    Temptation Jay E Adams Book Summary: Christians are commanded to

    Temptation Jay E Adams Book Summary: Christians are commanded to grow.
    Once we are saved, spiritual fruit should be a natural byproduct. If the
    fruit isn't there, the growth we are supposed to display is not
    happening. Yet many Christians find it difficult to bear fruit because
    their branches are weak -- the old patterns of sin and bad habits creep
    back in and choke off the growth that should be taking place. So what do
    you do when your spiritual fruit isn't what it should be? You do what
    you would with the fruit of any type of tree: free it from what inhibits
    its growth by finding weak branches and cutting them off. Here, Jay
    Adams unpacks the teaching of Jesus in Matthew 5 and shows us how to use
    the principle of radical amputation to develop spiritual fruit, putting
    on holy patterns of living by putting off our sinful ones. The Resources
    for Biblical Living booklet series addresses a wide range of practical
    life issues in a straightforward, down-to-earth, and most of all,
    biblical manner. Review: I found this to be a booklet that was easy to
    read, well written and informative. In this world of the church in the
    US struggling with historic Christianity it was refreshing to read how
    to deal with the temptations of this world. I found the examples and the
    ideas to be plain and blunt with little room for confusion. I enjoyed
    the variety of examples and how it was nonjudgmental in its approach.
    The idea that we will never cease to be sinners but can move toward the
    Light of the World a most helpful idea to hold onto. I would like to
    thank Net Galley and P & R Publishing for allowing me to read and
    review this book in return for a free copy and I was never asked to
    write a favorable review by anyone.
