"Sex is a gift from God. When this gift is misused, it's either enslaving or heartbreaking--often it's both. As a pastor I've seen many people struggle with the destructive results of an addiction to pornography.

Every Christian leader--wait, every Christian--wait, every person--needs to read this extremely honest and valuable resource." --Pastor Philip Wagner, Oasis Church, Los Angeles, CA
"In my line of work (hip-hop), the overly sexualized culture lends itself to anything but purity; it's a world that prides itself on misogyny and sexual exploitation. I've been honored to stand beside XXXchurch.com and see the practical and real answers that they provide. It's my pleasure to introduce and endorse what they are doing with this book. I can't tell you how many emails and letters I've been able to forward to them knowing that those struggling with this can find real help for this issue. I know that this book will be able to provide the same kind of practical help that they stand for."--Jonah Sorrentino (KJ-52), hip-hop artist
