of self and substance, Welch forces the addict to face the grim reality that who or what he worships will control his life.As a pastor, biblical counselor, and a redeemed (not recovering) ex-heroin addict, I believe Dr. Welch has finally given every pastor, theologian, layman, and anyone caught in the bondage of idolatry/addiction a biblical road map to true and lasting freedom.
Addiction—A Banquet in the Grave is one of the most helpful books providing practical theology on addictions to come along to date. It provides, in a very direct manner, biblical strategies for the church to assist sinners in need of gospel first-aid. Vital reading for anyone in a leadership position in the church, it will be, especially, valuable to friends and family members desiring to help those struggling with addictions of all sorts.
Biblically sound, practical, filled with Christ-like compassion. . . . This much-needed book offers real hope and the promise of victory in Jesus to those struggling with addiction.
