Reviews - What do customers think about The War Within: Gaining Victory in the Battle for Sexual Purity?
Excellent Read Jan 26, 2008
This is definitely one of the best books I've ever read on the subject of male sexual sin. The author's use of military examples are easy to grasp and often left me with a renewed view on hard issues. I especially appreciated the sheer volume of practical Scripture that the author includes. The struggle over lust is one that heavily relies on God's grace and forgiveness, and The War Within repeatedly makes that fact known and offers men great encouragement for the outlook of this struggle.
Men, are you losing the battle to porn? Jan 18, 2008
I APPLUAD and ENCOURAGE you if you are reading this becasue odds are, you are addicted to, or know someone, who is addicted to porn. This book is designed to be used with an accountability group that needs solid weapons to successfully wage the internal war for sexual purity. As a biblical counselor, I highly endorese it for all to read.
Ephesians 5:3 But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God's holy people. 4 Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving. 5 For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person -- such a man is an idolater -- has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. 6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God's wrath comes on those who are disobedient. 7 Therefore do not be partners with them. 8 For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light 9(for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) 10 and find out what pleases the Lord. 11 Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. 12 For it is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. 13 But everything exposed by the light becomes visible, 14 for it is light that makes everything visible. NIV

Effective for All Ages Jan 9, 2004
I lead a small group of high school guys through this book. Each one the guys in my group had a severe addiction to pornography and each felt as though they couldn't be used for Christ due to their addiction. This book offered hope and encouragement through a straight forward and purposeful approach. None of us have been in the military, but I would say his military references were extremely effective in getting his point across to the reader. The lives of these high schoolers were changed as a result of God using this book in their lives. It is a great book for all ages and wonderful in a small group(accountability) setting!
i suppose its worthwhile. Oct 16, 2002
not the greatest book. lots of military references, a few decent tips, and a bit of a waste of time. If you really care about your actions, and if you want to change, there are much better books. This is a book about pornography just merely avoiding it. If you really want to change your life to be pure rather than just learning to stay away from porn(which is a short term solution not a long term way of life)you need to read and think about more than this book has to offer. Try joshua harris's I kissed dating goodby, or the smaller books in the new testament- phillipains and collosians and such. perhaps even Bonhoeffer's Life Together. These will give you a much better ground to serve god from than the negative "avoiding porn".
