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.

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.

Format: Paperback
I obtained my free copy of "Every Man's Battle" from Multnomah for review. (A handful of women looking at that title may have a handful of different ideas regarding what the book is about. A stadium filled with thousands of men would provide only one answer ... and it would be correct.) I handpicked this book because of its relevancy to the Christian walk. To one extent or another, most men have not gained complete victory in this area of their life and this book appeared to provide a battle plan for winning. Having completed the book, I can say that my suppositions were correct.

To begin with, this is a man's book written by men to men. As such, it periodically comes across as conversation that would take place in a male locker room. Not that the conversation is impure - it's written by men who take their walk with Jesus seriously. The conversation is just frank and honest.

The authors took a very interesting approach to dealing with the sins of thought and deed. Since it is "maleness" that creates the potential problems, it is "maleness" that can get men out. The authors write on page 71: "You got into this mess by being male; you'll get out by being a man." The authors write on page 218: "I want you to know that you are a warrior of the Lord God Almighty. The battle for purity lies before you, and victory is yours for the taking. God is with you, and make no mistake, together you stand as a formidable duo on the battlefield. You can win - you will - win this battle." You read that and you just want to let out a good ol' Tim Allen ("Home Improvement") "Arrrggghhh arrrrggghhh!"

However, even though it is quite man-centered, it is also thoroughly biblical. Verse upon verse are given to show how seriously God takes sexual purity in the Scriptures.

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.
