Dave does a great job helping men see that they are not the only ones who struggle with keeping their minds and lives pure and that they are not alone in the battle. Through telling parts of his own story, Dave helps men understand that there is help and healing to be found in Jesus but also gives them ways to start moving themselves toward purity by giving them practical steps to take in each devotion. Dave then ends each one with challenging questions focused both to married and single men and points the reader into Gods word each day. Live Pure and Free definitely lives up to it's sub-title, because it definitely can be a game and a life changer for the man who reads it daily and applies to their lives the wisdom and steps Dave challenges them with.

This is a very good devotional that is geared toward people with a problem with pornography but the day to day devotions can be helpful for any type of addiction. I really enjoyed the prayers throughout. I received a copy of this book from Celebratelit for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.

Since this book was an open and honest devotional for men's sexual purity, I gave this to my husband who agreed that this devotional was appropriate for any man of any age whether single or married. He especially liked how the daily devotionals were short and to the point and really cut to the heart of the issue quickly. He also enjoyed the practical application and discussion questions for everyday circumstances any man can find himself in. He really recommended it for a group of men who want to work on their purity, and an accountability partner to hold them to it each week which is something highly stressed in the book as well. He appreciated the game plan to make sure you have a plan for how to respond when faced with temptation rather than being caught off guard. Overall, he was happy with the way it was set up in short sections, was appropriate to do in a group, had immediate practical application, and truly did give a winning game plan to stay on top of sexual purity. Most of all, he liked that it was Bible focused from start to finish and it was raw and honest. Hope is out there for any man no matter where he is in his journey to sexual purity through the Lord! My husband recommends this for any man at any stage of life. I received a complimentary copy of this book, and all opinions given are my own.

Some books are difficult to read because they talk about things that are uncomfortable. This may be one of those books for some, but I will say that it is powerful, transparent and life changing. Men have this need to feel like they have everything together. They hide things that they know are wrong, for fear of being judged. What the real problem is though, is called pride. Lets face it, we all sin, we all fall short, but if we don't confess our sins, we will continue to allow the enemy to draw us away from God. This book is geared towards men and the temptations they face. I respect the author for his candor and sharing his struggles. The book is designed as a 90 day devotional . Each day the author touches on a different subject and has a prayer at the end of the chapter as well as questions to be answered as you go through the study. Some of the questions are very specific and I encourage you to be honest as you do the exercises . It was interesting to read about one man who went to a purity class at a different church from where he attended. I felt compassion as it was explained that he was afraid of what his own church would think if they knew what he was struggling with. When will we as the body of Christ stop judging and help each other out? We need to stop pointing fingers, and help those who need support. One of the best points the author makes is finding an accountability partner. It is so important to have someone stand with you, encourage you and pray for you. We aren't meant to be alone in out struggles. The book is well written and is meant to encourage men and help them as they overcome their struggles with things that are not of God. "There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus." Romans 8:1 I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion.

Technology today has presented males of all ages a problem of easy escape and fantasy fulfillment that has trapped and enslaved more than half of us. It's unfair. It's a trick. And it's taking the heart out of many men for the shame of a power they realize they're too broken to escape. It's using our God-given nature against us. Dave Howe's new book, Live Pure and Free, is one man's honest presentation of a path out of that jungle. Buy it for yourself and start your own 90 day challenge to seek real change and new life. Buy one for your son, for your friends, for your pastor. Start a men's group where men may safety gage and test themselves with accountability to live in the light and finally defeat this. Dave has been very honest and transparent, and we identify with both his struggle and the passion he has for positive change. This nation's current lack of leadership comes out of failed men, weakened men too ashamed to step up and be heroes. I recommend Live Pure and Free to any man longing to see himself in the mirror and know he has the strength, by grace and the help of others, to be 100% what he was created to be.

In an age that is dominated by digital technology, pornography is one of the greatest besetting sins among today's generation of Christian men (single or married). So many feel trapped, wanting to break free, yet fearing the repercussions that could result from being found out. Dave Howe's "Live Pure and Free: The 90-Day Game Changer" is unique as it provides a safe avenue for men to come out of isolation. The tone of the book is Biblical, humble, down-to-earth, transparent, encouraging, edifying, non-explicit, and non-condemning. Maintaining this balance is extremely difficult when it comes to the topic of purity, but "Live Pure and Free" successfully encapsulates "speaking the truth in love" (Eph. 4:15) and "giving grace to those who hear" (Eph. 4:29). This book's easy-to-read and simple format makes this resource conducive to readers of all sorts (individual readers, small groups, accountability partners, mentors, etc.). The book is meant to be read over 90 days. Each day is only two pages long and consists of a Bible verse, a short life-lesson from the author about his journey out of addiction, a prayer, and a call to action with a little homework. Both single and married men who are struggling with pornography will want to get their hands on a copy of "Live Pure and Free" to start their journey toward living a truly fulfilling life. Michael J.
