A resource for addiction support and recovery groups, Grace-Based Recovery is a small-group study designed to help people suffering from addiction and those close to them understand God’s grace and why it is the only path to true freedom.
With nine easy-to-use lessons, Grace-Based Recovery highlights the significant differences between a performance-based approach to recovery and a grace-based approach, and establishes a safe environment where addicts can learn from their mistakes rather than be punished for them. Through practical exercises, readers will learn the principles of grace and how to apply those truths to the false beliefs that have held them captive. Participants will be encouraged to see freedom from addiction as a lifelong process and to live without shame and fear as they grow, stumble, grow again, and, by God’s grace, change.
Author Jonathan Daugherty, the founder of BeBroken Ministries and the popular podcast and radio show Pure Sex, has nearly twenty years of personal recovery experience and over fifteen years of professional recovery experience. Nearly five years into his own recovery journey, he realized that simply behaving well could never truly liberate him, and that only God’s grace could cause that kind of transformation.
In a world that is finding itself increasingly more addicted, Grace-Based Recovery carries the timely message of the grace, self-worth, and confidence found in Jesus Christ and tears down the strongholds of addiction in our lives.
"Grace-Based Recovery is a comprehensive package for groups seeking a ready-made guide to overcoming sexual brokenness. Leaders will appreciate how easy it is to use, as groups are led through the ultimate Solution found in Christ, the grace of God."
Ron DeHaas, CEO, Covenant Eyes
"Far too many of us have struggled in our efforts because we have missed the grace of God and the role it plays in our ongoing recovery. Jonathan Daugherty doesn't write from a theoretical perspective but as one who has experienced and lives out of the amazing grace of God."
Troy Haas, Executive Director, HopeQuest Ministry Group; author of Building for Freedom and Walking in Freedom
"Daugherty's approach aligns with the good news of Christ and contains principles that are about transformation, not mere 'spiritual effort,' which fails when our own strength runs out. Further, he speaks of true grace not cheap grace. Those in the recovery journey will benefit from the thoughtful, careful guidance in this user-friendly tool."
Geremy F. Keeton, Senior Director of Counseling Services, Focus on the Family
"What Jonathan has given the body of Christ in Grace-Based Recovery is, frankly, amazing. These are invaluable insights born of scriptural depth, years of working with real people and things he could only learn from Jesus."
Russell Willingham, Director of Fresno New Creation Ministries, author of Breaking Free: Understanding Sexual Addiction & the Healing Power of Jesus
