Don’t let the title turn you off because this book is full of comfort and encouragement for beginning or older followers of Jesus Christ. Basing his writing on results of a Barna survey Todd Hunter discusses common sins faced by Christians (and non-believers, too.) He especially deals with anxiety, procrastination, over-eating, media addictions and laziness.
He shows that our innermost desires lead us into temptation if they are not given to God for control. The long-term result of giving in to temptation is disaster.
Hunter, an Anglican bishop, gives us beautiful, powerful prayers from ancient liturgies as one remedy for dealing with our disordered desires. He also discusses baptism, communion (he calls it Eucharist), Bible study, prayer and Christian fellowship. He suggests these disciplines as a means toward eventual victory over our desires that mess up our lives in ways we really don’t want.
Clearly written and applicable, Our Favorite Sins could become your favorite book. The volume makes a helpful gift, too.
