So how are we doing on those New Year’s resolutions? Still at the gym? Still avoiding that one particular bad habit? This is the season we typically take to evaluate ourselves and see what changes need to take place in our lives. In doing so we may resolve to break certain habits we’ve been meaning to do for years. Usually by now we’ve realized simply resolving to do something often times is not enough.
Today’s free e-book is from Erwin Lutzer, the pastor of the historic Moody church in Chicago. The book was originally entitled, How to Say No to A Stubborn Habit. I read that version back in college after hearing from several classmates how this book changed their lives.
Here’s the product description:
Everyone is familiar with the cycle: We decide to break a bad habit once and for all. We may even experience some short-term success. Yet almost inevitably, we fall back into that undesirable behavior and the frustrating process starts all over again. The experience can leave us feeling powerless to make changes in our lives.
Popular author and pastor Erwin Lutzer believes it is possible to break the cycle of addictive behavior. Filled with biblical insight, Getting to No: How to Break a Stubborn Habit takes an honest look at the temptations lying beneath the surface of every bad habit. Lutzer examines tough issues—such as why temptation exists, what purpose it serves in our lives, and what happens when we fail again—and provides practical tools that will help you find freedom from bad habits for good.
