Kris draws on Owens in an easy to follow literary style. The questions at the end of each chapter make the book suitable for daily or semi-daily devotion. In fact the real impact of the book is in putting the ideas into practice. This requires the work of God in the heart through prayer and scripture. Kris is helpful in leading us to this work of faith in our lives.
The book spends much time dealing with the enemy, so it would be of benifit to read quickly through the book in one or two sittings to get a feel for where all of this talk about the flesh is leading in terms of Christ the victor. Otherwise you might find yourslef talking for weeks about sin is this and sin is this and what are we supposed to do about it anyway?... -chip
Lundgaard has done a great job in bringing such deep teaching on sin into the present day. Here is strong meat as easy to digest as milk. The literary illustrations may be a bit over the pond at times, but they are very effective.
The book is enhanced by questions for study and meditation following every chapter. Probably the best book I have read on what sin is and how it is to be defeated. It is more than thoughts, words or deeds. It is man's alienation from the God who is there. Its origin is from man's beginning. It affects all of life. It can be defeated only in Christ.
Read this book, then try Owen himself.
Not only is this book very readable, it is also very challenging. As I read about the ongoing fight with sin and the tactics it uses I felt as if I myself were the case study under the microscope. I was ashamed at how easily I had given in to the continuing assaults of sin in my life up to now, and galvanised to take the fight to my sin in the future.
I suspect that far too many Christians know far too little about the powerful hold sin continues to have on their life - and failing to know their enemy they spectacularly fail to fight it. It is time we educated ourselves about our own deceitful hearts, and got busy fighting them. I wholeheartedly recommend this book as a thoughtful, thoroughly biblical, and highly perceptive call to arms in the fight against the enemy within.
Would be a good basis for group or private study.
I read it quickly through and plan to return to it frequently.
