Even though Sexual Detox is rather short, it is jam packed with great content. The book seeks to address the struggles men have with pornography and masturbation and to help lead the reader into a proper, biblical view of our sexuality. Sexual Detox is broken up into six chapters, Reality of Pornography; Pornography vs. Marriage; A Theology of Masturbation; Four Gifts of Sex; Detox in the Bedroom and Detox in Your Soul. These chapters each end with a short section of questions called Think. The Think sections are designed for you to talk through in a community of trusted guys who will help you overcome the sinful temptations that assault us all. At the end of Sexual Detox, Cruciform Press adds a great sermon from C.H. Spurgeon entitled, "Comfort for the Tempted" on 1 Cor. 10.13.The content of this book is stellar. As a youth pastor, husband and guy I have read many books that look at the problems addressed in Sexual Detox. Many times these books have great content but always seem to leave you wondering just what the author means. They tend to show the problem and sinful acts of sexual behavior but never draw a hard and fast biblical line as to what can and can't be done. Sexual Detox not only calls sin for what it is, a blatant offense to a glorious God, but it also confronts the many 'gray' areas we often try to hide in.Sexual Detox is not only firmly biblical, but also immensely practical. This book can be of great help to men who have struggled, are struggling or could struggle (which is all of us) with pornography, masturbation or a distorted view of their sexuality. The questions at the end of each chapter make it ideal for use in an adult men's small group or fight club.
In his book, Sexual Detox, Tim challies offers simple, biblical counsel for men who are struggling with the tragic impact of pornography on their sexuality. Challies understands the prevalence and the destructiveness of pornography, and he speaks in his book to the hearts of men who need God's help to again view sex rightly.Positives Challies writes in a way that is open and frank without crossing the line into being crude. Often, in a book on this topic, the author, in order to prove he is a real guy with real guy struggles, will share too much with his readers in too descriptive a way. Challies does not fall into this pattern. This is good, as Challies performs the rare feat of talking about issues of lust without stirring up dangerous images in his readers' minds. Challies plan of organization in this work is also effective. Before he gets into the nuts and bolts of what men need to do, he spends two chapters helping guys to develop a biblical theology of their sexuality. This is good, as men need to first understand what God has taught on this issue before they can make lasting changes that honor God. This book is also an extremely easy read. A pastor could give Sexual Detox to a young man who is struggling and not fear that the terminology will be too much. This book could possibly even be used with youth so long as the youth minister or a parent worked with the young men to get through some of the issues in the text.Negatives A slight negative that I have regarding this book is that, because of its readily accessible writing style, arguments are not always as thoroughly made as I might prefer. On occasion, Challies will tell us that "This is the reason that...
