In the Christian church and the world at large today, addiction to pornography is not just a crisis, it is the crisis. The approach for many has been to label this a war, and scores of books and teachers have tried to show that using various control methods and tools in order to deal with the problem leads to freedom. But the crisis continues to grow, and true freedom, the kind that Jesus seems to be pointing to in the Gospels, seems forever out of reach.
This powerless approach has left millions without true freedom and asking some very hard questions about themselves, their sexuality, and the nature of God. In this groundbreaking new book on an age-old topic, author Seth Taylor leads us into the question: "Is there any real power? And if there is, why don't we see it more?" With this question as the starting point, Taylor shows listeners how to peel back the layers of all the things people are medicating with pornography and other "drugs." He gives listeners the tools to make their spirits come alive. Through a compelling combination of stories and spiritually grounded teaching from his own pilgrimage, Taylor shows listeners that freedom is not a myth, but rather the essence of every human being, created in the image of God.
Feels Like Redemption powerfully teaches that this journey into sexual and spiritual health is not a battle. It's a pilgrimage - a sacred journey. And in walking this journey, we can be changed forever.

This book is the unhealthy pendulum swing of "white knuckling." Looking at a someone lustfully is no longer committing adultery in the heart, it is now "medicating." People act out due to self-hate, not because of any spiritual reason (in the Christian sense). Very new age. I was looking for a good resource but found a very flesh and emotion driven solution which ends up being no solution at all. The summary? The author says it at the end of the book - just try something. I was hoping for a lot more than that. Very disappointing.
the compulsive nature of today's pornography consumer is real. PIED is a term that wasn't used 10 years ago. it stands for pornography induced erectile dysfunction and today's high speed Internet access coupled with compulsive out of control pornography consumption is the reason this new term exists. Not to mention the broken families and relational conflicts a pornography addicted person struggles with. Seth book is a fresh approach and his story is one of help hope and healing. 5 stars!
All I can say is from one who is one who likes control, certainty, and structure, this book makes you take an approach to freedom that makes me fearful and afraid. Jesus did not ask Peter to make sure everything was ok before he stepped out on the water, He said Come! So as you read, trust in your Heavenly Father when He says come to Me, know that it is not a bait and switch. He wants you to experience peace and freedom beyond understanding. This book has been a blessing and I will continue to go through it a few more times in the coming weeks.
Everything this man describes has clicked with something deep within me. Christianity and my addiction are finally starting to make connections and make sense! I recommend this book for anybody
this book is the starting block for all those wanting freedom from addiction to pornography
