Publisher's Description

Lust isn't just a guy problem – it's a human problem. And unless we honestly confront it, lust will destroy our relationships and our lives. Joshua Harris, author of the runaway bestseller I Kissed Dating Goodbye, calls a generation bombarded with images of sexual sin back to the freedom and joy of holiness. This "PG-rated" book – straightforward without being graphic – speaks to those entrenched in lust or just flirting with temptation. Honestly sharing his own struggles, Harris exposes lust's tactics and helps readers create a personal plan for fighting back. Men and women will find hope in God's grace and learn the secrets to lasting change.

Neither sex nor sexuality is our enemy. We need to rescue our sexuality from lust so we can experience it as God intended.

Bestselling author Joshua Harris shows you how lust deceives you. Specific and honest without being graphic, this book–for both men and women–will guide you in creating a custom plan for fighting lust and celebrating purity.

Praise for Sex Is Not the Problem (Lust Is)

"For your joy and Christ’s honor, I commend this book to you. It is realistic, practical, and hope-giving."
-John Piper, pastor of Bethlehem Baptist Church, Minneapolis

"A beautiful blend of grace and truth. Joshua Harris raises high standards of holiness while carefully avoiding legalism. I highly recommend it."
-Randy Alcorn , bestselling author of The Treasure Principle and The Purity Principle

"I am very encouraged that my longtime friend Josh Harris has written a book about lust. May God use this book to keep many from allowing their minds to become ’the devil’s playground.’"
-Rebecca St. James, singer/songwriter

Story Behind the Book

"I was preparing a message on lust when I realized that the book I wanted to consult hadn’t been written. That book would make it clear that only Jesus Christ can free us from the hopeless treadmill of shame and guilt that so many well-intentioned people end up on. It would instill a love for holiness and a hatred for sin without dragging the reader’s imagination through the gutter. And it would be for both men and women, because I’ve learned that lust isn’t just a guy problem–it’ s a human problem."
–Joshua Harris

    I have enjoyed reading the other books by Joshua Harris and this book was no different. With examples from his own life, stories of other people and great truths from the Bible, Joshua makes it clear about what is lust, who struggles with it (everyone), the ways people are tempted by it, and how to identify your weak points. There is no 'secret' to ridding your life of lust, but he offers very practical points on how 'starve' lust and to turn your focus back to God. It definitely opened my eyes and helped me confess my struggle to God and find freedom. I recommend to anyone who is struggling with pornography, sexual addiction, a bad thought life, obsession with fantasy, and so much more.

    This product answers many questions regarding sexuality and all of the issues a young man faces in this realm as he is developing. It has truly opened my eyes to see that sexuality is not a sin, but rather the improper practice of sexuality, i.e. pornography, lust, and any other behavior that the Bible would term fornication. I would recommend this to personal friends who I know are struggling in this area, and I would even recommend it for proactive measures - teaching young men about these issues BEFORE they begin to occur.

    Incredible! Finally a book that takes an honest look at virtually every aspect of lust with a Biblical worldview. Josh tackles the issues of pornography, immodesty, masturbation, and others with clear Biblical answers to how we should deal with them. VERY helpful practical advice and strategies on how to fight lust and WIN. Highly recommended to guys AND girls. I was recently facing this issue of lust in my life, and this book helped my walk immensely.

    Lust is something so many people struggle with. This book is a very honest and biblical approach to dealing with lust. I recommend it for anyone searching for good Christian insight to dealing with this sin that leaves so many in defeat. It should also be noted that this book is not just written for men. It is written by a man, but the truths contained in the scripture and guidance given can be applied to either male or female who are struggling. This book will get you on the right track to freedom through God's grace and seeking help through Christ.
