Hickey and Bowling note that some families are plagued by generational curses, addictions and negative behaviors. They highlight the example of Jonathan Edwards and Max Jukes, both of whom were contemporaries. While Edwards’s family tree is lined with college graduates, professors, government officials and ministers, Jukes’s is filled with poverty, murderers, drunkards and prostitutes. Drawing on scriptural background, the authors argue that generational curses are very real, but no matter how dark the past, God can use you to turn the situation around, help heal wounds and turn defeat into victory. The book is divided into 16 chapters that often read like sermonettes. “Outrun What Runs in Your Family” offers five practical steps to break free from sin — acknowledging and confessing the sin of your forefathers, forgiving family members, confessing your own faults and asking for forgiveness, submitting to God’s will, and declaring your faith with the authority of Jesus’ name. The teaching is filled with Bible references and encourages readers to boldly reclaim back what has been lost in the past.
