A wake-up call for men and women:
The adult entertainment industry brings in more money each year than the NFL, NBA, and Major League Baseball combined.
An estimated 70 percent of American men aged 18—34 view Internet pornography at least once a month.
The average porn viewer is 41 years old and earns an annual income of $60,000.
Approximately 25 percent of porn viewers are women; 46 percent are married; 33 percent have children.
Hard Core: Defeating Sexual Temptation with a Superior Satisfaction, by Jason Hardin, is a straightforward little book about an uncomfortable topic. So many—men and women included—are being slaughtered in their struggle with sexual sin. Individual lives, marriages, children, friendships, influences for good, ministries of gospel preachers, and entire congregations of the Lord’s people are being seriously impacted. It is commendable for us to sing, “Soldiers of Christ arise and put your armor on.” But if we sing those words, then proceed to ignore where the battle is being lost, the devastation will only continue to grow.
Hard Core is published by DeWard Publishing. Its 106 pages are broken down into fifteen chapters, with each chapter containing six “Core Questions” for personal reflection or group discussion. Retail: $7.99. IMAGE DISCOUNT – $6.99.
