A resource for addiction support and recovery groups, Grace-Based Recovery: A Safe Place to Heal and Grow 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, himself has nearly 20 years of personal recovery experience and over 15 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.

This small group study and practical resource invites readers to develop the biblical literacy needed to share the gospel simply and effectively and without formulas. Designed for Christians who want to put their faith into action and grow in biblical knowledge, Gospel 101: Learning, Living, and Sharing the Gospel explains the foundational gospel truth with digestible amounts of Scripture without diluting the gospel message.
Christians wondering how to share the gospel effectively will find Scripture-based content on understanding the background of the gospel rather than a one-size-fits-all approach to evangelism. Rather than giving an information overload or too-simplistic view of the gospel, Gospel 101 communicates the good news of Jesus in a clear, understanding, and compelling way, inviting readers to grow in gospel fluency, gospel community, and gospel action. Practical, small group study layout helps readers experience the transforming power of new life in Jesus.
This flexible resource serves as an introductory-level course on the “big picture” message of redemption. It equips church and ministry leaders with the language of the gospel to confidently move past the fear of sharing their faith by living out of gospel community and Scripture knowledge. By defining the gospel and why it matters, readers will learn about God, humanity, Christ, justification, our response, and the implications of the gospel through pointed questions, Scripture reading assignments, and encouraged discussions.
Gospel 101 will provide life-changing biblical truths so readers can speak gospel truth into everyday conversations with friends, family, children, coworkers, neighbors, fellow students, and others.
