Addicted to Sin
Tell me your deepest, darkest secrets. I dare you. Addiction comes down to one simple, primitive concept. Desire. My name is Dr. Dixon Matthews, and I'm New York's finest shrink.

Addicted to Sin 2
" Once you push open a revolving door, it seems to never stop, and stepping in is always easier than getting out. " Last year Sinaiyah Lockhart learned a valuable lesson: protect yourself, because no one else will. She had her guard up and was still vulnerable, which was a recipe for disaster. Now, it's all about getting better and loving herself, even when her first love, Landon Jones, wants to love on her the most. Landon emerges back into Sinaiyah's life after a decade, and has no intention of letting her go. Should Sinaiyah lock her heart and throw away the key, or chose to love and be free? And, what's the cost of her freedom? Courtland Biggs finds himself stuck as he tries to love Sinaiyah from a distance, when she's the only one who has his heart. Tension rises for him as he tries to venture into new business avenues and a new love interest. Will Courtland find what he's looking for in other women or find himself caught up in another rapture? In part two of the Sin series, A Taste of Sin, Sinaiyah and Courtland struggle to find a balance in their own lives. Even though their separation may be contributing to their dysfunction.
Other Side of Sin The
Offers a fresh viewpoint in Christian thought by looking at sin from the perspective of the sinned-against rather than that of the sinner needing forgiveness.
Is addiction a disease, a sin, a sign of hypersensitivity, a personal failing, or a unique resource for the creative mind? However it is defined, addiction can have devastating consequences, often shattering lives, sundering families, causing impoverishment, and even triggering suicide. Yet it can also be a source of inspiration. In these frank essays, leading American and Canadian writers explore their surprisingly diverse personal experiences with this complex phenomenon, candidly recounting what happened when alcohol, heroin, smoking, food, gambling, or sex -- sometimes in combination -- took over their lives.
In Sin: Radical Evil in Soul and Society, Ted Peters boldly revisits the dark side of human nature and the perennial categories of sin that have been glossed over by our pluralistic culture. Using numerous illustrations from everyday life as well as the social sciences, Peters examines the kinds of evil--both personal and societal--that we all confront on a daily basis. Writing with the goal to both educate and inspire, Peters offers serious theological reflection on sin in a popular style, provides an up-to-date examination of Satanism, and introduces a provocative new theory about how sin works in daily life. An illuminating guide for the educated reader, regardless of field or walk of life, this compelling book forces everyone to ask the question "Am I a sinner?" while it simultaneously provides the gentle and much-needed reminder that God's grace is available to all who answer in the affirmative.

Healing the Wounds of Sexual Addiction
“Mark has eloquently unraveled the mystery behind addictive behavior: when our relationships are not alive and growing, the temptation for various kinds of addictions is unleashed..”—Dr. Gary Smalley With today’s rampant availability of Internet pornography, sexual addiction has become a national epidemic that affects up to 10 percent of Christians. As devastating as any drug habit, it brings heartbreak and despair to those it entangles. But there is help for men and women caught in sexual addiction’s downward spiral. This book offers a path that leads beyond compulsive thoughts and behaviors to healing and transformation. Sensitive to the shame of sexual addiction without minimizing its sinfulness, Dr. Mark Laaser traces the roots of the problem, discusses its patterns and impact, and maps out a biblical approach to self-control and sexual integrity. Previously titled Faithful and True, this revision includes an all-new section that deals with sexual addiction in the church. Other important changes reflect cultural trends, incorporate current research, and place a greater emphasis on spiritual growth. This book also addresses the unique needs and issues of female sex addicts. Whether you know someone with a sexual addiction or struggle yourself, Healing the Wounds of Sexual Addiction points the way to understanding, wholeness, and holiness.
