I am not one of these women who don't believe a man cannot speak into my circumstances and have something worth to say regarding my pain. Anyone who brings God's Word to me and offers me hope can do that regardless of their gender, so I am not criticizing this book because it was half written by a man. What I do want to bring across is that the book promises one thing and does anything but that.
I want to briefly share my story. Just two weeks ago I discovered my husband's horrible secret, that for his entire life he has struggled with the pull towards lust of looking at naked women. He did not share that deep struggle before we married and thought he could "control it". Things got much worse 6-8 years ago when the personal computer, then ipad, then iphone all entered our home. Even though we had safeguards on our computers for our kids' sake and I held all passwords he found other ways. The last 8 years or so have been a constant struggle for him. Being held captive for 2-3 months to graphic pornography (no longer just naked women), renouncing it thinking he could 'handle it' for 2-3 months and the cycle would continue until I discovered what was going on.
Of course the hurt and pain came in like a flood leaving me numb with anger, and raw from the pain of the constant lies and betrayal. However, God very quickly intervened and gave me the grace to forgive him and filled me with compassion as I began to understand the depth of bondage and despair he had been in for so many years. As i looked to God's Word and prayed with my husband and saw him take steps to overcome I began to feel some hope.
It was at that point I felt I needed to read some books by people who had experienced my pain and see if they could map out a path to lead me through the mine field of emotions that lay before me. As I began to read this book it quickly became apparent that it was going to be a difficult read for me. The authors felt the need to explain in great details the male sexuality and the pull towards visual gratification and the traps that that brings. Coupled with that, throughout the book are "testimonies" of other men who have struggled through pornographic addiction. I decided to wade through the first chapters that seemed to endlessly explain all of this hoping that eventually they would get to the "good stuff" .... how do I personally deal with the hurt?
Each time I would pick up the book I would be forced to put it down after a chapter or two as my mind would begin to fill with all the horrible things my husband must have been doing and as that filled my mind the hurt and the fears with flood me with new pain. Where was the help?!!
Finally, just yesterday (Father's Day!) we had lavished my husband with love and gifts hoping to bless him. We (he and I) were in a good place after an especially good weekend together. He left to run an errand and I decided to pick up the book again. Big mistake! By the time my husband got home I was angry and hurt all over again. He was confused and hurt and didn't know what to say to me. By the time the evening was over we felt like we had destroyed all the Lord had tried to work in us this past two weeks! All because I'd read this stupid book again!!
I have always tried to understand my husband as a man and his sexual needs, what drives him. I am no prude in bed and would always at least try what ever he wanted thinking I was blessing him (and I was). I know now pornography is not about him not loving me but it's a trap of Satan. I'm saying that to explain that I did not need a book to graphically lay out for me again why he'd fallen into sin, I needed something to help me as a wife deal with the pain.
If they had just titled this book for what it really was it would be "no harm, no foul" but they're marketing this book to be something it is not. This is a dangerous book for a hurting woman to read. If you've managed to get through this long review my final words are if you are hurting or if you are trying to help someone who is hurting DO NOT READ THIS or recommend this book!!!!!
I am considering writing the authors themselves because they should know how this book actually inflicts more pain rather than helps.
