Illusions of Intimacy
Unmasking Patterns of Sexual Addiction and Bringing Deep Healing to Those Who Struggle
by Signa Bodishbaugh
The world has become infected with the virus of sexual addiction and pornography. The material presented on our TV screens grows darker and more explicit each year. In addition to that the internet provides free passage into darker territory still. This virus is deadly, and millions are already slowly dying inside from its insidious effects.
This book is an antidote to the present pornographic epidemic. It is a message of hope and not despair. It gives the reader valuable information on how the “virus” of sexual addiction originates and what keeps it alive. Better still, it presents practical and godly ways in which freedom from this bondage can be found. It tells the stories of men and women who have escaped the trap of compulsive addictions to live healthy, productive, fruitful lives.
If you or anyone you know is struggling with these issues, this book will give you the necessary tools to break free and know complete healing and deliverance.
