This book was so much more down to earth and understandable than the last book I read on the subject. It was a little slow and so that is why the 3 star rating. But he had some very cute and funny analogies. He likened sin with a hot stove. We are told not to touch the stove because it's hot. We are told not to sin because it will lead to anger and defiance and much more. Here are some excuses of touching a hot stove as are the most common excuses for sin:
I'm afraid if I take my hand off I won't be able to leave it off.
But I was born with the desire to touch the stove.
I want to be excommunicated so it won't hurt when I touch the stove.
It's not like it's totally wrong. It's a gray area.
Stove? What stove? I don't see any stove.
You can't go without touching the stove all the time.
At least it's just my hand and not my whole face.
There are others who touch it more than I do.
And many more. It was a sleeper at times but had very good words of wisdom and thoughts that were insightful.
