“Every man who knocks on the door of a brothel is looking for God.” —G. K. Chesterton
What if a lust for porn is really a search for true passion?

In a world where there are 68 million searches for pornography every day and where over 70 percent of Christian men report viewing porn in the last year, it’s no surprise that more and more men struggle with an addiction to this false fantasy. Common wisdom says if they just had more willpower or more faith, their fight would be over. Is the answer really that simple?

According to counselor and ministry leader Michael John Cusick, the answer is no—but the truth may be much more freeing. Backed by Scripture, Cusick uses examples from his own life and from his twenty years of counseling experience to show us how the pursuit of empty pleasure is really a search for our heart’s deepest desire—and the real key to resistance is discovering and embracing the joy we truly want.

Cusick’s insights help listeners understand how porn struggles begin, what to do to prevent them, and most importantly, how to overcome the compulsion once it begins. In the end, this powerful audiobook shows us all how the barrier built by porn addiction can become a bridge to abundant life.

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mike Crews | 9/6/2013

    " This book was very disappointing. In a few ways it was good at diagnosing the problem, but woefully inadequate in proposing the solution. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 9/1/2013

    " It's a little preachy on the spiritual side, but he does cover multiple sides of the issue. All too often they're try to say that its all a mind game when the truth is that it does have a physical impact on you. Overall, not too bad a book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeni | 6/2/2013

    " Not the first book I've read on the subject, but a good one. The end of the book was the most interesting and thought-provoking for me, so it's worth it to make it to the last couple of chapters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gregory Rothbard | 3/8/2013
