God Loves Sex: An Honest Conversation about Sexual Desire and Holiness

God Loves Sex

About

“It’s rare to find a Christian book about sex that is real and helpful and honest. God Loves Sex is all of that and more.”–Donald Miller, bestselling author of Blue Like Jazz and A Million Miles in a Thousand Years

The church’s stance on sexual matters has been clear throughout history: all sexual activity outside the boundaries of Christian marriage is sin. So we hide our struggles and pretend to live above the erotic fray, or else we embrace the culture’s redefinition of what is acceptable. But in this book Allender and Longman explore what the Bible really says about sexual desire and sexual intimacy.

God Loves Sex
offers a truly liberating, godly view of holy sensuality by recovering the clear meaning of the Song of Songs as God-sanctioned eroticism. Then it uses that lens to answer questions posed by a fictional new Christian struggling with expectations of sexual purity. It asks provocative questions, such as What does it mean to be both holy and filled with rich sexual desire?and How can our sexual struggles take us deeper into the purposes of God?

Pairing psychological insight with sound biblical scholarship, the authors bring desire and sex out into the open, allowing Christians of any age and any marital status to understand sex the way God meant it to be.

“In a world where sex most often lives in confusion, perversion, compulsion, guilt, and shame, it is wonderful that Allender and Longman use the Bible’s sex song to restore sex to its original created beauty.”–Paul David Tripp, author of Sex & Money
