DougWeiss-WebAmerica is No. 1 in the world in many ways. Sadly, it's also No. 1 in the purveyor of pornography. Many believers are trapped. Depending upon what surveys you believe, as many as 40% of all Christian men need to come clean from sexual sin.

That's why it's important that we get the word out about Dr. Doug Weiss' new book, Clean, published by Thomas Nelson, which releases today. Instead of haranguing men about their lack of sexual integrity, this is a proven plan for men committed to stay clean. That's because all Christian men have been called to a life of sexual success.

Dr. Weiss is a well-known author and has written many books. I got an advanced copy of his book in February and read it. To me, it's the best book he's written. It's clear and concise, and it has a lot of new information not contained in his other books—things such as intimacy anorexia and the importance of holiness and how it relates to being clean sexually.

Perhaps no representative of Christianity embodied the spirit of a fighting faith as well as the apostle Paul, who suffered profoundly for Christ. He also penned the famous verses in 2 Tim. 4:6-7, which refer to the Christian life as the “good fight.”
