We don't talk about them, but all of us have them - private jealousies, resentments, fantasies, and temptations. For over four decades, Arnold's sensitive wisdom has helped thousands of readers battle these unwanted thoughts. Now his quiet but steady-selling little classic is available to a new generation in an expanded and revised new edition.

Arnold assures us that tempting thoughts are not sinful in and of themselves. It's what we do with them that matters. He offers concrete steps we can take to turn away from them and toward God. Drawing on the words of Jesus, and on his own experience as a pastor, Arnold guides the reader from frustration, guilt and self-doubt to single-minded freedom and finding peace in Christ.

Freedom from Sinful Thoughts has proved itself invaluable for new believers, pastors, counselors, youth ministers, and anyone seeking a closer relationship with God. Foreword by John Michael Talbot.

Publishers Weekly

Concise, straightforward...from the heart. Arnold sounds a warning to the self-oriented, therapeutic tendencies of our day: "The goal should always be liberation. We want to find Jesus, not ourselves."

Henri J. M. Nouwen

Arnold's writing is full of love. His deep-rootedness in Christ makes him a very wise, a very safe, and a very challenging guide.

E. Glen Hinson, Baptist Theological Seminary

Reminds me of Kierkegaard's great classic, Purity of Heart. Both force you to look deep within your own life.

Howard R. Macy, George Fox University

Loving and sensitive, Arnold makes his readers feel encouraged rather that judged. Here are nuggets of practical wisdom which deserve to be read, pondered, and treasured.

Dallas Willard, Author, The Spirit of the Disciplines

With deep insight into the workings of the mind, Arnold brings us towards deliverance by union with Christ.

I like these books a lot.

inspired words

excellent book gives new hopes and insights

I've been taught by the Spirit through Arnold's sensitive eloquence on a subject most fumble over. I LOVE YOUR SITE!

I believe the Lord led me to this book. It was very helpful for when one is having thoughts they don't want. The very things and feeling I was having explained in ways I would have never imagined. It allowed me to put in perspective what we as Christians face on this battle field (battle field of the mind) and how we have to stand firm in faith believing God and not get in to a pyschological tailspin of feeling like you can not overcome.

This book is very good. It is a great help to me and others.

In fact i am short of words, how i was blessed by this book i love it. Its a book i will always want to read continuing. Thanks, may THE ALMIGHTY GOD give u more knowledge to write such a book again.

I love this book, it's a breath of fresh air. I was impressed with the wisdom given in this book and will find many precious brethren to share it with. Although I must say, I am the one that needed to read this book the most, I have friends in ministry that admittedly struggle with what this book can give them freedom from. Thank you so much!!! Praise Jesus, live at the foot of the cross...

I am overwhelmed with the thought that you are making books like FREEDOM FROM SINFUL THOUGHTS available freely. I fully intend to get the word out to my parish and anyone else I can think of about this priceless opportunity. I am not often at a loss for words, but I am in this case. All I can say is THANK YOU !!!
