Biblical Encouragement for the Lifelong Pursuit of Freedom from Sin

Temptation is unrelenting. Whether it sneaks up in a social-media post, a relationship, or a bout of anger, there will always be an invitation to sin. But sin isn’t just an inevitable misstep; it’s a personal rejection of God and his commands. And it’s a battle every Christian must fight.
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.

“Christians are pressed by very real questions. How does Scripture structure a church, order worship, organize ministry, and define biblical leadership? Those are just examples of the questions that are answered clearly, carefully, and winsomely in this new series from 9Marks. I am so thankful for this ministry and for its incredibly healthy and hopeful influence in so many faithful churches. I eagerly commend this series.”
R. Albert Mohler Jr., President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

“Sincere questions deserve thoughtful answers. If you’re not sure where to start in answering these questions, let this series serve as a diving board into the pool. These minibooks are winsomely to-the-point and great to read together with one friend or one hundred friends.”
Gloria Furman, author, Labor with Hope and Missional Motherhood

“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.”
Juan R. Sanchez, Senior Pastor, High Pointe Baptist Church, Austin, Texas; author, Seven Dangers Facing Your Church

“Where can we Christians find reliable answers to our common questions about life together at church—without having to plow through long, expensive books? The Church Questions booklets meet our need with answers that are biblical, thoughtful, and practical. For pastors, this series will prove a trustworthy resource for guiding church members toward deeper wisdom and stronger unity.”
Ray Ortlund, President, Renewal Ministries
