He explains the mind-games an addict plays—with himself and others. These charades can be very effective at fooling others, but internally they only intensify feelings of inadequacy.
Breaking with these theories, May believes that there is little evidence to support this. The author has some deep theological convictions. In fact, for May, addiction makes a person depend on and trust in something else, other than God, for ultimate security and sense of well being p. His continued reference to and discussion of grace makes this a work which provides hope to the hopeless.
He also realizes how our addictions sabotage grace from being operative. Addressing the role of community is something I find missing from most discourses about people who are addicts. Thankfully, May, puts much emphasis on the role of community—and how our addictions impact community.
Addictions both inhibit community our availability to God and others and yet require community p. May assumes the importance of community. For him, our journey away from addictions can never be a private thing between ourselves and God. This very biblical concept is often missing from most discussions on addictions.http://officegoodlucks.com/order/46/2294-localizar-un-celular.php
