Drew Dyck

Moody Publishers, 2019,  224 pages


Drew Dyck (editor at Moody Publishers) posits that people who cultivate the vital virtue of self-control lead freer, happier, and more meaningful lives. Our bad habits—from the slight to the serious—bring a host of painful consequences and ultimately keep us from becoming the people God created us to be.

The book serves as a guide to breaking bad habits and growing your willpower. The author explores Scripture’s teachings on how to live a disciplined life while offering practical strategies for growth based on the science of self-control. Whether you want to deepen your spiritual life, or conquer an addiction, this book will help you get motivated, stay on track, and achieve your goals.
