Product Description

London's suburbs. Latin America's megacities. West Africa's villages. China's skyscrapers. North America's homes. Addiction is a worldwide epidemic. This book is about the very communities in which we work, rest, and play.

Dr. Andy Partington provides a powerful look at the gospel for the addicted and helps us think about what it means to be the Church in light of this growing—and heartbreaking—epidemic. Hope in Addiction is not just about substance abuse, but about gambling addictions, porn dependencies, workaholism, gaming and internet addictions.

Not only does Partington help us understand addiction and recovery, he also provides practical steps for addiction care born out of his travels, research, and up-front global ministry. The church and our communities are full of people at risk of addiction, in active addiction itself, and in recovery from addiction. This is a book about how slaves to addiction become children of the living God and family in the community of God. Wherever they are. Whatever has enslaved them.

Dr. Andy Partington bridges theology, addiction theory, personal stories, and front-line ministry in this book for Christian leaders, influencers, counselors, educators, and family members.
