Needs More... Apr 9, 2008
Where is the DVD? Where are the Flash cards? Where is the audio series? Where is the seminar? I mean when you are going to teach young people to hate themselves, let's go all the way. (Pardon the pun.)
Arterburn and Co. could have so many more "pure" people and, well, they could make so much more money- oops..I mean, they could arm young people with true hatred of their bodies, minds, and feelings. The books are a good start, but let's get real. When you are in the business of selling fear and self-loathing, you could do better than a simple couple of books, right?
No, I am not a libertarian fanatic. And no, I don't believe that anything goes. It just gets so tiring to see these moralizers who, in the name of God, tell you to loath and despise feelings that every normal boy and girl have.
It takes wisdom, caring, and insight to really make a difference in a young life, and about the last thing a fundamentalist, literalist Bible-thumper has is the ability to listen and learn. They have their minds made up on any and everything. The world was created in six days, Eve ate the apple, and on and on. Every bit of human progress was made in spite of them and not because of them. If you don't believe me, try talking to one of them. Ask when the last time was that they questioned ANYthing.
Find someone competent to dispense advice about your life and deal with yourself kindly but within a set of good boundaries. And if you listen to God within you, you will arrive at the conclusions right for you.
You see, it's not a battle as these authors suggest, neither is it a compromise. Nor is it apathy. It is a healthy tension that we all face every day of our lives. It's part of the human condition. And being human is what these authors despise.

the normal book was good but i think this book it better if you are in a group and everyone has the book and the workbook...
The book alone is not enough to combat lust, use the workbook together. Nov 10, 2006
The workbook along with the Authors book 'every young man's battle is a two part incredible tool that will bring young men to their knees and bring out the truth and no one gets a pass on this one. Not even myself, the leader of a small group of high school guys in Northern Indiana that are struggling and are desperately seeking help in the combat to destroy Lust. Two thumbs up and what a tool. Also see 'every young womans battle' for girls as my two step daughters are studying in small groups and it is bringing things out that parents have a hard time talking about. [...]
Getting the discussion going Feb 23, 2006
Young men seeking godly character will benefit from reading this book. Those without a foundation in discipleship will not. I appreciate the authors tackling a topic that the church MUST tackle. I did not come to the same conclusions as the reviewer who saw it as labeling all sex as evil.
