Read this book when I had some free time. Finished it over my personal retreat. It was semi-helpful. I don't agree with the author's premise (i.e. We will never get rid of the sin nature; we will ALWAYS deal with lust and the propensity to sin, or what he calls "the dragon inside of us."), but he had some good things to say. He also interprets Romans 7:14-25 as a regenerated person. Hence, his interpretation. I disagree mostly with Him, but I thought it would be good to check out since I'm marri ...more
There are better books out there on this topic.

Honest and helpful. Explicit at times, meant for married men. Prefer over Every Man's Battle on topic.

“يعتقد الكثيرون أن قصّة شمشون تنتهي نهاية مأساوية, لكني لا أراها كذلك. فبرغم أنه أصبح كفيفاً وسجيناً إلا أن شعر رأسه بدأ ينمو من جديد. عفا الرب عن شمشون واستخدمه للمرة الأخيرة. هدم البطل معبد الفلسطينيين فقتل نفسه مع أعدائه. أدرك شمشون بوضوح ما ينبغي على كل إنسان أن يعرفه: أن ربّنا هو رب الفرصة الثانية والثالثة والرابعة هو الربّ الذي لا ييأس منك أبداً” 0 likes
