Addiction and Christian Recovery

This from Christianity Today is a helpful piece in helping Christians understand what addiction is and is not, how we can help and how we can hinder someone struggling with the disease, and the complexity that prevents simplistic answers.  On behalf of one more Christian recovering from addiction–and one who is working to help Christians understand addiction, thank you to CT for an excellent piece.

About Kelly Clark

I am a convinced, if not very virtuous, Christian, recovering from alcohol abuse and many other addictions, and have been working a program of recovery consistently for over nineteen years-- since I blew my life up with chaos and crimes and hurt many people I loved. I am active in 12 Step Fellowships, sponsoring several men and attending several meetings each week. I expect to finish a Masters of Divinity in the Fall of 2011, and soon will begin a discernment process in my church about possible ordained ministry. In my day job, I am a trial attorney, representing adult victims of childhood sexual abuse.
