The Best Book on Sexual Purity

freeThis is by far the single most helpful book on sexual purity for men that I’m aware of:

Heath Lambert. Finally Free: Fighting for Purity with the Power of Grace. Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 2013. 176 pp. 23-page sample PDF.

It’s clear, direct, practical, and grace-giving.

I highly recommended this for men who are fighting lust or wallowing in it. I pray that God will use this book to help thousands of men be “finally free.”


The top three resources I know of on how to fight sexual sin are …

  1. Heath Lambert’s book
  2. John Piper’s chapter (see below)
  3. Joe Rigney’s MP3s (see below)

Be sure to read Piper’s chapter together with Lambert’s book. They have some different strengths that complement each other.
