Addressing a major public-health crisis, this book shows pastors how to create and foster the kind of environment that Jesus prescribed for his people, one that helps both those who struggle with addictions and those who love them resist and heal from brokenness.
This book provides a theologically rich commentary on the challenge of addiction and the long road to recovery. Written by a minister with extensive experience working with people who struggle with addictions, this book helps pastors understand the roots and realities of our universal human struggle with addictions and attachments while showing that together we have great hope for freedom, wholeness, and recovery. Readers will learn how to create and foster a Beatitude Community, the kind of environment Jesus prescribed for his people, to help addicts and those who love them heal from brokenness. Foreword by Bob Ekblad.
