Becoming the Man She Desires
By Fred Stoeker
We live in a culture where the exercise of a man’s sexual drive outside of marriage is considered acceptable by many. Every man and many boys are confronted with impure images through the media. Fighting against the current to become the man of God’s calling is difficult indeed. Best-selling author Fred Stoeker, along with his son Jasen and his friend Mike Yorkey bring to the public eye a book of real life struggle and success; exposing deeply entrenched misconceptions with the truth of a man’s role in a romantic relationship. This book is a must have weapon for any young man who desires to fight for purity and follow after God’s heart by truly living his life as a hero for the significant woman in his life.
Fred’s story is that of a fugitive from impurity, a fugitive turned hero. He turned away from the prodigal lifestyle that had taken hold of him and he ran after Christ despite the difficulties. Through the conviction of his beliefs, founded on his deep love for God, he broke the chain of generations of Stoeker men who failed to maintain their own purity. He married and brought up his own son with the hope that he, Jasen, would accept the challenge Christ gives to each man-to protect and defend His daughters’ chastity. Jasen succeeded, even to a point past his father’s expectations, and found the girl of his dreams. He shares his story, along with his father’s, to create a incredible testimony that would inspire any man.
Although the intended audience is certainly male, this book is beneficial for females to read as well. Among other points, the book stresses the vulnerabilty of males triggered by a woman’s attire or physical touch. This book will help women readers understand how they can better help their heroic suitor to overcome daily temptations. And for those of us who have invested in the struggle to protect unborn life, we must keep in mind that there are a whole series of events that must happen before a girl or a woman finds herself pregnant and on the threshold of an abortion clinic. A return to the values of chastity and purity are necessary if we are going to move away from a culture of death and transition to a culture of life.
