Book Review When Your Husband Is Addicted To Pornography Healing Your Wounded Heart

by | Oct 22, 2012 | Christian Living

Pornography is an insidious cancer that is spread quickly throughout the world devastating men, women, children and destroying marriages, cities, nations and civilization. Thankfully the Lord is raising up many voices to speak out against the evils of pornography in order to expose the darkness and show people the truth light in Jesus Christ. While most of these books have been written for men who struggle with women none that I’ve read in the past five years help women who are the victims of those men who are addicted to pornography. Thankfully that need has been remedied by Vicki Tiede in When Your Husband Is Addicted To Pornography Healing Your Wounded Heart.

When I first saw that this book was coming out from New Growth Press earlier this year, I resolved that I wasn’t going to read it. I reasoned that it would be awkward of me a man to read a book directed at women and written by a woman. Thankfully the better part of me won the day, and when asked by the publisher if I would join the blog tour for this book, I decided yes. As I read this book and processed what it was teaching, I was thankful to God I overcame any awkwardness I felt, and not only read the book but enjoyed the book.

There’s a lot to appreciate about in When Your Husband Is Addicted To Pornography: First, the honesty and transparency of Vicki is to be commended. Vicki tells her story in such a way that it’s not her story that is put on a pedestal but the grace of God that has ministered to her and now through her in this book. Second, Vicki pulls no punches and calls it how she sees it (in a speaking the truth in love in order to help women kind of way). Third, this book is grace saturated from beginning to end. Finally, this book is application oriented. Throughout the book Vicki asks women to participate with and interact with the content of the book. Given the type of book that this is, I think she does this very well, and I think this book could easily be not only a book but also a workbook to help women work through this difficult issue.

When Your Husband Is Addicted to Pornography is a powerful book that will help women to understand that they are not along in their struggles that they have a King in Jesus who promises to never leave them nor forsake them. As a man who read this book I was given insight into how a woman views the issue of pornography from a first hand experience. Honestly whether you’re a man or a woman, this book will help you. This book will help women with husbands who have struggled with pornography to find healing in Jesus. This book will help men who struggle with pornography to understand the issue from the perspective of what their wives are going through. This book will help Pastors to minister to families hurt by pornography. Wherever you are in life and whatever you have gone through Jesus still longs to heal and minister to the broken hearted. In this book that is sensitive, biblical and provocative, Vicki comes alongside of hurting women as a friend, and guides them to their Redeemer who alone can heal and minister. I recommend this book as it will be a source of comfort, strength, and hope.
