Mrs ARS5 Stars Out Of 5A very relevant readJuly 18, 2016Mrs ARSQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Fight of Your Life is a very important message and wakeup call done in the spirit of love that I believe many should read. Besides men, I believe wives and mothers should read this as well. We are in the age of anything goes and sex and pornography have been running rampant. If only people would understand that sex, in the area of marriage, is and always was a gift from the Creator God. Instead most have sold their bodies and souls for a lie and a deception in place of the truly awesome and holy gift it was meant to be. Dont be fooled, this very important subject affects our whole society and can either put us in bondage or set us free. My thanks go to the authors for writing on such a difficult and taboo subject. I was given a copy of this book for an honest review from The Book Club Network, Inc. and the opinions are my own.

Cindy J5 Stars Out Of 5Timely, encouraging, eye-openingSeptember 13, 2015Cindy JQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Fight of Your Life addresses a long avoided but much needed topic for Christians in todays culture. Authors Tim Clinton and Mark Laaser subtitled the book Manning Up to the Challenge of Sexual Integrity as the book is primarily addressed to men, but it is also encouraging readers to step up and face sexual issues as men. As a whole, Christians do not talk about sexual purity or sexual sins. Yet people everywhere are deluged daily with provocative photos and insinuating innuendos whether or not they want to partake. This book has startling statistics and stories about pornography and what age people are first exposed to it, how many people (including church goers) view it, how easily accessible it is, etc. These statistics should concern you and motivate you to address these issues in your church, in your home, and in your life.
Personal testimonies of how easy it is to become entrapped in destructive sexual behavior were eye-opening to me. Some were heartbreaking as the testifier had been innocently exposed through no real desire of his own but became addicted as a result of one encounter, usually with pornography. One of the chapters I found most fascinating was Our Plastic Brain which discusses how the brain thought processes can be redirected, or the brain can be rewired. It gives a scientific explanation for how the brain functions and why these forbidden pleasures are as physically addictive as drugs. Another chapter addresses the need to uncover the reasons behind unhealthy behaviors. Still another chapter asks if you REALLY want to be healed. Near the end of the book are chapters on accountability and recovering then holding lost ground. Both chapters provide concrete, successful examples of conversations or thought processes that will help the warrior in his battle. There is even a chapter on healing your marriage and keys to marital intimacy. Most of all, this book gives hope to those who have unhealthy sexual behaviors or addictions and are seeking a way to break those habits. It provides info for parents, teachers, and leaders in training others to avoid falling into the rituals that lead to destructive behavior.
Overall, I would highly recommend this book to any adult who has a sincere desire to motivate and encourage someone toward sexual purity. The book is very beneficial, and many aspects could be applied to other, nonsexual addictions or habits. On the down side, a couple of the middle chapters were a bit repetitive, in my opinion, and didnt always flow well. Also, I received a paperback advanced reader copy of the book, and there were some proofreading or editing errors which I would expect to be corrected in the final copy. A final note: The authors begin the book, even before the table of contents, with a crucial caution to the reader. There are temptations involved in reading a book such as this because a person may find information titillating or have a desire to do original research into the sin. We ask you to pray for strength in guarding yourself against both impulses as you move into the pages of this book.

MaryMinnesotaAge: 45-54Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Fight against sexual sin!September 5, 2015MaryMinnesotaAge: 45-54Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5"The Fight of your Life Manning up to the Challenge of Sexual Integrity" is a great book about standing up against sexual sin. This self-help guide explains not only how and why men get involved in pornography, but it also gives guidelines for how to break free. Internet pornography is an industry that continues to grow and sadly reaches many, including our children.
The Fight of your Life will challenge you to stand against the temptations of sexual sin. It will help you understand some of the changes that take place in the brain as you allow the addiction to continue. It will also encourage you to fill the empty spot in your life with God rather than with sinful behaviors. This book can help you understand why you give in to sexual sin, and help you overcome it.
Authors Tim Clinton and Mark Laaser have included real life stories, scriptural advice, questions for reflection, action steps and resources to offer you the best possible recovery. They strongly encourage seeking out accountability and support as well as give advice on fixing a marriage damaged by pornography. They remind us that with God, all things are possible.
I think this is something every parent of boys should read, as well as men struggling with sexual purity. I received this book from The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review.
