I believe God will use the principles in this book to not only bring people freedom with sexual addiction, but with other areas of sin as well. As I’ve been tempted to run to other vices this week, God’s been continually taking me to the throne room to connect with Him and cry out, “Create in me a clean heart, oh, God!” Thanks for being sensitive to His leading in writing this as His vessel! I’m still reading, but have already been so blessed!
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 …
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.
In the book it’s also said that “A Christian sex addict is someone who seeks to taste and know the love of God deep in the core of their heart while taking a bath in the sewer of lust.” That was a powerful statement that most people wouldn’t understand unless they’d struggled with this addiction.
This book is a must for counselors and those affected by this subject.
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.
Your book has done a great work of healing in my husband’s life. We read it together. Each chapter he faces more of his past and heals those wounds. God bless you for your willingness to expose your life to everyone.
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!
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.”
