Helping Others Overcome Addictions
Steve McVey & Mike Quarles
In this book, the authors explore the basic, addiction-breaking truths of God's Word and explain them for readers who want to help someone in addiction or who struggle themselves. Freedom from addiction is found only when Christians fully believe what God says about their identity, when they move beyond the 12-Step concept of inescapable “addict identity," when they stop harboring unforgiveness, and when they dwell in who they are in Christ.
Helping Your Troubled Teen
Drs. Cynthia Kaplan, Blaise Aguirre, & Michael Rater
Destructive trends among today's youth are growing, making life very different from when their parents were growing up. The primary four self-destructive behaviors in adolescence today are excessive alcohol and substance abuse, promiscuity, self mutilation, and eating disorders. These will be covered in detail, along with other issues like Internet addiction and suicide. These problems are not only detrimental to teens' mental and physical health, but the legal consequences for injurious behavior have also changed. Identification and prevention are the most important aspects in stopping teenage self-destructive behavior. This book offers a comprehensive look at teens self destructive behavior and gives parents solutions for dealing with it.
Prodigals and Those who Love Them
Ruth Bell Graham
Ruth knew about prodigals--two of her five children were spiritual wanderers. This book is a collection of readings one woman turned to for comfort when her children wandered from God. It shows how Graham's faith persevered and grew regardless of the outcome of her prodigals' stories.
Part One introduces readers to five prodigals who "returned to the father." Part Two offers comfort and encouragement through Scripture, poems, hymns, prayers, and more. Readers will be touched by the honest feelings of pain, frustration, and uncertainty Graham expresses so eloquently. And they will share in the lessons she learned about God's sovereignty and ultimate peace.
