Founder of Teen Challenge Shows How to Overcome Persistent Sins
This is David Wilkerson's capstone teaching, poured out from a heart that discovered the power God has given his people to triumph over sin. Through Wilkerson's expert ability to blend teaching with personal application, he shows that the key to defeating life-controlling habits is found in one thing: the new covenant God enacted with his people. In today's era of pop psychology, most Christians battle temptation and sin through self-help techniques or gritty self-will.
Even Wilkerson, through decades of ministry that led hundreds of thousands to salvation and deliverance, struggled to know true peace as he battled his own "besetting sins." Determined to find victory, Wilkerson came to grasp the stunning reality that the vast love of God provides the spiritual resources believers need to obey his every command. Gathered from some of his most prominent sermons, this is one of Wilkerson's most powerful teachings--one that will redeem countless lives into the life-giving experience of purity.
Cafe Lily's Review
I have always enjoyed listening to David Wilkerson's messages. His heart for the lost was evident and this book gives touching examples of just how loved and respected this pastor was. This book includes testimonies written by those, whose lives were changed by the message presented in this book.
Focusing on the finished work of the cross, Pastor Wilkerson reinforces that salvation and victorious living as Christians has nothing to do with us or "works". This book is a great reminder of what an incredible gift grace truly is. I enjoyed it very much and recommend it.
I received a free copy of this book from Chosen Books in exchange for an honest review.
