Sex, Desire, and Relationships Shaped by God’s Grand Story
Dr. Christopher Yuan explores the concept of holy sexuality—chastity in singleness or faithfulness in marriage—in a practical and relevant manner, equipping readers with an accessible yet robust theology of sexuality. Whether you want to share Christ with a loved one who identifies as gay or you’re wrestling with questions of identity yourself, this book will help you better understand sexuality in light of God’s grand story and realize that holy sexuality is actually good news for all.
This was a very insightful book. It didn’t give some of the answers you come to expect on this topic and it really spun my thinking around a bit.
Christopher showed that these desires that people are following are really all about stealing our identity. The enemy wants nothing more then to trick people into believing they are what they feel and instead of they do what they feel. They become what they feel and this isn’t what God intended.
There were many great qoutes in this book here are a few:
“We don’t need to find our identity,; our identity is give by God.” Location 241
“The imago Dei is the only true foundation of human rights” Image of God. Location 370
“Instead of determining how we ought to live based on enduring patterns of erotic desires, God’s call for all humanity, quite simply, is holiness.” Location 783
There is much more to this book then these few quotes but it was very eye-opening. If you find this topic interesting I recommend this book.
