A worship disorder. This is how Ed views addictions. “Will we worship our own desires or will we worship the true God?” With this lens, Ed discovers far more in Scripture on addictions than passages on drunkenness. There we learn the addict’s true condition: like guests at a banquet thrown by “the woman Folly,” he is already in the grave (Proverbs 9:13-18). Can we not escape our addictions? If we’re willing to follow Jesus, Ed says that we have “immense hope: hope in God’s forgiving grace, hope in God’s love that is faithful even when we are not, and hope that God can give power so that we are no longer mastered by the addiction.” Each chapter concludes with “Practical Theology,” “As Your Face Your Own Addictions,” and “As You Help Someone Else.”
