Summary

Carlos Whittaker equips you with practical steps to destroying the roots of your deep-seated habits so you can get rid of what's holding you back and embrace true freedom in Christ.

Are you tired of trying to live for Christ - only to fail time and time again with the same old behaviors? Do you pray for guidance, ask for deliverance, and vow to do better, yet fail to progress?

As an author, speaker, podcaster, and communicator for our time, Carlos has lived much of his spiritual life in the spotlight. But, like any Christian, his faith story has had its ups and downs. He spent decades trying to figure out how to be a "better person". Time and time again, he strived for holiness, only to get caught in a cycle of destructive habits, behaviors, and thought patterns. But the buck stops here. Or, rather, the spider is killed here.

Throughout Kill the Spider, Carlos walks you through the key aspects of killing the spiders in your own life, including:

  • Confessing the lies you've believed
  • Renouncing the lies that have held you back
  • Rejecting every lie that Jesus has exposed to you
  • Replacing these lies with Jesus's truth

In Kill the Spider, Carlos shares everything from hilarious, self-deprecating stories to passion-filled wisdom to teach us that we can't just clear away the pesky cobwebs. Instead, we need to find the spider - the source of the issue - and take it out entirely.

Carlos offers a breath of fresh air to any believer looking to finally step into the freedom in Christ. Take a seat, start listening to your book, and grab a shoe. We're going on a spider hunt.

It helped me so much

I finished the book within days of receiving. I didn't want to put it down. I felt God moving me from the get go. I had a bunch of cobwebs and just a few spiders but I really needed the end of your book. The releasing things to God were so easy and necessary but my new found Trust was what I held dear. I got saved at 5 and I'm 32 dealing with a crazy season but I have a mountain to climb and I pray for God's help daily as before I felt only talking to him every now and again. Thank you for your words.

Don't pass this one by...

A friend recommended this book. He was so enthused by how it challenged him that he's been recommending it to others for a couple of years. Now I know why... This book was written for someone like me...been a Christian for decades, knows the lingo and does the rituals. Everyone thinks I'm really spiritual. Truth is, I have spiders that weave cobwebs of anger, doubt, and anxiety. This book is about authenticity and that is hard to admit that I'm not as authentic as I thought I was. I'm challenged to pursue God despite all the feelings of that I'm inadequate and unworthy for God to give me a moment of His time. This book gives immediate and applicable steps to trust the process of killing my spider...yes, its a process... I'm indebted to my friend for thinking of me and encouraging me to read it. One of the most impactful books I've ever read.

Spider Hunt

Have you ever found yourself cleaning out cobwebs in your life only to find that the spider who makes them is still alive, well, and making more messes? Carlos defines cobwebs as things in your life that we use as medications like alcohol, obsession with work, pornography, and bingeing on food or Netflix. These are symptoms of a deeper problem. The goal of the book is to help you identify and kill your spider- the lie you bought into that is causing pain in your life. Carlos’s lie was this - God has abandoned me. Searching for your spider takes courage, intentionality, and help. Some of us have avoided facing our spiders for so long and fed them so well that they are epic monsters. The only way to truly heal is to hunt and kill them. Each chapter of the book includes reflection questions to help on the journey. Thanks to Aubrey for recommending this book.

This book is for people who hate spiders, and those seeking deep healing.
(Rated PG, Score 8/10)
