How does the Old Testament connect to the experience of addiction? In this audio talk, Winston Smith dives into the Old Testament to find the addict’s experience of slavery and groaning there. He examines several biblical stories that illustrate not only the bondage, but also the hope, grace, and love of God for his people. Smith offers a framework to understand Old Testament passages with an eye not only for the suffering it describes, but also for the hope it presents. He concludes with practical applications for the counselor.
