It's an intriguing idea, one I've never heard before. I'm still digesting it, but I will say that the author makes a compelling case, using Scripture and science to back up his claims. I will say that it fits together well with many other recent attempts to explain why men do what they do. In fact, "Wild at Heart" author John Eldredge has endorsed "Surfing For God."
Lust is a common struggle for most men, and Christians do not get a free pass. I hope this books claims, if true, will lead to freedom for many of its readers.

I mean it.
Any ideas? Give free groceries in a lower-income neighborhood? Go to a gay bar and tell people how much Jesus loves them? Pass out school supplies to needy kids? Give free bibles? (Side note: when purchased in case quantities, the cost per bible is about one-third that of a chicken sandwich.)
These things have all been done on a small scale from time to time. But now we know we can mobilize as a nation. What can we do that will make a positive difference, all in one day? Something that focuses on Jesus and not an "issue"?
Then, we need a celebrity Christian with a Huckabee-like following. Not that I know any.
