An honest look at the struggle with lust and finding real victory in Christ!

This is the type of book that must be read slowly and thoughtfully, since every page is loaded with incredible information and Scripture references. Mr. Gallagher shares his own story of struggle and the way the Lord delivered him. He does not water down the sin aspect, but the overall feeling of the book is one of hope and encouragement. If you are struggling with lust, this just might be the book God uses (after His Word of course) to change your heart and put it away for good!!


At the Alter of Sexual Idolatry

The natural tendency of mankind from the fall of Adam and Eve, is to do what ever feels good. Men and women then wonder how did I get into this sinful state of rebellion or they take the other road and have zero respect for their body's or those they bring into their game of sexual promiscuity. This book explains Sexual Idolatry and falls into line with Sex and Romance Addiction. The word addiction is used so much in this day, that a person might think, they can't help themselves and all the problems are out of their control. That is a lie, Satan loves to convince believers and non believers that Godly living is not a part of this earth.

It is true lust is all around and sells anything. Easton says [on page 39] of lust "sinful longing; the inward sin which leads to the falling away from God." God made us for an intimate relationship with Him and a loving spouse, this is God's desire for his children to fullful the plan God set out from the begining of time. Some may think only men have trouble with lust and sexual addictions, that is one more lie. Sin is not a respector of gender, Satan's only desire is to bring the world to believe any desire is OK as long as the two are in agreement and supposedly their sin will not hurt anyone else. Once more that is a lie straight from hell. Everything we say and do will affect all those around us, and the circle continues to grow and consume all in it's surroundings. I highly suggest counselors read this work, it is writen well.

This book has cleared things up for this guy. Any man who has trouble with

porn or women needs to read this book and do what God say. I highly advise

that pastors add this book to their resources. This book is outstanding for

what it shares for men or boy's to do in case their slaves to porn and it's

grip on men in our times

Best Resource for Purity I've stumbled upon

Having read almost every book I can find on the subject I can say that this book is the best out there. It describes the problem and challenges you. He gives helpful insight to vividly expose the lie of the problem and then gives you comfort and encouragement from his own life. Many examples of different situations this problem could take year are sobering in themselves. He knows his subject and the pattern of the sin. We have over 30 people using this book in our addictions group at our church, and all agree it is what happens and it is telling the truth unapologetically. The biblical truth present here has kept me from hurting myself with this sin over and over again. Thanks Steve for this book!

If you are going to buy any book, buy this one first then let the others be soft/unhelpful towards you. If you are struggling with this, you need to be told the truth more often than comforted, so buy the book! I would also encourage the workbook, so you have to write down the truth that you read. Your heart will not want to accept the truth the first time around.
