Tactics: Securing the Victory in Every Young Man's Battle (Paperback)
The ultimate showdown calls for the ultimate team. Jesus and you.
God sets a pretty high standard for sexual purity for his men: "Among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality" (Ephesians 5:3). Can you reach that standard? You've tried-and often succeeded. But if you haven't quite finished the job, you still need the right game day tactics to defeat temptation-and be God's champion. Tactics picks up where Every Young Man's Battle leaves off. It explains why sexual sin is so addictive and why guys battling in the trenches to stay pure still struggle. Most of all, it unveils the spiritual front of this epic match-up and how an intimate connection to the Father is the edge needed for victory. Grab hold of these practical steps to the deeper spiritual intimacy that will neutralize the sexual pollution in today's culture. And start living to the extreme with God.

“Tactics is a brilliant addition to the groundbreaking Every Young Man’s Battle–insightful and practical as it dismantles lies and shame, a gift of freedom and truth.”

“Engaging in a topic so many people are afraid to talk about, Tactics takes us into the locker room and shows us the playbook, pointing out the opponent’s strengths, challenging us to continue to train hard, and reminding us that we have a loving Father who shows up at every game cheering us on. Fred is the father many of my generation wish they had. His words on sexual purity–the specific damage and rewards to one’s social life when one radically commits to it–are some of the most insightful I’ve come across.”
–Glenn Lavender and Jeremy Thiessen of the Dove-Award-winning band, Downhere
