Breaking Free from Temptations,

Compulsions & Addictions

by Dr. David Eckman

Additional DescriptionMore Details

People from all walks of life give in to temptations and adopt patterns of secrecy and shame. Using groundbreaking research and offering compassionate understanding rooted deeply in Scripture, David Eckman shares:

  • how and why unhealthy appetites grip people and trap them in a fantasy world
  • how God responds gently to weakness and failure
  • how shame and guilt disappear when we realize His passionate delight in us
  • how four great experiences of the spiritual life break the addiction cycle
  • how enjoyment of our relationship with God actually guards us from addiction
Readers will discover how to break the pattern of out–of–control desires and extend grace, not judgment, to those facing such struggles. This is a much–needed Christian look at fighting addiction.

David Eckman’s excellent book SEX, FOOD & GOD is a must read for every Christian and even non-Christians. The beautiful, inspiring, heart warming message woven throughout the book is that God is not distant but close and wants to be their Heavenly Father, even their ‘daddy.’

How many Christians are really living the abundant life? Many say they know God loves them but how many really know that their Heavenly Father LIKES them and has a passionate delight in them? His love is not based on how well they perform or if they are struggling with addictions; God is not there to punish them but to bless them. This is a message that everyone needs to hear – not once but many times.

This book is liberating because our focus becomes our true identity in Christ and the wonderful, unconditional love and kindness of our heavenly Father. Be blessed and read this great book!” –Bob & Geri Boyd
Bob & Gerri Boyd are hosts for the Issues in Education Radio show that is heard on over 500 radio stations in North America:

David Eckman’s wisdom and vision helped me come face to face with “Issues I thought I had addressed long ago…The pain I have lived with so long is now gone, thanks to being able to give all of my family background over to God.” –Cheryl, Sacramento, California

“In reaching our students in the areas of their heart…In dealing with areas of addictions, eating disorders, and sexual disorders, nothing we’ve done has been more effective than what David Eckman’s material has done for us.” –Tim Rule, Northwest Associate Director Campus Crusade for Christ

About the Author
David Eckman, PhD, grew up in a dysfunctional family and came to the Lord as a teen. His emotions remained frozen through years of theological study and pastoring, until he finally gained a picture of how God truly loved him. When he became dean and professor at Western Seminary, he began to do extensive personal counseling; and in 1997 he cofounded BWGI Seminars, which seeks to bring about spiritual transformation through helping people understand who they are in Christ. Becoming Who God Intended is his first book for Harvest House.

Additional Course Info

Addictive behaviors such as internet pornography, marijuana, cutting, smoking, alcohol, sexual immorality, and others are examined by telling the stories of six women and men. With each story a part of the spiritual solution to temptation, compulsion and addiction is presented. In addition, a dramatic or comedic vignette forcefully drives home a truth. Addictions follow a pattern known as the addictive cycle. In this course students will discover keys to dismantling this cycle through developing elements of a vibrant spiritual life.

In this course you will meet Sasha (addicted to pornography), Scott (addicted to cutting), Kimberly (bulimic), Nathan (addicted to drugs and pornography), Heidi (sexual addiction), and Camille (family dysfunction and addiction). Each story is powerfully told and teaches the addiction cycle and addiction equation, and explains how the truth of God as a sympathetic and understanding Father breaks through our dysfunction and brings healing and hope.

The first goal of the Sex, Food & God course is to learn how the addictive cycle works. This is the pattern that drive the two dozen or more addictive activities that people struggle with. As we learn this we can also see how the addictive cycle can be taken apart piece by piece. To drive this truth home, these eight different people will tell their stories. These individuals will be interviewed singly and as a group. We will particularly address pornography, food, and alcohol addiction.

The interviews and group interviews are an integral part of the course because what those individuals have gone through will strike a common chord in all of us. Their stories will help us stand outside of our struggles and understand ourselves and our weaknesses better. Further, the stories will encourage us with the positive results that are now in their lives.

If you choose to work with a mentor, which is recommended, the truths that you are learning can become personalized for your life. In working with a mentor and following the strategies described, a person struggling with an addictive behavior will be given the tools for success.

With a mentor, the participant will interact with the mentor two times within the course for an hour apiece. Interaction via messaging will also occur at the end of each session with regards to the quizzes, journaling or question answering.


Other Information


We expect that the participant will go through the material thoughtfully, meaning this course should take a minimum of twenty hours and a maximum of forty hours.

Employing video, music, and stimulating visuals, the Sex, Food, and God experience appeals to today’s media savvy generation. Sex, Food, and God answers the demand for a video-based curriculum series that draws participants into a place where they are ready for life-changing discussions straight from God’s Word. The content covers the Addictive Cycle that abandonment and emotional pain kicks off, while demonstrating that only the core realities of Christianity can dismantle that cycle. Sex, Food, and God is NOT a twelve-step program, but a relevant, leading-edge approach that deeply resonates with the current media-driven culture!
