Community Description Victory over the flesh is within your grasp! You love the Lord-so why can't you gain lasting victory over that one recurring sin? You've prayed for help and tried everybody's 10-point plan, but you find yourself back on your knees, asking God to forgive you for doing the thing you said you'd never do again.
Are you going to live with this misery forever? No! says Christian physician Clark Gerhart. In this fascinating new perspective on our fallen human nature, Dr. Gerhart explains what lies behind strongholds and how sin uses the body's God-given systems to urge you to continue in these behaviors. He then shows how God's work of sanctification can lead you into victory and peace. No longer will you be a slave to the pressure that drives you to the old disobedience. No longer will the flesh keep you in wretched defeat. Once you are free of the sin that so easily entangles, you'll even be equipped to minister to those around you.

* Understand the surprising link between stubborn sin and your body's processes
* Discover the common root of every recurring sin and what to do about it
* Identify repeated patterns of behavior in your life as signs of control by the flesh

A True Help! Jan 25, 2006
Being in the ministry for many years I have read countless Christian self-help books, some are helpful, some are not. I will say from the top,"Say Goodbye To Stubborn Sin," is one of the finest I have ever read. Dr. Gerhart has dared in this work to go to the core of stubborn sin. You know the kind, you think you have it licked only to find it's ugly head popping up again and again. You are frustrated, embarrassed and at wits-end. You just don't know what to do anymore, nor where to turn. You feel like a failure to yourself, to those you love and worse of all to the one you serve, God. In this work, the author digs down to the root of these stubborn sins, our flesh, our physical self. The information he gives probably won't be 'flesh pleasing' to you, but it certainly will be an asset to 'sin ceasing.' A new twist on an old problem, revealing revelation that could well change your spiritual walk forever and finally giving you the freedom you have been longing for. I recommend this for all serious Christians that are seeking to walk in victory.
A truly annointed message! May 2, 2005
I thought my walk with Christ was pretty solid, until I read Dr. Gerhart's book. What an annointed message! The idea that we are responsible for our own actions seems like common sense, but our tendency to blame other causes, from peer pressure to Satan, often causes us to treat the symptoms of sin rather that rip out sin by its roots. Our fallen nature is the root, and, as Dr. Gerhart so succinctly puts it, our flesh is the physial manifestation of this root. By following Dr. Gerhart's methodology, I see my Christian faith reaching a whole new level. Thank you, Dr. Gerhart, for putting into words what I've known all along: It's me, and accepting that responsibility is the start to a whole new relationship with God.
Physiological secrets of the flesh exposed! Apr 18, 2005
This is an excellent book! It's a must read for every Christian! Finally, a book that perfectly combines human physiology with Christian spirituallity. It is astounding to realize how so much about our personalities that we thought was spiritual, is actually rooted deeply in our flesh. Dr. Gerhart reveals powerful truths that will change how you view yourself and the world around you. Find spiritual victory that LASTS!
Why we do what we don't want to do Apr 5, 2005
This is a great book that should be read by everyone, for we all have areas of our life we struggle with, some of them hidden from oursleves. And then we can't understand why life doesn't get better!
Although a bit long for my ADD mind, the concepts are essential in understanding why I do what I don't want to do, and overcoming habits & behavior that are harmful to me and interfere in my relationship with God. The only thing that I think would be more helpful is either a little review section at the end of each chapter, with some questions or possibly an abridged version that includes a study guide for personal use and small groups.
Finally, a concrete plan for defeating the power of sin! Feb 8, 2005
While reading this book, I constantly found myself saying two thing: "So that is why I can't stop that sinful habbit" and "So that's how I can stop it". After reading many books on fighting sin, I was convinced that there was nothing more I could do than simply pray, read the Bible more, and strengthen my will power. But this book changed all that, beginning with a fascinating description of the physical factors in our thinking patterns. This openned up for me a huge window of understanding on biblical teachings on the flesh and how healthy thinking patterns can actually be re-established in a concrete way that harnesses the influence of our physical make-up.
