Redeemed Like David: How to Overcome Sexual Temptation, by Mark Ballenger
Do you desire to overcome lust, porn, masturbation, and all other forms of sexual temptation? Do you value the power of God’s Word? Redeemed Like David offers a Christ-centered, Bible-based blueprint for overcoming all forms of sexual sin.
Perhaps the most notorious sexual failure in the whole Bible was King David’s affair with Bathsheba. And yet, even with this massive sexual blemish in David’s past, God still called King David “a man after my own heart” (Acts 13:22). How can this be?
The key to understanding David’s redemption is Psalm 51. In Redeemed Like David you will find that Psalm 51 is a roadmap on how to break free from the addictive sexual sins that have consistently plagued you.
While there are plenty of very helpful Christian books on the topic of overcoming sexual temptation, Redeemed Like David is unique in that it takes one specific passage of Scripture and applies it directly to the question, “How can I overcome sexual temptation?” If you are looking for a practical, powerful, expositional, verse-by-verse Bible study that will give you direction on how to overcome sexual sin, this book was made for you.
Redeemed Like David is designed for individual use, accountability partners, or small group Bible studies. Study questions are included for each chapter along with an in-depth leader’s guide.
If you are looking for a proven path to sexual freedom, Psalm 51 is the answer. It worked for King David. It can work for you too.
