Review 2 for The Truth About Sex; What the World Won't Tell You and God Wants You to Know
In the book The Truth About Sex, Kay Arthur addresses many of the misconceptions the world has about sex, by applying God's lessons on the topic as found in Scripture. Whereas the world would paint sex as something functional, mechanical, and without emotional commitments or responsibilities, Arthur argues, "Sex, in its perfect form, brings the intimacy of not only truly belonging to another but longing for the presence of our beloved. It is hallowed purity, the union of a husband and wife that becomes a holy metaphor of the 'wife' God seeks for His Son, of the oneness He longs to have with his people." Arthur boldly confronts the sexual whimsy of the world. She asserts that when people say they are merely sowing wild oats, they want to live and let live, and they do not want to judge others because of their sexual preferences, in reality they are distorting God's purpose for sex. Using passages from the Bible to contradict these improper attitudes, Arthur offers discussion questions at the end of her chapters so that friends and study groups can discuss these matters at length. An additional study guide at the back of the book provides a course outline. This book is an excellent resource for people who are dating or are engaged, but it also is an insightful text for those who have been married a long time and wish to be role models or mentors for others. This generation is being bombarded with sexual images on TV, in ads, on the Internet, and in movies; it's good to have a book that provides God's perspective on what should be a righteous expression of love. -- Marsha Boyanowski, Christian Book Previews.com
