Endorsements for How Pornography Harms

 John D. Foubert, Ph.D.

How Pornography Harms fills a big need in our fight against pornography. There are a great many books that tell us why the Christian community should be against pornography, but John Foubert provides the intelligent reasons to fight the battle and supplies the ammunition to conquer this devastating issue.

This book is about an unsettling truth, one that requires immediate attention from all advocates of social justice, regardless of their particular faith. John Foubert’s analysis is an important tool for those seeking to get involved in the ongoing struggle to curb one of the world’s most compelling social problems. He should be commended for “telling us like it is” and for his never ending dedication to eliminating pornographic materials from our lives.

The wide-spread use of pornography is harmful to individuals, marriages, and those involved in the porn industry.  This highly potent digital drug is destroying lives and families. It is time for all of us to be educated about the harmful effects of pornography and take a stand to protect children and those who are unaware. Dr. Foubert is a world-leader and academic in this area. This book is an important reference that all need to read.

Pornography is a pandemic plague wreaking untold havoc. This well-written, well-researched book is a powerful prescription. Dr. Foubert hits the issue from all sides, including the biblical, spiritual dimension, and gives hope and practical help for avoiding and overcoming this spiritual cancer. Every person, especially every Christian, needs to be armed with the truth in this book. Read it, apply it, and pass it on to others.

Pornography has morphed into a ubiquitous assault on human dignity, with the Internet providing a vehicle presenting this supernormal stimulus with limitless novelty.  Dr. John Foubert has accurately described the harm and toxicity pornography wreaks upon individuals and couples, and presents the perspective not only of scholars, but also of those directly affected.  This book not only provides a warning, but also offers solutions we would do well to follow in addressing what has become the major public health crisis of our time.

In comprehensively reviewing a rapidly growing literature on the enormous pornography industry, John Foubert has provided a compelling argument that the on-line sexually explicit media now ubiquitously available is a source of environmental pollution that has the potential to harm nearly everyone with whom it comes into contact, perhaps with the exception of those who reap huge profits from compromising the sexualities of users and performers. As the author points out, there is now considerable evidence of the link between pornography consumption and real-world violence. And as with all violent media, its effects are subtle, cumulative, and indirect. How Pornography Harms is essential reading for anyone who is concerned about the numerous social issues connected with the distribution of this demeaning material.

As someone who has worked with college students for many years, I've witnessed firsthand in their stories the heartache, sorrow, guilt, and shame that accompanies pornography use. This well-researched book goes far beyond this sad reality, however, in detailing the insidious, addictive, and violent nature of the pornography industry and its devastating impact on women, men, and society. While the facts are startling, Dr. Foubert also provides practical steps that can be taken by counselors, pastors, educators, parents, and others to bring a positive message of hope.

How Pornography Harms is a wake-up call for society and the church. If Dr. Foubert is right, and I think he is, we must have the courage to tackle the issue of pornography head on. This book is a must-read for anyone who cares about the health of individuals, families, and our culture as a whole. Pick up a copy, read it, and help spread the word."

John is one of the courageous experts who places the issue of pornography in America front and center.  Today, the subject is overwhelming, complicated, and politically incorrect – yet absolutely devastating to an entire generation worldwide.  I applaud this book!  Straightforward, well researched and practical for families.

How Porn Harms sounds the alarm for parents, counselors, educators, and pastors alike who continue to be naive to pornography's devastating effects on our children and our culture.  Dr. Foubert balances scientific research with personal narratives to create an engaging and enlightening portrayal of a national epidemic.  I highly recommend the book and commend Dr. Foubert for his ongoing work to raise awareness on this subject.

The title of this book says it all, pornography harms.  Pornography is a disease in our culture, and as an educator and a parent, I am concerned that it is largely going untreated.  John Foubert’s new book, “How Pornography Harms: What Teens, Young Adults, Parents & Pastors Need to Know” is part of the prescription for fighting the spread of this disease.  This book will shock you into awareness and prepare you to help cure and prevent pornography’s impact on our youth.  If you care about the coming generations, this is a must read.”

Dr. Foubert’s collection of research and insights into today’s porn culture will smack you in the face with one cold hard fact: porn harms.  It doesn’t harm a few, some, or many.  It harms all.  Pornography has changed our society and Foubert unassailably documents that there is nothing positive in the result.
