FOR INSIDE THE BOOK (Bold parts can be excerpted for the back cover if there is room)
The often quoted saying, “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.” holds true in this recent work of Dr. Harry Schaumburg. The Church of Jesus Christ is thoroughly enmeshed in one moral crisis after the other, and we have been in desperate need for a truly biblical answer to this crisis. Several thousand years ago, someone said, “...Increased years should teach wisdom.” It is evident that Dr. Schaumburg’s years of experience and his commitment to a thoroughly biblical approach to dealing with this issue has produced a work that shines with penetrating light into the one of the darkest areas of 21st century Christian life. I commend this work as a handbook for study in every church, as a resource to every pastor who has or will face this matter in their ministry and as a diagnostic tool for personal evaluation of one’s own life and walk. No pastor’s library should be without this wonderful tool. If Undefiled is taken seriously, it could produce a sea change in Christian behavior.

As the Church awakens to the mushrooming challenges of sexual sin and temptation, this book is important. Not only does Dr.
Schaumburg capture hearts through compelling narrative, he addresses the real issues head on. The author integrates a much needed Biblical
view of sex into the fabric of everyday faith. But most importantly, Dr. Schaumburg emphasizes the concept of sin, rather than the more
typical categorization of sexual sin as disease. Because sin is thoroughly addressed here with the gospel of Jesus Christ, hope and
power are present. Undefiled is substantial, but written in a way that people can comprehend. It is my prayer that this work will be
widely read - leading to understanding, repentance and faith, and God's blessing for people and families.
From a former client:
Before going to see Dr. Schaumburg, I was terrified. Not only had my world as I thought I knew it crumbled, but I was desperate for some answers to why my spouse had done these things: didn’t he care about our marriage? Our family? What was so wrong with me that he had to go elsewhere? While reeling from the revelations, I faced the thought of what to do next: should we spend more money we didn’t have on counseling that although it was “christian” hadn’t helped in the past?
Now, as an alumni of Dr. Schaumberg’s method, I can tell you that this book offers a real answer for the above questions facing so many broken marriages today. The real solution is not about the counseling, the recovery programs, and finding who to blame for one’s behavior--we tried those and they didn’t bring true change. Dr. Schaumberg’s method gets to the heart of the matter, literally. He guides each person to examine their own heart and see how it lines up with God’s will for their life, step by step, just as if you were going through his program. You will not be the same person you were if you read and follow the instructions in this book; in it you will find the keys to sexual redemption.
From a former client:
The resources Harry is making available to use in the local church will transform people’s hearts and minds. I am confident that the truth contained in these new resources will begin to shatter the strongholds that have held many captive for years. If more people are exposed to this truth, hopefully the tide of self-help can be stemmed and the tide of clean heart, clean mind can begin to grow.

The subtitle of Undefiled is Redemption from Sexual Sin, Restoration for Broken Relationships. I think the word "redemption" is particularly instructive and particularly important. Today the vast majority of people enter marriage with a complex and often extensive sexual history, whether that involves only one partner or hundreds, whether it involves abuse or pornography or anything else. It is the rare couple, even the rare Christian couple, who can attest on their wedding night that this sexual experience is their first. This means that almost every sexual relationship is in need of redemption, in need of God's grace to heal it, to renew it, to strengthen it.Read more ›
Since then I have read more than a dozen books on this topic. Most were Christian in perspective but not all. Although many were helpful, none spoke to the essence of the issue of sexual sin. Nothing I read addressed this topic at its core until Undefiled. Undefiled is a comprehensive and insightful resource to clarify the myths of our sexual behavior. I have not found any other resource like it.
My husband and I have been tremendously enlightened by Dr. Schaumburg's timely wisdom. This book is helpful and healing on so many levels. The information contained is the result of many years of counseling. It is founded upon the Biblical scriptures and compellingly conveys the heart of God in regard to our human sexuality. Dr. Schaumburg's passion for seeing people live in authentic relationship with God and in freedom from sexual bondage is apparent on every page. If you can only buy one book on this subject, without question it should be UNDEFILED.
Though the context of the book is sexual brokenness, the truths in this book can be applied to all forms of behavior. Hope is offered for real and lasting change by going beyond behavior management and clinical therapy models to the timeless and relevant biblical models of brokenness and restoration by the cross of Jesus Christ.
The message is for all. "Undefiled" will greatly strengthen those who have tried the shallow and typical church programs and found them lacking.
The gospel is good news. You will find it here.
