Love & Sex

Sex is powerful! Just saying the word "sex" can stir up all kinds of emotions inside people. Maybe it's a positive emotion for you, or a hurtful, shameful, confusing one. It's no wonder we humans struggle to understand its meaning and purpose. It can be difficult to talk about and even worse if we have experienced unwanted shame or grew up in a home where sex was a taboo topic. In Love & Sex, Nancy Houston provides a compassionate view of human sexuality. Through the lens of Scripture, she unpacks the good God intended when he created humans as sexual creatures and honestly shows how that plan hasn't been the case for many. You won't find a critical examination of dos and don'ts but stories of redemption, grace, and hope. You will understand how you were shaped and how you are more than your sexual behaviors. Many say, "What's the big deal?" For others, sex is a huge deal, maybe too big of a deal. How do you find health, happiness, balance, and pleasure in this God-given gift? This book will be that road map for you. And if you have been one of the few unscathed by sexual shame or confusion, this book will help you develop a more compassionate lens for those who do struggle. In a world of sexual chaos and confusion, we all need a healthy dialogue on this topic-not a black-or-white, right-or-wrong lecture, but a safe forum for discovering, learning, processing, and growing into passionate intimacy within the freedom of communion with our Creator.
