This book was published over a decade ago, and my only disappointment in it is that I didn't read it sooner. It offers practical help, and gives the reader hope for tomorrow.
This book is the most frank and REAL book I have read on this topic. It had me in tears when I realized i was living a mirror (in some cases) life with hers. I thought I was the only one dealing with things like this...and I wasnt. Men will not get this book on the level that women do because they don't see "anything wrong" with a little porn. My husband read it, changed for a few months....and was right back at it within 3 months. This book is a true eye opener...if you are ready to face the truth.....
In a society where even within the church pornography is often thought of as simply a male weakness, but not really sin, this true story by Laurie Hall needs to be (but usually won¿t be) read by men. With shocking frankness, Laurie shares her pain in a no-holds-barred exposé of the lie that NO ONE GETS HURT. She draws the reader into the gut-wrenching horror of sitting in an AIDS clinic, being tested, because her husband has acted out the fantasies pornography has fed. Without being offensive or crude, Laurie portrays the progression from curious dabbling to hunger to addiction. It is a road a shocking number of Christians find themselves walking on. Laurie chronicles her personal battle to hold her family together, sharing the good and the bad of council she received. She shows the slow, painful road to recovery. Written in layman¿s language, this book will shock, disturb and challenge. It deserves a place in the reference library of professional Counselors and Pastors. But it also deserves a reading by every individual who has known sexual hunger and has been touched by the corrupted world we live in.
I can't believe this woman used scripture to justify standing by this poor excuse for protoplasm. She put her kids thru hell, which is what I have a problem with...now she wants to quote sources and scripture and try and make a buck now that he's dead? Prayer changes it all? No, not for her, not for any of us dealing with a spouse with SA.
If you are reading this review, get this book! It helped me realize I am not the only one facing this issue. It opened my eyes and forced me to take action, which ultimately saved my marriage! PTL! Read it, or give it to a friend who needs it.
