The War Within

Christians and Inner Conflicts


Those who long to walk close to God are often keenly aware of their shortcomings. This was as true for the apostles as it is for today's Christian leaders and Christian students. In this book, the author sets out to answer the following questions:
- What lies behind these inner conflicts?
- What are the implications of such conflicts for Christians?
- How does one successfully handle these conflicts?
- How useful is a rational mind to the Holy Spirit?

This book offers deep spiritual insights interlaced with down-to-earth illustrations that make it easily accessible and relevant.

I appreciate your honesty in acknowledging the vulnerability and frailty of us Christians; your insistence that our fallen self-centred nature is not abolished when we are converted; your appeal to your readers to use their minds; and your confidence that the Holy Spirit is able to cause his fruit to ripen in our lives.

Rector Emeritus, All Souls Church
