No Stones: Women Redeemed from Sexual Addiction
Authors: Marnie C. Ferree and Mark Laaser
In this book, Marnie C. Ferree offers a unique resource for women struggling with sexual addiction. Taking her book’s title from the parable where Jesus extends grace to the woman caught in adultery, Ferree bravely shares her own story of sexual addiction, recalling her years of shame from living a double life and the moment when she ultimately had, to tell the truth. But more than just offering her story as a hopeful example of God’s transforming power, Ferree distils her clinical expertise on female sexual addiction accessibly and gently, providing a much-needed resource for women struggling with any degree of relational or sexual addiction. Ferree details the roots of addiction in family trauma and offers clear-eyed advice as both a counselor and a “grateful recovering sex addict” on how to achieve sobriety and healing. Written by a counselor who understands the condition from the inside out, No Stones offers practical help for those battling sexual addiction. It also includes a specific chapter for anyone in a close relationship with an addict, whether a spouse, family member or friend, who wants to come alongside women as they seek help. Important for pastors and church leaders, this book will also be a much sought-after resource for Christian counselors and therapists counseling women who grapple with this type of addiction.
