Archives For sexual purity
For years, I’ve made a personal policy to not watch any TV shows or movies that contain graphic sex or nudity. Because of this choice to be pure in my thought life, I have missed out on some good shows! Has it been worth it? Of course it has. But wouldn’t it be nice to eat fresh donuts that have the nutrition contents of fresh broccoli? Well now, that is possible! No, not the donuts unfortunately, but follow the concept.

This is the landing page for my upcoming book Beyond the Battle: A man’s guide to his identity in Christ in an oversexualized world. The book will be available in December 2017, exact date TBD. Books will sell on Amazon for $14.99 each or you can purchase in bulk from this page you are currently on (atacrossroads.net/beyond-the-battle). The bulk prices will be 10 books for $100 ($10/each) or 30 books for $225 ($7.50 each) (shipping price will be added, or you can pick up from Lansing, MI). The book will have its greatest impact when men read it along with other men.
I’ll post updates on details here as they unfold. You can also subscribe to my Author Newsletter (below) to get details emailed to your inbox along with ways you can help with the book launch and forthcoming details on Beyond the Battle‘s parallel book for women, More than a Princess.
I’d also love to come and speak at your church or special event (no fee), please contact me to make those arrangements.
Back cover text:
What if the battle you’re fighting has already been won?
As men fight for contentment in their marriages or their singleness, our oversexualized world continues to pump out false promises. What if the answer to your heart’s longing is not to try harder or fight more intensely? What if there’s actually more to the battle than accountability, online filters, and training away the symptoms of the problem (as important as those tools are)?
The good news is that there really is more to this battle, and victory depends not on your ability to fight, but on your ability to rest. It’s not about working hard to avoid lust, it’s about God working in you to remove (and replace) your desire for it.
Beyond the Battle dives below the surface to uncover soul-deep solutions. You will discover that everything you hoped the next woman would give you is already freely yours in Jesus. This identity in Christ will satisfy you to the core, allowing you to see yourself and women the way God intended all along.
