This book offers eternal hope and practical help while describing five different heart motives of the gambler, and six steps to a practical plan of action for change.

Those who struggle with gambling, as well as biblical counselors who help them, will gain "Hope and Help" from the biblical approach to dealing with the heart issues of gambling.
