Publisher's Description

Our world is awash in sex. We are bombarded with it everywhere we turn--TV, newspapers and magazines, music, movies and the Internet. When this ever-present temptation mixes with human weaknesses and unmet needs, many get pulled into addiction to sexually sinful behavior. They may detest their own habits, but they can't seem to break free. Is there any hope? Russell Willingham speaks from his own experience and that of the many he has counseled. His answer? "Yes! There is hope. Jesus offers forgiveness and healing." True stories show how the principles in this book can be put into action. The essentials are spelled out in practical steps that can help people begin to break free. Willingham deals with such issues as
  • what all addicts have in common
  • the hunt of the malnourished heart
  • where to find the courage to face the dark side
  • wrestling with shame and grace
  • the healing effect of radical honesty
This realistic yet hopeful book offers a new way to see the world for every person who wants to understand and break free from sexual addiction.

    As a ministry dedicated to helping men and women walk in freedom from sexual sins and brokenness, we use several resources for men dealing with sexual addictions. Repeatedly, men point to Breaking Free by Russell Willingham as one of the most helpful books we recommend.

    This work by Willingham is excellent for those who do not know what true intimacy is about and who may be wasting time trying to find the intimacy needs filled in solo sexual activity. I use it professionally and personally.

    Breaking Free is one of the most helpful books on sex addiction and recovery that I have ever read. It has a bit of a cheesy subtitle, "Understanding Sexual Addiction & the Healing Power of Jesus". But, Willingham takes one of the most unabashed Christian approaches toward recovery I have experienced. Also, he does not mince words. He is frank and to the point.The most helpful chapter for me was the one that dealt with "owning our brokenness." I cried and wept when I read it which is not something that I do very often.I highly recommend this book for Christians wanting to learn more about this addiction and how Christ can give us the strength to overcome.
