(Tim: Nathan Alberson writes) Dear Dad or Mom:
Your average teenage boy already knows about the birds and bees. But how on earth are you going to talk your darling child through all the issues that come along with it: from lust to porn... Wouldn't it be nice if there was some sort of book about sex written for young men...
Well actually, there is. The book is Man Vs. Lust
, and in just 73 pages David Canfield tells it straight and biblical. What's God's purpose for sex? Why is purity important? Why is pornography bad and how does your son fight it? What kind of girl should he marry and how should he treat her? What if he thinks he's gay?Man Vs. Lust
has the answers to all these questions and more.
Buy it for your sons, buy it for your grandsons, buy it for your nephews! Buy it for the young men in your church! In your classical Christian school! In your foster group home! We want to transform young men everywhere into God-glorifying warriors for biblical sexuality. We want pornography eradicated from the universe. We want an entire generation committed to the purity and sanctity of Christian marriage.
That's not too much too ask from 73 pages, right?

Because of the pervasive immorality of our culture, many young Christian men wish they had a godly Dutch uncle who would take them aside and tell it to them straight. Well, they do have one and he wrote a short, little book for them—this one. David Canfield has good sense and good humor in equal measure, and I trust that many young men will find this book very helpful.

Honest, practical, insightful, powerful, and most of all biblical, this brief book is strong medicine for a dying world. I pray it will bless thousands of men, and thousands of marriages. It has already blessed me, and I pray it will bless you.
