Recently i returned to reading, and to a wonderful resource known as Booksneeze.com, which offers the opportunity to read and review books that have been recently published. I was reading the titles, and so many jumped at me as something i should be taking the time to enjoy. But every now and then a book comes along that seems like it would help to expand both my husband and my understanding of issue, and struggles common to us. While neither of us have struggled with the deep addiction of pornography, we have each witnessed good people fall into this trap, and become entangled. We offer to pray, but there seemed to be more that can be done. We selected Finally Free: Fighting for Purity with the Power of God by Heath Lambert as one such text to help expand our ability to minister to others.
Heath compiled a nicely organized book on how to work through breaking the shackles of the addiction to pornography by hitting the root cause. Like a carpenter or craftsman, Heath begins to add tools that will help, will make a difference. Some of what he wrote was not startling, yet it was good reminder that we are each our brother’s keeper, and we should spend effort building into each other, looking out for each other and helping others through times of struggle and temptation by offering substitutions.
The book starts out slow, and i found myself frustrated with the constant repetition of statements, much like the annoying person that keeps asking “did you get that?” after every sentance. But pushing through those first chapters it was well worth the read. I would recommend this primarily for men, however the information is universal, and could easily be applied to other issues we battle in this christian life.
