    1. Hope for the Heart


    Using the language and stories of former drug addicts and alcoholics transformed by Jesus Christ, Don Wilkerson makes a contrast between the drinking "high" of drugs and the experience with the Most High God.

    Don Writes, "Using Apostle Paul's admonition to not be drunk with wine wherein is "excess" but be "filled with the Spirit" (Ephesians 5:18) I make a similar contrast between joy in the Lord and the false euphoria of the life of the addict on drugs. There is also possible scientific evidence that if the brain waves of someone on cocaine were compared with someone joyful in the Lord the latter would show a "peace that passes all understanding."

    Wilkerson shares 12 chapters based on the real-life experiences of addicts finding supernatural answers to their addiction; these stories are sometimes humorous but nevertheless real. It is hopeful you will finding the reading of this book a joyful experience. There is an important message in this book for those needing freedom from addiction as well an encouragement for those in recovery. Read this then share with some else and spread joy where needed.
