In a world where there are 68 million searches for pornography every day and where over 70 percent of Christian men report viewing porn in the last year, it’s no surprise that more and more men struggle with an addiction to this false fantasy. Common wisdom says if they just had more willpower or more faith, their fight would be over. Is the answer really that simple? According to counselor and ministry leader Michael John Cusick, the answer is no ― but the truth may be much more freeing. Backed by Scripture, Cusick uses examples from his own life and from his twenty years of counseling experience to show us how the pursuit of empty pleasure is really a search for our heart’s deepest desire ― and the real key to resistance is discovering and embracing the joy we truly want. Cusick’s insights help readers understand how porn struggles begin, what to do to prevent them, and most importantly, how to overcome the compulsion once it begins. In the end, this powerful book shows us all how the barrier built by porn addiction can become a bridge to abundant life.

Review:

"This is a dangerous and beautiful book, filled with courage, filled with hope. This book will set you free. The process Michael describes here works--I've seen it happen with many menThat's why you should read this book. Then give it to every man you know."
--John Eldredge, Author of Wild at Heart and Beautiful Outlaw

"Surfing for God is a profoundly necessary book for men. Not only does Cusick connect our sexual struggles and desires to our spirituality, he demonstrates through his own redemptive journey how to embrace the brokenness we carry, and live out of that place. This is where a true and centered life is found. I'm thrilled that this book is available for those haunted by sexual struggle, and have found it deeply encouraging in my own story."

--Charlie Lowell, Jars of Clay

"All of us have addictions--some to success and approval, others to pornography and other vices. Surfing for God
 is a truly helpful resource for those struggling with painful and destructive addictions to pornography and sexual sin. The forthrightness of the author--one who is on his own healing journey--will be a blessing and a guide for all who struggle to take the journey from this particular bondage to the freedom that comes in embracing that which is life indeed."
--Ruth Haley Barton, Founder, Transforming Center
Author of Invitation to Solitude and Silence and Sacred Rhythms
