How God's Vision for Sex Points Us to the Good, Unlocks the True, and (Sort Of) Explains Everything
  • By Joshua Ryan Butler
Product Description
A powerful call for Christians to understand sex as a window into God's story of redemption, and a validating guide to living with authentic love in a changing culture--from the influential pastor and author of The Skeletons in God's Closet.

It's time to better understand God's redemptive vision for humanity's greatest obsession. In this bold book, award-winning author Joshua Ryan Butler helps readers rediscover the beauty of the traditional Christian theology of sex by framing it within the greater things it is designed to point to. As our culture's values and expressions of sexuality shift, there is a growing tension between the casual way everyone seems to be doing it and historic teaching about the sacred beauty and dignity of the body, which affirms sex as diversity-in-union, of marriage as faithful love, and of procreation as life-giving presence.

At their worst, some Christian theologies of sex have been confused, repressive, and shame-based. They have resulted in situations of sex-negativity, hypocrisy, and even abuse. But contrary to popular opinion, this is not because of the teachings of the Bible. In fact, this is in spite of them. There is a better way, found by understanding God's design for our sexual natures. A way of freedom, pleasure, and meaning.

Influential pastor and respected author Joshua Ryan Butler is used to leading the hard conversations. In this inspiring, provocative and surprisingly fun guide, he shows us all afresh--regardless of our struggles, sexual background, or singleness--the beauty and meaning of sexuality as part of God's story--and empowers all of us to live with clarity, faithfulness, insight, and love.
