It is realistic, practical, and hope-giving." -John Piper, pastor of Bethlehem Baptist Church, Minneapolis "A beautiful blend of grace and truth. Joshua Harris raises high standards of holiness while carefully avoiding legalism. I highly recommend it." -Randy Alcorn , bestselling author of The Treasure Principleand The Purity Principle "I am very encouraged that my longtime friend Josh Harris has written a book about lust. May God use this book to keep many from allowing their minds to become 'the devil's playground.'" -Rebecca St. James, singer/songwriter Story Behind the Book "I was preparing a message on lust when I realized that the book I wanted to consult hadn't been written. That book would make it clear that only Jesus Christ can free us from the hopeless treadmill of shame and guilt that so many well-intentioned people end up on. It would instill a love for holiness and a hatred for sin without dragging the reader's imagination through the gutter. And it would be for both men and women, because I've learned that lust isn't just a guy problemit' s a human problem." Joshua Harris
