Lust, greed, pride, sloth, envy, wrath, gluttony ... tradition calls them "deadly sins." Truth be told, all sin is deadly (Romans 3:23), even our secret habits and unkind thoughts. But Brian Hand believes that it's helpful to understand these seven "capital sins--sins of the heart that give structure to the individual acts of sin that we commit."
Web of Iniquity: The Entangling of Sins is an eye-opening exposé of how each of these vices flows from and gives rise to other sins, weaving a tangled network that's difficult for believers to escape from. This biblical analysis gives us hope, pointing to the sufficiency of God's grace and leading us back to the basics of repentance and faith.
Along the way, Hand shares fascinating insights about why certain habitual sins seem so intractable, which sins are worse than they seem, and how some Christians are harsher in condemning certain sins than Jesus Himself was.
