Millions of readers have experienced spiritual breakthroughs with the help of Neil Anderson's classic book Victory Over the Darkness. Now, in his new eight-study "Victory Series," he helps readers recognize that truth alone will not set them free. Truth must be acknowledged, experienced, and intellectually discussed in order for it to take root. Students of this study will discover who God is and who they are in Him.
Renewing Your Mind is the fourth study in the series of eight "Victory in Christ" studies that promise to set a new standard for discipleship training. This six-session study shows the believer how to live under grace with a renewed mind. Anderson also shows the reader how to overcome anger, anxiety, depression, and loss.
The study includes a small group leader's guide, along with illustrations, questions for deeper reflection and practical applications.

As people created in the image of God, we have been given the capacity to choose what we do and do not believe. Yet even followers of Christ often stay mired in misguided ways and unhealthy thought patterns.
In Renewing Your Mind, Dr. Neil Anderson reminds us that faith is a journey of growth, and that as we mature in our beliefs, we should experience a total change from the inside out. In this fourth of eight Victory Series studies, you will learn how to allow Christ to rule in your heart, be led by the Spirit, tear down mental strongholds that keep you in bondage, live under grace, and overcome anger, depression, and losses. This study, with six sessions, can be used individually or in a group, and includes a leader's guide, along with illustrations and questions for deeper reflection and practical applications.
We are not called to dispel darkness on our own; instead, being an overcomer means knowing how to turn to the light of Christ, our source of truth. Only in doing so will we win the battle for our minds.

Anderson. This study is designed to aid readers to come closer to God; relying on God to lead us and break down mental blocks that keep us from the life God intends for us to lead. The author explores these mental blocks such as depression, loss, and anger. The author teaches through Scripture and adds reflective questions that are designed to get the reader to ponder the authors points.
As I worked through this book, I thought that the author made some great points on each topic. The Scriptures were very helpful and the questions solidified each chapter. This book is a great beginner in the journey of renewing your mind and I recommend it highly.
Note: I have received a copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.

This book can benefit Christians on ever y level. We all face challenges and need to be reminded at some point and time that keeping our focus on God will allow a smooth transition through any crisis. Our walk with Christ should give us a true sense of security and allow us to be the person God created us to be. I love how the author gives step-by-step advice on how to overcome some strongholds. The key is trust and obedience to Christ. Allow the spirit to lead along the right path. I personally benefited from the session on Casting Our Anxieties on Christ. This is definitely good advice. At some point in time in our lives, anxiety has a tendency to invade our minds. However, we have the power to overcome it and change our focus. What a great book.
bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great workbook for renewing your mindOctober 5, 2014bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book is the fourth in a series of studies with the goal of helping Christians become more like Christ. Each book is aimed at addressing a hurdle Christians encounter in their spiritual walk. This study concentrates on tearing down mental strongholds, allowing Christi to rule in our hearts, being led by the Spirit, living under grace, and overcoming anger, depression and loss.
The book is divided into six sessions. Each session contains five chapters for daily study. Each daily study has a key point, a key verse, a little over a page of teaching, questions to answer, and a relevant quote from a church father. There are tips at the back of the book for group leaders.
The teaching sections in the book are well thought out, clear, and very practical. For each session, Anderson takes us through all that is necessary to renew our minds. He helps us to not just think about Scripture but to think scripturally, to see life from God's perspective.
One aspect of the study I especially appreciated and found very helpful was the teaching on the distinction between godly goals and godly desires. We may think we have a godly goal, but when its fulfillment depends on other people, it is really a godly desire, not a goal. I'm a goal maker and now I understand some of the frustration I have been feeling.
Anderson believes that many problems Christians have, such as some forms of mental depression, stem from false perceptions of yourself, your circumstances, and your future. These false perceptions can only be overcome as you are transformed by the renewing of your mind and by choosing to believe the truth. (152) This book will definitely help you identify the areas of false perceptions and give you the tools to move to biblical thinking. While this book can be used on a personal basis, I would suggest going through the book with a trusted friend or small group. The support of another would be very valuable in this process.
Working through this book, I think, will just be the beginning of the process of renewing your mind. As Anderson outlines near the end of the book, you have to be committed to this transforming process. If you are willing to work at renewing your mind, this study is a great resource. If you are a new Christian, you may want to go through studies one through three first.
I received a complimentary copy of this study from the publisher for the purpose of an independent and honest review.
