Overview

It's a constant struggle, familiar to everyone--a habit that they hate but just can't seem to beat. And for most people, it's the "acceptable" sins that put up the biggest fight. Gossip. Complaining.

Bestselling authors Sherrer and Garlock intersperse Scripture with stories of real people who have struggled with the same things and overcome, giving readers both the tools and the confidence to change. The straightforward yet compassionate approach will speak to anyone--pastors, counselors, and laypeople.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Sherrer and Garlock, longtime collaborators and time-tested speakers/teachers, address how to stop doing the things we hate, those bad habits that threaten to overcome us. The best step, they say, "is simply to admit our need to change, then to rely on God's help to follow through." The pair touch on key bad habits such as feeling inferior, worrying, addictive behaviors and controlling and manipulating, as well as less obvious "habits" such as maintaining an impure heart and leading an unbalanced life. Readers will find an easy entrée into the world of bad habits and lots of true but easier-said-than-done advice such as "Work to resolve conflicts with other people" and "Whatever the source of your fear, you can find freedom through faith in the Word of God." The book is fine as a cursory look at overcoming bad habits, but those doing the deep work of life change will need to look elsewhere. (Mar.)
