I wanted to say how much I enjoyed your book.
So far 4 of us kiwis have read the book and it has been a real blessing to us. You know a book is great/challenging when people, HAVE to put it down for a few days (one person about a week!) because it brings up so much stuff. Every person I have talked to about the book, have really gotten a lot out of it (not always enjoyable – but that too is a great thing!) I’ve given the first two copies you sent me as a gift to guys that are in a support group I am involved in. I’ve been challenging …
I just finished reading The Road to Grace; it’s a powerful book. I’ve read many books on the topic of sexual addiction but I’d have to say that this book has the most realistic approach… religion isn’t the answer as is mentioned on Page 193: “When religion has said it’s last word, there is little that we need other than God Himself. The evil habit of seeking God and (anything else) effectively prevents us from finding God in full revelation.”
Your book was amazing to say the least. I’ve read several sex addiction books and yours is the best. Your suffering and God’s Grace has made this book powerful. It covers EVERY aspect of sexual addiction from steps to recovery to mending the marriage. It spoke volumes. Your book is a mighty weapon and will save MANY MANY marriages.
One of our translators was really blessed by your book. It enabled her to look into her past and receive healing … she wanted you to know that it was a blessing for her.
I have been running a group for wives of husbands struggling with sexual addiction (it is also my story) and I know that your book will provide them information as they journey through their own healing. Many books on sexual addiction describe and provide examples of all degrees of sexual brokenness (i.e. prostitutes, anonymous encounters etc. ) and I find that the women who “only” deal with pornography are quick to minimize their own pain and the subsequent consequences. They seem to settle…
Also, I had NO idea about Manasseh. It blew me away. I loved that you used different stories at times than the same ones we’ve heard in church our whole lives. You really did a superb job on this book and I know God is going to bless you abundantly and reward you with more of Him!
I’ve read your book and it has helped me tremendously. I’m so grateful for your transparency and your willingness to allow the Lord to use you in order to remove this cancer from the Body of Christ.
Today a man who purchased your book from us wrote me and said that your book had helped him to leave porn behind … he is free now and enjoys freedom.
I am on my second reading of The Road to Grace, this time reading more slowly. Mike’s observations and presentation of scripture, along with the account of his own experience, give me great hope, and shows me a direction that I can believe, and that I crave, from someone who’s “been there”, where I am now. It’s nice to crave something besides one more session of porn. His approach is “no holds barred”, but compassionate, since he has been in the pits that I’m trying to crawl out …
