This is my very first video book review, so be gentle and patient...I'll learn more.

I'm also looking forward to feedback so that I might improve this venue.

This book, Every Man's Battle, has some good points. I very rarely ever do negative reviews, however, this book left me wanting; wanting the Cross of Christ to be far more central than it is. As it stands, the authors seem to simply presume the reader is aware of the cross of Christ and what was accomplished upon it. This can be a dangerous assumption, as I think it proves in their application here.

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.

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.

Transaction went very well. The book is outstanding. I strongly recommend this book for every man to read. It would also help women understand how men are different when it comes to intimacy.

unfortunately, this book misses the heart behind the addiction that almost ruined my marriage. The author refuses to address the "heart issues" and woundings that precede addictions; healing those are what leads to true victory, not his practical advice, as helpful as it is as a SUPPLEMENT - but nothing more.

I read this a while back but I do know that I did like what it brought to the forefront of my heart. This reason why I marked this book so low is that it dealt with how to avoid lust and keep from temptation but it didn't deal with how to handle that I desire to lust regardless of what I'm looking at our doing. Behavior modification is needed, but I need my desires changed which I don't feel this book really helped draw out in how that is done. The gospel and the power of Jesus Christ is the only thing that can affect my hearts desires. So I would recommend other books prior to reading this. Legalism is something that could stem from reading this book (wanting to set boundaries up, rules, etc. to keep from doing things). Rules and standards to live by are great, but they can not stop you from that sin. It will just make it harder for a sin to manifest itself.

This book deals with the fruit of being sinful and no the root of being sinful. Recommend "Not Even a Hint" - Joshua Harris

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.
