the hunger for more

I review this book with mixed motives. On the one hand, sexual addiction is so devastating to men and those who love them that almost any assault mounted on its impregnable fortress is worthy of applause. After all, the public leaders with whom I work and whose downfall resounds so loudly are grateful for almost any weapon they can add to their armament. On the other hand, this battle matters so much that one wants to wage it with appropriate cunning, keeping the eye focused on winning the war rather than lusting for the celebration that comes after every small battle. Approaches to overcoming sexual addiction can be roughly divided into two, oddly analogous to debates over economic policy or even the traffic of illegal drugs. On the one hand are the demand-side arguments. That is, in order to dry up sexual addiction, the pressing need is to find out what drives the hunger that leads men into sexual addiction. What is *missing* in lives that motivates guys to try to replace it with pornography and illicit sexual encounters? Those who take this tack typically look for long-term solutions to the *demand*. Often this approach will rely in part on counseling or therapies that help a man (and the woman he has promised to love) define the need and then seek healthy ways to fill it. On the other hand lie what I'll call the supply-side arguments. According to this approach, a man needs to interdict the supply of titillating messages, arousing inputs, and the habits to which they lead by discipline, self-protection, accountability to others, and the like. Supply-siders employ the language of self-discipline, will-power, and accountability. We're in a war, the narrative runs. Big, important things are at stake. Like any soldier in a war, you seek to evade or kill the enemy, relying on the band of brothers that got you this far alive. Arterburn's and Stoeker's EVERYMAN'S BATTLE is a battle manual for supply siders seeking to kill off an enemy that has devastated the land. Though the authors don't say so, one comes to the conclusion that they recognize a demand-side issue, but consider it to be every man's struggle, fairly conventional in its contours, and perhaps not worth fretting over in time of war. So they go on the attack. I commend them for their earnestness and I believe many men will find tactical benefit in some of their prescriptions. I wonder, however, whether the war will ever be won in just this way. The book's nineteen chapter are divided into six parts: 'Where Are We?', 'How We Got Here', 'Choosing Victory', 'Victory with Your Eyes'. 'Victory with Your Mind', and 'Victory with Your Heart'. If you have a low tolerance for cringe-worthy self-revelation, you might not want to begin your reading with this book. Both authors are familiar with what it's like to live on the brink of self-immolating sexual slavery and are not shy about baring their hearts nor even those of their wives, who weigh in by design and with regularity.

Un desafio para todo aquel que se haga llamar Hombre

Es un excelente libro, que inspira no solo por los testimonios de cambio de vida de los autores adictos al sexo por fuera de la voluntad de Dios, sino que ademas devela elementos fundamentales que todo hombre de Dios debe tener en cuenta para triunfar sobre el lazo que nos ata, muchas veces, al pecado sexual. Este libro te lleva paso a paso a traves de actitudes que te pueden llevar en victoria sobre el pecado sexual. Muchos hemos sucumbido ante el pecado sexual, pero hay un deseo en nuestro corazon de cambiar, ser diferentes para Dios... este libro puede darte las pautas que has pedido a Dios por mucho tiempo para vencer sobre el pecado sexual. Dios bendiga a estos hombres, autores de estos libros... y bendiga a cada hombre que quiera demostrar su amor a Dios a traves de la pureza sexual.

Great book , Thanks-

I recieved this book in a very timely manner. I was able to send it to my husband in Iraq and he says it is a great book. Thanks.

Guys! Read this book NOW. It will change your LIFE.

Guys you HAVE to get this. I am a recent college graduate, and I've had trouble for the past decade with the 12-letter m-word resulting from my lustful thinking and wandering eyes. Learn to train yourself in most effective ways to lose this horrible habit. If you feel the self-loathing, the tried-and-failed attempts to stop but feel addicted and almost overpowered by this habit, get this book. I was much in the same position, even being a Christian. You will receive awesome insight from stories of the 3-4 authors, including frank dicussions which you DO really NEED to hear. As Christians we must rid ourselves of every hint of sexual impurity, the book states and quotes from scripture, but it seems like such a huge battle that "I could never win." Yes you can, because I have been 'sober' for the longest time I can remember, and the strength to stop goes past weeks and weeks, not simmering down overnight like most of my other attempts. I was going at it from the wrong angle the whole time--GET THIS BOOK! It will challenge your lustful mind and through prayer and self conviction you CAN get over this--REALLY. It seems such a daunting task.. How could I possibly? I have such a huge history.. Trust me. It DOES work. Try it!Also! Do you have trouble sitting down to read a book? I can almost guarantee it will captivate you enough to read a lot in one sitting. I am completely NOT a book reader, and I finished in under a week. It is broken up into easy-to-read sections with sub-sections explaining aspects with short chapters so you won't get bored very easily. I found this book while looking up books to FEED my lustful hunger, and I can now praise God I stumbled across it. It has honestly changed my life. Contact me if you like and we can discuss it.

Winning the Battle... Finally!

This amazing book has a step by step battle plan like nothing you've ever read before. I've read many other books on this subject, but most of them deal with the reasons "why" sexual temptation is such a struggle. That is helpful to a certain extent, but this book is different. It is an ACTION book! It doesn't just talk about the "why," it gives you the "HOW!" Imagine not being overwhelmed by a barrage of mental images. Imagine becoming the person on the inside that you've been trying to portray on the outside. Imagine having no regrets and a new relationship between you and God. Imagine actually WINNING the battle. Only three weeks have passed since I read this book and my life is forever changed. I'm ordering 6 more copies for people I love, because this really is EVERY man's battle!
