Reviews - What do customers think about Sex And The Single Guy?
A Valuable Resource Feb 27, 2007
This is an excellent resource for teens and college age young men seeking to overcome their personal, private struggles with sexual purity. Though the author is young and relatively new, he obviously speeks from the heat of battle and has an accurate grasp on biblical truth. This book is also one of the most honest and candid expositions on the topic of masturbation I've ever read. You'll find no sugar-coating here, or any attempts at offering a watered-down, psychologically permissive (worldly) view of sex and male sexuality.
Though you will have to weed through small portions of contemporary thought every great now and again (relating to music standards and other things that comprise what is "generally acceptable" in the "self-sensative" church at large today), it by no means overrides the emphasis of the book, nor does it affect the presentation of biblical truth as it relates to purity.
This is a good read for youth workers and young men seeking to get the victory over their all-too-easily besetting sins.
Daringly honest and Biblical Mar 25, 2005
I know Joe Knable as a sincere, passionate friend. In his goal to be God-glorifying, he delivers Biblical answers to the spiritual dilemma I have faced for years in my own life. Joe points out that my flesh has already declared war on me, and he has challenged me in just the first few chapters to, once-and-for-all, declare war on my flesh. If you struggle with lust, it's time to join Joe Knable in declaring war! Paul urged Timothy to "flee youthful lusts," and Joe points us to the Biblical solution with utterly convicting honesty.
From a Girl's Perspective Mar 23, 2005
I know that this book is for guys, but I read Sex and the Single Guy for the following reasons: 1. I want to know what's going on guys' heads 2. I want to know how I can better protect my brothers in Christ 3. This book doesn't just deal with sexual sin, but gives guidelines for conquering sinful thoughts, protecting yourself from temptation, and surrendering yourself whole heartedly to God.
Godly, single perspectives on sexuality are rare; rarer still is a guy who will face the fact that even Christian men have problems with pornography, lust, etc., and declare boldly that as followers of Christ, Christian men need to conquer this and truly be different from the world. Joe is sensitive and honest, baring his heart publicly and encouraging other single guys to join him in a war against sinful sexuality. Using the perspectives of guys and girls, and the often painful stories of both, Joe presents a powerful and convicting book. Do I recommend this book to girls as well as to guys? Absolutely! It's not often that a Christian girl can read a book for men and come away feeling valued and hopeful that there truly are men who desire purity in their guy/girl relationships.
integrity and honesty team up to challenge every reader Feb 26, 2005
Knable writes from the real, down-to-earth perspective that connects with every guy desiring personal purity starting right now. An amazingly challenging book that gives men the right perspective on tough issues we deal with, and teaches us to love and respect women as our sisters. Every man should read this - and women would gain plenty of insight from it as well!
