“What makes a resource on the topic of addiction worth reading? In short, a resource that is based in Scripture and balances truth with tools. Dr. Mark E. Shaw takes exactly this approach in his book The Heart of Addiction: A Biblical Perspective by writing to Christians and non-Christians in need of care and transformation from addiction.”
Back in the Fall of 2011, the Biblical Counseling Coalition wrote a review of Mark Shaw’s book The Heart of Addiction: A Biblical Perspective. The above quote is from that review, which gives a concise overview of the book and also states:
“The world’s approach is man-centric versus God’s approach which is Christ-centric. Shaw repeatedly brings the reader back to this understanding.”
