Overcoming Sin & Temptation - Book Review

In some ways I found this a difficult review to start, so much material covering such an important subject, where to start?
My first observation is that this book cannot be approached with a view to skim reading or anything similar.
Although some of the archaic language has been sifted there is still a lot of words that are not commonly used today, if at all. (There is a glossary so don't dispair)
That being said, it does mean that you will have to focus fully whilst reading this book and not allow yourself to be distracted. All that effort will be worth it.
As John Piper used to say to his sons if they complained that a good book was hard to read "Raking is easy, but all you get is leaves; digging is hard, but you might find diamonds."

In this book you will find diamonds in abundance and seams of pure gold, but you will have to expend effort to get there, but it will be so worth it.

The whole subject of sin is rarely handled in such a forthright and honest way in todays 'touchy feely, 'I' centered' Christian world.

Although hundreds of years old this could have been written today such is the relevence.

Yes, this book will require you to expend much effort, but you will be rewarded with excellent truth and gifted with wisdom in this crucial area.

Read this book, again I say, read this book.

This review may be short, but others are so much more eloquent than I and as such I will leave it to them to give you more of an insight into the actual material.
