I recently heard Dan Gray, one of the authors, give a presentation on this topic at a church seminar. I attended this lecture as part of my responsibilities for church, but as a mother and grandmother, it made me more aware of this awful addiction that plagues our society and made me even more concerned for my family. I wish I had had this knowledge when my children were younger. This is such an important topic for all to know about, but especially parents in the process of raising children. Dr....more
In today's world, everyone should have this in their library.

Tonight at tithing settlement I saw this book on my Bishop's desk and I said, "Oh, I LOVE that book!" And he responded, "They should gives cases of this book to Bishops!" Then he proceeded to tell me how he handles the issue (following the advice of this book) and I was just so so happy that he's my Bishop because he really takes this seriously--he reads to women from the book to make sure they know it's not their fault, he makes it cl...more

I've given a lot of thought into whether or not I was ready to review this book. I've had the cloud of shame that accompanies addiction for 18 years. In March of 2012, I began my battle with pornography addiction. This book, along with professional counseling, has helped me foster a new kind of relationship with Jesus Christ. I am clean now, and forgiven. More importantly, I have learned ways to stay "sober", so to speak. These authors give countless ideas and guidance backed by scripture and pr...more

This is a collection of essays from "individuals, loved ones, ... leaders," and professionals. Well chosen, helpful.
Well, if you got this far in my list you might be wondering about this one. I'll just say I found this book immensely helpful and moving. I think the title is quite direct and says it all. Each chapter was written by a different person, with a different angle. Some were less helpful than others, but overall great. This book has earned the highest place of book honor: it sits on my toilet, an esteemed place of high reading. But hey, I'm actually reading it again, but didn't want to draw too much...more
An excellent source for preventing, dealing with, and healing pornography addictions. Unfortunately pornography is rampant and everywhere in our society today; even the best can fall into it and cause devastation in their families. This book helps not only the addicted, but their families find understanding and healing.

The best book I've read on confronting a pornography addiction. This book addresses why pornography is destructive and how the addiction is perpetuated in the first section. The second section has chapters for spouses and leaders. The third section is all about ending the addiction and recognizing withdraw, etc.
One of the best books written for anyone who wants to understand how to help themselves of someone they love who struggles with pornography addiction.

This book is a series of essays that will give anyone an introduction to the detrimental effects of pornography use on the user and his loved ones.
