There are surprisingly few books on the subject of dealing with temptation. This volume aims to help us recognize how we are tempted, to explore why we so often choose not to do what we know is the right thing and to encourage us to make positive choices. The many real-life stories and anecdotes are underpinned by frequent references to Jesus' experience of coping with temptation. What does it really mean to say he was 'tempted in every way as we are'? How can we learn from him so we are better equipped to handle the temptations that come our way? To discover more, we look in turn at pairs of topics: lies & truth, worry & trust, pride & humility, money & contentment, power & service, violence & peace, sexual license & sexual fidelity, blame & forgiveness, giving up & endurance.
"'This is a very helpful book, easy to read, yet profound and thought-provoking. Divided into two sections, the author explores theology and provides practical ideas that he has practiced at home and in his professional life. His exploration of 'the Family God', 'God in Famiily' and 'God's Family People' provide excellent material for use in any culture.' Lausanne Committee for World Evangelization"
