About-

Most people don't plan to have an affair. And most of them think it could never happen to them. Because they don't recognize the subtle danger signs, they can suddenly find themselves in a dangerous relationship -- with devastating consequences.

It can start off innocently enough. Someone cares enough to pay attention. To look into your eyes. To touch with understanding. Even with the best of motives, it's easy to slip gradually, almost imperceptibly, into the snare of an emotional or sexual entanglement.

In The Snare -- a frank, sometimes startling book -- Lois Mowday Rabey gives us a clear look at the paths to sexual immorality using real-life accounts of Christians who have struggled and failed. She returns repeatedly to the single focus that conquers temptation: a strong personal relationship with Christ. And she outlines the clear guidelines in Scripture for establishing healthy relationships in today's "value neutral" world.

Rabey offers specific advice for conduct in the workplace (where many affairs begin), for gracefully getting out of compromising situations, and for single adults (whether never married, widowed, or divorced).

"We shouldn't push the issue of immorality aside because we seem to be okay, because we feel secure in the center of an evangelical church, have daily devotions, and memorize Scripture," writes Rabey. "We can have all these right practices and more, yet still fall."

Emotional and sexual entanglements are a snare. They are so enticing, so promising, and they offer something that seems so good. Lois Mowday Rabey helps us see them for the dangerous trap they really are. And she offers help to those wanting to avoid the snare or escape its grasp.

Whether you work with people who struggle with this issue or you just want to protect yourself against the subtle snare of immorality, 'The Snare' is an invaluable resource.
