REVIEW OF RELAPSE BY MARK SHAW (www.focuspublishing.com)
I am deeply impressed by the depth of Biblical application in Mark Shaw’s new book, “Relapse,” a workbook designed to help those fighting “addictions.” Mark makes it clear that he rejects the secular view of addiction as a disease and clearly lays out a positive, practical, and above all, a Biblical strategy for overcoming life-dominating habits.
I am excited to endorse this outstanding resource for those who have been trapped in destructive patterns of thinking and behavior. It will be a welcome addition to the medicine cabinet of the Biblical counselor who is dedicated to helping these hurting people. You will find the definitions, explanations and directions insightful, precise, and effective, since Mark draws them from fathomless library of God’s Word. I highly recommend this new work!
