BRISBANE, Australia (PRWEB) August 11, 2017
Albert Stuart Reece believes that addiction is one of the major issues facing contemporary culture worldwide. However, he considers this issue as far from well understood by most people inside and outside of the church. Because of this, it prompted him to write “Let My People Go A Theology of Addiction” (published by WestBow Press in July of 2016) to increase and enhance the understanding of the church and the community on this difficult, complex, challenging and important subject.
Set for a new marketing campaign, the book combines both the scientific and Christian aspects of addiction. As it is written by Reece, who is both a medical professional, and has treated thousands of drug-addicted patients and an active research professor, the book brings a unique perspective to the ancient issues raised by addiction.
“The book picks up what God is saying in the Spirit, breaks these concepts down into manageable parts and makes them accessible to lay believers who are either concerned for individuals caught up in the destructive maelstrom of the addictive holocaust or passionate about making policies to address the manner in which society copes with the myriad challenges addiction presents,” Reece says.
The publication of “Let My People Go A Theology of Addiction” hopes to give readers a greatly improved understanding of addiction, what it is, how it works, the ways to deal with it in individuals and the ways to assist its care in the wider community.
