Wired for Intimacy by William M. Struthers
In this book neuroscientist and researcher William Struthers explains how pornography affects the male brain and what we can do about it. Because we are embodied beings, viewing pornography changes how the brain works, how we form memories and make attachments. By better understanding the biological realities of our sexual development, we can cultivate healthier sexual perspectives and interpersonal relationships. Struthers exposes false assumptions and casts a vision for a redeemed masculinity, showing how our sexual longings can actually propel us toward sanctification and holiness in our bodies.
Healing the Wounds of Sexual Addiction by Dr. Mark R. Laaser
With today’s rampant availability of Internet pornography, sexual addiction has become a national epidemic that affects up to 10 percent of Christians. As devastating as any drug habit, it brings heartbreak and despair to those it entangles. But there is help for men and women caught in sexual addiction’s downward spiral.
This book offers a path that leads beyond compulsive thoughts and behaviors to healing and transformation. Sensitive to the shame of sexual addiction without minimizing its sinfulness, Dr. Mark Laaser traces the roots of the problem, discusses its patterns and impact, and maps out a biblical approach to self-control and sexual integrity.
Previously titled Faithful and True, this revision includes an all-new section that deals with sexual addiction in the church. Other important changes reflect cultural trends, incorporate current research, and place a greater emphasis on spiritual growth. This book also addresses the unique needs and issues of female sex addicts.
Whether you know someone with a sexual addiction or struggle yourself, Healing the Wounds of Sexual Addiction points the way to understanding, wholeness, and holiness.

Strength in Weakness by Andrew Comiskey
Help and hope for men . . .
undermined by silent fathers
harassed by pornography and sexual temptation
afraid of failing those they love most
angered by past relationships with women
Help and hope for women . . .
lost in their relationships with others
betrayed by fathers, husbands or male leaders
wounded by sexual assault
paralyzed by self-hatred
Andrew Comiskey sees our weakness as “a threshold for holy power”–the point at which God can meet us for healing and equip us for service. He has seen it happen again and again. During many years of ministry, Comiskey, his wife, Annette, and their fellow “strugglers” have accompanied hundreds of wounded men and women to transformation at the cross of Christ. Telling real-life stories of despair, hope and lasting change, Comiskey lays out the foundations for healing from relational and sexual sin. With chapters focusing on particular areas of vulnerability for men and women, on the battle over homosexuality in church and culture, and on the essential role of the church in ongoing healing, Strength in Weakness makes clear the way to the cross–God’s sufficient answer to our deepest needs.

Addiction & Grace by Gerald G. May, M.D.
Drawing on his experience as a psychiatrist working with the chemically dependent, Dr. May believes that addiction represents an attempt to assert complete control over our lives. As he discovered through his own experience, that attempt is necessarily doomed. It is only with God’s help, by surrendering to grace, and the understanding that comes through prayer and spiritual warfare that we cn come to terms with ourselves and attain harmony with the world.
