As human beings we know what is right and what is wrong. We have read scripture and can discern what God requires from us. However, despite this knowledge sometimes we walk straight into temptations. It is almost as if we are standing in our own way. It is almost as if we cannot control our own selves. This is called the fallen nature. This book is about how to defeat that fallen nature. It is about challenging oneself to be stronger against this nature no matter how deeply embedded. Only then can we know the true power of God. Only then can we, as human beings, discover true spirituality.
It is commendable that David Piper has provided enough scripture to back up the material in this book. This way the idea of the fallen nature is not just speculation. Providing scripture also provides some sort of direction for the person to begin taking stock. For a person to begin making that change in their own selves. Scripture is the guiding light in this endeavour. Trying it otherwise would be futile.
The author’s voice is very firm. It is reassuring that I can be done but it is also very firm. He does not pull any punches. The author is also very understanding that at times one may feel like the fallen nature is more powerful than they are. To this, he offers understanding and scripture to help one get through it. He urges one to power through that and keep trying to defeat that. His writing is coloured with passion and dedication to his cause. His portrayal of a new is everything people desire their spirituality to be. It promises strength against temptation and even stronger faith.
This book is very chronological. It takes the reader through a step by step process. That makes it a very easy read. The reader is led towards understanding of the fallen nature first. Then they are led towards understanding of the new nature. Through these two steps, one cannot help but audit themselves. They cannot help but see their lives for what it is now and what it could be. David’s enthusiasm for discovering the new nature is almost infectious. Then he takes a detour to backsliding and God’s power to restore. These are two very important points to pass by before really embarking on the journey towards a new nature.
The book is filled with personal reflections and stories about David’s life. This makes the book come alive. It provides the reader with a companion with whom to take the journey and share troubles.
The book is interactive. It is intriguing and informative. It is enlightening. It is evocative. It is the kick in the butt you need to change things up and live according to God’s will. Five stars out of five for this book. It would make a great read for someone who has been feeling a little frustrated in their ability to stay true in their spirituality. For anyone who finds themselves constantly backsliding. For anyone who simply wants to see if their life is headed in the right direction or if they have given their fallen nature too much power.
