In the preface, Lundgaard explains that he wanted to read about sin and how to grow in holiness. This is an important thing to know about because without holiness, no one will see the Lord. He wanted to know exactly what role sin played in his life as a believer and just how much he could conquer the sin in his life that seemed to overcome him so easily. Many of us, I’m sure, have given this some thought. As Christians constantly fighting against our sinful nature, we often feel like sin gets the upper hand in us. Fortunately for us, the Bible is very instructive on this matter. Lundgaard needed to know all he could about our lifelong enemy, sin.
This book is broken up into four parts: what sin is, how it works, what it does, and how we beat it. Lundgaard’s book is instructive and insightful. He writes in a straightforward language and tries to use a bit of humor and contemporary examples in his book.
Lundgaard was very successful in his desire to write a book that was able to biblically teach the subject of indwelling sin in believers and how to mortify sin in our bodies. Please check it out at our Three Rivers Church library this Sunday!
