Editorial Reviews

Review

"Sometimes candid writers can graphically pinpoint problems but miss the solutions. Not so Tom Eisenman. He is scriptural, relevant, and involved with readers." (Bookstore Journal)

Tom L. Eisenman is a pastor, writer and speaker based in California. His ministry throughout the United States has been to a wide variety of audiences: from men's conferences to university student retreats, from family life workshops to Bible seminars.

Tom was also a speaker at the Promise Keepers conference in Boulder, Colorado. From personal evangelism to facing temptation, from equipping parents to developing Christian character, Tom Eisenman addresses a wide range of issues with a gift for candor, humor and vivid illustrations that makes his practical biblical messages applicable and memorable for any audience. His articles have appeared in Moody, Decision, Discipleship Journal and Focus on the Family and other publications. He is the author of several books, including Temptations Men Face, Everyday Evangelism, Temptation, Temptations Families Face, and The Accountable Man.

First published in 1991, this book is still in circulation for a reason--Eisenman talks about specific tempations. His focus is male temptation and he both advocates respect for women while reinforcing a sexually-typed take on sin. In particular, Eisenman speaks openly about sexual sin. 3 chapters are dedicated to machismo, lust and affairs, and then 3 on power, money, and performance (perfectionsim.) First, Tom acknowledges his own history of sin, with a clear description of fantasy, masturbation, and pornography. Second, he argues that sin is deceitful, persistent, and consensual. Third, he believes that while God gives us the power to overcome sin, we need to fight against it. He describes that fight with many examples, some from his own experience and some from friends and research. The book ends with a chapter suggesting that women not enable men to continue sinning by choosing co-dependency and an appendix giving 12 strategies for resisting temptation.
Highlights include a clear description of why he believes his masturbation was a compulsive sin. I also liked the list he includes of 12 steps toward consummating an affair. To some extent he predates the Celebrate Recovery movement by citing AA's 12 steps and then summarizing them in 6 principles that form the acrostic "healed."
At various points I was uncomfortable that the description of (sexual) sin was a little too "fresh." In dealing with our compulsive habits and persisting temptations, sometimes I felt he was recommending "white knuckling," e.g., hanging on by dint of our persistent effort. It is effective for a while, but usually ends in another round of frustration. Eisenman talks about this, but the book as a whole seems more focused on the "hanging on" part of the journey.

I gave the book to my son. Haven't heard back yet. I would recommend it to any men's group for study.
