We do our best to read the Bible, pray, and engage in other spiritual disciplines to fight off indwelling sin yet find ourselves face down on the mat more than we care to admit. In TAP, Yancey Arrington looks to some of history's best sin-fighters, John Owen and the Puritans, to find out why the "Do More" approach of the spiritual disciplines may be the wrong strategy to defeating sin. TAP exposes some of the more popular, but ultimately inept, approaches and beliefs about sin, repentance and spiritual growth while coaching how we can get "into the cage" with our sins and not only survive... but win!
Discussion questions included with each chapter.
