About the Author

Dr. Morris graduated from Pacific Coast Baptist Bible College and Anchor Theological Seminary. He received his Ph.D. in Biblical Studies from Louisiana Baptist University. Since 1978, he and his wife, Debbie, have served as missionaries in Chiapas, Mexico.

He presently pastors the Baptist church he founded in Tuxtla Gutiérrez and oversees several other churches, missions, and a Christian school. Much of his time is dedicated to training Hispanic pastors and counseling.



This book by Dr. Daniel Morris is a tremendous writing, dealing with temptation and how to overcome it.  The research is very thorough and includes a practical description of temptation and its effect on the believer.  I recommend this book not only for those overcome with temptations, but also as a tool in helping someone else who is dealing with these issues.  He clearly explains how Satan uses temptation to make us fall.  What I like the most is the fact that he uses God’s Word, the Bible, as the basis for his explanation of temptation and the solution for overcoming it.

I appreciate Dan Morris’ book on this needful topic for several reasons, not the least of which is the author’s own decades of faithfulness in the Lord’s work. Those serving on the front lines of spiritual battle – as this author has done as a missionary for over a quarter of a century – know firsthand the onslaught of Satan and the need for biblical strategies to live in victory. In this book, you will find a detailed, thorough study of both.

From early college days forty years ago, I have known Dr. Daniel Morris. He was a very conscientious student, well focused in life. During the past forty years, he has been extremely dedicated, and God has given him many successful ministries. Dr. Morris writes from his knowledge of the Word of God and his experience in teaching. You will be blessed, inspired, and determined to do a greater work for the Lord as you read his writings.
