Best Single Resource for Men's Sexual Temptations Oct 15, 2008
I've read several books addressing the sexual temptations men face, but none of them are as helpful as this one. Author Bill Perkins talks frankly with men about sexual struggles, admitting the struggles, finding freedom, and then remaining free. He has one chapter near the end of the book for the wives of men who may be struggling, which gives clearer insight as to why men often behave as they do. While clearly condemning sin, the author focuses upon the believing man remembering his new identity in Christ. I recommend this title be on every Christian man's bookshelf.

Speaks to the Heart of the issue Feb 11, 2008
As a Marriage & Family Therapist, and an ordained Pastor, I have been hard pressed to find a resource for men, and marriages, that does not approach the issue of sexual temptation from a shame-based perspective. The The majority of my professional experience is in dealing with sexual issues and recovery as they impact marriage's and families.
Unfortunately, the American Church has historically done Christian men and women a disservice by viewing sexual sins as 'worse than' other sins, and therefore to be kept hidden. The typical message has been, "don't do it...", and that simply does not work in practical every-day life. There is not a marriage that is not impacted by sexual temptation, and it is no secret how men will fall morally in our culture.
The key from Perkins is this, "the absence of (sexual) temptation is NOT victory!" With a biblically solid foundation, a framework for understanding, and not shaming men for being tempted, is laid out with practical application.
If we ignore temptation, we will find another outlet to gratify our sinful desires, whether that is through sexual temptation, working too much, chemical dependency or any other myriad of unhealthy coping behaviors and choices.
To be a real man, we must be honest with ourselves, our wives, and other men in supportive relationships who are 'in the trenches' with us. Perkins has effectively laid out what should be the foundational work for every man and married couple to implement as they seek to live healthy and whole lives, fully equipped, and faithfully following Christ in our culture today!
Very Helpful Jan 24, 2008
I am personally not going through Sexual addictions or temptation problems at this time and have always been able, By the grace of God, to be accountable to my wife and men in my church and avoid any acting out of any kind of sexual temptation. I found it very helpful in other struggles I have. I believe that even though the focus of this book was on sexual sin and temptation, I felt that I still related to it so closely. That is because of the approach to make Christ the center of all things is so powerful in every word and every chapter that I can take the same principles from ritualistic behavior to acting out in my own struggles of worry and frustration and anger, which is the sin that besets me in my life and is equally as destructive as sexual sin. I recommend this book to any man going through anything.
When Good Men are tempted Dec 28, 2007
This is an excellent read for any man struggling with sensual lust. Looking, thinking or acting out, this is meat in due season. It is biblically based and shows the steps of how to tap into the power God has provided for us to become the men in Christ He wants us to become. Thanks Pastor Bill
