    Natalie Vellacott

    I borrowed this from church. A short easy read dealing with topics chapter by chapter including depression, doubt, lust, homosexuality, image, pride and guilt. Ends with a chapter on keeping spiritually fresh. Each chapter begins with relatable Scripture sometimes quoted at length. Probably helpful for new believers but not especially deep...

    In this short and informative book, Vaughn Roberts takes his readers through 8 different challenges Christians may encounter on a daily basis: image, lust, guilt, doubt, depression, pride, homosexuality, and keeping fit. Of course, Roberts recognizes that there may be several other sins or struggles Christians may face, but these are 8 of the ones he personally has struggled in and experienced.

Of course, Roberts recognizes that there may be several other sins or struggles Christians may face, but these are 8 of the ones he personally has struggled in and experienced. Using contemporary experiences to match with Scripture, Roberts takes us through an overview of each topic providing helpful ways that we can combat these types of temptations. He is very quick to point out that things like doubt, depression, and SSA are common occurrences and we should not so much focus on our lack of faith as drawing into Christ for His wisdom and strength. A bit of a dry read at times, but overall fairly enjoyable and quick (I read it in transit on my holidays).

    The chaplain of Christ Church, Duesseldorf, Germany, recommended this book, and I am happy to have read it. Roberts does a fine job addressing temptations common to us all. He pulls no punches. We are called to holiness. This book is a good reminder of our high calling in Christ.

    This is a short and very readable book about some of the battles Christians go through. In each chapter, Rev. Roberts begins with a passage of scripture, and then relates it to a specific type of battle common to Christians (image, lust, guilt, doubt, depression, pride, homosexuality). In doing so, he writes understanding how Christians are tempted and and often fail. However, he also encourages Christians who face such failures by reminding us that God loves us at the same time he condemns the This is a short and very readable book about some of the battles Christians go through.

I especially appreciate his attempts to understand what Christians go through rather than offer impersonal answers to very personal and complex situations.

    This is a book I read years ago, before lending it to a friend who held on to it for a long time. Since I finally got it back, I thought I'd read it again. The book lists a number of struggles that you might face as a Christian that can distract you from your beliefs, including lust, depression and pride. In each case, Vaughan Roberts uses examples from the Bible to explain what the theological view on each issue is and also explains how they can be overcome.

    Very helpful one-chapter summaries of how to approach some of the most common battles we experience in the Christian life. Profitable to read from start to finish but would also lend itself to recommending someone facing a particular struggle read just the relevant chapter. A good read for teens too. Only disappointment/oversight - in chapter on depression, in terms of seeking outside help for persistent depression, the advice given is to see your doctor but there is no mention of also seeing you Very helpful one-chapter summaries of how to approach some of the most common battles we experience in the Christian life.

    I have read most of Vaughan Roberts' books and have really enjoyed them. This one for me was more a 2.5 than a 3 I think. It tackles some big issues that Christians do face- doubt, pride, guilt, depression, homosexuality but for me there was far too much for one small (144 pages) book to tackle so it felt like most were very briefly touched on. I did find the final chapter "Keeping spiritually fresh" a good reminder as to ways of keeping going and not giving up with a few helpful tips.

Roberts is not afraid of drawing on personal experiences with difficult situations which I think adds to the reading of the book but all in all I much prefer some of his other books and would particularly recommend God's Big Picture.

    A really great and personal book on the difficulties of a Christian in an increasingly hostile secularistic world. He explains a Biblical point if view very simply and very humbly. A definite recommendation for anyone struggling with the issues covered in this book!

    I read this to a friend while we worked in the now closed Limerick Christian Bookshop in 2009ish. It's a good book, I liked what it covered and it talked briefly on a number of topics.
