The author says: Some people have shown me copies of this book in which almost every paragraph is underlined or high-lighted. They’ve obviously found it helpful. To be honest, I think some of the books on this subject are as much mythical – even superstitious – as biblical. My focus is clearly on the essence of the gospel and the complete victory we have in Christ over the effects of sin, guilt, fear, failure, generational influences, religious heritage and so on. Breaking is now in its second printing. Hundreds of copies have been sold in South East Asia where the section on breaking the power of religion has been particularly relevant. Although it’s not written as a text book, I think it would be excellent value for students studying Counselling, Pastoral Care, Evangelism, Marriage and Family — or in any area where there is a focus on ministry to people with a negative past.

What Others Say

Dr Barry Chant has written an outstanding book to help Christians break the chains of their past life — the chains of guilt, rejection, fear, failure and the like. The treatment is biblical, wise and amply illustrated by a wealth of examples.The whole thing is attractively written by an experienced and deeply spiritual counsellor and teacher.

I have always admired Dr Barry Chant for his deep insight, practical knowledge and biblical scholarship. This latest book meets all expectations — especially as Barry has skilfully combined his broad understanding of the human predicament — with so many practical, day to day solutions to break from the past. He has also brought together the stark recognition of the debilitating influence of guilt, rejection and spiritual bondage with the positive Christian message of hope and renewal.This is a book about personal liberation. Having grown up in a predominantly Asian culture, I deeply appreciate Barry’s assessment of the fierce grip that religious tradition and bondage have on most, if not all of us. More importantly, there is great joy in knowing that one may find total release and freedom through out Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
