Description
 
In a world where there are 68 million searches for pornography every day and where over 70 percent of Christian men report viewing porn in the last year, it’s no surprise that more and more men struggle with an addiction to this false fantasy. Common wisdom says if they just had more willpower or more faith, their fight would be over. Is the answer really that simple?

According to counselor and ministry leader Michael John Cusick, the answer is no – but the truth may be much more freeing. Backed by Scripture, Cusick uses examples from his own life and from his twenty years of counseling experience to show us how the pursuit of empty pleasure is really a search for our heart’s deepest desire – and the real key to resistance is discovering and embracing the joy we truly want.

Cusick’s insights help readers understand ow porn struggles begin, what to do to prevent them, and most importantly, how to overcome the compulsion once it begins. In the end, this powerful book shows us all how the barrier built by porn addiction can become a bridge to abundant life.

Surfing for God is a miraculous book. Cusick explains the addict’s situation clearly, placing it within its proper biblical context and summarizing the latest scientific research. He shows us that the dilemma is a spiritual one, rooted n our own disowned longings, especially our longing for God. He then delivers priceless practical direction. Any Christian concerned about the destructive effects of pornography on the contemporary church should read this book.

Michael Cusick simply will not let men settle for petty attempts to resolve their war with sexual struggles. He challenges men to explore their hearts and discover a profound passion that can never be satisfied with the emptiness of pornography. He leads us through his personal journey and invites us to connect our deepest desires to the hope of all desire – God.
