We all are creatures of habit. Some of those habits tend to hold us back for the best that God has for us. Steve Poe asks what these habits reveal about ourselves and if we are trying to fix these habits on our own or with God’s help.  Also, he asks what is keeping us from acknowledging that our habits are harmful both to ourselves and others. 

Each chapter focuses on a common toxic habit and the way to replace them with godly habits that can bring life-giving freedom in Christ. Some of the habits addressed including pride, anger, worry, prayerlessness and workaholism to name a few. At the end of each chapter are examples of choices that can be made each day to aid an individual to create change that lasts.

At the end of the book are additional reflection questions that address each of the habits discussed.  This is a very practical and useful book to help individuals to face their habits and to make changes to grow in their relationship to Christ and to others.
