Pure Desire - When You've Come to the End of your Rope. Mar 13, 2010
I'm surprised this book doesn't have more reviews. It's definitely a diamond in the rough! Ted Robers, an ex fighter pilot who fought in Vietnam starts off with a story where his wife recently became a Christian and invited him to their all woman's bible study. They asked him to close in prayer at the end and he had never said a prayer in his life. He gave it his best shot and said, "Lord, whatever the hell You want us to do, we're ready." Ted has since grown in the Lord and pastors a church which helps others break new strides into purity.
Before this book, I tried everything to break through into purity... from Every Man's Battle to prayers regarding generational curses... nothing seemed to help. I literally ripped Every Man's Battle in half after getting pissed off at the suggestion to "bounce your eyes" when you see a beautiful woman. The reality is that the majority of the problems we experience are merely symptoms. I purchased Pure Desire and it helps to understand the noose of addiction and that it is not only a spiritual battle, but neurological as well. This book strikes a perfect balance between the psychology of addiction and having breakthrough in the power of the Cross. The book aims at exposing the heart, which is the root of where all of our issues with purity reside. I highly recommend trying to find a small group that hosts Pure Desire and to go through the Seven Pillars of Freedom workbook as a supplemental aid which in my opinion, is actually even better than the book.
Some people are good Christians, they pray, read their Bibles, and spend time with God but can't seem to get this part of their lives taken care of. If this is you, I suggest giving it one more try and read this book. The battle is uphill, but the victory of purity is worth it. I'm still trudging up my hill but I see light at the other side.

Pure Desire May 11, 2008
The information in this book is clearly and insightfully presented. As with any book that "hits the target" for what Gods desire is for us, it can be applied to other areas of our lives as well. I would recommend this book to any one who desires a clearer view of Gods love towards us and the restored relationship He wants for us.
