Read an Excerpt


Pornography can afflict a couple’s relationship the way a malignant cancer ravages a body. The most devastating thing pornography does is come between a man and woman at the worst times and in the worst way. Right at those moments when a person is struggling and in need emotionally, pornography offers an alternative—a relationship counterfeit.
