You're surrounded by sex constantly--in movies, on TV, video games, music, the Internet. Is it any wonder that it feels impossible to stay sexually pure?
How do men survive the relentless battle against the onslaught of lust?
With powerful ammunition.
The authors of the hard-hitting mega-bestseller Every Mans Battle know the temptations young men face every day. The fact is, you can achieve victory over sexual compromise.
Every Young Mans Battle shows you how to rise above today's debased, self-seeking culture by examining God's standard, training your eyes and mind, cleaning up your thought life, and developing a plan. With extensive updates for a new generation of men, this is the award-winning guide to practical resistance. Bottom line: these strategies are biblical and they have worked for millions of men.
Experience real hope for living the way God designed. Enter the battle.

Praise for Every Young Mans Battle
"Every Young Mans Battle does the best job I have ever seen on the subject
of sexual temptation. Once upon a time we lived in a world that didnt talk
about secrets, and that world has brought us to the mess we are in today.
Young men must have an honest, blunt, and unashamedly Christian look
at their sexuality. This book will save thousands of future marriages."
Jim Burns, president, YouthBuilders
"I have never read a book as direct and open as Every Young Mans Battle.
The profound principles communicate the authors personal experiences
and provide the hope that anyone can overcome a day-to-day battle with
impure thoughts. Every Young Mans Battle helps you see the importance of
taking control over your eyes, your mind, and your heart so that you can
completely honor God in every facet of your life."
Scott Bullard, of musical recording group Soul Focus
"Its encouraging to see some real men stand up and sound the alarm to
young men. Stephen, Fred, and Mikes courage to tell their stories exposes
what has unfortunately become a dirty little secret among men in the
church. The battle cry of the day is for men of all ages to live a pure and
holy life, and this book will crush Satans strategy by giving the troops the
guts to talk about what has been taboo in the church for so long. The
authors poignant stories paint a picture of battle in which all men can
relate and offer hope and camaraderie to win the war."
Troy Vanliere, artist/manager (representing NewSong,
Carolyn Arends, Soul Focus, Jadyn Strand, and Glad)
"There has been a gaping void in the search for holiness, and Every Young
Mans Battle addresses those issues where others have been comfortably
silent. If there is even a spark of desire for purity in your life, this book will
kindle that fire… It is possible to walk in victory, as you will surely find out
after reading the Every Man series."
Matt Butler, of musical recording group NewSong
RobertNanaimo, BCAge: 18-24Gender: male3 Stars Out Of 5Good for some peopleJuly 31, 2013RobertNanaimo, BCAge: 18-24Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 3Meets Expectations: 3I went to a christian school, and we went through this book in my Grade 12 Bible class. Some benefitted with some of the tips, but some of my friends who didn't struggle with the issue initially encountered difficulties with lust after reading. The descriptions are pretty provocative, and can start some bad thought processes especially for somebody who really struggles with sexual addiction.
All in all, I've found that after trying to apply their strategies and tactics, including the "starving the sumo," I found my problems only worsened. This book helped me realize that my problems came from my heart, and not just my surroundings.
If somebody's sexual sin is a result of the environment they put themselves in, this book can be very helpful. If you aren't sure why you struggle with sexual sin, I would also recommend this book, as it can help you diagnose where your temptation is really coming from.
Being somebody who is working through these issues myself, there are some things I wish I would have known before I read this book. My first recommendation to anybody who struggles with sexual sin is to speak with your pastor or some (Christian) authoritative figure in your life who can speak to your situation.

Since then we gave it to a 14 year old girl who was a flirt and believer. She had no idea what young men go through until she read it! My, now 15 year old son wanted another copy so he bought one for himself.

If you or your teen or are already dealing with this issue, all it does is give you new graphic images to lust after and is a how to guide on sexual gratification. As a parent of a teenage son and daughter myself, I understand the need for straight forward talk about sex. However, it doesn't need to be straight out of the gutter to get the point across.
RepsUKAge: 45-54Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5BrilliantJune 11, 2012RepsUKAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I was really worried about my two boys entering the world of sexual availability. It seems that today free sex is everywhere and that does not feel good at all. I saw this book and thought I would give it a go. I am so glad that I did. Written in an easy format that is difficult to put down once started. I could not believe how direct, appropriate and honest this book is. It gets to the bones of what is causing us problems in today's society. One of the best purchases I have done and feel that a lot of pressure and worry and been eliminated from me. I can now help the boys to be, and maintain being, authentic.
