Item description for Winning the Battle for Sexual Purity: Straight Talk with Men about Love and Life (DVD) by Christopher West...
Overview In this straight talk with men, Christopher West addresses the struggles in the area of sexual purity and lust that many, if not most, men face on a regular basis. West explains how the devil takes what is most sacred and good and makes it profane through creating a distorted picture and offering it to the culture. This is why Satan particulary attacks woman-because in her bearing of new life she reveals the very mystery of God. Beginning with a study of the "two Adams", West explains why the first Adam failed to love his bride rightly and turn to God for hope and healing, while the second Adam (Jesus Christ) loved his bride (the Church) rightly by giving up his life for her. West explains how the mission of every man is to lay down his life for woman, which will bring meaning and purpose to his life and give woman her due glory. Through the context of his own candid story and struggles in this area as a young man, West closes by offering a practical battle plan for not only avoiding lust, but actually experiencing a victory in viewing others purely. He shows how we can transform the view of woman as an object for selfish gratification to a deep and lasting view of woman as a glorious creation of God.
Community Description Candidly sharing his own struggles with lust and his ongoing journey towards purity, Christopher West outlines a practical "battle plan" for men to experience the redemption of their sexuality in Christ. Redemption leads to the inner transformation of sexual desire away from self-gratification (lust) and towards self-donation (love).

This CD is Fantastic! It gives a unique perspective on common attitudes about sex by men. Christopher West is an amazing writer and speaker on the subject of Pope John Paul II "Theology of the Body". With honesty, frankness and through true confessions of his life Christopher relays information about the spirituality of Christian men in today's society. Anyone (male or female) who has or used to have issues with sexual purity in their lives needs to listen to this CD. I intend to have my husband and 3 young adult children (boys 20 and 17 years old, girl 19 years old) to listen to this CD!
Winning the battle for Sexual Purity Jul 31, 2006
The content was authentic: very honest with opinions but not imposing. Helpful in gaining insight to why we have these basic instincts and how to live with them in a freeing and controlled way. Definitely for an adult audience. Though it is aimed at men, as a woman listening in I found it helpful to understand men better and to me more compassionate toward them. Also helpful in how I can relate to my teenage son in this area in a helpful and positive way.
