“With the exegetical precision of John Owen and the practical animation of John Bunyan, Wayne Mack and Joshua Mack make one of the most neglected and misunderstood doctrines today— the mortification of sin—accessible and livable. No pastor, church leader, or member can afford to ignore this title!” — Jerry Marcellino, Pastor and moderator of the Fellowship of Independent Reformed Evangelicals (FIRE)
“Sin is not a popular subject, but just as a cancer patient needs to learn about his disease, every sinner needs to understand the seriousness of his condition and its cure. The Macks’ treatment of sin is thorough, biblical, and practical.” — James Newheiser, Pastor, Grace Bible Church, Escondido, CA
“A Fight to the Death is well written, practical, and above all, biblical. The Macks do not want you to become spiritual road kill. Buy it, use it, and you will, by God’s grace, defeat the unholy trinity of the world, the flesh, and the devil. The right read about an eternally important choice.” — George C. Scipione, Director of the Institute for Biblical Counseling and Discipleship
