My (Husband's) Review

Since this book was an open and honest devotional for men's sexual purity, I gave this to my husband who agreed that this devotional was appropriate for any man of any age whether single or married. He especially liked how the daily devotionals were short and to the point and really cut to the heart of the issue quickly. He also enjoyed the practical application and discussion questions for everyday circumstances any man can find himself in. He really recommended it for a group of men who want to work on their purity, and an accountability partner to hold them to it each week which is something highly stressed in the book as well. He appreciated the game plan to make sure you have a plan for how to respond when faced with temptation rather than being caught off guard. Overall, he was happy with the way it was set up in short sections, was appropriate to do in a group, had immediate practical application, and truly did give a winning game plan to stay on top of sexual purity. Most of all, he liked that it was Bible focused from start to finish and it was raw and honest. Hope is out there for any man no matter where he is in his journey to sexual purity through the Lord! My husband recommends this for any man at any stage of life.

I received a complimentary copy of this book, and all opinions given are my own.

Guest Post from Dave

This is not a fluffy book. I talk about the real things that guys in my purity group were going through in their struggles, as well as my own story. It reflects my 10 years of leading men through their journey to purity, which is only found in Christ and with God’s power.
Some of the devotions get gritty, and real. In Revelation 12:11 it says, “ And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony.” I wanted the reader to say to themselves, “this guy is real. He’s been through this and has overcome. If he can do it, I can do it.”
I heard one writer say that you have to have that personal connection with the reader through your honesty. “You have to bleed all over the pages.” That’s what I did.
