Summary

Bill Perkins taps into years of research, biblical study, and personal experience to provide a blueprint for sexual purity that has proven its efficacy in the lives of countless men. In When Good Men Are Tempted, he lays out that plan with transparency, humor, and simplicity. Perkins maintains that Christian men who fall sexually have suffered the worst kind of identity theft. Since that's the case, lasting victory rests on an understanding of their new and true identity in Christ, coupled with the insight needed to tap into the wisdom and power of God. Perkins unfolds a three-part plan that will help men think and live in accordance with their true identity. As that happens they'll resist sexual temptation. And every temptation resisted will vitalize their walk with God, buoy their self-respect, strengthen their marriage, and provide an example for their children and friends to follow. Updated to provide current resources to combat Internet pornography, When Good Men Are Tempted also features a chapter "For Wives Only," and "Take Action" steps and questions suitable for individual reflection or small group discussion.
