Item Description...
There is a single force that manifests itself in our spiritual dysfunction-what used to be called "the flesh." When Jesus met the woman caught in adultery, he first told her "Neither do I condemn you." Only then did he instruct her to go and sin no more. Most Christians reverse this order. They try to "sin no more," hoping to merit freedom from condemnation. If we try to fight against our lower natures-the brat and control freak-we will fail. "That's picking the wrong fight," writes Bill Giovannetti. "The correct fight is the fight of faith. It is the fight to keep on believing in God and his power."

Publishers Description
This shrewd and joyful book will help believers-at any stage in their spiritual journeys-encounter the real power of grace afresh.

A MUST READ, life changing book!  May 25, 2010
This book will speak to any reader as we all have an inner mess of some type ready to wage war on whomever is in its path. It's packed with humor, honesty and real help. It changed my life and made me realize I'm not a hopeless mess! Thank you so much for your honest revelations, Bill!

How to Keep Your Inner Mess From Trashing Your Outer World
Bill Giovanetti
Monarch Books

Every person has a cast of ugly characters riding in the back of their bus. If you're not careful, they'll consume and control your life.

That's the premise of a refreshing book by author and pastor, Bill Giovanetti. Bill is pastor of Neighborhood Church of Redding California.

The characters Bill describes--Inner Saint, Inn CIA Agent, Inner Legalist, Inner Idiot, Inner Flirt (his list covers just about every sin)--together they make up your Inner Mess. And Giovanetti makes the case that the reason Christians fail in taming their Inner Mess is because they have the wrong prescription.

Writing in a humorous yet to-the-point style, Giovanetti systematically lays out a Biblical course for allowing Jesus to control the inner life.

As a lifelong church brat, accustomed to living by lists and working out my sanctification in my own power, I found this book to be refreshing and empowering. I don't know that I've ever read a work that so accurately and biblically fleshes out the inner life.

A few times I actually closed the book and sat straight up, thinking through conclusions and theology that I'd never before considered. For instance, Bill says that we wrongly strive for WWJD--What Would Jesus Do. When we try to do what Jesus did, we fail, because only Jesus could do what Jesus did. The better way is to allow Jesus to live through us and allow His grace to flow through our lives.

Every day, Giovanetti says, we wake up to a battle. But it's not the battle we think. It's not a battle against sin or even against our flesh. It's the battle inside that says "Christ can't do something in me." In other words, the key to living out the Christian life is to have a bigger faith and it's that faith that releases the grace that empowers our lives.

He encourages us to build up our soul by immersing ourselves in the Word, in community with like-minded believers, and in Biblical preaching. All that serves to build a muscular faith, a faith that works.

I highly recommend this book for its clear, practical, sound teaching on the inner life of a believer. You won't finish this book thinking you have to do more, be more, say more. You'll finish it realizing that Jesus Christ really can do a work in and through you, despite the ugliness of those characters at the back of your bus.
A Must Read!!  Nov 20, 2009
What a unique and refreshing outlook on the Christian walk! For many of us struggling with a private shame and guilt that we can't quite achieve the perfect Christian life... and sometimes feel like we don't even qualify! We struggle in silence thinking we are alone in this! Bill, addresses all those distinctly "non-Christian" impulses we feel on a day-to-day basis and gives very practical advice on how to release the guilt, embrace Christ's incredible love for us, and live differently through the power of the Holy Spirit! Bill does so in a very frank and humorous way. This book is an easy read with many stories to illustrate as well as an on-going story line at the start of each chapter that will keep you on the edge of your seat! I highly recommend this book to anyone!
Pastor Bill has inspired me again.  Aug 28, 2009
I loved this series when I Pastor Bill preached it at our church. I wondered if there would be anything I could get from the book that I didn't get from his preaching. Happily, there was. This book can be read again and again and I will be able to gain more and different insight with each reading.
