There is a question that every Christian would do well to ask: Day by day, who or what control my life? Control can be godly or ungodly, depending on whose authority is in place. Its harmful to us when it undermines our freedom to choose what is right. For many of us, the Lordship of Jesus is continually being challenged by ungodly controls that come from people, past and present situations, and even from within ourselves fear being one of the key issues.

The enemy is seductive and deceptive. His primary aim is to gain control through our sinful beliefs and behaviors. When control is not in the hands of God its in the hands of the kingdom of darkness. Wrongful control spoils relationships and seriously damages lives. This book takes a closer look at how and why people control. Controlling behavior is always a symptom of a deeper issue; its a sinful response to inner wounding and insecurity. As God reveals the roots of control we can choose to forgive those who have hurt us and receive His comfort, His acceptance and His healing at a deep level. This book is therefore ideal for those who want to understand ungodly control in their own lives or in others and find the keys to walking in freedom.

About the Author

David Cross is the Regional Director for Ellel Ministries in Western Europe. He is based at Ellel Glyndley Manor. He qualified as a civil engineer but developed many life skills in a most varied working career, which included leading ski-tours in the Scottish Highlands. Despite fulfillment at work David found himself gradually more and more disillusioned with the ethos of self sufficiency on which he had based his life up until that point.

A change in direction came when he was converted in Hong Kong in the early 1980s and he eagerly began to follow Jesus. On returning to the UK in 1984 he became an elder in the Church of Scotland. Then in 1993, he and his wife Denise joined Ellel Ministries. Davids clear and authoritative teaching from Gods Word has brought understanding and healing to many who have been confused and damaged by the ideologies of todays world.
