Captured by a Better Vision

You long to be free but ... Pornography has reached epidemic proportions. And in God's eyes porn is ugly. 'Unbearably ugly,' says Tim Chester, 'but for the grace of God.' In the New Testament Paul warns, 'Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness but rather expose them.' Tim Chester points the reader to something infinitely better, something that captivates without causing shame, remorse or embarrassment: the glory and beauty of Christ. We are made to be satisfied with God alone, and told to avoid the sin that hinders our relationship with him. Tim exposes the lies and deceptions of porn, inviting us to be fully free, and showing positively and practically how this can be possible in daily life. We can be captured by a better vision. 'Fantastic practical and realistic help... I highly commend this timely book.' Carl Beech 'A lifeline for those who feel trapped... A message of grace, strength and hope.' Ian Coffey 'Will rescue many a marriage and restore many a man to a place where purity and passion coexist in biblical relationship.' Steve Gaukroger
