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
I admire Steve and Fred's honesty, and I rejoice in their own success in battling sexual sin, but there method of approaching this subject I believe wasn't helpful at all.
They got quite crude at times in language, and even sensuous in their discussion of their past sins, and ultimately I had to put the book away because it was just too graphic. I was extremely disappointed to have to do so, because this is a subject that must be dealt with, and truly is a struggle for teenagers and I know this personally.
There were times when the book took on almost a confessional aspect to it, as though fred and Steve were confessing their past sexual sins to us the reader just so we would know them. It was nice that they saw it to be so important to let the reader know that where he or even she struggles is where they themselves have been before, but the detail was too much.
There are stories of one night stands in which the author states that he slipped out of his clothes and into bed with some girl, and blatant description of certain women that he has lusted over and what the particular image was that caused him to lust.
This book became a topic of prayer for me that I would read it and not begin to lust after the images they painted in my head while reading, and finally I put it away because I couldn't.
Never fear though Joshua Harris has just released a book called Not Even a Hint or something like that that deals with this same subject in a "PG-rated" way. I have ordered myself a copy and expect it to be quite good as his other books have been.

I highly recommend this book if your young and struggling. I'm a 24 year old male training to be a youth pastor, and struggling with lust is very fraustrating to me. I've tried many times to clean it up on my own...but to no avail.
Reading "Every Young Man's Battle" was very helpful in helping me understand my struggles, and gave practical specific steps on how to guard against temptation and lust. The book was CLEARLY written by someone who's "been there" before us. It's straight-shooting, blunt, and real. And when your dealing with something as spiritually disabling as lust - you want advice that's gonna get results fast. God has done a great thing through these authors - I highly recommend this book!

I have read both this book for young men and Every Man's Battle written primarily for married men. I got more out of the one not geared toward young men; I felt the challenge and the writing was more effective. Neither one is very subtle, so it's not like you're being less direct by reading the Young Man's Battle. The basic issue is the same, and I just think Fred & Steve deal with it better in the previous Every Man's Battle. The Young Man's seemed rushed and really didn't provide anything the first one didn't. Every Young Man's Battle is great for teenagers, but singles will probably get more out of Every Man's Battle.

This book and it's pair (Every man's battle) are both great blessings. The offer a solution for sins that seemed hopeless. Ever felt like you've fallen into sin too terrible to speak of? This is the book to help with that. However, this book is really for those who have already fallen, already lost their sexual innocence. If you havn't yet (& God bless you) this isn't the book for you. Stick to the more traditional literature, since this goes into strong graphic testimonials and such and could do more harm than good.

I thought this was an awesome book, it has helped me quite a bit!!! [Reviewer] says it "crude", but it isnt, it is VERY helpful. This book is key to helping w/the battle of sexual temptation and is overwhelmingly helpful. The Bible DOES say that lusting is adultery, and it is, if you look at a woman lustfully, you HAVE committed adultery in your heart, and the Bible does say this is a sin. This book is great and I think that every young man should read it.

Format: Paperback
This book is ideal for younger teenagers, under the age of 15, as it provides a ton of information on the consequences of things often begun at that age: pornography, masturbation, lust, etc. It is very likely that a kid who has only begun to do these things or hasn't begun to will be profoundly and succesfully effected by the in-depth discussions of this book on the results of sexual impurity. If the seed of impurity has only been newly planted, "Every Young Man's Battle" will unearth it before the roots of its lustful evils can grow deeper.
The book provides many citations from the Bible that deal with sexual impurity. Although people will complain that it contains explicit themes, what do you expect? This is a book that explores the harm and damage of sexual impurity: it is to be expected that such themes will need to be brought up. In fact, the attitude that this book shouldnt be read because it talks about masturbation, etc reflects the problem of parents mentioned in the book who didnt address these issues to the people who tell their stories of becoming sexually impure. It is something that must be addressed.
The authors share many experiences of others in their struggles and shows readers that they are not alone in their sexual impurity. Some of the stories, if ending in success of becoming chaste or maritally chaste, are inspiring. Overall the book is quite helpful.
However, as with most books, it is lacking some things. The book is written from a fundamentalist Christian perspective. If you don't want to hear about people being "saved" and "accepting Jesus" you will probably be annoyed in reading it.
