Book Summary of Captured by a Better Vision by Tim Chester


“Today there is an epidemic of pornography.” (p. 8) Both men and women are destroying their lives and families with this destructive sin. Pornography offers false promises and fleeting pleasures, but it is all an ugly lie, and God hates it. 

Yet, in His grace, God offers a better way. The key is to be captured by a better vision. “Don’t just try to stop using porn, important though that is…get a vision for something much bigger: a vision of reflecting Christ’s glory in the world. Only this will be big enough to eclipse the appeals of porn.” (p. 159)

There is hope for those struggling with pornography, but this hope is not merely in what not to do, it is found in cultivating gladness in the glory of God. The gospel offers forgiveness of sins and the righteousness of Christ. In the gospel, believers must see that God is infinitely more lovely than any sin. They ought to walk in this beauty rather than in the ugliness of porn.
