But for a significant and growing portion of the population, gambling isn't recreation--it's life. Many believe that Christians are unlikely to become enslaved by gambling. Yet research indicates that Christians are drawn to gambling at the same rate as others. In Turning the Tables on Gambling, you'll explore the answers to such questions such as: What is my risk of becoming addicted to gambling? Is playing the lottery or making a casual wager harmless?
