Within the pages of D.K. Kern’s new book, The Raw Truth - Addicted and Redeemed, ($15.49, paperback, 9781498457101; $9781498457118, e-book, 9781498457118) readers will follow the journey of the author to see firsthand that regardless of the severity of a broken addicted life, there is hope. Through his story, Kern wants to help others to see deeper into the life of an addict and that there is hope through Jesus Christ. He educates readers on what the conception of addiction looks like and the inherited struggle passed down from generations. He tackles the question: What is the life that is lived once addiction is conceived and matures? He stresses that with an intervention of God, an addict will be led into the spiritual overcoming of addiction through Jesus Christ.

“I hope that readers gain complete hope, from the view of an addict and the view of a loved one of an addict,” states the author. “I want each person to take away a deeper level of understanding and work on understanding the complete person first before they try to judge or treat the addiction. In addition, I hope that people who are addicted and their families realize the truth behind their addictions. People need to understand that restoration of individuals and families broken by addiction can only be achieved through Jesus Christ.”
