Publisher's Summary

In a world where there are 68 million searches for pornography every day and where over 70 percent of Christian men report viewing porn in the last year, it’s no surprise that more and more men struggle with an addiction to this false fantasy. Common wisdom says if they just had more willpower or more faith, their fight would be over. Is the answer really that simple? According to counselor and ministry leader Michael John Cusick, the answer is no - but the truth may be much more freeing.

Backed by Scripture, Cusick uses examples from his own life and from his 20 years of counseling experience to show us how the pursuit of empty pleasure is really a search for our heart’s deepest desire - and the real key to resistance is discovering and embracing the joy we truly want.

Cusick’s insights help readers understand how porn struggles begin, what to do to prevent them, and most importantly, how to overcome the compulsion once it begins. In the end, this powerful book shows us all how the barrier built by porn addiction can become a bridge to abundant life.

Outstanding perspective and methods

As a believer, I felt this book provided a great way to view this addiction and gave methods that were much more appealing than most other books I've read on the subject.

As a spouse I have found Very helpful

I found the book to be very helpful to share with me what the person experiences first hand to help me as a spouse understand this issue is about more than just lust for porn & lust etc. but having insight into a persons thoughts, experiences & prayers helps me to know that this is a real struggle that is harder for some to deal with than othersand goes deeper than last as a spouse I need to know that there is more to this issue than just my spouse lusting after others. As a spouse I need to be reminded about the spiritual attack on male and female how it starts enough often as a child and how one can have a strong struggle with it and still desire for purity.

Discover Hope in Your Struggle

This was the second time around going through this book. The first was actually reading the paperback. I'm very happy I got it on audible and went through it this way. This book filled me with hope and a clear path towards a sexually pure life. Highly recommend it.

Good medicine

Solid concepts and profound personal disclosure. Very helpful, though I found it hard to listen straight through. A no-nonsense, high intensity presentation. Perhaps a little humor would help the medicine go down.

Beyond Truth

Personally this was a hard book to read/listen too, because the honest truth in it was overwhelming at times.

I didn't really the formula approach to over coming the addictions, but in all honestly and truth, it made sense. Fundamentally it holds true to the christian values that it is preaching.

One struggle I seemed to have with it, was the simple fact of announce you are a sinner and all will be good. That doesn't always happen. Your wife may not be able to forgive you because you acted on your sin desire. Personally that part was over looked.

But I agree with the concept that you have to acknowledged your sin, especially to the ones that are touched by your sin.
