Product description

Product Description

It’s great that God forgives us when we sin…but wouldn’t it be better if we could live without sinning at all? Many have labeled that a heresy because all their experience knows is one of being dominated by sin, but in scripture sinlessness is the clear reality of the normal Christian life. (Yes, even Romans 7 proves it!)
This is one the most powerful and practical books ever written on the subject of sin. But don’t let the title fool you, this isn’t another step-by-step book of formulas and rituals to perform when you are tempted by sin (most of which never work!). This isn’t a book that will tell you how to fill your computer with “porn blockers,” and your contact list with accountability partners that you make embarassing confessions to, but you’re still left to suffer with those urges. This life-changing book reveals your true identity in Christ, and everything He has done for you regarding sin. D. R. Silva breaks down popular Bible verses about sin that are frequently quoted, but the power Is never truly understood, which keeps believers from being empowered to live them out. This book makes it easy. When you find out who you really are and how God looks at you, sin instantly loses its appeal. Silva takes the old approach of “try harder to stop sinning” and replaces it with “Stop and look at yourself from a new perspective!”
It’s absolutely possible to live a sin-free life, and thousands upon thousands around the world are enjoying that freedom. How to Overcome Sin doesn’t only tell you that you should stop sinning (that’s already been hammered into your head!), it actually shows you how, first by proving that it’s possible!
“D. R. Silva is part of an exciting breed of young authors proclaiming the gospel of radical grace. Unafraid to ask the big questions or confront manmade traditions, he writes so that the church might live up to its full potential in Christ. How to Overcome Sin is a book that will challenge the way you think and help you to see your life through the awesome work of the cross.” — Paul Ellis, author of Stuff Jesus Never Said, and The Hyper-Grace Gospel, Silver Medal winner of 2015 Illumination Book Awards
“D.R. Silva is a great author who navigates the reader around the potholes of religion and leads them into the safe fields of grace.” — Mick Mooney, Huffington Post, and author of An Outsider’s Guide to The Gospel
“This book is a refreshing change, bringing a truth that will be water to your soul: Jesus has made you righteous and completely set you free from sin!” – Phil Drysdale,

What can I say? Apart from excellently! Every person should read this book, Christian or not, especially those who are searching for the TRUTH, I have been a Christian for 35 years, I wish this book was out their at least 30 years ago, would have saved a lot of heartache and wasted years believing wrong doctrine from dumb teachers, going home crying feeling condemned and unworthy every Sunday, because of being taught that I had to please God, I had to be perfect in Gods sight, This book opens the door of pure grace and let's the light shine right through you, how it was meant to do right from the day you first accepted Christ. Silva's other book " Hyper Grace. The dangerous doctrine of a Happy God" is just as beautiful and amazing as this one! Thank you D. R,

5.0 out of 5 stars Must read for every believer!! 19 July 2014
By Goodldc - Published on

If you were to ask me what God is doing in His church today it would be this. Retuning to your first love. Not in the way that we have been taught, but by way of retuning to the Gospel. There is a reformation going on I believe. God is revealing the whole gospel and what was accomplished through His Son. He is raising up people like D.R. to articulate the revelation of the Gospel and it's power to set us free!! I have been a believer for 37 years and I am just now discovering on my own what Jesus has done for me. You sure don't hear it from the pulpit. This will turn your theology inside out. Get it.... Inside out. Keep spreading the good news brother!!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the BEST book you will ever read to confirm your new ... 23 September 2014

I feel as though I should send D.R. Silva a million dollars. This is the BEST book you will ever read to confirm your new identity in Christ. If you are still under the delusion that you want to sin, then you need to get this book ASAP. You are new, you are new, you are new and you are free from sin because Christ destroyed the power of it. After reading this book you will no longer have an excuse to remain in sin. You have a new heart and a new DNA. For 8 years I have embraced wrong identity and blasphemous lies. This book's message, the truth, our new identity in Christ, made me free. Thank you!

5.0 out of 5 stars An exceptional resource to finding freedom 24 April 2014
By pk - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I want to start with why I bought this book. As I read the preview, I was immediately drawn in. Unable to relate to the author's particular issue, I could certainly relate to the emotional turmoil and struggle in trying to deal with sin. I was so engaged that when I came to the end of the preview I was left hanging and knew I had to buy the book (kindle version). This is a rare occurance for me. Once I got the book in my library, I searched for the cutoff point to pick up where I left off.
I didn't just read this book, I consumed it.
D.R. Silva does an excellent job presenting his case for Grace. He is a self described "complusive question asker" and has inspired me to start paying more attention to the questions I am asking, in my own search for freedom in Grace.
