Pornography and other secret sexual sins are undermining the personal character and poisoning the private lives of countless men. The Internet has escalated the problem past the epidemic stage and into a full-fledged crisis. Here's an intensely practical and thoroughly biblical resource for men seeking help to overcome their enslavement to such evils. Christ offers the only true and lasting liberation from sin of every kind, and He provides all the spiritual resources and power we need to guard our hearts against temptation. This book clearly, carefully outlines the principles of victory and shows you how you can wage the war effectively against those secret sins of the heart.

Sexual temptation is all around us, every day. You don't even have to leave home to find yourself doing battle. And too many men are falling prey. In the process, marriages are crumbling and families are being decimated. I am thrilled this team of godly men has stepped up to speak clearly and boldly to help on such a critical subject. This book tackles the subject head on and offers sound biblical counsel. Whether you find yourself in the thick of the battle, or you desire to help others, this book will point you clearly to the only place where real help is found - God's word.
-Dennis Rainey, President, Family Life
In a day and time when Christian leaders live lives of as much sexual experimentation as non-Christians, Secret Sex Wars provides an honest analysis of this private failure-- and yet at the same time offers practical biblical solutions that if applied will enable leaders to maximize their years for Christ and not let immorality rob them of realizing their fullest potential in Christ.
-Robert W. Crummie, Pastor, Mt. Calvary Missionary Baptist Church, President, Carver Bible College

Reviewing the chapter-authors: Kidd lays the ground work for vigilantly behaving as we believe; Hargrove unveils the shallowness of passive confessions and absolutely nails the need for accountability; Felix exposits 1 Thessalonians 4:3-8 in such a way that he clearly unfolds the deception and fraud of sexual immorality; Scott, Jr. gives hugely practical encouragement in the fight for purity; Sholar clearly points out the fundamental reason for sexual enslavement and his section on frequently asked questions is presented with such godly wisdom; Charles, on putting sin to death: use a pencil for underlining because a highlighter will go dry trying to mark up this chapter, and there were so many excellent points and illustrations that one finds himself with ever-increasing hatred for sin and renewed humility before God; Kennedy not only lays out discipleship and the very key to doing it successfully, but also holds his hand out to you in this chapter by actually caringly discipling you the reader with a realistic view of the task, empathy for where you are and the courageous charge for the work to which God has called you.
Robert Scott, Jr. has compassionately crafted this book. It is wrapped in the gospel, faithful to present a godly life striving for purity and driven to accountability and discipleship. He wounds as only a friend can.

This book is a must read for every Christian male!
It's a man thing isn't it? The book was written by men, intended for men, right? Well, those were my initial thoughts. I bought the book with good intentions of sharing it with some lost man; however, I began reading the book and could not put it down. In my opinion, the book is intended for women too. A perfect example, late one night I went into a grocery store and overheard the conversation of some young ladies, "If he wants her body, he could have it, but he has to buy her a tank full of gas first." Obviously, 'she' doesn't realize her body is a temple of God. She doesn't know that her Father is rich He can provide her with all the gas in the world. I know you are probably thinking that I should have said something to them, maybe you are right; however, if I had, I probably would not be around to be writing this now. One of my greatest mentors said, "If young women were trained, then the young men would follow." That's why I know women need to read this book also. No one is exempt from the struggle. For all of you women, both young and mature that think that the book is for men only, answer this question, have you seen a nice looking, tall, handsome man with buff, muscular body and thought...? I guess you don't look, huh? Am I the only one that has a neck that can do a 360 degree stretch? I don't think so, we all have some secret fantasies of our Knight in Shining Armor. Ladies, Satan has many ways of dealing with our minds, but this book will help us to stay focused on the Word. I personally thank Pastor Bobby Scott and all the other magnificent writers of Los Angeles Bible Men Conference for writing the vision and making it plain so that anyone and everyone can read,understand and beware of the tactics of the Enemy and run with patience the run that has been set before us. Thanks again, Theo
Okay, I'm gonna be honest, when you first mentioned the "book," I thought...oh, no...it's gonna be "stuffy" and the words are gonna be "too" big, and so on, and so forth. Okay, so I was wrong...
What a spiritual arsenal to help equip Christians to take a stand for purity. Not only for the men, but, for the women as well. As I was reading the book, it seemed as though the words of the pages were jumping right at you...you can see God's handiwork has touched the lives of the men who were partakers of this spiritual endeavor.
I love to read...pretty much anything, but, I'm a bit of a "critic." When I pick up a book, the title has to grab me, then I'll flip through the pages randomly to check out the "flow" of the writing, there's a particular writing style I'm looking for and it's unexplainable. Like when you're at a restaurant and you're eating this wonderful meal, you don't know what's in it, you just know it tastes good. That's what reading is for me, especially within this book. The writing style was smooth, it had a "conversational" flow, and it was identifying. The subject matter was explosive - I connected with the writer(s).
nyone who reads this book, will "see" themselves, like peering into a mirror. Their sins will be "highlighted" and "addressed", there's no escaping it. The blessing is, solutions are provided, there is a way of escape...there is hope, and it has been boldly laid out for the whole world to see.
May God bless and encourage you all to go forth!
Your sister in Christ,
