This is a great book to learn what lust is really about and how to combat it in our lives. Lust is not just a male problem and does not just mean dealing with pornography. Joshua Harris lets us know that God does not want us to even have a hint of lust, whether it is having impure thoughts, reading romance novels, watching romantic comedies, staring at an attractive person, etc. if it does not honor God. It was surprising to find out that he as a pastor and a married man also struggles and needs ...more

This book does a wonderful job of approaching sexual lust as not only a huge problem, but that of an even bigger problem: our rebellious heart that lusts after sin instead of God. The issue of sexual lust is an issue of holiness and whether or not one is growing in it. This book is written for both girls and guys, and it does a wonderful job of showing the similarities and differences in lustful struggles. I highly recommend this book for anyone to read.

There are many challenging statements tha

This book may not be for everyone, but it was definitely for me. It is very blunt and gives practical help for the battle against lust.
Probably what stood out the most to me in this book was what the author referred to as the key to escaping the cycle of defeat:
Embracing God's standard for holiness (not even a HINT of lust), His source of power for change (victory of Christ's death and resurrection), and His motive for fighting sin (grace - trust in the undeserved favor of God). Our human tend

This book and its prequel have created a generation of christian teens who are uneducated in sex, and fear education in it. They are pretending they have chastity devices on until marriage, ignoring healthy urges to masturbate and look at the opposite sex. Guilt reigns their lives WHEN (not if) they slip up from these unreal expectations of themselves to ignore their biological sexual impulses. Abused wives, secretly masturbating husbands, repressed souls. A generation of christian children pret ...more

Man, I don't know how I would've gotten through the last couple of months if it weren't for this book! Being a new believer to the christian faith, it is a real test to follow the path of Jesus Christ faithfully. And I have had to work really hard and gain my strength in this area a lot! This is one of the areas that I was struggling a lot in and this book gave me the confidence to believe in God in that he will give me the strength to overcome my lustful desires and provide for me.

Destry had loaned "I Kissed Dating Goodbye" to a couple friends from church who ended up buying all three of Joshua Harris's books. After reading Not Even A Hint: Guarding Your Heart Against Lust, they asked Destry if he wanted to read it because they thought it was really good.

I have to agree with them, it had some very good points and I've never read another book quite like it. Even though Destry read it before I did, I would recommend that parents read this book before handing to their teenag
Joshua Harris, best known for writing "I Kissed Dating Goodbye" , tackles the tough subject of lust in his third literary outing. Harris candidly writes about his personal struggles and also recounts stories and insights from others who have written letters to him.

The simplicity of his language and the organized chapter structure make for an easy read. In addition, the fact that he’s done his research is evidenced by the resources he quotes (C.S. Lewis, John Stott, Jerry Bridges and others.. ast
This is the best book I've read on dealing with lust and sexual sin. I highly recommend it.
Josh Harris, author of I Kissed Dating Goodbye, deals transparently with the roots of lust and the real issues behind it. Then he equips the reader with the tools needed to fight it.
The biggest problem we have in the fight for moral purity is that we've let the lies of the world influence our thinking. Josh helps us see where we've gone astray and realign with God.
One other key point about this is that i

I very rarely award books 5 stars, but this was an exception. I only wish I had read it sooner. Unfortunately, I was thrown a bit by the creepy title and so let it sit on my shelf for over a year before picking it up (it was given to me by a friend. I don't think I would have bought it based on the title/cover). Joshua Harris offers a humble and honest perspective of the damaging effects of lust in our lives. And from what I have experienced in my own life at times and in watching my friends liv ...more

Harris gives practical and godly advices for those who are struggling with lustful temptation.
I am not struggling with lustful problem but I decided to read this book because it can help me understand how to be accountable to those who do.
Harris' books are very inspirational to me!

-No one should be ashamed to want to marry young and enjoy the wife (or husband) of their youth. Marriage is GREAT.

-Keep His Word always before you. Hide it in your heart. It will keep you close to Him and
First off, I want to say how grateful I am that Josh wrote this book. I am so encouraged to know that I'm not alone in this.
Here are some interesting and relatable takeways:
1. Women do lust, but it isn't talked about as much as men
2. God created men and women as sexual creatures, putting the right desires in them to desire each other and procreate, such as men desiring to pursue a woman and a woman desiring to be pursued by a man
3. The main reason men lust is for pleasure; the main reason women
I think a lot of people from my generation will dislike this book. Holiness and sex just seem antithetical. Yet, I was thinking recently that a lot of paganism in ancient times revolved around sexuality; a lot of ancient pagan religion made sex the mode of worship. We can read about the "spirituality of sexuality" in various places regarding the worship of cerain pagan gods or goddesses, like Diana, Aphrodite, and Ashera. In fact, the "Ashera poles" were possibly phallic symbols. So the question ...more

This is a very good short, readable, gospel-centered, and practical book on this subject. Josh Harris' tone throughout the book is hope giving.

In the first three chapters he lays the foundation for the application section of the book. Chapter 3 entitled "You Can't Save Yourself: Where Can I Find the Power to Change? was worth the price of the book. It is the kind of chapter that I would give to someone to read even if they were not struggling with this specific sin, but were needing hope and re

Bien acostumbrados(as) que nos tiene Joshua con su tan concreto y práctico método al reflejar en las líneas de cada uno de sus libros las verdades bíblicas del día a día en nuestra vida; "sólo en Jesús" como dice la canción y como él mismo -Joshua- deja claramente en manifiesto, el problema siempre es del corazón y ya sabemos quién puede resolverlo. Insisto, estos aspectos prácticos son sumamente congruentes con la siembre diaria que debemos al Espíritu para seguir en esto que es, el camino de l ...more

Recommends it for: Everyone 15 & up
I thought this was a very well written , un-intimidating look at the sin of lust. The author spoke about this problem without giving inappropriate descriptions. I think it would be good for people to read this wether they think they have a problem with lust or not .
I think that the principles in here can be used towards any unhealthy activity that comes between us and the Lord. Wether it be an addiction, Food , television or money.
He talked about how Lust is a greed problem and how god made se

I've heard that short stories "begin when you put the book down". I find that to be true with Christian books as well. They may be good or otherwise while reading, but their real impact will only be visible in the life change that they begin. Anyway, Josh Harris has a lighthearted, comfortable writing style that I like a lot. He aslo goes right at the tough issues without being gross or squeamish.
Very good book: definately the most insightful look at lust per se I've ever seen, and comes with s
I did not like the book because there were explanations and teachings that were inaccurate to Catholic knowledge; maybe because it was written by a Christian author. Anyway, not that I am being biased but it just confused me now with my knowledge with the teachings I already know and I regret reading it. I wasted my money on buying the book because it just made me doubt the teachings I already know especially when the author said, "Jesus was completely human and that He also had sexual urges and ...more
I absolutely loved this book. If you're a Christian (male or female) and struggle with lust I think it is imperative that you read this! I honestly wish I would have read this to grasp a better understanding of the topic of lust way earlier, I hope parents of teens encourage their children to read this book!

Joshua Harris does an amazing job of addressing male and female struggles throughout the book. He gives honest and truthful examples and opinions from not only himself, but other struggling
I was recently convincted once again of my own sinful nature of the past few years and decided to revisit this book again even as I renewed my own personal efforts in my struggles.

I've always enjoyed Harris' writings which I believe are filled with Biblically-convicting truths - that our sinful nature is the true cause and relying on our own strengths will get us no where. Harris writes with pleadfulness, understanding and never condemning. He lays out the principles that believers need to unde
I love how this book talks about the thought process of lust. I think that a lot of people believe they are ok because they haven't done anything wrong physically,but it's the mind that leads them to wrongful actions and thinking about something wrong or doing something wrong is a sin. We need to protect our minds and what we put into them through our eyes and ears. The author talks about what kinds of movies we should avoid, as well as other precautions we can take to have a more pure mindset a ...more
OK, the reason for my low score is that this book stated that it was intended for both men and women. Clearly not. Every application was addressed toward a man and his common area of slip-ups. Wish that the intro would have lived up to its word.
I was hesitant to read this, as most Joshua Harris books I've read come down to legalism and I always felt like the readers who mostly follow him are people afraid to have any freedom in Christ. This book, for the most part, was a refreshing change. While I still feel like it had a lot more of his ideas and experiences rather than the bibles, it was very well put together and had some important truths about lust and any other sin really, and gave many great tactics as to how to battle lust, maki ...more
This was wonderful and practical book that applies to so many areas other than lust. I liked that it spoke to women as well as men. I read some romance novels in high school and recognize the danger that comes from them for women. I found the directive to keep applying the gospel and not think of a list of rules as the way to combat sin a necessary reminder that sin cannot be fought by legalism. The law is to show us how much we need Christ and grace and that through focus on the cross and trust ...more
This is the best book on this topic I've read. It's honest and clear without going too far, it's biblical and gospel-centred, and it's very practical and helpful. Starts with an affirmation that "sex is not the problem (lust is)" -- which is the title of the new version of the book -- in a helpful reminder that sexuality is healthy and God given. Next is the simple message that our only hope of reaching God's high standard ("not even a hint of sexual immorality", Ephesians 5:3) is through grace ...more

I think this book definitely covers the fundamentals in the most unintimidating way. This is probably better suited to non-believers who are struggling with lust, and other forms of temptations they feel they have no control over.

It was rather nice to read and reflect over the habitual sins that God has helped me and others overcome (or otherwise, in the process of overcoming!) from the start of my walk with Him, for without Him we can truly do nothing!

It might have been better if it were more

Great book. Helped me know how to think and develop a pure mind.

Another great book by Joshua Harris. I loved his other books, I Kissed Dating Good-bye and Boy Meets Girl: Say Hello to Courtship very much, and wanted to read this one. Sex is Not the Problem (Lust is), I found to be a really good book about lust and other such problems… both for men and women. It explores how women struggle with lust too, which I found to be very interesting and helpful. A wonderful guide to recognizing lust as sin, and steps to keeping it from your life; I recommend this boo ...more
This was an amazing book of encouragement for fighting lust and how to handle it in God's way. There are scriptual backing to everything he talks about, and he gives some personal accounts as well. I read this because I run a ministry about modesty and purity and wanted some better insight, which he covered both in the book. What an excellent job! I recommend that every Christian read this in general because even if you don't have a lust problem, it can help you understand being accountable to t ...more

I read this book, a chapter every day, in my devotions, and it didn't take me long to read this easy-to-read, easy-to-understand book about lust and purity. The question of what to set before one's eyes is not just a problem for guys, but we girls also need to be careful about what we watch, what we read, what we do, because what we see - especially tv and movies in this day and age - tends to stick with us for a long time. This was a very challenging, very convicting read, and my heart was real ...more
I read this book in one day. It was a very easy read. It had some helpful points and I appreciated his abundance of Scripture refs. My disappointment was in his lack of clear explanation of what lust is. It's still not clear in my mind. I heavily appreciate this book and would recommend it to lots of my guy friends. It was a good research book for my project as well. This book also reminded me a lot of Randy Alcorn's Purity Principle

Good book, but not the best. I'm giving it a 3.
