The best book I've read on a topic which needs to be more commonly discussed among Christians. Starts by applying the gospel to the heart issues that lead to porn use before getting to practical strategies. Quite frank and full on at times, not a book to read casually. I'm becoming more of a Tim Chester fan with every one of his books that I read.

A brilliant book that is blunt and rough where necessary and well written to be graceful and not only condemn sin but provide practical advice to survive against temptation and rehabilitate a biblical understanding of intimacy in marriage and purity in singleness
