Everyone needs and longs for true intimacy, but many run from it because of hurt and disappointment they've encountered in close relationships. Instead, they seek to control and fill their relational void through pseudo connections. Dr. Schaumburg goes beyond behavioral symptoms and willpower-based solutions to provide Biblical guideposts on the journey to restoration.

From the Back Cover:

WHY ARE SEXUAL TEMPTATIONS SO HARD TO RESIST WHEN THE PRICE IS SO HIGH? We all long for true intimacy. Many people seek to fill that void by seeking sexual relationships-whether real or fantasized-that promise to provide the relief, acceptance, and fulfillment for which they long. But it is false intimacy. And as Dr. Harry Schaumburg points out, “Sexual intimacy can’t relieve their deep, unmet longings.” False Intimacy goes beyond behavioral symptoms and willpower-based solutions to provide biblical guideposts for the journey to restoration. With frank honesty, False Intimacy examines the roots behind these kinds of behaviors and offers realistic direction to those whose lives or ministries have been impacted by sexual addiction.
