Is the temptation of pornography really a search for something more? This world has 68 million searches for pornography each day and at least 70% of Christian men say they have viewed it in the last year.
Michael John Cusick uses his examples from his life and his experience as a counselor and ministry leader that it takes more than willpower and more faith to stop, it takes a search for what your heart really desires. In this book he tells how the struggles begin, how to prevent them, and how to overcome the problem when it starts.
Author- Michael John Cusick is a licensed professional counselor, ordained minister, and spiritual director wh0 has experienced the restoring hand of God. He also founded Restoring the Soul, a ministry which provides life changing soul care to Christian leaders.
My Thoughts- This book is a must read for any man who may be struggling with sexual problems or may know someone who is. As a wife, I don’t think I would give it to my husband if there was not a solid relationship.
There are many parts in this book that could help many with more than just sexual struggles. I think that is great, because some men may have more issues than just the sexual struggle.
One of the best parts of this book was learning about the 3 Spiritual Counterfeits. They are the “counterfeit good,” “counterfeit truth,” and “counterfeit worship.” These are the works of the enemy and he uses those to lure us to him. It is his lies and temptations that keep men away from the true God and His promises.
I would highly recommend this book to any man who struggles sexually.
