Breaking the Spirit of Addiction
Xulon Press, 2007 - 126 pages
Breaking the Spirit of Addiction was inspired by the Holy Spirit to help people who are slaves to drug and other addictions. This book provides an in-depth look at how Jesus Christ offers complete and permanent deliverance from Satan's traps, as opposed to the constant recycling process in which many addicts find themselves just "going through the motions" of secular recovery programs. Additionally, this book helps addicts to clearly identify the strongholds they are dealing with, by providing practical biblically-based principles to overcome them. The author, Sam J. Jones, is Bishop of the Good News Fellowship of Churches in Birmingham Alabama. The Good News Fellowship is a mission sponsored by the Eastern Mennonite Missions of Salunga, PA. Long before he became Bishop, Jones worked successfully with hundreds drug addicts for over 17 years. Jones is the president and founder of Highways & Hedges Outreach Training Center, which began in Kankakee, Illinois, Milwaukee, Wisconsin and is now located in Birmingham, Alabama. He is a master trainer for the National Center for Fathering where he trains facilitators across the nation to facilitate classes to "return the fathers heart to their children." He is presently employed with the University of Alabama Birmingham as a project director of the Birmingham Fatherhood Initiative where he worked with over 250 fathers weekly who are struggling with some type of drug addiction.
What people are saying - Write a review
This book is excellent because it give addicts hope in breaking the addicted behavior. I recommend this book to anyone that is struggling with an addiction.
I think this is an excellent brief and simply written book that anyone can read. It gets to the core of problems not often mentioned or thought of. These core issues so often unaddressed are areas that continue to keep people in bondage and treatment programs will not address. Would like more indepth look at some of thes issues.
