The purpose of this book is to enable Christians to lead the normal Christian life by resisting temptation through the power of the Holy Spirit, especially in applying Christ’s perfect life and victorious death over temptation and sin. The author initially explores two defective positions about temptation that Christians may encounter, before rejecting them to propose a robust Scripture-based way of resisting temptation and consequently living in obedience to God. The author structures the book in order to provide a Scriptural and theological basis for his argument before outlining practical guidance.
John Stevens makes very good use of Scripture, especially drawing on Galatians and Romans including a useful explanation and application of Romans 7. He illustrates effectively the role of Satan and our flesh in tempting us to sin and then explains how to address these adversaries in our fight with temptation. 'The Fight of Your Life' is well-written, realistic, contemporary, balanced, wise and uncompromising to equip Christians to strengthen our resolve to resist temptation, so that we can live wholeheartedly for our Saviour.
