D. Scott Hildreth is the George Leile Director of the Center for Great Commission Studies at Southeastern Seminary. Normally, he thinks, teaches and writes about missions — and how we can bring gospel hope to the nations.
Yet In his latest book, Bondage and Freedom, he tackles a decidedly different topic: pornography. In it, he brings gospel hope to enslaved individuals in our own churches.
We had the privilege to talk with Dr. Hildreth about his new book, and how you can find hope in your own battle with pornography and sexual sin.
Why did you decide to write Bondage and Freedom?
I wrote Bondage and Freedom to give a biblical view of sexuality and to provide a practical tool for those who were struggling with pornography. In January 2018, I published a book about the mission of the Southern Baptist Convention. When it came out on Amazon, we all realized there was another author who writes under my name. His material consists of graphic porn/erotica novels. I scrambled to figure out what to do.
Then, I thought, if people see his material when they search my name, it is possible readers will see my material when they search his name. My hope is that the book provides help and hope for those who may even accidentally stumble on it while they are searching for porn.
