There is no doubt that sexuality influences our society. Even companies use sexuality to target and draw people to buy their product. Because sex consumes our world, there is no way of being unaffected by it. Therefore, it is important to learn strategies to defeat the lust that arises from sexual temptation.
Every Man’s Battle or Every Young Man’s Battle (each target men in different stages of life) are books written by Stephen Arterburn and Fred Stoeker that address the issues that consume our sex-saturated world. Rather than pointing out flaws, this book shares personal stories and strategies that help men defeat sexual temptation.
The book first starts by that authors sharing personal stories. These stories are powerful because it shows the reader how easy it is to get caught up in lust. I am extremely thankful for the authors being honest enough to share these stories to help others. In essence, the first few chapters of the book show examples of how each of the authors fell into sexual temptation. The next few parts of the book show the reader how to choose authentic manhood. Rather than being a regular man who stands for nothing and has no desire to fight sexual temptation, this book shows you how to choose authentic manhood to become the man God desires.
After authentic manhood is explained, the authors brilliantly set up the next few chapters on setting defenses. Although it is great to desire sexual purity, it is impossible without any defenses…no matter who you are! The chapters deal with developing a battle plan. If there is no plan, there is no victory.
Arterburn and Stoeker explain that the eyes, mind, and heart have to be guarded. They share tactics to be able to find victory with these things.
This book is by far one of my favorite books. It has been extremely helpful for me. Being a single teenager in today’s society is hard…especially when you take a stand for sexual purity. This is one book that I would recommend to every guy. It is also a great reference book to re-read.
I would easily give this book 5 stars out of 5! I highly recommend checking out either one of these books.
