Does Christianity have an answer for addiction? As longtime pastor Mike Quarles's alcoholism worsened over eight years, churches and Christians referred him to treatment, 12-Step programs, therapy...nothing worked. Steve McVey, also a pastor, repeatedly dished out the same advice Mike received, with similarly poor results...

...Until, in their frustration, God led them back to basic, addiction-breaking truths of His Word. The authors explain these for readers who want to help someone or who struggle themselves, because freedom from addiction is found only when Christians

  • fully believe what God says about their identity
  • move beyond the 12-Step concept of inescapable "addict identity"
  • stop harboring unforgiveness, get radically right with God, and dwell in who they are in Christ, which excludes engaging in addictive behaviors as a lifestyle

Material on codependency is included, as is information on implementing recovery/support groups for those leaving addiction and starting to live in God's glorious freedom.
