Book Review: Our Favorite Sins by Todd Hunter

Our Favorite Sins is a book about battling temptation... especially those temptations which are especially enticing to you. Hunter goes through some of the most common temptations, but mainly generalizes so that we can all benefit from the examples even if we don't share a particular weakness. He affirms that the only salvation from temptation is God, but presents new (old) methods for connecting with God so that He can save us.

I really took my sweet time reading this book. That's because I needed time to reflect and pray as I went through. I really enjoyed the spiritual practicality Hunter shares. I found it interesting and even enlightening as he presented the liturgical prayers as tools, truly weapons, in this battle of sin nature and surrendered will to God. I'm from a liturgical church so I already saw their value but I hadn't seen them quite in the light presented by Hunter.

This book has definitely earned my recommendation. I am very glad I had the privilege to read it.

I received this book free from the booksneeze program in exchange for my unbiased review.
