How Do I Fight Sin and Temptation?

J. Garrett Kell

Through biblical wisdom and engaging stories, J. Garrett Kell confronts the spiritual weight and consequences of rebellion and offers 7 gospel-centered ways to fight sin. Reminding believers that God always provides a way out of temptation, Kell highlights several steps to fight sin—including grace, community, and confession—guiding readers away from destruction and toward freedom in Christ.

“As a pastor, I get asked lots of questions. I’m approached by unbelievers seeking to understand the gospel, new believers unsure about next steps, and maturing believers wanting help answering questions from their Christian family, friends, neighbors, or coworkers. It’s in these moments that I wish I had a book to give them that was brief, answered their questions, and pointed them in the right direction for further study. Church Questions is a series that provides just that. Each booklet tackles one question in a biblical, brief, and practical manner. The series may be called Church Questions, but it could be called ‘Church Answers.’ I intend to pick these up by the dozens and give them away regularly. You should too.”
