How many of us have had an experience where we know we need to do one thing, but end up foolishly doing exactly the opposite? Or similarly, not done the right thing at the right time?

This book provides an analysis of why all people behave in this way.

In short, the author claims that disordered desire leads us to poor behavior. If we reorient our desires appropriately, it becomes more natural to do the right thing.

This conclusion is based upon the findings of a comprehensive survey by the Barna G

Our Favorite Sins is the sinner's guide to beating temptation using practical bible-based tools. Anglican bishop and founding pastor of Holy Trinity Anglican Church, Todd D. Hunter, uses his 30+ years of experience to teach valuable skills for decreasing daily temptation, as well as for prioritizing whats really important in life.


Let's face it, we are all guilty of something. We have all been tempted in some way or another, and many of us choose to break God's rules; knowing

“Loving Desire, Desiring Love” a review of Our Favorite Sins - The Sins We Commit & How You Can Quit by Todd D. Hunter

by Seth Forwood

Our Favorite Sins is the newest book from former Vineyard pastor now Anglican bishop, Todd Hunter. Hunter’s past in evangelicalism and high church conversion provide a good picture of what one should expect from his book on temptation - an evangelical heart with t
"The first decision you need to make as you put down this book is this: What do I really love? The second goes with it: What will I kick to the curb?"

And Todd D Hunter, Founding Pastor and Bishop of Holy Trinity Anglican Church in Costa Mesa, California, encourages us to kick temptation to the curb and purse a wholehearted love of God in its place as he outlines some very practical yet historic ways of dealing with temptation.

Writing in a caring but honest style, Hunter takes recent research fro

The subtitle “The Sins We Commit & How You Can Quit” tells us both what we do not want to talk about as well as what we have all given thought to often. It’s uncomfortable to think about the sins that we not only commit, but actually fail in regularly. Fortunately, since Mr. Hunter stirs up such subjects for us to face, he goes on to tackle what we should do to overcome these temptations that follow us all through our lives.

In launching into his subject, Mr. Hunter admits the battle that we
Okay sinners, here is a book for you. Todd D. Hunter, author, Anglican bishop, adjunct professor, and authority on sin has written a helpful book on dealing with the problem of temptation (or dealing with the problem of ‘not dealing with temptation).

What makes this book so good is Hunter eschews strategies for handling sin that don’t go to the root of the problem. He isn’t interested in simply helping you modify your behavior; rather he want you to do the hard inner work of looking at where your

“Our Favorite Sins” attempts to address the issue of temptation and to offer suggestions as to why our current methods of fighting against temptation have not prevailed. Hunter opens the book with findings from a Barna group study and uses the anecdotal stories of individuals such as Lazy Larry and Eating Eddie to illustrate qualities we might identify within ourselves. While the book begins rather slowly and the anecdotal stories offer little practicality in fighting temptation, the second half ...more

At first I didn't enjoy it but after a while, began to understand the author's true intent. Once done, it opened me up to experience the book on another level. Changed my spiritual perspective on many things...especially in understanding why we continue to do that which we do not want to do...selfishness and disordered desires. A good read. Plan to go back and review over and over again.
Endorsements by John Ortberg, Margaret Feinberg, and Bill Hybels, also a forward by Dallas Willard inspired me to purchase this book. A great read!
