Product Description

Are you one (or do you know someone) of the literally thousands who suffer from an eating disorder? Has binging on food and then purging become a daily part of your routine? There is hope! In Have You Fallen Into the Pit? author Marie Notcheva draws from her own personal experiences to show you how to overcome this life-destroying habit. Notcheva believes that an eating disorder is not a "disease", she believes those suffering from eating disorders become so by a series of choices. They chose to feel a certain way about themselves. They chose to start on a path of behavior that leads to a destructive habit. Notcheva shows you how to believe that such behavior is a sin, not a disease. And how believing the Bible is the Word of God, and trusting in His sacrifice, will lead you to victory over your eating disorder.

Publisher's Description

HAVE YOU FALLEN INTO THE PIT? * Up to 3% of ALL adolescents in the United States have symptoms of bulimia. * 5-15% of ALL adult women show the same signs. Are you one (or do you know someone) of the literally thousands who suffer from an eating disorder, most likely bulimia? Do you see yourself as fat and unattractive? Do you feel as though you don't "fit in" and suffer from periods of deep depression? Has binging on food and then purging become a daily part of your routine? HERE IS HOPE! Drawing from her own experiences with the disorder, author Marie Notcheva shows you how to overcome this life-destroying habit. No, not by some contrived "self help" system—but by the power of the Lord Jesus Christ! Notcheva believes that the person suffering from an eating disorder is not a victim of a "disease";it is not something that has befallen them or has been thrust upon them. Rather, the bulimic became so by a series of choices. They chose to feel a certain way about themselves. They chose to start on a path of behavior that leads to a destructive habit. Likewise, those suffering from bulimia can start making correct choices. They can make the choice to believe that their behavior is sin, not a disease. They can believe that the Bible is the Word of God, and that by trusting in the sacrifice of Christ for sinners, they can have new life—and that they can have victory, not only over bulimia, but over the greatest threat of all: eternal destruction. This book may indeed prove to be a "life saver" to many. It will certainly give tremendous hope to all who read it. FORWARD by Martha Peace

Author/Artist Review

Author: Marie Notcheva

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I am a Christian author, certified biblical counselor, wife and mother from Massachusetts. I specialize in counseling women with eating disorders, and pointing them towards the Great Physician.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  “I battled both anorexia and bulimia from age 15 to 32. Chapters 1 and 14 include my testimony, but the book is not an autobiography. My purpose in writing it was to point other women towards the Great Physician, and share with them the same lessons God had taught me. Those were the hardest chapters to write, because an eating disorder is something so deeply personal. It was much easier to write about the theology of repentance, and how to ‘take every thought captive’ than about my own personal struggle.”

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  Anorexia and bulimia are learned behaviors—which, by God’s grace, can be unlearned. God offers forgiveness and cleansing from ‘addictions.’ This is GOOD news! God’s Word has already given us the answer: faith and repentance. Some of the harshest criticism I have received for calling them ‘sins’ has actually come from Christians. If we are in Christ, we do have the power by His Spirit to turn around and overcome any self-destructive behavior enslaving us. Helping people realize this is one of the most loving things we can do. Popular wisdom claims that someone with an eating disorder will ‘never be recovered; but always in recovery.’ Where’s the hope in that? Compare that with 1 Corinthians 6, which says the believer can leave behind their old way of life and be totally transformed.”

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  Putting in writing the lessons God had taught me through reading His Word and repenting was valuable. I was able to articulate the importance of understanding our position in Christ to our ongoing sanctification - overcoming any sin, in His power, is possible because of the Cross.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  Stuart Scott, Jay Adams, and Elyse Fitzpatrick are wonderful writers and biblical counselors, as is Martha Peace, who wrote the Foreword of "Redeemed from the Pit". Martha was very helpful. She went over each chapter with a fine-toothed comb, making sure that my language was unambiguously clear and biblical. Martha also brings decades of experience from the counseling room to her perspective, and that was extremely valuable.”

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  I blog at "redeemedfromthepitblogspotcom".
