The Way of Purity: Enjoy Lasting Freedom in Christ (Setting Captives Free) by Mike Cleveland. Mike Cleveland is a fantastic speaker and author with regards to strongholds and addictions.  I had the privilege to hear him speak at my church last year.  Mike founded the website Setting Captives Free and this book goes along with the study on Pornography addiction.

Porn Nation Student Edition: The Naked Truth by Michael Leahy.
This book is the true story of how the author lost his marriage and family to pornography addiction.  The truth is laid bare in this book which holds no punches and shows you how pornography destroys a life.  A MUST read

The Drug of the New Millennium – The Brain Science Behind Internet Pornography by Mark B. Kastleman. This amazing book shows you scientific proof how pornography alters the brain and directly impacts our attitudes and behaviors.  Did you also know that the chemicals  released while watching pornography is the same as those for a person doing drugs?  Get this book.

Pure Desire: Helping People Break Free from Sexual Struggles by Ted Roberts. I read this book right after I realized that I had a problem with pornography.  Ted had me nodding my head in agreement so much that I thought I was getting whiplash!  This book is so down to earth yet it deals directly with the problem and how you must change.

An Affair of the Mind by Laurie Hall. Focus on the Family recommended this book to my wife right after she learned of my problem.  I even read the book and agree it is a MUST read for any wife whose husband has a problem with pornography.  It helps the woman of the addict understand why her husband is addicted and how she can help him.

I Surrender All: Rebuilding a Marriage Broken by Pornography by Clay Crosse. Clay is a contemporary Christian musician who inexplicably lost his voice.  He was not sick, but after some probing by a voice coach he confessed his addiction to pornography.  This book documents his story and rebuilding of his marriage.  Good book.

I was shocked while looking these up on Amazon.  If you type in the keywords: Pornography addiction, you get 87 different books on the topic!

Mike Cleveland speaks on overcoming pornography addiction

Setting Captives Free Founder Mike Cleveland

Matthew 5:30  And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell.

Matthew 18:8  If your hand or your foot causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life maimed or crippled than to have two hands or two feet and be thrown into eternal fire.

Sin is tough to get rid of.  It is like cancer, if you don’t clean it all out it will spread.  Pornography addiction is tough to kick.  The best thing we can do is to amputate our source of sin.  I don’t mean mutilating yourself.  I mean you need to cancel your cable or internet, throw out your X rated movies and magazines and avoid those places you know will temp you back into pornography.

Pastor Mike Cleveland gave a great sermon entitled “Radical Freedom”.   Mike is the founder of setting captives free – a website that has free bible studes for all sorts of addictions.  You can watch the video of his sermon by clicking here and pushing the Video button on the page:  Pastor Mike Cleveland – “Radical Freedom”
