Coming Clean (Paperback)
CHRISTIANS JUST SHOULDN'T HAVE TO STRUGGLE AGAINST SEXUAL SIN AND TEMPTATION
And yet, you fight the battle all the time. If this is you, or someone you love, I believe these words will provide you with encouragement, comfort, and the challenge of being really honest with yourself every day. It was written during my recovery from my addiction to pornography and provides a daily verse, a paragraph about what that verse meant to me in my recovery, a question, and four Bible verses that speak to the question. God really does want to bring you peace and wholeness.
The only way a sexually broken man can make real progress is to grow in his relationship with Jesus. That means prayer and assimilation of God's Word. Buck Levis's Coming Clean is a great help from men needing to connect with God through Scripture. It provides a short reading from the Bible, thoughts on how to incorporate that into your recovery, and a provocative question for further study and prayer. I recommend it, especially if you've had a hard time getting your devotional discipline off the ground.

Coming Clean is a year of daily devotional reflections on Scripture journaled by a man during what he called "the greatest struggle of my life." The personal application of the truth of God's Word by Buck Levis is candid, insightful, honest, and direct. Although written by one who struggled with sexual sin, Buck has come to see that what was learned offers "help for all of us who plagued by a besetting sin of any kind, whether sexual or any other kind."
Reading God's Word each day, Buck asked God to pick an excerpt from Scripture and show him what that passage meant in his life at the moment. This he did for approximately four years. Grouping them "by the things in his life with which God was dealing, no attempt was made to put them in chronological order."
Such a highly personal devotional book could be viewed as somewhat limited. However, well written and truly insightful the reader will find they, too, are being enlightened and challenged, as each devotional concludes with a personal and practical question, followed by four relevant passages of Scripture.
