The spiritual exercises at the end of each chapter serve as a guide for self-examination, prayer, and assurance of God's forgiveness through Christ.

Prepare for a contemporary look at an ancient subject in author John T. Mabray’s new release, The Seven Deadly Sins and Spiritual Transformation ($14.99, paperback, 978-1-60957-027-9; $22.99, hardcover, 978-1-60957-028-6). By utilizing biblical teaching, historic theology, and pastoral counsel, the author shows how the seven deadly sins still affect the personal lives of Christians today in every aspect—body, soul, and spirit—and how Jesus’ death and resurrection has dealt with each of these deadly sins in an individual and unique way in order to cleanse believers of sin’s guilt and set them free from sin’s power.
“The seven deadly sins serve as a lens through which readers may examine themselves—their attitudes, inclinations, behaviors, and habits—in order to discover those areas of their lives in which they need to exercise repentance and experience spiritual transformation,” the author says. “The spiritual exercises at the end of each chapter serve as a guide for self-examination, prayer, and assurance of God’s forgiveness through Christ.”
Mabray acknowledges that he is personally and intimately familiar with each of the seven deadly sins in his own life, and points to the redeeming power and rich mercy of God through Jesus Christ as the only antidote to the corrupting power of sin. “Personal spiritual growth can really take place in our lives when we seriously repent of specific sins and look to Jesus Christ for forgiveness,” he explains.
