Back to the Bible Leaders Reveal a Proven Strategy for Overcoming Temptation

Many Christians are feeling guilty, discouraged, and even hopeless. Their faith means a lot to them, but they repeatedly succumb to temptation. Building on the message of Unstuck, Cole and Ross give readers a path to break free from what holds them back, make lasting changes, and win the age-old battle with temptation.

This book is part of a strategic ministry plan developed by Back to the Bible. Through multimedia products and services, the ministry walks alongside individuals and churches, helping Christ-followers live the life God wants them to have.

    This book was encouraging to me. Numerous times throughout reading it, I said to myself, "Wait! I'm not the only one?!"

    I liked how the authors took a deep, close-up look at the most common tempations that men or women face. They shared some good ideas for standing against temptation. I would've liked for them to maybe dig a little deeper into their subject matter, but the material was still good.

    I would particularly recommend this book for someone who is a new Christian.

    Thank you to Bethany House Publishers for sending me a free copy of Tempted, Tested, True in exchange for this honest review.

    When Tempted, Tested, True by Arnie Cole and Michael Ross arrived for review, I was instantly intrigued by the notion that we all probably share a similair struggle with some form of temptation.

    Normally, the idea of temptation is set with a larger score of notions, such as cheating, stealing, perhaps even an addiction. What captivated me most of all is that temptation can be as innocent as a thought - yet plaque us in the biggest form of guilt. This book? It's a bountiful cover to cover absolute gem of a novel to take those moments of temptation from thoughts to actions to overcoming them with a common biblical basis. God will help you prevail - you just have to let him give you that opportunity and that freedom.

    Tempted, Tested, True is 10 chapters filled with projected and insightful paths tempations could lead you on, or perhaps you are/have experienced them yet might not know the resolutions. You will with this book! Not only do they cover many common forms of temptations, each chapter is filled with insightful prayer, words of wisdom from Christ centered experience, engaging 'nudges' in the form of a workbook space for personal writings and reflections. True to it's title, Mr. Cole and Mr. Ross give you those same topics in the form of the temptations, theories tested and the truth to set you free.

    Simply put: This book is a MUST HAVE! It's not a complicated read but intense enough to cover a multitude of thoughts and their consequences and their actions. It's profound enough that we can come away with the understanding that we as humans will make mistake - we are fallible. But God is still, and always will be, in control and as they beautifully state: "Learning to become God-centered is the first crucial step: Put God back in His rightful position - smack in the center of our lives."

    5 stars for Tempted, Tested, True. This book's richness, essential charts and graphs, and the amazing appendix filled with worksheets is simply top notch. This novel brings to light a topic many might shy away from but truly should embrace the wisdom and insight given by Cole and Ross. Given that we have a choice to wallow in fear of condemnation of guilt and shame, the best gift is to live in the glory that that freedom of letting it go that God will grant you!

    *As per my review: I received a copy of the book from Bethany House for the purpose of a book review. I was not compensation other than receipt of book to review and any/all parts of this review are my own. I was not required to write a positive review.

    A Proven Path to Overcoming Soul-Robbing Choices

    By

    Arnie Cole & Michael Ross

    Co-authored by popular writers Arnie Cole and Michael Ross, Tempted, Tested, True offers readers an organized guide to avoiding temptation and behaviors that sicken the soul. Real Life stories that chart lasting change illustrate the success of people who have used this system. The stories are the sort with which all readers can identify.

    In addition to the stories, the authors have a system that includes "gentle nudges" fortified by Scripture for readers to reflect on and to implement in their own lives. The nudges include:

    Nudge One: Learn to be God-centered

    Nudge Two: Pinpoint your weaknesses

    Nudge Three: Reconsider Holiness

    Nudge Four: Change you brain

    Nudge Five: Interrupt your heart

    Nudge Six: "Detach" attachments

    Nudge Seven: Surrender control

    Nudge Eight: Shake the shame

    Nudge Nine: Fall in Love Again

    Nudge Ten: Rethink church

    Each entry is divided into 1.) Tempted: Identifying soul-robbing traps. 2.) Tested: Learning how to break free and 3.) Charting a path toward lasting change. Readers will receive God's word in Scripture passages, reflecting on the verses to find God's personal message for each. Further steps include memorizing, listening to a friend, responding to God's nudges with music, charts and more. Last of all, learn to pray from the heart.

    This is a book to read slowly, over time. Readers must allow sufficient time to reflect on each message and use the steps to learn to apply the lessons. There is so much to absorb that readers will most likely need to take the lessons in small doses for maximum benefit.

    I was given a free copy of this book by Bethany House Publishers for the purpose of review. I recommend the book to adults and teenagers who sincerely want to learn to avoid temptation and grow stronger in their faith.

    I'm studying this book with a group from church and absolutely love it! The writing is excellent and will appeal to readers of all ages, and the advice is easy to understand. Authors Arnie Cole and Michael Ross promise a "path to overcoming soul-robbing choices" and deliver just that. The practical advice within these pages can be applied to any struggle.

    TEMPTED, TESTED, TRUE is based on survey research that examines the spiritual lives of more than 100,000 Christians—that's the "proven" part of this book. Yet each chapter is filled with real-life stories from fellow strugglers. And the best features of this book are the ten "Nudges" _ steps that can help us find lasting victory over temptation: (1) Learn to Be God-Centered, (2) Pinpoint Your Weaknesses, (3) Reconsider Holiness, (4) Change Your Brain, (5) Interrupt Your Heart, (6) "Detach" Attachments, (7) Surrender Control, (8) Shake the Shame, (9) Fall in Love Again, (10) Rethink Church.

    This book is perfect for individual or group study. Can't wait to read the authors' next book!
