In this post I want to share with you ten books that I find quite helpful for any person fighting sexual immorality. I am sure there are many other good books out there (maybe you can leave a reply and let us all know).
Fight sexual immorality
As I wrote in one of my posts, pornography and sexual immorality are dangerous. Actually, sin of any kind (I am talking mostly about a habitual sinful life-style) if it’s not fought can lead to spiritual death.
The Bible has a lot to say about sin and how to fight sin. My purpose is to help you see what the Bible says about sexual sin through the books of some great Christian authors. I learned so much from them. Therefore, I want to encourage you to educate yourself how to fight sexual immorality. However, as always when you read a book besides the Bible, take everything with a grain of salt.
When we talk about pornography, any person needs to learn and know at least two things: 1) The dangers of pornography 2) About the tools to fight pornography. Most of the books that I know talk only about the first part—about the dangers. There are not many who provide people with practical answers.
If you are struggling to be free or if you know someone who is or might be, make sure you tell them to educate themselves. Start with reading some excellent Christian books about the topic.
What are some of my book recommendations?
1. Clean by Douglas Weiss
I already wrote a few words about this book here. Indeed, anything you read from Dr. Weiss can be truly helpful. He is a world-known expert in his field.
2. Truly Free by Robert Morris
Pastor Robert Morris does a great job in the way he speaks about sexual immorality in his book. I always enjoyed his simple yet profound way of explaining the Bible. He is one of my favorite Bible teachers. I believe in his books you will find some of the missing keys you are looking for in your recovery.
3. The Bondage Breaker by Neil T. Anderson
I like Dr. Anderson and every book I’ve read by him was of great help. In this book Dr. Anderson goes into many details explaing how one can be set free from any addiction. However, his book is about so much more.
4. Crisis in masculinity by Leanne Payne
Leanne Payne’s books are not easy to read but her books are rich in answers and one can get many precious gems from her insights. This book is one of the best written books ever about the topic of inner healing. Give yourself time to read it!
5. Fatal Attractions by Jack Hayford
A must-read for any Christian leader. I did find this book very helpful in preparing several teachings.
6. Can you be gay and Christian? By Michael L. Brown
7. The way of purity by Mike Cleveland
Perhaps I’ve should have begin with this book. By far this is the book that helped me the most in my battle with pornography. If you cannot afford to buy or read all the books I’ve mentioned, make sure you read this one. It is a thorough Bible study that can make a deep impact in your walk with God and your pursuit of holiness.
8. Holiness by J. C. Ryle
If you’ve read my blog before you know how many times I’ve recommended this book. This book is not about sexual immorality but it is about holiness. Ryle is one of my all-times favorite authors. The way he speaks about sin and holiness makes one take his walk with the Lord extremely seriously.
9. Overcoming sin and temptation by John Owen
Again, this book is not about sexual sin but it is about sin in general. I cannot say enough about Owen’s way of writing about sin, holiness, the cross and God. I enjoyed reading every page! It can be a rather hard book to read but it is worth it.
10. Healing through deliverance by Peter Horrobin
One can find many precious gems in this book. Horrobin touches on many different topics in his book—pornography and sexual immorality included. I believe this books is a must-read for any believer.
There are other authors out there like John Eldrege, Dutch Sheets, John Bevere, Richard Foster or Peter Scazzero from which I’ve learned many things. I took different things from different people and applied what I thought is good and biblically correct. I also learned a lot from secular authors like George Collins, Stanton Peele and J. K. Emezi. However, I believe any approach to freedom that does not include Jesus/Yeshua is futile.
These are my 10 book recommendations. What books helped you?
