“If you and your family are dealing with addiction please get this book. It’s a true open door to hope.”

“This is the best book I have every read on addiction and Christian Recovery! It has changed my life and world view. I have let my ‘addiction’ define me. It is who I was not who I am- now. That is not denial but delivery! I will always wrestle with this ‘thorn in my flesh’ but it doesn’t have to beat me! Thank you and God Bless you Mark Shaw!!!”

“I am about to get involved with teaching Bible at an Addiction Recovery Ministry at my Church. The Heart of Addiction book was recommended to me by a Pastor, of a different denomination with no affiliation to my Church. He started an Addiction Recovery Ministry at his Church probably 20 years ago. He regards this book as a must have and a must read.”

The Heart of Addiction


The Heart of Addiction: A Biblical Perspective

by Mark E. Shaw

Sin is rebellion against God; it is a heart set on having its own way.

Christians are not powerless to truly overcome an “addiction” if they have the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit to enable them to say ‘no’ to choices that will mentally enslave them.

The Heart of Addiction makes the distinction between what the world terms a “disease” and what Scripture demonstrates is a life-dominating sin nature problem.

You will find biblical tools to help you examine your heart’s motives at the root of the “addiction.”
