Today, people are able to engage in choice in almost every aspect of their lives—choice is good; we look up to people who pursue their personal goals. The worship of choice enables people to pursue individual self-fulfillment as the main motivating force in their lives. Resisting temptation is not on their agenda.

The fallout in society is a higher level of crime, a lower standard of morality, abandonment of ethics at work and an increase in litigation, because failure in our lives must mean it's someone else's fault. The Church is also infiltrated—failing to resist temptation has led us to increasing divorce levels, scandal, and internal strife.

Colin Peckham's book is a practical guide to resisting temptation. We discover how temptation works, what places and times to avoid putting yourself into the danger zone, and how to escape, both practically and spiritually. He also supplies Scriptures to meditate on to defend ourselves during future trials.

Top Highlights

“No-one would know about the fractured relationship except you and God” (Page 52)

“deny ungodliness and worldly lusts (Titus 2:11–12)” (Pages 31–32)

“Recognize the potential danger of the workplace. Conversations in the workplace should not include personal problems. Don’t discuss the failure of your spouse at the office. This will evoke a sympathetic response from those who feel that they could make you happy when your spouse is obviously not doing so. Don’t lean on the unavailable person. This is a language which the sexually adventurous will understand. Don’t tease with subtle insinuations, nor ask provocative questions. Don’t stare with meaningful, lingering looks.” (Pages 22–23)

“An immoral relationship is not an expression of love, but a revelation of selfish lust. Lust is a beast that can devour us. Love desires the best for another person, and endures pain, sacrificing selfish gratification for the good of the other.” (Page 9)

“Here we see the value of the Scripture and the impotence of Satan against it. The devil may tempt us to fall, but he cannot make us fall. He may persuade us to cast ourselves down but he cannot cast us down.” (Page 15)

Praise for the Print Edition

It sets the scene, describes temptation, warns against danger areas and danger times and has very practical, down-to-earth advice on how to escape these temptations both practically and spiritually. This reviewer does not know of any other book that gives such excellent consel, advice and warning that is, at the same time, biblically based, compassionate and practical.
