Publishers Description
Lust isn't just a guy problem - it's a human problem. And unless we honestly confront it, lust will destroy our relationships and our lives. Joshua Harris, author of the runaway bestseller "I Kissed Dating Goodbye, "calls a generation bombarded with images of sexual sin back to the freedom and joy of holiness. This "PG-rated" book - straightforward without being graphic - speaks to those entrenched in lust or just flirting with temptation.

Praise for "Sex Is Not the Problem (Lust Is)
"
"For your joy and Christ's honor, I commend this book to you. 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 Principle and 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.'"

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 problem-it' s a human problem."
"-Joshua Harris"

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Not even an Hint  Nov 18, 2008
Awesome book that addresses my struggles and how to deal with it.
Highly recommended to both single and married couple.
Loved it
 
Only One of Its Kind  Nov 17, 2008
While there are many books available on sexual sin and purity, I haven't read a book specifically on lust until now. In this easy-to-read title, Josh Harris offers Biblically-based, culturally-relevant advice for this sin of the heart and mind. Rather than seeming holier-than-thou or clinical, the author makes himself very vulnerable, accepting and encouraging readers who may be struggling. I recommend this book highly without reservation -- it's the only one of its kind of which I am aware.
 
another great book by josh harris  Feb 8, 2008
Well if you want a straight up book..here it is. NO questions asked. This book lays it out there for ya. This book is so important to read... our world is so caught up in the lies about sex. But the truth is always going to be the truth even if no one else believes it... Sex outside of marriage is going to hurt! whether you admit it or not. This book gets specific on how to keep pure, what you need to be doing, what's going on in the opposite sexs' mind and how you can help that. If your struggling with bad habits that your ashamed to admit and know you need help.. here it is. Harris helps us understand why wait, and gets specific on how we need get rid of the lust in our lives.. it will ruin you if you don't do whats right!
 
Not sure what to believe  Feb 7, 2008
I'm not really sure what to think about this book. Joshua Harris is not a doctor, and Christians reading this book should not take this book as the absolute bottom line manual on lust. Yes, I believe there is a big problem today toward lust and sex outside of marriage. I am a 33-year old Christian male still waiting for a marriage partner before engaging in a sexual relationship. So Josh, what am I supposed to do buddy? It's easy for him to tell me not to lust for women when he is a married man. His advice is to get married. I'm trying Josh, but not having a whole lot of luck right now. So what am I to do, not have even a hint of lust in me because it's sinful? Don't masterbate? How do I deal with lust in a healthy manner? The thing that scares me about this book is that it seemingly takes the human factor outside of sexuality. Humans are animals, it's just a manner of how we deal with our sex drives. Some of the stories that Harris goes into in this book are funny, almost silly. For instance, he tells of going to rent a video with a friend of his who is too ashamed of even going into the video store with him because he feels he can't control himself enough to not lust after the pretty ladies on the covers of the videos. Harris has to resort to bringing a video title to the window for his friend to approve of. I guess his friend had to give him a thumbs up or a thumbs down on the title. Give me a break! His buddy must be pretty weak-minded! I guess his friend should just stay home in bed with his teddy bear and the covers pulled up over his head! God forbid he venture outside of the house, he might see an attractive young lady in a mini skirt on a summer day and "lust" after her. He also tells of being at a preachers house to watch the Super Bowl. The preacher flips the channel to CSPAN during the commercials so that the other guys watching the game don't see the racy commercials with the ladies in them and "lust" after them. How weak-minded can you be? I would much rather masterbate and deal with my lust in that manner that have it build up to unhealthy levels that lead me to sin sexually, but that's just me. I am hopeful that God will lead me to a marriage partner and baby hopefully before I turn 40, but what if he doesn't? Am I supposed to never lust sexually for a woman and deny that I am human being as well as a Christian? Yes, I am a Christian, but am I not supposed to have animalistic instincts toward sex as well? I'm not sure I can recommend this book. I checked this book out from my church's library, so at least I didn't buy it. Maybe it can be beneficial to some people, but I wouldn't take everything in it that Harris says as the final word. I would talk to my doctor or see a professional counselor before taking a lot of Harris' advise. Just my opinion.
 
Greater glory and pleasure in God  Dec 13, 2007
Another great book by Josh Harris. We battle lust by keeping our eyes on the greater glory and pleasure God offers us through purity in our single and married lives.

I like how he addresses the way in which men and women struggle differently with lust. That difference is the result of a twisting of the differences God built into us. God made men and women to complement and provide companionship for each other through our differences. Harris points out that remembering this good thing will help us put sin in its place.
