Breakthrough into Recovery launched at Lister Hill Baptist Church
A new self-help book for those struggling with addictions and habitual sins was launched in August.
Rory spoke about his book, which describes his own journey of recovery as well as guiding the reader through a 12-step programme. It can be used as the basis for a recovery group, or by an individual working through the book by themself.
Attendees at the book launch were offered refreshments and the opportunity to buy a signed copy of the book, with some of the proceeds going towards the church.
Most encouraging was the feedback the author has received since the event. He notes that Christians who have been a long time in the church are “giving testimony that the book has really opened their eyes, and as they start to implement some of the suggestions and start to work the programme as set out, they are having very real breakthroughs in their lives … peace and joy is returning to them.”
