Editorial Reviews


Praise for Every Young Man’s Battle
“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, YouthBuilders
“I have never read a book as direct and open as Every Young Man’s Battle.
The profound principles communicate the authors’ personal experiences
and provide the hope that anyone can overcome a day-to-day battle with
impure thoughts. Every Young Man’s Battle helps you see the importance of
taking control over your eyes, your mind, and your heart so that you can
completely honor God in every facet of your life.”
—Scott Bullard, of musical recording group Soul Focus
“It’s encouraging to see some real men stand up and sound the alarm to
young men. Stephen, Fred, and Mike’s courage to tell their stories exposes
what has unfortunately become a dirty little secret among men in the
church. The battle cry of the day is for men of all ages to live a pure and
holy life, and this book will crush Satan’s strategy by giving the troops the
guts to talk about what has been taboo in the church for so long. The
authors’ poignant stories paint a picture of battle in which all men can
relate and offer hope and camaraderie to win the war.”
—Troy Vanliere, artist/manager (representing NewSong,
Carolyn Arends, Soul Focus, Jadyn Strand, and Glad)
“There has been a gaping void in the search for holiness, and Every Young
Man’s Battle addresses those issues where others have been comfortably
silent. If there is even a spark of desire for purity in your life, this book will
kindle that fire… It is possible to walk in victory, as you will surely find out
after reading the Every Man series.”
—Matt Butler, of musical recording group NewSong

From the Inside Flap

In this world you?re surrounded by sexual images that open the door to temptation. They?re everywhere?on TV, billboards, magazines, music, the internet?and so easy to access that it sometimes feels impossible to escape their clutches. Yet God expects his children to be sexually pure. So how can you survive the relentless battle against temptation? Here?s powerful ammunition.

Steve Arterburn and Fred Stoeker, the authors of the hard-hitting best-seller Every Man?s Battle, now focus on the temptations young single Christian men like you face every day?and they offer workable, biblical strategies for achieving sexual purity.

The authors examine the standard of Ephesians 5:3??there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality??in a positive and sensitive light. And they explain how an authentic, vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ is the key to victory over temptation. Every Young Man?s Battle will show you how to train your eyes and your mind, how to clean up your thought life, and how to develop a realistic battle plan for remaining pure in today?s sexually soaked culture. As a result, you?ll experience hope?real hope?for living a strong, pure life God?s way --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
While containing helpful strategies and ideas, unfortunately the writers drag your mind through the gutter as they graphically discuss accounts of sexual discovery. One teenager I disciple recently told me this book actually caused him to stumble more, since it put new ideas in his mind! Parents and youth leaders should carefully screen this book because it can do more do more harm than good for certain teens.

A healthy alternative that contains an even stronger biblical basis, that avoids the graphic descriptions, and that is much shorter (making it much more likely for teens to read it) is Joshua Harris' "Not Even A Hint: Guarding Your Heart Against Lust." This book is based on the truth of Ephesians 5:3. It has also been re-released as "Sex is Not the Problem, Lust Is." I have led several teenage guys in studies of it and all have found it very beneficial in honoring the Lord in the area of their sexuality.

This book is poison. I have to characterize it that way because it is so crude and unnecessarily graphic in places that I can't possibly recommend that someone read it despite it containing some kernels of truth and good advice. It's inappropriate for a man of any age. And I write this not as someone who is unexposed to the world, but rather as an attorney who has represented rapists, child abusers and molesters. This book is simply no respite from the endless drumbeat of depraved sexuality in culture, and it is a disgusting and gratuitous sexuality at that. For instance, did the author need to tell us how he learned about masturbation? And how to do it? Including lubricant? Also, did the author need to burden us by telling us by name who his favorite centerfold was? (I keep asking myself--what if that woman is/becomes a Christian? Why has he perpetuated her shame for others to read?) The graphic nature of the text is unbelievably bad. Truly awful. Toward the end of the book there are some kernels of truth, but the balance of the book is so outrageous and unbiblical in its graphic depictions that I could never, ever recommend that a Christian or non-Christian alike read this book. The authors have a lot of emotional and spiritual growing up to do before they put books like this in the marketplace. I won't project bad intentions onto the authors, but I will categorically say that their execution is an epic spiritual fail. Mothers, and even fathers, may think that this is the 'strong medicine' that needs to be administered to sons who are caught up in pornography or sexual activity. It is not. This is not the only way to communicate with a young person.Read more ›

48 of 54 people found the following review helpful By concerned mom of three boys on September 30, 2013
Format: Paperback
This book was a big disappointment. My sons have seen things online that I wish they hadn't, they know more than I wish they did, however this books contains graphic details that would trigger sexual sin for probably just about anyone. I was actually hoping they could read it for themselves. As a woman who does not have a lot of struggle with lust, I found this book prompting thoughts and fantasy that were challenging my own purity. I would not recommend this book to anyone. If you are considering it for someone, especially someone struggling with lust, etc--please review it first.

Format: Paperback
Arterburn & Stoeker do an excellent job of talking straight to the single male. Though the book is entitled Every Young Man's Battle this book deals with the very real sexual struggles of every man that is single. I would highly recommend this book to all men ages, High School on up.
The book finally gives straight talk on the issues of masturbation, soft porn, the wandering eyes, and the issues of lust in our culture. In a world where sexual images and humor crowd our airwaves from radio to television this is a needed tool to stay the battle.
This is not just a book on staying pure, but one that gives real resons for trying to do so. Testimonies of men who have struggled, fallen, and then regained their purity are given throughout this book.
I would encourage every man to read this book, and encourage you to buy extras to share with others who may also be struggling to remain pure.

Every Young Man's Battle is a no nonsense book that goes way beyond all of the usual ideas for sexual purity for young and old men alike. It is full of very direct, real world help for any man's struggles with what he sees every day.This book does not shy away from the subjects of masturbation, pornography, and girls and women who dress without enough clothes. (Mothers afraid of teaching your boys about too much of the world's truths, think again and get this book!)This book will give a guy a list of concrete things to do to keep himself out of trouble and moving on a path of healthy, happy living without the overwhelming feelings associated with being addicted to thoughts of sex or the guilt associated with these subjects. This book would be a good choice for any man and is an excellent choice for a single man of any age. (It is also good for young ladies as a help to show them what they are doing when they wear too little and to show them the way men think.---My 17 yr old daughter read this, too! Parental guidance advised for girls though, as it is a bit over the top for our feminine sensibilities and it could easily scare a girl a bit or make her conclude that all men are somewhat 'sick', which isn't the point of it all). As a parent of 5 boys, 3 girls and 'in law' children, too, I highly recommend this book.

Other books I recommend on this or similar subjects are:
