Description

Today, people are able to engage in choice in almost every aspect of their lives - 'choice' is good; we look up to people who pursue their personal goals. The worship of choice enables people to pursue individual self-fulfilment as the main motivating force in their lives. Resisting temptation is not on the agenda.

The fallout in society is a higher level of crime, a lower standard of 'morality', abandonment of ethics at work and an increase in litigation, because failure in our lives must mean 'it's someone else's fault'. The church is also infiltrated - failing to resist temptation has led us to increasing divorce levels, scandal, and internal strife.

Colin Peckham's book is a practical guide to resisting temptation. We discover how temptation works, what places and times to avoid putting yourself into the 'danger zone', and how to escape, both practically and spiritually. He also supplies scriptures to meditate on to defend ourselves in future.
