He reminds everyone of the grace of Jesus Christ who, in his mercy, intervenes at every moment of our journey towards restoration. Author David Powlison shows us the path to a profound transformation that surpasses anything the world has to offer. He reminds us that the solution is not in renewed determination, superficial forgiveness or simplistic formulas, but in the genuine and enduring mercy of God who makes all things new.

"In He's making all things new , David Powlison offers us a gem, a helping hand and a sure bet. He is faithful to the Scriptures and, like them, he remains a realist. It shows us how a life restored by Christ transforms the definition of sexuality. This book is not made up of empty promises; he is down to earth. What are your struggles or those of the people you love? Take David's hand and walk this road with the Lord. The author reveals to each of us how the torment of sexual sin is a symptom of an evil that escapes us. Repentance will begin a remodeling, and this affordable book will lead you to those dark corners, endowed with the light of Christ. As the world demands its sexual rights and privileges, God's people owe it to themselves to offer more than moral platitudes or behavior modification programs. We already have a Savior who knows how to help His people. In addition, we now have an accessible manual which will help the sinner to discern the depth of the fight to be waged, and which will assist parents and their allies in applying faith to the desperate situations of captives.

"I really like David Powlison. Few of today's writers have shaped my approach to evangelical growth and even to preaching so much. Gifted Christian counselors like Powlison read the Bible in a special way. They expose both the truth of the Scriptures and the foundations of the human heart, revealing where the two intersect. I can't help but believe that in the first century, hearing Jesus preach one might conclude that he was an extremely gifted counselor. In this exceptionally relevant book, the author offers the hope of the gospel to those who have committed sexual sins and to those who have suffered from them. I am excited to offer this tool to people who, in this specific area of their lives, may feel their need for the gospel for the first time.

"Nothing stifles joy like discrepancies and sexual abuse, and nothing troubles many people nowadays as deeply as the deception, corruption and bruises related to this field. This easy-to-read book offers compassion without compromise; it sets out principles while being practical. It lights up the darkness for those who seek to escape it and provides hope for those who desperately need it. "
