BRISBANE, Australia (PRWEB) April 10, 2017
Addiction is one of the most prominent issues society faces and is a complex subject matter. In his new book, Albert Stuart Reece addresses this vast topic by bringing insights from his extensive medical experience in working with addicts.
“Let My People Go: A Theology of Addiction” is an informative book, which addresses the underlying concepts of addiction while providing readers with scriptural guidance. Reece has a profound knowledge of the underlying science relating to addiction as he has conducted research in addiction for more than 20 years.
“Addiction reflects who we are and it becomes who we are,” said Reece. “If we are ever to get a handle on the addictive tsunami's presently sweeping society we must come to grips with the profoundly spiritual nature of what is occurring.”
The concepts discussed in the book have been extensively tested on patients over many years. “Let My People Go: A Theology of Addiction” has been endorsed by some of the leading anti-drug educators in Australia, and the leading physician on the interface between medical practice and religion internationally.
“Much of our modern social behavior is addictive and religious or pseudo-religious,” said Reece. “Addictions can be broadly defined and include both chemical and behavioral. Salvation for the individual and the society requires recognition of the deeply religious nature of much modern behavior, and a true re-direction of our natural innate tendency to worship God.”
