We live in the midst of a hyper-sexualized society. We are constantly bombarded by messages flaunting sexuality, encouraging lascivious thoughts, and promoting sexuality and sexual fulfillment as the ultimate goal in life. Life is made very difficult for those who would resist and attempt to reflect God's values in this society.

Hardin's Hard Core is a wonderful work of reminder and encouragement to stand up for what is right and true and holy in regards to sexuality. Hardin does well at challenging societal attitudes toward sexuality and the rampant use of pornography, adultery, and general sensuality while strongly affirming the propriety of sexuality and its value in its proper context. Copious Biblical references are cited to warn the reader regarding the dangers of sexual misconduct, to provide examples of sexual immorality committed and refused and their respective consequences, and to encourage believers to focus on making God the ultimate priority of life and not sexuality.

This is a great resource for anyone who is struggling with the idol of sexuality and sensuality in whatever form. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0981970389, Paperback)

This is a straightforward little book about an uncomfortable topic. So many-men and women included-are being slaughtered in their struggle with sexual sin. Individual lives, marriages, children, friendships, influences for good, ministries of gospel preachers, and entire congregations of the Lord's people are being seriously impacted. It is commendable for us to sing, "Soldiers of Christ arise and put your armor on." But if we sing those words, then proceed to ignore where the battle is being lost, the devastation will only continue to grow. If we are going to help men and women of all ages win this battle, we must strike at the root of the problem. We must unashamedly examine God's boundaries. We must call sin, sin. We must sound the call for righteous warfare. We must encourage our brothers and sisters to be steadfast and immovable. We must dedicate ourselves to hard-core holiness and fight sexual temptation with a superior satisfaction.
