Hope and Healing to Break Free From Sexual Addiction

There is a battle going on. Millions of victims are trapped in the struggle of sexual addiction with no apparent way out. Pure Desire is the answer to this desperate cry for help from men and women who have tried to build sexual holiness into their lives and failed...and failed...and failed. This book is also for the shattered souls of mates who are puzzled, shamed, and wounded by their husband's or wife's sexual bondage and secret life. And, this book is for the Church to come alongside those who have come to them for help.

Here is hope for establishing healthy personal boundaries with proven, practical applications to claim Christ's healing power and presence, perhaps for the first time. If you, someone you love, or someone you are counseling struggles with sexual addiction, Pure Desire is an anchor amid rough waters and the offer of a new appreciation for Christ's healing power and presence. The time is now to begin walking in victory and help others to do the same. Learn how to tackle this issue with confidence, clarity, and biblical perspective.

On these pages he is taking us to the fountainhead of wisdom--God's Word. Count on discoveries that will bring fruitfulness and durability to your life.

There are too few resources that adequately deal with the heartbreaking issue of sexual addiction. Ted Robert's uniquely biblical approach to healing and hope makes this book a great asset to both the struggler and the helper.
