Addictions: A Banquet in the Grave (Welch)

SKU 9780875526065


Addiction is a worship disorder. Will we worship ourselves and our own desires, or will we worship the true God?


Scripture reveals addicts' true condition: like guests at a banquet thrown by "the woman Folly," they are already in the grave. (Prov. 9:13–18) Can we not escape our addictions?


Ed Welch shows us that when we are following Jesus we have "immense hope that God can give power so that we are no longer mastered by the addiction."

  • By emphasizing the role of the heart in the worship of self and substance, Welch forces the addict to face the grim reality that who or what he worships will control his life.As a pastor, biblical counselor, and a redeemed (not recovering) ex-heroin addict, I believe Dr. Welch has finally given every pastor, theologian, layman, and anyone caught in the bondage of idolatry/addiction a biblical road map to true and lasting freedom.--Peter Garich, Pastor of New Hope Christian Fellowship, and Director of Dayspring Center for Biblical Counseling in San Diego, California
