“The first chapter was easily the best thing I have ever read on what the Scriptures teach about the heart. The book is seriously worth buying for that chapter alone. I would recommend this book for those not only struggling with sexual sin but any sin in general. Dr. John Street leads the reader through the whole process of change and consistently points back to Christ as the source of hope and change – not moralism.”
“Dr. Street has delivered a masterful work that accurately handles God’s word and brings it to bear upon the issues facing so many people today. Having had some experience counseling young men who struggle with pornography’s captivity, I can say that few books are as helpful or needed as Passions of the Heart. Dr. Street digs deep into the issues that are at the root of human sin problems and he shows, by sound biblical reasoning, how to go about finding freedom through Christ’s power.
This book is not another discourse on the latest psychological method meant to sate someone’s bad feelings over their choices. Rather, this book exposes the human heart and the issues we all hide within ourselves. It poignantly exposes the deepest sin problems of the human heart. But it does not leave us there, it shows, through Scripture and years of experience, the means to true freedom from the inner passions of the heart.”
