    About The Book

    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.
