ABOUT THIS BOOK
In this world you’re surrounded by sexual images that open the door to temptation. They’re everywhere–on TV, billboards, magazines, music, the internet–and so easy to access that it sometimes feels impossible to escape their clutches. Yet God expects his children to be sexually pure. So how can you survive the relentless battle against temptation? Here’s powerful ammunition.
Steve Arterburn and Fred Stoeker, the authors of the hard-hitting best-seller Every Man’s Battle, now focus on the temptations young single Christian men like you face every day–and they offer workable, biblical strategies for achieving sexual purity.
The authors examine the standard of Ephesians 5:3–“there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality”–in a positive and sensitive light. And they explain how an authentic, vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ is the key to victory over temptation. Every Young Man’s Battle will show you how to train your eyes and your mind, how to clean up your thought life, and how to develop a realistic battle plan for remaining pure in today’s sexually soaked culture. As a result, you’ll experience hope–real hope–for living a strong, pure life God’s way.

PRAISE FOR THIS BOOK
"Every Young Man's Battle does the best job I have ever seen on the subject of sexual temptation. Once upon a time we lived in a world that didn't talk about secrets, and it has brought us to the mess we are in today. Young men must have an honest, blunt, and unashamedly Christian look at their sexuality. This book will save thousands of future marriages." Jim Burns, President, YouthBuilders
"I have never read a book as direct and open as Every Young Man's Battle. The profound principles communicate the author's personal experiences and provide the hope that anyone can overcome a day-to-day battle with impure thoughts. Every Young Man's Battle helps you to see the importance of taking control over your eyes, mind, and heart so you can completely honor God in every facet of your life." Scott Bullard, of muscial recording group, Soul Focus
"It's encouraging to see some real men stand up and sound the alarm to young men. Stephen, Fred and Mike's courage to tell their stories, exposing what has unfortunately become a dirty little secret among men in the church. The battle cry of the day is for men of all ages to live a pure and holy life and this book will crush Satan's strategy by giving the troops the guts to talk about what has been taboo in the church for so long. The author's poignant stories paint a picture of battle in which all men can relate, but offers hope and camaraderie to win the war." Troy VanLiere, Artist/Manager (representing NewSong, Carolyn Arends, Soul Focus, Jadyn Strand and Glad)
"There has been a gaping void in the search for holiness, and Every Young Man's Battle addresses those issues where others have been comfortably silent. If there is even a spark of desire for purity in your life, this book will kindle that fire…it IS possible to walk in victory, as you will surely find out after reading the 'Every Man' series." Matt Butler, of musical recording group, NewSong
