How to resist temptation, strengthen your will, govern your thoughts, and find balance of soul!
This is the book you need for those times in your life when even your most strenuous efforts to follow Christ end in frustration. Christian Self-Mastery explains why following Him can be so difficult — and how you can start now to make progress even in the most vexing areas of your life.
Author Fr. Basil W. Maturin insists that no matter how hard you're trying now, you can have a better relationship with God and greater self-mastery — if you follow his simple steps to getting your passions in check and improving your knowledge of your own motives, desires, and fears.
Fr. Maturin emphasizes the crucial role that self-discipline plays in your spiritual life and gives you solid ways you can distinguish it from counterfeits and avoid common mistakes people make when they try to change their habits and live for God.
This extraordinary book will help you in myriad ways to rise above your limitations and truly meet God!

A great and inspiring book. Easy to read and understand. Once you start you want to continue until the end.
This is an excellent investigation into why "we do the things we don't want to do and do not do the things we want to do". I found the book refreshingly honest and objective. Fr. Maturin gives solid practical techniques in overcoming our concupiscence balanced with encouragement and gratitude for God's gifts in each one of us.
