God Loves Addicts, This I Know: God's Word and the Road to Recovery by John Stephen Dawson conveys a liberating message, a book that draws the attention of the reader and creates a consciousness of the reality of addiction, which is deeper than what most people think. We often associate addiction with the intake of substances like alcohol or drugs but the author demonstrates that unhealthy attachments and behaviors can constitute the worst form of addiction. An addiction builds from our deep sense of loss, loneliness, or the aching void that drive us to seek comfort and refuge in what actually breaks us. This book provides a powerful tool for readers to understand addiction and the path to healing. The author explains that our addictions are the idols that promise us they will meet our needs, make us feel the way we want to feel, the way we have to feel if we are to make it through the day with our sanity intact. But they don’t bring life at all.

This book is an eye-opener that helps readers understand the addictions that make them waste their life. It provides a spiritual antidote to our pain. With strong and relevant biblical references, the author guides the reader on the path towards inner freedom. The writing is fluid, a conversational style that utterly engages the reader. In a compassionate and lively tone, the author helps readers see how they make themselves prisoners of their addictions and offers a message that is life-changing. Everyone needs to read this book. It contains wisdom that will change how we see and relate to ourselves and how we relate to God.
