If I have a new life in Christ, why do I still say and do the same old things; why can’t I overcome my bad habits?” In Done with That, Pastor Bob Merritt shows the reader how to overcome old patterns and live a freer kind of life.
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.
“In Done with That, Bob Merritt shows that less means more. Less regret means more joy. Less loneliness means more belonging. Less angst means more contentment. Bob’s hard-fought battle will help you win yours.”
—Mark Batterson, New York Times bestselling author of The Circle Maker; lead pastor, National Community Church
“Freedom in Christ is one of the most powerful gifts of the gospel. But knowledge of that freedom and walking in that freedom are two different things. This book moves us from knowledge to action, with practical application for every person who is truly ready to move. Thank you, Bob, for living that out in your own life and showing us the way for ourselves.”

“People talk a lot about change these days, but here’s the truth. No one ever really changes until it gets too painful to stay where they are. In other words, they have to get sick and tired of being sick and tired! If that’s where you are, then Pastor Bob Merritt’s Done with That is absolutely the book for you. It’s a great prescription for turning your life around and reviving your walk with God.”
