Real and Honest - Excellent if you're young and struggling

I highly recommend this book if your young and struggling. I'm a 24 year old male training to be a youth pastor, and struggling with lust is very fraustrating to me. I've tried many times to clean it up on my own...but to no avail. Reading "Every Young Man's Battle" was very helpful in helping me understand my struggles, and gave practical specific steps on how to guard against temptation and lust. The book was CLEARLY written by someone who's "been there" before us. It's straight-shooting, blunt, and real. And when your dealing with something as spiritually disabling as lust - you want advice that's gonna get results fast. God has done a great thing through these authors - I highly recommend this book!

Powerful

After the Bible, this book is the best thing that a young man can and should read. I am 16 years old, and this book gave me powerful ammunition against the temptations of living in an "anything goes" sexually saturated culture. I beg you, do not be swayed by those who claim that this book is "way off" or poorly written. Sadly, many Christian leaders and advisors have begun to lower their standards of sexual purity. The Bible is very clear, no hint of sexual immorality may be present. This sounds like a tall order, but believe me you will be surprised at what a few simple steps will accomplish. As for the claims that the authors don't understand the biblical meaning of sexual immorality, they are rubbish. It is sad that people would attempt to discount the book's meaning by saying that Paul's difinition of immorality included many arcane Jewish practices that have no relevance today. It was Paul himself that wrote in his many epistles about the importance of realizing the freedom from the ancient customs of the Jewish law that we now posess in Jesus Christ. Basic Bible study will yield that knowledge. Also, the claims that the authors are in fact tempting readers by recounting their past experiences are equally invalid. Whoever makes that statement must not understand the relief that goes along with knowing that you are not alone, nor are you demon posessed for having the desires that you do. Teens and ministers alike, read this book. You owe it to yourself and your relationship with Jesus Christ. God bless you in your future walk with Christ.

Great Christian Gift from Father to Son!

This book is the authors' extensive revision of their earlier work "Every Man's Battle." The initial book was not very helpful or accurate for older, married men. This book however, is right on target for the needs and situation of young, single men in today's sexually-charged society. The theme of this work is obviously maintaining sexual purity. The authors define authentic manhood from a biblical perspective, and then offer strategies for young men to achieve it. Substantial attention is given to the practice of self-satisfaction and sexual release, with a commendable mixture of promoting absolute abstinence while at the same time offering empathetic encouragement.The authors then present several techniques to channel visual activity and mental thought processes in a godly direction. Perhaps the best parts of this book, unique to this version, are the two final sections. The first section addresses sexual honor, giving a young man the perspective of a young woman's father. It also provides insight as to what young Christian women really seek in a man, which is far different than what most young Christian men would think. It then closes with a challenge to live a life that is sexually pure. The second section briefly addresses young men struggling with homosexual desires, encouraging them to use the same principles to achieve biblical, heterosexual purity.I recommend this book highly to Christian fathers with teenage sons, youth pastors, and young single men. If you or a young man close to you is struggling, then this volume will undoubtedly be a great help. This small investment is sure to yield huge dividends!

Finally, straight talk from real people

Arterburn & Stoeker do an excellent job of talking straight to the single male. Though the book is entitled Every Young Man's Battle this book deals with the very real sexual struggles of every man that is single. I would highly recommend this book to all men ages, High School on up. The book finally gives straight talk on the issues of masturbation, soft porn, the wandering eyes, and the issues of lust in our culture. In a world where sexual images and humor crowd our airwaves from radio to television this is a needed tool to stay the battle.This is not just a book on staying pure, but one that gives real resons for trying to do so. Testimonies of men who have struggled, fallen, and then regained their purity are given throughout this book. I would encourage every man to read this book, and encourage you to buy extras to share with others who may also be struggling to remain pure.
