Book Review

Journal of Biblical Counseling 32:3

This book is about the kind of fight we are in with sin. It specifically addresses how “little” sins such as gossip and laziness infiltrate our souls and are often the hardest to shake. And, most importantly, it’s about the hands-on mercies of Jesus and how he helps us run the race with joy and hope. Powlison reflects on one of the book’s case studies, a woman who is beaten down by self-condemnation and guilt, and offers some thoughts about how God’s varied commands actually work.
