    Since the Garden of Eden sin has ravaged people’s lives, leaving behind a plethora of troubling problems such as anxieties, fears, insecurities, confusion, unbelief, bitterness, sexual hang-ups, and even addictions. Most people look for answers in all the wrong places. They ought to look within. They ought to look at i. i is the “self-life.” i is the core of the fallen human nature. i is the realm where sin grows and flourishes. i: the root of sin exposed unravels the mystery of the corrupted human nature, and convincingly proves that all of man’s struggles with sin can be traced to the pride-driven “self-life” that emerges from it. Rather than relying on trendy quick-fixes, this book digs deeply into the treasures of Scripture to provide struggling believers everything they need to deal with their problems at the root level: the inescapable, ever-present i.

    “There is a common thread that runs through every broken relationship, international war, church split, ministry scandal, or social conflict: Human pride. It is so insidious that we seldom see it in ourselves, so universal that no heart is immune, and so destructive that no nation is safe from its fury. While the topic of pride is central to the human condition, it is one of the least discussed sins in the Christian world. Steve Gallagher extracts the truth of this topic with the precision of a skilled surgeon. His goal is to identify the roots and fruits of this heart condition, that God truly hates, and enable us, through the power of the Holy Spirit, to root it out and replace it with Christ’s humble nature. If you want to gain victory over sin, you will never be able to do so without dealing a death-blow to your pride. You need the truth contained in this book more than you need air, for it can save your very soul. This book is the definitive work on the topic of pride for our day. I highly recommend you read this vital work!”

    Israel Wayne, Christian Worldview

    “‘I can do all things.’ These five words introduce one of the most-often quoted verses from Scripture (Philippians 4:13) but they also form the thesis for one of the most toxic and least talked about issues in the American church— pride. In clear, direct language, Pastor Steve Gallagher surgically exposes the self-absorbed, ‘what’s in it for me’ attitude that lurks within every human heart. ‘i’ is a gut-punch to the selfie-soaked world we live in. Pastor Gallagher gives his readers a clear diagnosis for that which ails us and a posture for the cure: flat on our faces, bowed low before Almighty God.”

    Chris McKenna, Covenant Eyes

    “Searching in the Bible for the words ‘pride’ and ‘proud’ reveals a startling fact—the power of pride is the power of personal destruction. It has been said that the cross of Christ is the big ‘I’ crossed out. In this book, author Steve Gallagher faces the problem of the big ‘I’ and pride. This is a must read for pastors, biblical counselors, and others called to Christian ministry. It is also a place for those who suffer from personal destruction to begin the journey away from stumbling to one of victory through the cross of Christ.”

    Dennis D. Frey, Th.D., President, Master’s International University of Divinity

    “Steve leaves no stone unturned. The only question you have to answer as you read this book is if you want to change. If you do, Steve’s book will help you accomplish that great goal. Steve tackles pride from every possible angle and follows the ‘put off ’ section by giving you the Bible’s answer, which is the hope found in ‘putting on’ the humility of Christ. His book is full of Scripture, which will equip the new Christian while affirming the faith of the tenured soldier for Christ. You will not be disappointed for addressing our problem with pride.”

    Rick Thomas, Author, Podcaster, and Speaker

    “In i: the root of sin exposed, Steve Gallagher cuts through the thick of our sinful tendencies/habits and gets to the root of the matter by offering a lucid look at what separates us from enjoying our gracious God. In this book, Gallagher walks the reader through original pride/sin, explains how pride manifests itself in various ways, offers vivid examples from both Scriptural and modern times, warns of pride’s inevitable end, and offers the vital solution to our pride/sinful nature. This natural pride is humanity’s greatest delusion—the epitome of our deceptive nature—and is also the cause of our greatest destruction. If you are looking for a book with a biblical perspective on pride, I encourage you to read this enlightening book.”

    Dr. Daniel R. Berger II, Author of Mental Illness (Vol. 1-5), Director of Alethia International Ministries

    “In Steve Gallagher’s new book, i: the root of sin exposed, the reader is introduced to the root of all sin: pride. He successfully shows how the faithful follower of Christ can change from one who worships self to one who pleases the Lord through a life of humility. By carefully defining his terms and illustrating the various forms pride takes, Gallagher helps those who truly want to follow Christ to enjoy a much closer relationship with God and thus fulfill the great commandment to love God with all that we are, heart, soul, mind and strength. I heartily recommend this book to every believer who desires to live to the glory of God.”
