Porn-Again Christian: New Free E-Book

Last Updated: March 25, 2024

Are you a man who struggles with looking at porn? Do you want to read an enjoyable, practical and theologically sharp book on the subject?

Mark Driscoll, pastor of Mars Hill Church in Seattle, has released a FREE e-book called Porn-Again Christian: A Frank Discussion on Pornography & Masturbation for God’s Men. You can read it at The Resurgence website or download the full pdf.

Mark introduces the book in a video, and writes on his blog:

Over the years, much of my ministry has been to men in general, and young, single men in particular. The least likely person to go to church in virtually every nation, including my own, is a single man between the ages of eighteen and thirty-four. These guys are a priority for me. . . .

To help these guys, some years ago I sat down and in one day wrote a small booklet about male sexuality that we published in-house. Since then we have gone through thousands of copies and literally cannot keep it in stock. I asked some Christian publishers if they wanted it, and they said it was too hot to handle and so they declined.

So, I decided to just put it online and give it away for free. . . .

I hope this thing goes nuts and hundreds of thousands of guys read it.

As a disclaimer, this book is frank and written to men entrenched in temptation. Driscoll uses frank, sexual language and throws some tough punches. Driscoll writes in this first chapter,

I must speak frankly, as frankly as the Scriptures do on important issues. . . .

While God spoke frankly to Israel, he is certainly not crass like some meat-headed high school boys killing time in a locker room. God is honest and forthright about the truth and his people must not be so prudish as to try and speak in ways that are holier than their God. In our age of lewdness and perversion we, like our Father, must avoid crassness, while wisely and boldly speaking frankly about the joy and beauty of sexual intimacy when it is confined by the loving directions of the God who created both us and our desires.

Driscoll also mentions on his blog:

In closing, I want to say two things. One, a lot of folks will not like the content or tone of this book and I love them and wish them well. You get what you pay for and this is free. Two, a lot of young guys (and some older guys too) tell me they have been helped by this content and if God uses it to help some guys I would be overjoyed with that. So, let the critics fire away and I’ll gladly take the shots for the guys who are walking wounded in an effort to help them get their shield up and sword sharpened.
