This was actually a really eye-opening book. I got several things out of it but the two that stood out the most were this: I had no idea how badly the subject matter of the book was hurting my wife. I guess I just thought it was a guy thing and personal and only affected myself. My wife didn't communicate how deeply that it hurt her and my heart is broken for her. Secondly, the last few chapters talked about how husbands should treat their wife's and how special the wives are. I have not been the husband I am called to be and God used this book to show me some of it.

I'm going to approach this review slightly differently than I would normally approach a review. That is, it will not be as long or detailed as it normally would be because this sort of book really does not lend itself to the sort of criticism I would normally level against a book. After all, who can argue with the need for sexual purity, especially among Christians for whom it is expected?

That said, I cannot really criticize this book because, as the cover boasts, the series of which it is a part has sold a whopping 3 million copies (and I assume that number continues to grow as people learn about the series and as more and more people finally figure out that they are sexually out of control.) Again, who can argue? So I have only a couple of thoughts I would bring to the table for discussion and, as always, these are my perceptions which will necessarily differ from the perceptions of others. This is a good thing because it provokes conversation.

It is sort of difficult to read this book without being confronted with the fact that yes, indeed, we all have issues when it comes to purity. It is true, as the authors say, `impurity is a habit.' I was confronted by this page after page. Personal anecdote: I went back to graduate school two years ago at a relatively local university. I am 41. Enough said. Purity issues are complicated and difficult, and it is terribly easy to fall into the habit of taking a peak or hoping for just a glimmer or hoping, secretly of course, that the young coed, easily half my age, forgets she is wearing a short skirt or remembers, as the case may be.

Wow! What a book. 'Every Man's Battle: Winning the War on Sexual Temptation One Victory at a time' by Stephen Arterburn, Fred Stoeker, and Mike Yorkey came highly recommended to me by several people, men and women alike. I have to say that it lived up to it's recommendations.

I was very impressed with the depth of the book, but I didn't feel like I was drowning. Everything was clear and concise. As a woman, I had no idea what it must be like for a man. I was so unaware how many challenges a Christian man faced on a daily basis (actually several times a day). While reading the book I began to watch television differently, and to see newspaper ads, billboards, magazine covers and so much more in a new light.

As a wife and a mother of four boys, I am more aware than I have ever been about their surroundings and the impact that it has on them. As a woman I hope I can be more sympathetic to their temptations and challenges.

Stephen and Fred were very open about the temptations that they have faced in the past and the challenges that they face today. They give a lot of real life examples of how men overcame these sexual temptations and what happened to men that didn't try.

They even have sections for women called 'The Heart of a Woman' that gives us the perspective of the wives of the men as they over came their sexual obstacles. It tells the challenges that a wife will face with her husband, how she can be supportive and how her love and support are critical to overcoming sexual sin.

I highly recommend this book to men and women alike.

This book is a great book because it goes straight to the point, offers real-life situations to identify with, comfronting but encouraging... open and explicit about the topic of sex with a serious, respectful, mature and wise language. After reading this book, guys will have a realistic but yet excelent perspective and vision for their sexuality and the girls will be able to understand many things about guys that are commonly misunderstood.

if you don't like to talk openly about sex, you may feel offended at first... I encourage you to keep reading, you'll understand later. you''ll see the open talk is needed.

I would not recommend this book for many reasons. I picked up this book as I have suffered for many years from sexual impurity and wanted to be set free from this. This book is not the answer to help people through this problem; it has many defects and inefficiencies in its method and delivery. The book seems more like Fred's (the author) fantasies of his past relationships and less about the battle. I do not know how a man "pure of heart" could write such specific and elicit details about women from his past and women other than his wife.

The book shifts a lot of the blame from the man and points them towards women and the wives of men with these sexual addictions. As someone who has suffered from this I know that my wife has absolutely no fault or blame for anything I have done. The book portrays looking at women other than your wife as natural or normal for men and says it's just how we are designed. That could not be further from the truth, I agree every man (and woman) is tempted in this life; however, it is our choice from there how we respond to these temptations. The book contradicts itself by relying on scripture Matthew 5:28 that states "But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart". Therefore if looking is "normal" for men then apparently per Fred adultery must be "normal" for men, which couldn't be further from the truth of God. Job 31:1 states "I made a covenant with my eyes not to look lustfully at a young woman" would have painted a better picture of how men should act, and that they can be pure of heart and mind.

In my opinion the book should be rewritten to focus more on the condemnation of the sin that men commit and less time on blame shifting and looking for excuses.
