Free Ebook! Handbook for Pastors on Porn

December 29, 2010

Covenant Eyes has released a new ebook called Internet Pornography: A Pastor’s Handbook. As a practical resource, this ebook addresses a lot of the thorny issues associated with pornography. The chapters are a nice blend of confession, theological reflection, and practical guidance. I contributed chapter five, but pastors should read through all the chapters whether porn is something they personally struggle with or not. This is a great resource for pastors. Read it! Table of Contents: 1. The Double Life
