Book Description from NetGalley:
The enemy is bent on enticing us to enjoy the gifts of this world while making the Giver optional or irrelevant in our quest for life. But what if in God's purposes, temptation is not merely an obstacle to overcome but an opportunity to flourish in faith? Tim Chaddick believes our greatest temptation is to act independently from God. In The Truth about Lies, Chaddick reveals how Jesus' wilderness temptations serve as a field guide for understanding our own temptations, why God allows them, and the role they play in who we will ultimately become.
The Truth about Lies is a Christian living book. It's short but packed full of life-changing truth. Ever wonder why God allows temptation? This book showed how God uses temptation to expose what we desire the most and to build our trust relationship with Him. The author examined the temptation of Jesus in the wilderness, His trial before the Sanhedrin, and more to show the lies with which Satan tempts us. He also pointed out the truth that was applied to each temptation or that can be learned from it. He also explained how to succeed when faced with temptation, and how we need to look at the root issues behind why we give in to certain temptations.
Basically, this book is about getting the correct, biblical view of temptation. This is a great, foundational book for any Christian, but I'd especially recommend it to those who are feeling discouraged regarding temptation.
