What Does the Bible Teach about Lust?: A Short Book on Desire HBBy: Gavin Peacock, Owen Strachan
|Publisher||Christian Focus Publications|
Lust is a problem. A big problem. Our sexualised culture, promising freedom and pleasure, is creating a terrible cocktail of abuse, pain, despair, and suffering. The problem is not simply our actions, but our sinful desires. But there is hope. Christ is more powerful than any lustful desire, any temptation. He has defeated death and sin, and his way leads to true freedom.
