New Book Wednesdays: Defeating Sin by Fr Huneycutt
Dear Students and Friends,
This week's book is not new, but it is new to this blog. As well as read the book, you can also listen to a podcast interview with the author, Fr Joseph Huneycutt. The book is called "Defeating Sin: Overcoming Our Passions and Changing Forever."
Here's a description of the book:
Defeating Sin will help readers to better understand the disease that troubles the human soul. This book will prove an invaluable aid for those engaged in spiritual warfare, helping them make that U-trun from the passions toward the virtues. Christians of all denominational background will benefit from the ancient wisdom of the Church Fathers and the perpetual call to repentance.
Buy the book on Amazon, on Amazon for the Kindle, or from Regina Orthodox Press.
And here's the podcast description:

Joseph Huneycutt about his book "Defeating Sin: Overcoming Our Passions and Changing Forever."
