Item description for Winning The War Within (Charles Stanley Discipleship) by Charles F. Stanley...
Overview 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.Previously published in hardcover (0-8407-9036-8).
A few moments of pleasure, a few dollars to gain―what can it hurt?
In "Winning the War Within," Dr. Charles Stanley talks about temptation, the enticements that trip us up, the protections God provides to help us stay clear of Satan's traps, and the escape route God makes available if we go too far.
"Winning the War Within" is a Bible-based examination of relevant questions: What's the problem? Who's to blame? How can we defend ourselves? How can we escape? What happens if we fall?
Clarifying the distinction between a test or trial―which may come from God―and a temptation―which never comes from God, Dr. Stanley explains God's solutions for coping with trials, triumphing over temptations, and recognizing the diffrence.
"As long as you are on this earth in its present condition, you will be faced with temptation. The more "spiritual" you become, the more of a target you become. As your spiritual maturity and responsiblility increase, so must your sensitivity to and dependence on the Holy Spirit." ―Charles Stanley

Reviews - What do customers think about Winning The War Within?
You must have this book Dec 10, 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 24, 2004

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.
Nothing is more neccessary, nothing more urgent! Jul 28, 1999
Our constant war within. To conquer sin is our relentless pursuit, this book makes that process more attainable. I recommend you to first read HOW TO LISTEN TO GOD, then continue with this one. Learn to hear GOD, then enter the war within, and live a truly victorious life!
