Publisher's Summary

Are your thoughts out of control - just like your life? Do you long to break free from the spiral of destructive thinking? Let God's truth become your battle plan to win the war in your mind!

We've all tried to think our way out of bad habits and unhealthy thought patterns, only to find ourselves stuck with an out-of-control mind and off-track daily life. Pastor and New York Times best-selling author Craig Groeschel understands deeply this daily battle against self-doubt and negative thinking, and in this powerful new book, he reveals the strategies he's discovered to change your mind and your life for the long-term.

Drawing upon Scripture and the latest findings of brain science, Groeschel lays out practical strategies that will free you from the grip of harmful, destructive thinking and enable you to live the life of joy and peace that God intends you to live. Winning the War in Your Mind will help you:

  • Learn how your brain works and see how to rewire it
  • Identify the lies your enemy wants you to believe
  • Recognize and short-circuit your mental triggers for destructive thinking
  • See how prayer and praise will transform your mind
  • Develop practices that allow God's thoughts to become your thoughts

God has something better for your life than your old ways of thinking. It's time to change your mind so God can change your life.

Exercises and appendix are available in the audiobook companion PDF download.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Thought I had ‘heard this before’

There have been a lot of Christian authors writing about the battle in our minds and to take our thoughts captive. A lot of the time as believers we ‘know’ what do do but don’t think it necessary to read another book about it. But Pastor Groeschel’s perspective and the way he ties it into not only scripture, but the neurological side-is incredible. He’s not just saying ‘don’t think that’ but giving real life examples and practical steps to take to break the pattern of negative thought AND real life examples and practical steps to BEGIN a new pattern. RUTS and TRENCHES—life changing concept.

Blessing

I have a few of Pastor Craig's books. I think this one is my favorite. I'm a counselor trying to teach these same principles to my clients and want to do it in a Biblically sound way. This book is going to become one of my "go tos!" Powerful and Biblical. Someday I would love to have lunch with this amazing couple!

Fun, relatable, simple, game changer

This book was great. Lately I have been diving a lot into the mind and power of the spoken word reading books like Switch on Your Brain and Hung by the Tongue. If you are looking for another tool in your toolbelt call to combat the enemy and retake control over your life, then I highly recommend giving this a listen.

Great message for everyone

I wish I’d understood what Craig reveals and teaches (and practiced it) when I was 18. But the best tome to change your mind is today regardless of your age. This is a must read (listen) for all. Well done Craig!

A great listen. Can be life changing if you let it

I listened through it the once so far. Craig is excellent at clearly bringing the message across. He is down to earth, realistic and entertaining. he also brings God's word straight to your heart.

I will now listen a second time, but go through the PDF with round two. I think there's loads more for me to learn here.

Thank you Craig

Ok

Good audio quality. Overall Christian book, to be sincere I think I look to an unicorn when I read books of Christians mental health, the story behind are all told by a old male Christian so didn't worked for me. Don't get me wrong is a good book, but because I read so many and I am looking for something different, didn't provide me what I was looking for. All content for me feels very generic and something that somebody said, also doesn't take in consideration other religions science studies that reached the same results so I don't like a lot this impartial reading. I think the world is changing and some things need to be updated, I really hope tradicional Christian thinking will not longer exist in some year. He also mentioned in this book that God also asked us to renew or mind and think for ourselves, but I see he is trying so now was just not enough for me.

Encouraging, honest and useful

I found Craig’s book to be so encouraging. I love this book. I can see some changes already in myself from implementing Craig’s steps. His great narration with some humour in parts gives a really enjoyable experience. I’m very grateful to Craig for this book.

The Book to transform Lives

Firstly I love the transparency of vulnerability Craig shows in this book, where we all have as human beings. Seriously, I started reading the book more for leading and help people around me and I ended up not only empowering people but growing so much in God’s principles, neuroscience and many aspects to reframe of my life. This book is to everybody in different stages of life. God keep blessing your ministry .

Passionate delivery and a crucial message

Gritty, passionate, funny and relevant. Christ is at the heart of this book and is evident in the content, which includes much testimony - no greater way of making a point. A great tool for anybody who wants to do better, be better, and it all starts in your mind.
