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.

Exterminators

This book touched home in so many ways. For starters, having the writer visit our church gives you a sense of familiarity with the person. Hearing his story conveyed the realness and the authenticity of the person we met. Great read and I'll definitely be referencing it for follow up on how to clean the cobwebs and kill the spiders in my life.

We All Have...Spiders!

I enjoyed this book. It helped to tie into the message Carlos gave at Victory Church OKC Men conference. I appreciate the transparency as a man who knows God. We all have Spiders, now we have to take action to rid them.

What I needed to hear

I have been struggling with anger for most of my life. I can see where God has been guiding me (when I let Him) throughout my life to deal with the things that have created this anger. When I heard about Carlos Whittaker, it was in an announcement at church on a Sunday morning a couple of weeks ago, I had no idea who he was. I didn’t even know that he was a famous person 😂. I went looking for information on him but didn’t dig too deep. The very next morning, a podcast (Shut the Should Up) that I listen to dropped their episode and Carlos Whittaker was their guest, speaking about killing the spider. I was floored. I immediately went to Audible to download the book because I knew in my heart that I needed to know how to kill the spider that was messing up my relationship with God and with others. I haven’t dealt with the spider yet but after reading/listening to this book I feel prepared to do battle with God as my guide.

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.

Life transformation

I picked up this book on vacation thinking I have time to really hear what Carlos has to say about freedom. I was raised in the church but There was so much truth on a new level. There is a lot of things in this book I can use going forward in my walk with the lord. Thanks Carlos for your vulnerability to bring those along with you on your journey.
