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.

A life line out of the hole

This book is a tool, a ladder out of Porn Hell. When you reach the point of Porn-impotency, its time to listen.

Will definitely read again. Full of promise.

What did you love best about Surfing for God?

Grace filled. The author is speaking to fellow strugglers without judgement, something the Church has trouble communicating. I can see truth and compassion. Most of all the way out because the author walked it himself. Many people talk but fail to lead the way!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Surfing for God?

When seeing the need to change your focus from negative (focus on problem) to positive (focusing on the God given desires)

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There were many and I will listen to again and make bookmarks. I pray this helps me and many others to overcome lifelong struggles.

Any additional comments?

Personal "Thank You" to Michael!!!

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 to hear

It is a good book. I have read three other books like it already. The book has some good information in it. I thought it was a little long. Over I like it.
