Publishers Description It is a battle we must win This enemy threatens every believer's character and eternal destiny. It can undermine the purest intentions and thwart God's greatest plans. Now, in simple, but insightful language, this timely book warns of the pitfalls of pride, and presents the spiritual steps necessary to overcome it. Fashioned after Pilgrim's Progress and Dante's Divine Trilogy, this work is a poetic journey with multiple allegorical levels. Inspired by his own spiritual struggles, the author uses some subtle (and some not-so-subtle) images and metaphors to show how artful the deceptions of pride can be, how it can divide the church, how it can slowly devour our faith, how it can lead a believer astray, and how it can leave us exposed to temptations of the flesh. As this book illustrates, there is a way out of the confusing labyrinth of life's challenges. There is a Divine Guide who can lead us through the dark days into the light of re-birth, self-forgiveness, hope, happiness, and eternal joy. The book shows how faith is the path to happiness and joy, is the source of great confidence and strength, and is truly The Substance of Things Hoped For.
