Editorial Reviews


Praise for Every Man’s Battle and Every Young Man’s Battle by Stephen Arterburn, Fred Stoeker, andMike Yorkey

“There is no more common enemy of true manhood than the diversion or the perversion of our sexual capacities. I welcome every contribution to the arsenal of resistance.”
—JACKW. HAYFORD, LITTD, founding pastor of the Church on theWay and chancellor of The King’s University

“This book will revolutionize the marriage of every man who reads it. Why? Because every man battles sexual temptations and every marriage grows stronger when these temptations are defeated. The vulnerable, honest, and insightful pages of this book reveal what every man must know.”
—DRS. LES AND LESLIE PARROTT, authors of Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts

“This timely resource presents clear practical principles for sexual purity. Arterburn and Stoeker call for courage, commitment, and self-discipline as they lead men into a more successful relationship with God, family, and spouse. This book is truly for every man.”
—DR. JOHN C. MAXWELL, founder of EQUIP

“God has used Steve Arterburn countless times to impact my heart and life; I am thankful for him and his investment in Every Man’s Battle. I am also grateful for Fred Stoeker. Fred pours himself into this book with honesty, vulnerability, and a practical strategy to fight the good fight. He offers biblical truth and hope to anyone with ears to hear how to battle the war of sexual temptation. Read with an open heart—Every Man’s Battle may save your marriage and your witness.”
—DR. GARY ROSBERG, president of America’s Family Coaches and coauthor of Guard Your Heart and The Five Love Needs of Men and Women

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 of HomeWord

I still feel as though the book was a bit biased.
Although the book might be used as stand-alone material with the reader adapting as necessary to not having read the book, it didn't work that well for me.
Karl Dumas
Every Single Man's Battle is a book designed to go along with "Every Man's Battle" and is specifically designed and targeted for single men.

This book is just an additive. If you are single just read every man's battle. this book just asks you questions about what you read in every mans battle. It doesn't really tell you anything new. I was disappointed when I got it. I thought this book was a stand alone but it is just a study guide.

Stephen Arteburn has some good ideas in his main book Every Man's Battle that should have gone into a standalone book for single Christian men, and NOT JUST those who are divorced. Unfortunately, all that exists for them is Every Young Man's Battle, which is written for a teenage and young adult audience. Having this as just a workbook supplement to Every Man's Battle is simply not enough.

I have had this book sitting on my shelf for probably five months. After I received this book, I was wondering why on earth I would bother choosing this book to read. Then just the previous day, I was talking to a friend of mine about needing to read this book, and I was informed that Stephen Arterburn went through a divorce. This meant that I was even more hesitant to read a book, because after all, if it didn't work for him, why read it? As soon as I read over the introduction I knew I wasn't giving Mr. Arterburn a fair chance. I have now read this book, and will share my thoughts with you all.

Before you read any further I want to put in a warning right here. This book review is not meant for children. I will be willingly addressing the issues that Stephen Arterburn, Fred Stoeker, and Mike Yorkey address. I will also be honest in this review as I see things that I can directly relate to and share my own insights and experiences. In this review, I will be direct but not graphic.

The backdrop to Every Single Man's Battle is Stephen Arterburn's reentry into the dating world. Stephen writes this book to aid fellow brothers in Christ who may be single or recently divorced by challenging them to be men who flee from sexual temptation and pursue integrity. The author writes not from a place of superiority or strength, but to walk alongside men who may be struggling with sexual sin. In a society that devalues marriage, and the marriage bed, and instead advocates for shacking up, Mr. Arterburn in this book provides a helpful defense, and response to the sacredness of sex between one man and one woman in marriage.

Prior to marrying my prized wife, Emma, I read Every Man's Battle. This was an influential book in my attempt at biblical manhood. I recommend that book to all men regardless of their situations in life (not necessarily young boys though). In Every Single Man's Battle Arterburn and Stoeker offer another work in the same vein. It builds primarily on their previous work together, thus the reader may be best served by purchasing it as well.

The authors tackle the issues of "Where Are We?", "How We Got Here," "Choosing Victory," "Victory With Your Eyes," "Victory With Your Heart," and "Victory With Your Mind."

Some wonder if God understands us. Arterburn and Stoeker offer a resounding "YES!" to this question. From there, particularly young men, deny this and use it as ammunition to rationalize sinful conduct. This is a book concerned primarily with sexual purity. High numbers of young men fall trap to pornography, lust, and adultery in their teen years, becoming highly addicted to temporal pleasures found online, in magazines, and in the movies.

This book is particularly beneficial for a men's group, but can also be used solo. While I had mentioned previously it may be best to buy Every Man's Battle it is not necessary. This book provides all the resources you need to take back your life from sinful lust and porn habits. But, that does not mean you can do it on your own. The book is clear that we are not the fictional characters played by the likes of Sylvester Stallone, Clint Eastwood, and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Even they are vulnerable off the silver screen.

Men need to protect against disconnect from other Christian men.

Format: Paperback
This book entitled, Every Single Man's Battle: Staying on the Path of Sexual Purity is a good companion volume to the Every Man's Battle. Stephen Arterburn and Fred Stoeker have built upon the principles laid out in the first book. This book emphasizes on the single man, giving him a practical workbook for his ever changing and busy life. The beginning of the workbook really takes little time getting to the heart of the matter. Arterburn admits early the singleness may come to a man when they least expect it, relating that his marriage ended in divorce in 2003.

The book relates that men are put, or better said, put themselves in awkward situations. Some are not as point blank as the Kama Sutra that the author was experiencing. Nonetheless, men are put in tempting positions, whether by their own doing on not. What they do with those tempting moment is the heart of this book. God knows what we are thinking; he knows what we are feeling. He made us after all! The first couple of chapters deal with the dangers of disconnection and then not connecting. They try to relate that relationships are not just about sex, they are something more!

How do you deal with sex if you have been already having it? Does God really expect you to stop? Well, yes. God tells us throughout scripture what he expects of us. The author's clearly relate that it is not all about me, but all about God.
The remainder of the book works along with Every Man's Battle. They first look at where are we? It is always good to get your bearings. By taking the reader through the battle and having them apply what they learn a good foundation is laid that can be biblically built upon. It is also important to figure out how we got where we are. We did not just wake up one morning and there we are!
