About the Book

Come, listen, and learn from a man who bears his soul with honesty, courage and conviction. Joel Christiansen's story will plunge you into the pit of his miserable drug addiction and its destructive ripple effect. He describes the grip of his "lover" that reduced him to ashes. Only when he and his lover are confronted and unmasked does his new life begin to rise from those ashes.

With refreshing candor, Joel will let you see, taste, touch, smell and feel this lethal "lover" that enslaved his mind, body, and spirit.

His story will touch, challenge, and change many lives. It will bring hope, inspire courage and move people to action. His radical honesty calls each of us to take a deeper look at what kind of "lovers" we have within ourselves.
