Finally Free : Fighting for Purity with the Power of Grace by Heath Lambert

Excerpt:

“This book is about something much better than pornography. This book is about the amazing power of Jesus Christ to free you from pornography. In this book, I want to share with you the amazing depth and effect of Christ’s power to eradicate pornography from your life. Whether you struggle with pornography yourself or are trying to help someone who struggles, I have good news for you: no matter how intense or long-standing the struggle, it is the work of Jesus Christ to set people free from such sin.

Review:

Everyone knows someone who is struggling with addiction to pornography. Most would like to help. Many do not know how. Those who are enslaved to their sin despair of ever finding a way out. Heath Lambert has written a book that seeks to break the chains of lust by means of a simple word: grace.

In this book, Dr. Lambert exposes the false belief that those enslaved to pornography often assume: I can overcome this by trying harder. Dr. Lambert shows us that it is by God’s grace that we can be freed from pornography and points us to eight specific ways that God’s grace is manifest in our lives to help us overcome this sin. The appendix consists of help for those whose loved one is struggling with pornography.

Although this book specifically targets pornography, I believe it could be adapted to counsel those who struggle with any besetting sin. I found this book to be thoroughly biblical in its approach and practical in its application. Dr. Lambert tackles each chapter with a pastor’s care and a doctor’s precision. As I read this book, I found my heart moved by the grace that God has given us not only to be saved from the eternal penalty of sin but also the grace He has given us to subdue sin in our mortal bodies as we grow in holiness.

This book needs to be in the library of every pastor. I will recommend this book first and without any hesitation to those who ask. I cannot always say that with books on this topic. Some books focus too much on the sin and end up ensnaring some in renewed temptation. This book seeks to take the focus off of the sin and points the reader to the Saviour. Thank you Dr. Lambert and Zondervan for producing such a valuable resource for those who hurt and for those who want to help. May God be glorified for years to come by this book.
