A fresh approach to an old topic is this unique treatise on Spirit-Controlled Living. Focusing on impulses -- those pesky little "triggers" of idea and energy that may lead even well-disciplined people toward brilliant or regretted actions -- Clark Cothern's third book provides readers more than "white knuckling" techniques for self-control. His step-by-step biblical model of impulse management shows how to use spontaneous anger, overspending, overeating, misplaced sexual desires, and other impulses to identify weak areas and partner with God toward achieving peace and freedom.
