Recovery Resources: Every Man’s Battle

It is sometimes difficult to find practical guides for anything in Christian circles. With pornography this can be especially true. Often what you find is a solid theology of how wrong pornography is but not much to help you actually stop looking at it. Enter Every Man’s Battle. This book helped me during a difficult time in my ongoing recovery.

Both of the authors, Fred Stoeker and Steven Arterburn, struggled with pornography. They offer a real and compelling description of their own journeys. There is no punches pulled about the severity of the problem with pornography yet they do speak with a gracious understanding.

One point that the book emphasizes well is that simply failing to look at porn is not a recovery. If I don’t look at porn again but leave my family in shambles, that is not a win. Steven and Fred do a good job of explaining that we must love our wives well.

A good book especially for a guy who is new in recovery. It comes with my recommendation and, if you order in the next five minutes, you can expect to pay nearly the same price as you would in ten minutes.

Book Review: How to Love Your Wife

ca72582c-19db-11de-8351-000255111976_wm_png

It is not often that I read a book this honest and open about sexuality, yet tasteful. It is a true story about a king who really loves his wife and her response. How to Love Your Wife starts with a discussion of how much the queen and the king love each other and gets really romantic after that. Not for the faint (or Victorian) of heart, this book explores such topics as sexuality in marriage, oral sex, how to fight (an make up), the pain of separation, and the overcoming power of love.

How to Love Your Wife is a classic piece of literature that every Christian couple should read and imitate. Sex is not bad, it’s great!

Now, I would like to address the concern that this literature might be too erotic for a good Christian (or Victorian) to read. I have it on good authority that the Bible is supportive of How to Love Your Wife. Just take my word for it.

So check out the book, it is free online for a limited time. I promise you’ll like it.

Pro Tip: Never, ever say your wife’s belly is like a heap of wheat. Her belly is NOT like a heap of wheat.
