Addictions dot the landscape of our homes, families, businesses, schools, and churches today. Everyday people battle enslavement to everything from alcohol to drugs, food to work, success to sex. In his new book, “Finally Free; Fighting for Purity with the Power of Grace”, author Heath Lambert deals head-on with an addiction that is destroying the moral fabric of America today; pornography. This book is not about pornography, per se. This is not a book that will tell how many are involved in the industry. This is not a book that will reveal how many billions of dollars the porn industry generates every year. This book will not tell you anything about the avenues by which individuals view pornography every day. The purpose of this book, in Lambert’s own words, “is about something much better than pornography. This book is about the amazing power of Jesus Christ to free you from pornography. In this book, I want to share with you the amazing depth and affect of Christ’s power to eradicate pornography from your life”.
In Finally Free, Lambert lays out a series of practical steps for those who are struggling with pornography. His book contains nine chapters in which he lays out eight methods meant to help a person battling pornography. Lambert begins with the pivotal aspect of this battle; God’s grace. He speaks of the forgiving and transforming graces of God that make freedom possible. His forgiving grace forgives the individual of partaking in pornography and His transforming grace takes away the desire to view by filling the individual with more of Christ Himself. Lambert speaks of eight methods of battle. He writes of using sorrow, accountability, confession, humility, gratitude, and several others to fight off the desires to engage in pornography. It is not a matter of “check all boxes and be free”; rather, his book leaves the reader with practical means of applying God’s grace to their life. His theology is so solid that the eight methods could be applied against any addiction with positive results.
Of all the books that have been written recently in the “resist pornography” arena, Finally Free is head and shoulders above the rest. His book is practical, humble, loving and balances scripture, personal stories, and humor perfectly. This book will help those struggling with pornography, as well as those who are walking along side someone in the battle. Smart. Powerful. This will be one of those books that will remain at the front of the pornography addiction conversation for years to come. I highly recommend.
