Item description for Winning the War Within (Walker Large Print Books) by Charles F. Stanley...
A few moments of illicit pleasure, a few dollars of illegal gain - what can it hurt? The aftermath of our pleasures and gains can wreak spiritual havoc when those indictments are bought at the cost of wrongdoing. In Winning the War Within, Dr. Stanley examines temptation from a biblical perspective and tracks its course from desire to sin to death. He clarifies the distinction between a test or a trial (which may come from God), and a temptation (which never comes from God) and explains God's solutions for coping with the trials and for triumphing over temptations.

Charles Stanley's Winning The War Within May 14, 2007
Great Christian book by renown author, Charles Stanley. Great seller.
Great! May 7, 2007
I was introduced to this book at a men's conference. Couldn't put the book down. Pastor Stanley has many interesting ways of looking at the trials we face. I wish I had the strength to get through them all!
You must have this book Dec 11, 2005
Another reviewer said this book is valuable to anyone having problem with sin. One of the points this book makes evident is, that includes every human being. The book is not just about the traditional temptations of sex, alcohol, etc, but also losing your temper, being self sufficient, etc...I really believe this book can speak to anyone if read thoughtfully. It is an essential primer to any Christian wanting to know what sin and temptation are, how they originated, what forms they take, why it is important to battle, and how to accept the victory of Jesus Christ.
Another Great One by Dr. Stanley! Jun 25, 2004
Once again, Dr. Stanley has written another excellent text, this one focusing on temptation.
Among the important points covered in the book include:
1. Reasons to take sin seriously. 2. God wants to develop our character. 3. Ways people shift blame for giving in to temptation. 4. God does not want us to live an anxiety-ridden life. 5. God will provide an escape route from temptation. 6. When faced with a situation, consider your past experiences, present state of mind, and future plans/goals/dreams. 7. The devil is often subtle. 8. Accountability is important in overcoming temptation.
Read and be encouraged to be strong in the Lord!

Charles Stanley accomplishes what he set out to do in this book. This is a very good tool if you are having problems with sin in your life. If you are human, chances are that you ARE having problems with sin. He gives you the tools and resources needed in overcoming sin. All you have to do is apply these biblical principles. Nothing exceptionally grand about the way he wrote the book. He gives some good illustrations, though. Mostly get-to-the-point information.
