From the back cover:

Sex.

We live in a world that loves it without understanding it. This book clearly explains the truth about sex and winsomely responds to society’s evolving views on human sexuality and gender.

From marriage to birth control, homosexuality to singleness, What is the Meaning of Sex? sets forth a distinctly Christian perspective, equipping you to engage our confused culture with a God-glorifying vision of human sexuality.

My thoughts:

Yes, I do know what sex is, I have two kids 🙂 But let’s be honest, I think if we had better understanding of what God originally intended sex to be we might have a lot less issues in our marriages. So I am always looking for books to open up my understanding in this area.

Denny, the author, brings up many thought-provoking questions that had me going…hmmmm…what was God thinking when He did that?

But for the most part this book was a bit to textbook-like for me. When I say that I don’t mean it’s basic stuff, it’s not at all. It is very wordy with words like: teleological and consequentialist. I am a simple girl, and I as I have stated before I like personal stories woven into non-fiction books to make them more appealing to me. Denny does a great job defining these words but I still felt like I was sitting in a lecture hall and getting lost in the crowd.

Needless to say, this book wasn’t for me. However, I think other people who like wordy, heady stuff will enjoy this book and glean a lot of valuable information from it.

Grab your copy at your local bookstore, Amazon, or Christianbook.com. This book doesn’t release until October 31st.

An ebook copy of this book was given to me by the publisher through Netgalley.com in exchange for an honest review.
