Like a rushing current in a dark river, temptations flood all around us. Every believer has felt the undertow. And some, even some prominent Christian leaders, ave not been able to keep their heads above the water.

How can a man stand against these forces? How do men experience common temptations, and what can be done about them? Tom Eisenman gives us a man's perspective on these and other tough issues. In straightforward language he honestly discusses the difficulties he and others have had in avoiding common stumbling blocks in the Christian walk. More than that, in a personal and practical way he shows how deliverance is possible even from besetting sins.

He doesn't stop there. In a chapter for women he tells how they can assist their husbands and suggests what to do when a man resists help. Finally, Eisenman offers general strategies for all of us on how to oppose temptations and find freedom from the evil that binds us.

"Sometimes candid writers can graphically pinpoint problems but miss the solutions. Not so Tom Eisenman. He is scriptural, relevant, and involved with readers."
