When sincere believers succumb to temptation it is seldom a sudden thing," writes Richard Exley. "Rather it is the culmination of a series of seemingly innocent compromises that ultimately result in a tragic fall." Exley refers to seven stages of temptation that are common in almost every sinful failure. Maybe you will recognize them, or maybe you are struggling at one of them right now. No matter what stage you are in, don't be discouraged, Deliver Me is ultimately a book of encouragement. It is a guide to enhance your Christian walk by allowing scriptural principles to become part of your spiritual disciplines.
