Product Description

Review

Praise for Every Young Man’s Battle
 
“Every Young Man’s Battle does the best job I have ever seen on the subject
of sexual temptation. Once upon a time we lived in a world that didn’t talk
about secrets, and that world has brought us to the mess we are in today.
Young men must have an honest, blunt, and unashamedly Christian look
at their sexuality. This book will save thousands of future marriages.”
—Jim Burns, president, YouthBuilders
 
“I have never read a book as direct and open as Every Young Man’s Battle.
The profound principles communicate the authors’ personal experiences
and provide the hope that anyone can overcome a day-to-day battle with
impure thoughts. Every Young Man’s Battle helps you see the importance of
taking control over your eyes, your mind, and your heart so that you can
completely honor God in every facet of your life.”
—Scott Bullard, of musical recording group Soul Focus
 
“It’s encouraging to see some real men stand up and sound the alarm to
young men. Stephen, Fred, and Mike’s courage to tell their stories exposes
what has unfortunately become a dirty little secret among men in the
church. The battle cry of the day is for men of all ages to live a pure and
holy life, and this book will crush Satan’s strategy by giving the troops the
guts to talk about what has been taboo in the church for so long. The
authors’ poignant stories paint a picture of battle in which all men can
relate and offer hope and camaraderie to win the war.”
—Troy Vanliere, artist/manager (representing NewSong,
Carolyn Arends, Soul Focus, Jadyn Strand, and Glad)
 
“There has been a gaping void in the search for holiness, and Every Young
Man’s Battle addresses those issues where others have been comfortably
silent. If there is even a spark of desire for purity in your life, this book will
kindle that fire… It is possible to walk in victory, as you will surely find out
after reading the Every Man series.”
—Matt Butler, of musical recording group NewSong

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book contains many, many helpful strategies and insights. My only concern is that many descriptions are very graphic.... On the one hand it shows the authors really do know what a lot of men struggle with, but still.... not sure if it needed to be that explicit. But it does contain good insights and helpful strategies.

Absolutely Poisonous Book June 30 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is poison. I have to characterize it that way because it is so crude and unnecessarily graphic in places that I can't possibly recommend that someone read it despite it containing some kernels of truth and good advice. It's inappropriate for a man of any age. And I write this not as someone who is unexposed to the world, but rather as an attorney who has represented rapists, child abusers and molesters. This book is simply no respite from the endless drumbeat of depraved sexuality in culture, and it is a disgusting and gratuitous sexuality at that. For instance, did the author need to tell us how he learned about masturbation? And how to do it? Including lubricant? Also, did the author need to burden us by telling us by name who his favorite centerfold was? (I keep asking myself--what if that woman is/becomes a Christian? Why has he perpetuated her shame for others to read?) The graphic nature of the text is unbelievably bad. Truly awful. Toward the end of the book there are some kernels of truth, but the balance of the book is so outrageous and unbiblical in its graphic depictions that I could never, ever recommend that a Christian or non-Christian alike read this book. The authors have a lot of emotional and spiritual growing up to do before they put books like this in the marketplace. I won't project bad intentions onto the authors, but I will categorically say that their execution is an epic spiritual fail. Mothers, and even fathers, may think that this is the 'strong medicine' that needs to be administered to sons who are caught up in pornography or sexual activity. It is not. This is not the only way to communicate with a young person. No matter how severe his problem with lust and pornography, this book is poison and unredeemable and seriously risks titillating an already lustful mind through its descriptions of furtive sexual acts and thoughts. And this review is coming from a criminal defense attorney who has sat through days of graphic courtroom testimony about sex with minors.

Excellent Book Dec 26 2009
By Melissa Row - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Every Young Man's Battle is a no nonsense book that goes way beyond all of the usual ideas for sexual purity for young and old men alike. It is full of very direct, real world help for any man's struggles with what he sees every day.This book does not shy away from the subjects of masturbation, pornography, and girls and women who dress without enough clothes. (Mothers afraid of teaching your boys about too much of the world's truths, think again and get this book!)This book will give a guy a list of concrete things to do to keep himself out of trouble and moving on a path of healthy, happy living without the overwhelming feelings associated with being addicted to thoughts of sex or the guilt associated with these subjects. This book would be a good choice for any man and is an excellent choice for a single man of any age. (It is also good for young ladies as a help to show them what they are doing when they wear too little and to show them the way men think.---My 17 yr old daughter read this, too! Parental guidance advised for girls though, as it is a bit over the top for our feminine sensibilities and it could easily scare a girl a bit or make her conclude that all men are somewhat 'sick', which isn't the point of it all). As a parent of 5 boys, 3 girls and 'in law' children, too, I highly recommend this book.

Other books I recommend on this or similar subjects are:

Books by Douglas Wilson:Fidelity: What It Means to be a One-Woman Man, Future Men, Her Hand in Marriage: Biblical Courtship in the Modern World, Reforming Marriage,

Books from the 'Every Man' series:Every Man's Battle: Winning the War on Sexual Temptation One Victory at a Time (The Every Man Series), Every Woman's Battle: Discovering God's Plan for Sexual and Emotional Fulfillment (The Every Man Series), Every Young Woman's Battle: Guarding Your Mind, Heart, and Body in a Sex-Saturated World (The Every Man Series),

All are very good books for their intended audiences. Wilson's books are deeper but are great for high school students that enjoy a good read.

An oxymoron Nov. 20 2012
By Joseph Pichler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
We borrowed this book, so on a good note, we didn't spend money on it. At some point in time, my son said he wanted to stop reading it. As he explained why, my husband and I were shocked at the contents. The author literally explains HOW to masturbate. He also goes over, inch by inch details of movie scenes with women in them, vividly describing body parts. My son does not watch these types of movies, and has enough temptation in the world via billboards, magazines, etc. The least to be expected is for a supposed Christian book to offer honest help; not increase the problem. He even comments that in a certain movie, an actor masturbated into an apple pie. Can you explain what that has to do with ANYTHING?!? This is completely inappropriate, and frankly, sick.

Age Specific Sept. 1 2011
By Sir Tut - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This subject matter appears to be written for the young men 16 to 35. For ages younger than 16 I would consider this presentation a high risk for undesirable behavior.

Triggers for Sexual Impurity Sept. 30 2013
By concerned mom of three boys - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book was a big disappointment. My sons have seen things online that I wish they hadn't, they know more than I wish they did, however this books contains graphic details that would trigger sexual sin for probably just about anyone. I was actually hoping they could read it for themselves. As a woman who does not have a lot of struggle with lust, I found this book prompting thoughts and fantasy that were challenging my own purity. I would not recommend this book to anyone. If you are considering it for someone, especially someone struggling with lust, etc--please review it first.
