Publisher's Description

Temptation isn’t merely about winning or losing a battle.
It’s about discovering who you truly are.
And what matters most.

 
On a daily basis, we are all tempted to enjoy the gifts of this world while making the Giver optional or irrelevant in our quest for life. But what if, in God’s purposes, temptation is not merely an obstacle to overcome but an opportunity to flourish in faith?
 
Living in the truth exposes lies and turns moments of temptation into character-shaping opportunities, powerfully displaying our true identity as followers of Jesus.

    Tim Chaddicks approach is very practical and very real. Humans have the tendency to think about temptation in the extremes of socially unacceptable sins, such as murder, but tend to balk at harboring anger at another in their hearts. Chaddick gets to the root of this thinking by exposing the lies that we tell ourselves about temptation. Temptation is an area in the Christian life in which everyone wants to be free from it until we actually start to face the implications of such a life. Because of my tendency to fall into sin, I once had a friend tell me after putting a block on my computer to my stern objection, What price are you willing to pay for righteousness? That is the implication of this book. A righteous life cannot be pursued without some sort of a trade-off. Chaddick also demonstrates that battling temptation is not so much a matter of will as it is a matter of surrendering to Gods grace day after day. Temptation is not a sin; giving into it is. But for those who battle against that urge to give in, they will draw strength from the Holy Spirit to continue to defeat the flesh one day at a time. If you truly desire to battle against the flesh, read this book and join the battle with the millions who have gone before and share in the victory. I received this book as a part of a reviewing program from christianaudio in exchange for an honest review.

    "The Truth about Lies" is a Christian living book. It's short but packed full of life-changing truth. Ever wonder why God allows temptation? This book showed how God uses temptation to expose what we desire the most and to build our trust relationship with Him. The author examined the temptation of Jesus in the wilderness, His trial before the Sanhedrin, and more to show the lies with which Satan tempts us. He also pointed out the truth that was applied to each temptation or that can be learned from it. He also explained how to succeed when faced with temptation, and how we need to look at the root issues behind why we give in to certain temptations.

    Basically, this book is about getting the correct, biblical view of temptation. This is a great, foundational book for any Christian, but I'd especially recommend it to those who are feeling discouraged regarding temptation.

    I received an ebook review copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley.
