"Every Single Man's Battle" is a book in the series of books by Fred Stoeker to look at the Godly view of how a single Christian man should view sexuality. He uses different views as how a single man should abstain from sex and sexual thoughts as how the Bible says we should until marriage. Although I am not single this book points out not only what single men face but all men face with sexual impurity, from looking at women to just thinking about women lustfully. I found that this book is really a great read and could be used in any bible study class for men, single to married. I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone. This book has really enlightened me and made me think about what I really need to work on, even though I am married.
Most men struggle with purity. Whether it be manifested through thoughts or actions, lust is a powerful temptation that destroys and dominates many lives. In fact, modern society is currently being overtaken by a whirlwind of immoral media of all sorts. Pornography is widely available; just one click away on the Internet. Women dress in the most immodest clothing imaginable. What are single Christian men to do in such a dirty world? Being the authors of the ever-popular Every Man series, Steve Arterburn and Fred Stoeker, along with Mike Yorkey, have come up with a discussion guide to be used as a companion to their popular titles Every Man's Battle and Every Young Man's Battle. While Every Single Man's Battle draws its excerpts from Every Man's Battle, both books are useful while you go through this guide. It is written especially for those unmarried, divorced, or widowed men who want to seek out guidelines for celibacy and purity. As such, this book gives practical tips on overcoming lust, pornography, and masturbation, as well as staying away from unhealthy relationships and staying celibate. I have personally found each of the aforementioned three titles useful in my war against immorality. This guide opened my eyes to key truths in the word that I can practically apply into my life and live out in purity. A must read for sure. I received a free copy of this book from WaterBrook Multnomah's Blogging for Books program in exchange for my honest review.
Every Single Man's Battle is a book designed to go along with "Every Man's Battle" and is specifically designed and targeted for single men. This book is very upfront and honest about the seriousness of sexual purity and the destruction that comes when the battle for sexual purity is not fought. This book can be used for personal use, but it is encouraged that you do it with a group and comes with great questions after each section for reflection and discussion. Overall it was a great book to read and I hope that it will allow men to see that they have the power to win the fight against sexual temptation. I received this book free from the publisher and am not required to write a positive review, but to write of my honest opinion of the book.
Okay, this book, I should start by saying, was a a workbook for becoming, and hopefully maintaining, sexual purity. I read this book without any intention of becoming sexually pure, so I feel as though it may not have been as successful as one would have hoped it to be. That being said, I do meet many of the requirements for a sexually pure christian. I should also note, after reading this book, I am unsure if I should even be considered a christian. The quality of the read wasn't all that bad. It's certainly easy enough to follow, but since it's a christian themed book there are some things I feel it is missing. Of course, Bible verses helped back up some of the stories and other passages throughout. Things like having a girlfriend or fiancee, to the book, count as still being single. And neither of these are brought up until the last chapter. This seems a bit odd, because I found myself wondering quite a bit about when it would address what it would be like to have a girlfriend and stay sexually pure in the eyes of the Lord. I don't know. I still feel as though the book was a bit biased. It never covered anything about Gay marriage or Gay couples as I imagined it wouldn't. It also makes men out to be lustful pigs. Hmm, this really isn't true. I suppose I shouldn't say pigs, since they never actually call men that specifically, but it certainly feels this way. What it does say, however, is that our maleness sets us up to falling into Satan's trap and uncontrollably lusting after women, when what we should strive for is sexual purity, seemingly only brought about through Loving God. I mean, this is there point, so why wouldn't they state that? I guess I am a bit biased too. In fact, I probably have to be to not be fully agreeing with this book, but it just seems like all it hopes to accomplish is how to have a relationship that God is okay with. Through this, you should have blessings. That's great and all, but do I need blessings. Probably. There are some final things about this book. Firstly, it has some quotes in the beginning that make men seem super stupid. Like, "God couldn't possibly have meant what He said about sexual purity in the Bible, could He? Why would He create us to be sexual beings and then ask us to act asexual? It seems so unfair!" And this, "I always though that since I was a man I would not be able to control my roving eyes. I didn't know it could be any other way." Come on, really? It makes the christian male population seem like all they want is sex, whilst still being called christian (This point is later addressed, but is only touched on). Secondly, I should really mention that though this book is for personal use, it is perhaps more intended for a group. I would concede it should be read by those who truly do seek to become sexually pure, as it would probably be a good tool, but make sure you have the supplemental Every Man's Battle as well. They go together. If you are going to read this, to become pure, then I also recommend reading it in the time track it suggests with other men, instead of in a few days and alone, like me.
