Do you ever wonder why you keep doing things you know you shouldn't? Does life sometimes feel like one constant battle between what you know you should do and what you actually end up doing? The Obedience Option directs us to Paul's letter to the Ephesians to discover an "overwhelming faith" - a life dominating conviction that what God has for us through obedience is vastly better than anything this world has to offer. In this state a passion for God and his ways overwhelms everything else. Following God's commands becomes our joy and our lives become a consistent witness to Christ in a world that so desperately needs him.

David W. Hegg has been in pastoral ministry for 20 years and presently pastors Grace Baptist Church in Santa Clarita, California where he lives with his wife Cherylyn. He holds a D. Min from Westminster Seminary in California and is an adjunct professor at The Master’s College.



"Conventional wisdom in this pragmatic age of ours insists that it's always easier to ask forgiveness than to ask permission. Scripture says almost the exact opposite: "To obey is better than sacrifice" (1 Sam. 15:22). David Hegg has written this very helpful book to show why obedience to God is always the best of all our choices. Carefully, skillfully tracing the theme through several passages of Scripture, he shows why obedience is not merely our duty; it can also be our delight. Easy to read and yet thought provoking, this is a fine book on a supremely important topic." - John MacArthur ~ Pastor, Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, California

"Sin is serious. But you can forsake it. Let David Hegg show you why obeying God is better by far than indulging the flesh." - Collin Hansen ~ Editorial Director, The Gospel Coalition, Co-author, "A God-Sized Vision: Revival Stories That Stretch and Stir"

"Written by a veteran pastor, this well-informed book encourages and challenges us to think about crucial truths at the intersection of faith and practice." - Michael Horton ~ J. Gresham Machen Professor of Systematic Theology & Apologetics, Westminster Seminary in California, Escondido, California
