Our Favorite Sins

April 23, 2012

author Todd D. Hunter is an Anglican Bishop and the founding pastor of Holy Trinity Anglican Church. he is also an adjunct professor at several seminaries. his latest book is Our Favorite Sins: The Sins We Commit & How You Can Quit.

the first comment i’d like to make is a superficial one: the book cover is great. i think the cover design is very clever and thought-provoking before you even read a single word in the book. very well done.

Our Favorite Sins deals with something we all face: temptation.

temptation is not the same as sin. being tempted is not a sin.

we seem to beat ourselves up about temptation, though. sometimes i think we see being temptated as sinful as giving in to said temptation.

Hunter writes with a pastors heart and scholars mind referencing the Bible and sharing stories. the book is also enhanced with research from the Barna Group.

Our Favorite Sins is well written and a treat to read.

i would reccomend this book to Christians of all stages on their walk with Christ. it may prevent some struggles for those who are starting a walk with Christ; and it may help those who have been Christians for years see something in a new light that is extremely helpful.

*Full Disclosure: I received this book for free from Thomas Nelson through “Book Sneeze.” They give free books to bloggers for honest reviews.*
