Publisher's Summary

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, pastor, and blogger at Ragamuffin Soul, Carlos has lived much of his spiritual life in the spotlight. But like any Christian, his faith story has 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 the web of destructive habits, behaviors, and thought patterns.

But the buck stops here. Or, rather, the spider is killed here.

In Kill the Spider, Carlos shares personal material ranging from hilarious, self-deprecating stories to passion-filled wisdom - to show others it's not enough to try to "stop sinning". He teaches that knocking out deep-rooted habits and issues comes by treating the issue, not just the symptoms.

With transparency, humor, and vulnerable stories, Carlos offers a breath of fresh air to any believer looking to finally step into the freedom in Christ. So sit down. Start listening to the book. And grab a shoe. We're going on a spider hunt.

Insightful

You have to be willing to do the work to be healed. Just reading a book will not do anything for you or your situation.

OUTSTANDING !!!

I found out about this book through a small group at Church. I'm so glad I did! i love how i could relate to the struggles and challenges of the Arthur. it has open my eyes to how we tidy up our lives, cleaning cobweb after cobweb for appearance, when truthfully we need to kill the spider causing the cobwebs. what's your spider?

Heavy....in the best ways

FINALLY! A book about the hard stuff and what to do about it from someone who actually gets it! And what gives Los the right to speak on such things? He’s lived it and he’s honest about it. He’s gut wrenchingly truthful, not just about what he struggles with but about how freakin hard it is to work through. But you finish with hope and encouragement that you can and will kill spiders. Read it. Read it again with your notebook and a pen. Give it to a friend.
