Item description for Life's Healing Choices: Freedom from Your Hurts, Hang-Ups, and Habits by John Baker & Rick Warren...

A guide based on the Beatitudes of Jesus identifies eight choice-based strategies for healing and promoting personal happiness, in a resource that shares inspirational stories about people who have overcome the pain of past difficulties through their faith. 65,000 first printing.

Publishers Description

"Happiness" and "Healing" are yours for the choosing.
We've all been hurt by other people, we've hurt ourselves, and we've hurt others. And as a result, every single one of us ends up with some sort of "hurt," "hang-up," or "habit." But the question we all face is, "Where do we go from here?"
"Life's Healing Choices" offers freedom from our hurts, hang-ups, and habits through eight healing choices that promise true happiness and life transformation. Using the Beatitudes of Jesus as a foundation, Senior Pastor Rick Warren of Saddleback Church and John Baker, who is also a pastor at Saddleback, developed the eight choices shared in this book.
In addition to practical, encouraging biblical teaching, each chapter includes two real-life stories of men and women whose lives have been transformed by living out the eight choices in this book. Through making each of these choices, you too will find God's pathway to wholeness, growth, spiritual maturity, happiness, and healing. You'll find real answers, real hope, and a real "future" -- one healing choice at a time.

From Publishers Weekly
A pastor of the same Saddleback Church that's famous for bestselling author Rick Warren (who provides the foreword), Baker designs an eight-step Christian recovery program geared toward enjoying spiritual freedom from hurts, hangups and bad habits. Baker's book is based on Warren's sermon series Road to Recovery, which has been tested in the lives of more than 400,000 people in 10,000 churches. Baker's eight steps to spiritual freedom (admitting need, getting help, letting go, coming clean, making changes, repairing relationships, maintaining momentum and recycling pain) promise to help Christians overcome many kinds of addictive behaviors. Baker likens them to AA's 12-step program, but clarifies that Christ is the source of lasting change. He writes that as believers refuse to admit their powerlessness to overcome tendencies to do wrong, their lives are fraught with fear, frustration, fatigue and failure. The cure? Admitting weakness with a humble heart; then praying, writing and sharing with others about the problem. Each chapter includes moving narratives of participants in Baker's program who express how its principles changed their lives. These practical, pithy how-tos will galvanize Christians into action with the simplicity of Baker's easy-to-actualize plan. Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

Reviews - What do customers think about Lifes Healing Choices?

Good analysis, good advice  Feb 10, 2010
The author describes well the situations that keep us down and separated from God. I appreciate the urging us to get with community for support we need.
Life Changing Book  Jan 25, 2010
This book is awesome! I would recommend it to anyone who is searching to fill an emptiness in his live or who needs to be healed. It is life changing. Through the power of Jesus Christ, this book has helped transform my life and I am so very thankful that I was led to read it.
Valuable Roadmap to Healing  Jan 23, 2010
Our Sunday School class is studying this wonderful guide as our current curriculum. One of our class members said it best, "This leaves us feeling raw." John Baker forces us to look deep inside ourselves and to assume responsibility for our part in our hurting and brokenness. In a loving, non-judgemental manner, he does not allow us to deny or hide from our transgressions. He challenges us to be open and honest with ourselves. Beautifully balanced, beautifully written. Thank you!
Life's lessons  Dec 19, 2009
I sent this to granddaughter also, I will be teaching this book for 8 weeks to a group of women. I wanted to share this experience with my granddaughter who is far away.
Life Changing!  Oct 23, 2009
I am a member of Celebrate Recovery and we have been watching the videos and listening to the CD's of this series. This book goes much more indepth. So far I have only worked through the second chapter, but already I am feeling the impact of this life changing message. John Baker writes from his heart and his own personal experience in a very lovable and easy to understand fashion. It's so encouraging to know I am not alone on my journey of recovery! There's very emotional testimonies from people who have experienced a lot of pain from others and self inflicted pain that have found healing as a result of working through the 8 principles. I highly recommend this book if you are ready to make the choice to look at your issues and start on the road to healing.
This book would be the equivalent to AA's "Big Book" only in Celebrate Recovery we know our Higher Power is Jesus Christ! There is no true healing without Christ. He is the Great Physician and Counselor!
