Will we worship our own desires or will we worship the true God? With this lens the author discovers far more in Scripture on addictions than passages on drunkenness. There we learn the addicts true condition: like guests at a banquet thrown by the woman Folly, he is already in the grave (Proverbs 9:13-18). Can we not escape our addictions? If were willing to follow Jesus, the author says that we have immense hope: hope in Gods forgiving grace, hope in Gods love that is faithful even when we are not, and hope that God can give power so that we are no longer mastered by the addiction. Each chapter concludes with Practical Theology, As Your Face Your Own Addictions, and As You Help Someone Else.
