This book is a complete revision of Dr. Mark Laaser's best-selling book, Faithful and True. Things have changed a lot in ten years, when the original edition was published, including in the area of sexual addition. Since then, internet pornography has become the number one form of sexual addiction. With pornography so readily available, maintaining a wholesome, biblical sexuality seems hopelessly beyond reach. Deeply ingrained patterns of thought and behavior keep people stuck on a treadmill of sin, even as they long for a walk of purity. This book offers a path that leads beyond compulsive thoughts and behaviors toward sexual integrity, and self-control. Sensitive to the shame of sexual addiction without minimizing its sinfulness, Dr. Laaser traces the roots of sexual addiction in families and in culture, shows how sexual sin poisons the lives of pastors and laypeople alike. He provides a complete program for treatment and recovery from sexual addiction, including the all-pervasive internet pornography.
