A no-holds-barred presentation, The Anatomy of Seduction takes an empowering look at the seduction and entrapment by Satan of our sexual nature, and the Lord’s salvation and freedom from these traps. Hayford uses his own experience in being freed from entrapment, as well as experience gained ministering to others.
Seeing past the world’s false glamour, identifying the unpredictable demon of seduction, Hayford starts with a clear, recognizable description of seduction’s trap, its lures, and despair. Yet from the beginning, he wraps the subject in the true hope and freedom described in the word of God. Pulling no punches, with sympathy towards the entrapped, Hayford discusses this subject’s demonic activities, including pornography, lust, adultery, fornication, and masturbation. The culminating section takes a deep look at how to defend our hearts for God: “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds.” (2 Corinthians 10:4) Useful tools are given: four liberating keys; walking in God’s emancipation; and prayers ranging from receiving Christ as Lord and Savior to renouncing sin and inviting deliverance. A section answering real, forthright questions, along with a list for further information, provides even more help.
University chancellor, denominational president, pastor, and noted author Jack Hayford supplies an acutely needed tool for those trapped, and those ministering to the entrapped, whether laymen or theologians. Youth and adult facilitators, pastors, and parents of all denominations will find The Anatomy of Seduction valuable. – Donna Eggett, Christian Book Previews.com
Pastor Jack Hayford identifies seduction as anything that pulls us away from the light of God and His intended purpose for our lives. Today’s world is a minefield of temptation, ready to bombard any one of us with destructive blasts of the indecent and the lewd—from the glamorization of immoral lifestyle choices to the acceptance of marital infidelity, pornography and perversion as the norm.
How can we confront and conquer the enticements that seek to lure us each and every day? In The Anatomy of Seduction, Pastor Hayford speaks frankly about the traps of sexual and moral seduction and equips the reader with the practical application of biblical wisdom to stand the ground of a disciple. Be prepared with real-world solutions when temptation knocks, readied to defend with spiritual integrity, empowered with truth and enabled to keep the focus centered on God.
