A Plan that Works

“It’s time to stop pretending and to start coming clean with each other,” write the authors—Dr. Arnie Cole and Michael Ross. “Everybody needs help—‘There is no one righteous, not even one’ (Romans 3:10).” Arnie and Michael have seen real, lasting change during their 50-plus years of combined ministry experience. And as a noted behaviorist, Arnie has charted successful spiritual-growth programs for fellow “wounded strugglers.” His nationwide research study of more than 100,000 Christians, unlocks proven ways Christ-followers can resist the grip of temptation, unplug its power, and steer clear of its disastrous consequences.
