About "Finally Free: Fighting For Purity With the Power of Grace"
If you have struggled personally against the powerful draw of pornography, or if you have ever tried to help someone fighting this battle, you know how hard it is to break free. But real freedom isn't found by trying harder to change. Nor is it found in a particular method or program. Only Jesus Christ has the power to free people from the enslaving power of pornography. In Finally Free, Dr. Heath Lambert, a leader in the biblical counseling movement, lays out eight gospel-centered strategies for overcoming the deceitful lure of pornography. Each chapter clearly demonstrates how the gospel applies to this particular battle and how Jesus can move readers from a life of struggle to a life of purity. If you or someone you care about is fighting this battle, there is good news: No matter how intense or long-standing the struggle, Jesus Christ can, will, and does set people free from the power of pornography.

In this book, Lambert offers richly biblical, christ-centred and practical advice on dealing with pornography. Particularly helpful is his section on how to using accountability effectively and his breakdown of different types of radical measures that might need to be taken in the fight against pornography. However, I personally did not agree, on a theological level, that everyone has the ability to be 'free' from pornography or sexual sin. Regardless of this, whether you believe one can be 'free' from a certain sin or not, this book is still highly practical and relevant to anyone dealing with pornography. As the book itself highlights, this book is not only just for those who are struggling with pornography themselves, but can useful for a mentor, friend or family member, as they help someone through their struggle with pornography.
Lambert seeks to present a practical book to help people in the battle for purity. However, the primary enemy the book seeks to show how the gospel impacts is pornography. It is very practical throughout and includes many applications for both married and single people. Lambert is to be commended for not including unhelpful or tempting scenarios or examples or words (he states at the beginning this is one of his intentions). It can be very unhelpful for people fighting lust for the imagination to be unnecessarily stimulated while reading a resource which is supposed to be helping. The strength of the book is the focus on the impact of the gospel and grace of God in the fight against pornography. He emphasises the importance of turning away from these habits, but more importantly toward freedom through the empowering and forgiveness of God. Pornography is a genuine challenge for people, and this book would be an excellent resource to use, perhaps especially as a resource in the context of a mentoring relationship.
