Summary

Summary

Don't Gamble with Your Future.

Nearly two-thirds of the adult population in the United States gambled in the past year. For some, this represented a casual bet or a whimsical wager on winning the lottery. But for a significant and growing portion of the population, gambling isn't recreation--it's life.

Many believe that Christians are unlikely to become enslaved by gambling. Yet research indicates that Christians are drawn to gambling at the same rate as others. In Turning the Tables on Gambling, you'll explore the answers to questions such as:

• What is my risk of becoming addicted to gambling?
• Is playing the lottery or making a casual wager harmless?
• At what point does gambling become destructive?
• If gambling is a problem for me or someone I know, what can I do?

With solid insight, personal anecdotes, and practical help, Dr. Gregory Jantz describes why people of all ages and backgrounds are lured into gambling and how freedom form this destructive behavior can be found.

INCLUDES GAMBLING PERSONALITY QUESTIONNAIRE!
