“In the years I have been a pastor,” writes Rick Warren, “the number-one question I’m asked is, ‘Rick, why can’t I change?’” People want to change—but they’re stuck.Here’s how to get unstuck. Drawing simple but powerful truths from the Bible, this book gives you practical guidance for specific types of change, and it links you up with the power to actually make the changes you long to make.This is no pie-in-the-sky theory. It’s what redemption is about, and it’s founded on the resurrection power of Jesus himself. Power that cancels your past and sets you free to get on with life. Power to conquer your problems. Power to change.The first two chapters help you lay the foundations for change. Then, taking you inside the Scriptures, Rick Warren guides you step-by-step through ten different areas. Do you want to …o become a more joyful person?o cultivate a peaceful life in this uptight world?o be a kinder, more gracious individual?o replace self-indulgence with self-control?o experience what the truly “good life” is all about?You can! All of the above and more are covered in plain, straightforward language. As you apply the truth of God’s Word by the power of his Spirit, your life will change. You’ll move out of your rut—and get on track with God’s wonderful purposes for your life.
