Escape from Codependent Christianity

by Dr. Jim Richards


You will not find the term codependency in the Bible, yet it motivated Adam at the fall of man. It is the root of all addictions, the destroyer of all relationships, and it is consuming our world. The greatest weakness of the Church has been our failure to set people free. We reach people who are addicted, but instead of helping to set them free, we simply transfer their addiction onto the church, the pastor, or some religious program. The result is a church full of hurting people who are not free. This book identifies how the world system of codependency has swept through government, education, family, and the church. But more than point out the problem, it points out the only cure. You can break the destructive patterns in your life. This book is a must for understanding human difficulties. It will be a valuable tool for the counselor, the pastor, or the layman.
