Our Favorite Sins: The Sins We Commit & How You Can Quit - By Todd Hunter

Our Favorite Sins, by pastor Todd Hunter, is a book about overcoming temptations and gaining victory over sin.  The book cover claims this book to be"the essential guide for beating temptation."

A recent study by the Barna Group revealed that the top five temptations are anxiety, procrastination, gluttony, media addiction, and laziness. Hunter explains how temptations and desires work to produce sin within us and claims we sin is based in our disordered desires  This book describes what "our favorite sins" are but doesn't offer much practical advice to combat them.  Instead the auhor recommends we can steer clear of temptation by reordering our thoughts, feelings,  and desires and by wanting  and becoming passionatly focused on God.

This was a boring read and ultimately not something I would recommend.  I was hoping for some useful advice or new insights about sin, but unfortunately this book did not deliver.  As a book reviewer, I felt obligated to finish this book for my review, otherwise I would not have continued reading.
