Porn Again Christian (free e-book), by Mark Driscoll
Mark Driscoll’s writing style is much like his preaching-blunt, biblical, bold, and balanced. Porn Again is as refreshing as it is hard-hitting. Driscoll’s book is a rudimentary theology of lust which aims at proclaiming the victory available to us in the gospel. Driscoll calls men to “take any sexual sins you may have as seriously as your God does.” He also includes an appendix for military men “and other men who like prostitutes.”

Porn Nation, by Michael Leahy.
Michael Leahy’s story of porn addiction is not necessarily unusual. What’s unusual is the fact that he is talking about it. In Porn Nation, Leahy walks the reader through the depths of his addiction and unfortunate results of it. This book isn’t a practical, how-to-get-free sort of book, but rather a culture alarm. Leahy writes frankly about the problem of over-sexualized media and how it are shaping our sexual expectations.
