This dirty dozen, now cleaned by grace, share their stories to help others.

The advent of Internet pornography means that in the privacy of one's own home, every possible form of porn is just a click away. Some 60% of Christian men have sought out pornography. Many of them become addicted. For some pornography serves as the gateway to many other sexual sins.

The co-authors of this book include two former ministers, a former missionary, two preachers' sons and several Christian college graduates. They have two things in common: 1) Sex is their 'drug of choice,' and they were all brought to their knees by this addiction. 2) They seek the Lord to keep them free of their sexual sins.

Here are some excerpts from the book:

"I found enough money for gas, a little for porn, and maybe enough for a peep show, and I walked to my car, keys-in-hand. I was gone! Now, I don't mean I was simply on the road; I mean I was gone on my addiction. Once fixated on the porn "solution," the adrenalin and testosterone kicked in, and like a drug addict going to get a fix from the pusher-man, I was on my way. My heart raced as I flew down that highway."

"One evening I was on the computer, and my oldest daughter needed to use it for her homework. 'I'm working,' I told her. 'I'll be finished later.'
"She was insistent, however, and sat there in front of the computer screen waiting for me to finish. A pornographic image popped up suddenly. "That doesn't look like work to me," she said as she walked away with her unfinished homework."

"... there was an incessant seeking for that elusive something more/something different that would-or so I felt certain-eventually provide me with that indefinable 'it' that would at long last satisfy the craving that burned within me. 'It' was always just out of sight and over the next hill and sure to be found on the next website or within the next affair."

Press Comments --------------------------------------------------------------------

5.0 out of 5 stars - Strong Recommendation for This Book
"The stories in this book are very readable, chilling accounts of how we can lose control of our lives and what we must learn and do to regain that control and move forward. Each man relates in his own words how sex addiction affected his life, revealing the dark, destructive forces of the addiction. Watching each man accept the need to change, reach out for help, and then develop the strength and will to overcome those forces and reclaim and improve his life is inspiring. This book is very definitely a must-read in today's world."

Winter Darcy, "Winter's Words"

 

5.0 out of 5 stars- The story of a dozen men who have faced addiction with sex related topics such as pornography and the act itself
"Very few people in the world hate sex. But too much of a good thing can be just as destructive as a bad thing. "Sex Addiction in the Church: 12 Christian Men Share Their Stories of Recovery" is the story of a dozen men who have faced addiction with sex related topics such as pornography and the act itself and how the Church has helped them overcome their addiction to get their lives back on track and mend the fences they broke from their addiction, just like a drug addict. "Sex Addiction in the Church" is recommended reading for any man who may be realizing an addiction of sex of his own."
