Overview

Charles Stanley's Bible-based answers to the most difficult life questions have touched millions through his bestselling books and nationwide TV and radio broadcasts, earning him recognition as one of the most respected pastors in America. He guides his readers through their most personal struggles in this collection of three bestselling works.
 
Winning the War Within clarifies the distinction between a test and a trial (which may come from God) and a temptation (which never comes from God), and explains God's solutions for coping with trials, for triumphing over temptations, and for recognizing the difference. Reviewing your life with a series of relevant questions—What's the problem? Who's to blame? How can I defend myself? What happens if I fall?—leads to an honest discussion of the struggles we all face every day. Writing from a solid background in Bible teaching, Stanley talks about temptation, the enticements that trip us up, the protection God provides us, and the escape route God makes available if we go too far.
 
From the battle within ourselves, Stanley then addresses the trouble we face from the outside world in How to Handle Adversity.
 
When hard times comes—job lost, a friend's divorce, a sister's illness, a parent's death—our first response is usually to ask why. Yet Charles Stanley contends, "The real question each of us needs to ask is, 'How should I respond?'" He gives practical guidelines to help you move through adversity and discover God's will in each situation, showing how He wants to develop your potential and demonstrate His faithfulness to you. Learn to grow through your pain and discover the lessons that God can teach you in adversity.
 
Finally, Stanley discusses the crucial need of forgiveness in our lives for us to truly feel at peace with ourselves and others. If you lose your temper over little things that happened in the past, or find yourself hating the ones you should love the most, you may suffer with an unforgiving—and unforgiven—spirit. To ask for forgiveness is to accept peace, and The Gift of Forgiveness shows what a difference it can make in your life—and what happens when you try to live without it.
