Product Description

Clay Crosse was a soaring success in Christian music, but his secret sin threatened everything. He burst onto the contemporary Christian music scene with his 1994 hit "I Surrender All." And over the next four years, his star climbed higher and higher with more number one hits and sold-out concerts. But beneath his success lurked a dark secret: He was addicted to pornography. No one knew he had a problem-not even Clay-until the day God took away his singing voice. What followed was the story of the power of grace and forgiveness. Now Clay and Renee tell their story with the prayer that it will help countless other marriages-perhaps even yours.

Publisher's Weekly

Contemporary Christian singer Clay Crosse shares his journey as a performer whose 1994 number-one hit, "I Surrender All," captured the attention of the Christian music scene as he secretly battled a consuming addiction to pornography. Crosse tells how a mysterious throat ailment stopped him cold, causing his financial world to tip precariously, and bringing the realization that the road he was traveling was surely going to end in the demise of his marriage, crushing both his faith and his career. Telling his sobering story, Crosse takes turns with wife, Renee, as they candidly reveal the desperate condition to which their spiritual and marital lives had deteriorated before Crosse acknowledged his addiction. After he confessed that he would have had sex with any woman who offered, Crosse and his wife started a harrowing journey toward building a relationship characterized by trust and accountability. Renee had to struggle to overcome a wide range of feelings, including a sense of inadequacy as a wife, as well as hurt and anger at her husband's betrayal. Many Christian readers will appreciate the candor of the Crosses' story, which offers a fragile but persistent message of redemption. (Sept.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

While targeting one sin—pornography--I Surrender All smashes directly at the basis of all sin. This right-between-the-eyes book is a must read for every Christian.
Clay and Renee Crosse had everything worldly Christians ever hope for: fame, fortune, a beautiful home and family, selfishness cleverly disguised as Christian living. Then Clay, a newly-famous Christian singer, began to lose his voice. His long-standing addiction to pornography was bearing its evil fruit. God finally had Clay's attention.
I Surrender All tells this story from both Clay’s and Renee's standpoint. Clay speaks of his long coast toward Sodom, how God intervened, how he had to confess it to Renee, and his daily battle to stay with God and renounce lust. Renee describes her desperation, fear, bitterness, forgiveness, and the day to day struggle to cope with Clay's betrayal. Both confess the shallow Christianity that led to this sin. The subsequent sections describe, in their own words, how, with God's constant help, they rebuilt their lives. Some of the chapters are: Winning the Battle of the Mind; Discovering God's Design for Marriage; Recovering Passion; and Out of the Ashes. Their experiences make what they say about the American sex-drenched way-of-life believable. What the Crosse's assert about shallow Christianity leading into deep sin, and the desperate need to live totally as God's person, is superbly relevant for you and me no matter what our besetting sins might be.
Clay and Renee Crosse's experiences have brought them passionately close to their Lord and they now minister in tandem at their church, on the concert circuit, and in marriage enrichment seminars. Christian author and chaplain, Mark Tabb's literary expertise brings coherence and clarity to this important book. – Donna Eggett, Christian Book Previews.com

    I needed a book to help rebuild my marriage and to help my husband see my side of what I was feeling, so he could better understand what I was going through. This book far exceeded our expectations! Not only did it help him see what I was feeling, it helped me to see what I was feeling and it helped us have a deeper relationship with God! It has helped us rebuild our marriage. I always thought our marriage was a good one, but after reading this book it showed me our marriage wasn't as good as it really should be, and it showed me the path of destruction. I got a chance to see what other men also struggle with. This book will also help you (women) to take a deeper look at yourselves so you can help your men overcome this deep dark horrible mess. It will also help all of us take a stand on what our society "thinks" is normal acceptable behavior. There is lots of scripture to look at, to back everything that is written. Blessings :)

    Blessings to Clay and Renee for sharing their personal story. Many people are struggling with sexual addictions today. As the wife of a husband working through his addiction, Renee's testimony gave me a place to begin. Clay's testimony helped me to better understand the struggles my husband is working through. My husband is reading it now and has learned a lot about me through Renee's story. Most of all, this book gave us confirmation of letting God be in the forefront of this battle. It is too big for us to fight alone. Thank you Clay and Renee and may God continue His good works through you.

    The product is a learning tool for anyone who has suffered any issues in life. It is not just about pornography. It is about putting God first in your life and your relationship with Him. Well written and so much to learn. I love Clay's music and when I heard about his suffering, my heart ached. He was blessed with the most beautiful voice. I am happy that God allowed him to sing those beautiful messages when he did. I will cherish those CDs that I have. I Surrender All is one of my favorite songs. God bless the Crosse family. Thank you God for the message and messages in the songs.

    This is a great book for anyone who is going through this. Clay and Renee clearly explain how your daily life can encourage such behavior. Thank you for having the courage to write this book. God is faithful to find you where you are and bring you back to Him.

    I highly recommend this book for any woman who is dealing with the feelings of betrayal and broken trust caused by her husband's use of pornography. This was one of the very few books I could find written to comfort and encourage the wife. It helped to hear Clay's perspective, then to read Renne's reactions and thoughts... how comforting that someone else thought the very same things I did. This book gives hope for a renewed, healthy marriage in the wake of pornography use.
