If you are looking for a good Bible study or Sunday school class, try Kris Lundgaard's The Enemy Within subtitled Straight Talk about the Power and Defeat of Sin. Lundgaard opens the preface to his book with a provocative question. "If God has redeemed me from sin, and has given me his Holy Spirit to sanctify me and give me the strength against sin, why do I go on sinning?" In addressing this question, the author focuses on aspects of the power of sin: what it is, how it works, and what it does.
Drawing insight from the great Puritan writer John Owen, Lundgaard offers insight, encouragement and hope for overcoming this ever-present enemy within each of us. Although the text can be challenging at times, it can be appreciated and applied by Christians both young and old; and Lundgaard effectively uses illustrations as he explains Scripture texts that deal with sin and temptation. Each chapter concludes with questions for reflection and discussion.
