Done with That – Escape the Struggle of Your Old Life by Bob Merritt [REVIEW]


The Bible says the old life is gone and the new life has come (see 2 Cor. 5:17). But we still sin; still get angry, arrogant, and greedy. Sin destroys everything in its path, yet it’s also kind of fun and quite compelling. It often has us holding on to parts of the old life instead of embracing the new life we’ve been promised.
In Done with That, Pastor Bob Merritt exposes the inner battle we all fight with sin. He exposes the cycle of failure and loss and shows readers that no matter how many setbacks they’ve experienced, there is a way to enjoy a new and better life in Christ. 


Until I read this book, I didn’t realize how much spiritual, emotional & relational work that I still have to do. Each chapter challenged me in new ways.

I truly appreciate the author’s honest & humility as he expresses his humanity. For instance, “Anytime we give in to our sinful nature, something in our lives suffers and dies a little.”

“The Bible is GPS sent by God, and it must be plugged into our brains to help us navigate this ride of life.”

“Ultimately, living the new life is really about living an ever-newer life. It’s about progress—not perfection.”

This book would be good for individual or group study.

I received this book FREE from the author, publisher, distributor, or other source. My only obligation is to provide a fair and honest review.
