Synopses & Reviews
The bestselling author of The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry equips readers to recognize the lies and resist the forces that seek to steal their happiness, wholeness, and holiness.
Pastor John Mark Comer wants you to know that whether you want to be or not, you are at war. Not with foreign assailants or domestic terrorists. No, this is the sort of war you experience deep in your mind and body. It’s a war with the forces that seek to wreak havoc in your hearts and homes through subtle deceptions.
For two millennia, apprentices of Jesus have been at war with three fierce and consistent adversaries of the soul: the world, the flesh, and the devil. To this day, they feed us deceptive ideas that appeal to disordered desires that harm our spiritual and relational well-being. In Live No Lies, Comer parses out the tactics, strengths, and weaknesses of these enemies, giving you a clear battle plan and spiritual practices to outwit and overcome these seemingly ancient, yet very-much-alive adversaries.
That tug-of-war in your chest for wholeness? Those lies that sabotage your peace? It’s time to identify them, and defeat them.
