Praise for Tactics

“In the warfare being waged by many who seek to withstand temptation or overcome bondage in the arena of rampant darkness surrounding sexual issues, Tactics is a resource that will aid or rescue many.”
Dr. Jack W. Hayford, chancellor, The King’s College and Seminary; founding pastor, The Church On The Way

“My good friend Fred Stoeker has crafted the weapons and given you a battle plan to protect and guard your heart as well as restore moral purity when you’ve fallen. All of Stoeker’s books will be must reads between this grandpa and his grandsons in building godliness and preparing my boys for the good fight.”
Dr. Gary Rosberg, president of America’s Family Coaches, and author of The 5 Sex Needs of Men and Women and Divorce-Proof Your Marriage.

Tactics hits the issues head-on, and helps young men understand how innocent actions turn into addiction. With porn available on iPods, and lust-driven social sites online like Myspace and Facebook, Fred gives real tools that can help any guy win this important battle.”
Brandon Cotter, CEO and founder, Pure Online (www.pureonline.com)

Tactics is a brilliant addition to the groundbreaking Every Young Man’s Battle–insightful and practical as it dismantles lies and shame, a gift of freedom and truth.”
John & Lisa Bevere, cofounders of Messenger International and authors of Heart Ablaze and Kissed the Girls and Made Them Cry

“Engaging in a topic so many people are afraid to talk about, Tactics takes us into the locker room and shows us the playbook, pointing out the opponent’s strengths, challenging us to continue to train hard, and reminding us that we have a loving Father who shows up at every game cheering us on. Fred is the father many of my generation wish they had. His words on sexual purity–the specific damage and rewards to one’s social life when one radically commits to it–are some of the most insightful I’ve come across.”
Glenn Lavender and Jeremy Thiessen of the Dove-Award-winning band, Downhere

By Brenda Stoeker on May 8, 2007
Format: Paperback
I have been part of my husband's life for twenty-five years and have read everything he has written, and I believe that Tactics is easily his best book. I am not alone. We constantly get wonderful emails from readers, like this one from Sergio: "I just finished reading your whole book, and I found Tactics to be so much more powerful than Every Man's Battle or Every Young Man's Battle. The one thing that I cherished most was learning how to worship in song before praying--it has really given me a more rewarding conversation with our Lord. I also learned so much about my physical and mental make up than I did in the first books. I thought I could control myself like I did when I quit smoking some years ago by carrying an open pack of cigarettes in my shirt pocket for six months until I realized I didn't need it anymore and threw it away. This battle is much stronger, and I need better tactics in the battle. I plan now on purchasing and distributing this book Tactics to a lot of guys I've talked to that have the same struggles I had." I hope you take the time to read Tactics and to become the kind of man my husband has become for me, one that I can trust at all times in all places, whether I'm with him or not. God bless you as you read.

As a 27 single male I highly recommend this book. It is a great follow up to Every Young Man's Battle and HERO both by Stoeker and both I highly recommend as well. I think all of these books are great especially HERO. Tactics goes into how much our eyes influcence our thoughts during this battle and ways to shield them to make overcoming the battle a little easier. After reading this book you will realize just how much sensuality we come into contact with and how much that gets us guys going and also desensitized we have become wanting a better "high".

If your not a book reader...this could be the book for you. I say this because just after reading the first couple of sentences, you don't feel like you're reading anymore. Instead, you feel as though you are finally being understood. If there is some insight to make any sort of sense about why I feel and act the way I do, I want to know. I'm not one to enjoy having the wool pulled over my eyes so I must say I am quite a skeptical person, but when I started to read this book, I found that this book is about us (men) and it is for us and it is from us. God uses Fred to deliver a humble message of truth in the area of men's sexuality and incredible insight in why we feel what we feel, act the way we act, and how and why we are effected so greatly in the visual (our eyes) department.
If you want to read a book that can set you straight in the area of men's battle with staying pure and lay a strong foundation based on knowledge and faith then don't waist anymore time. I recommend this book only to men who are serious about fully understand themselves and taking charge of their life. Like it or not, as men we are responsible for protecting and leading our families with spiritual authority. This book is such a helpful tool in our quest for being men of integrity.

I grew up with little to no guidance from my father, regarding sexual purity. I learned about sex through, my friends, my girlfriends, and on my own. I struggled with masturbation from about 15 to 24. I could not break the cycle, until I threw myself before the Lord. I was miraculously delivered a short time before I met my wife, (Good timing, huh?), but I have continued to have wandering eyes. I have read 1 or 2 of Fred's previous books and maybe half heartedly tried to bounce my eyes. I know that it has hindered my devotional time with the Lord. Since I have been reading "Tactics", I have made an effort to not look at other women, and it has been easier than I thought. Granted, old habits are hard to break. The part about being a "Peeping Tom" hit me right between the eyes. I am following Fred's example of how to praise and worship God. He has taught me more about devotional time than anybody else that I know. Thank you, Fred.

I am so thankful that there are men like Fred Stoeker in the world. Lust is such a tough topic to be open about with the people that are close to me and I have often felt so isolated and alone. The day I read Every Man's Battle several years ago was the day that I began to stand and fight the battle of sexual purity. Tactics is a much needed follow up resource for men, like myself, who want to continue winning this battle. It is not just a bunch of hype, but gives great insight and application on "how to" succeed in the war against lust. Fred constantly points people to Christ and keeps Him in the center in his writing. It is obvious that Fred has God's favor on his life and in his writings. As a man, I am thankful that Tactics was written. I recommend it highly!! Thanks Fred.

This is truly a wonderful book. Fred Stoeker is an excellent author! This book helped me to gain a relationship with God that I had never experienced before. Since reading it, I have begun to see God not only as God but also as a loving father. It was extremely encouraging and has been highly instrumental in my walk with the Lord. Come men, come women. Anyone who wants to gain a better understanding and relationship with a loving God should read this book.
