When Good Men Are Tempted (Bill Perkins) Review

The good folks over at the Porn to Purity Blog were so very kind enough to send me a free copy of Bill Perkins book, When Good Men Are Tempted.

The book is light reading though dealing with the heavy subject of human sexuality, and as the title suggests the book focuses on men and sexual temptation. I was overwhelmingly pleased that Perkins chose not to adopt a fear-based approach (“it’s all fun and games til somebody gets a disease”), but views sex positively though with appropriate boundaries.

Perkins writes from a very down-to-earth, transparent perspective bolstered by experience, which adds to the numerous practical suggestions he has for dealing with this delicate issue. To that end he takes an unvarnished look at real-life sexuality, not shying away from some very significant (and controversial) issues.

The book is, again, light reading, though men within the church and without will undoubtedly find it immensely helpful. A good book for pastors to keep on the shelf to loan out when this issue invariably arises.
