A biblical perspective on what sex is designed to be, to mean and to do for us.

Christians are increasingly seen as outdated, restrictive and judgmental when it comes to sex before marriage, cohabitation and homosexuality. In fact for many people, this issue is one of the biggest barriers for them considering Christianity.

Sam Allberry, author of many books including Is God Anti-gay sets out God’s good design for the expression of human sexuality. Readers will be shown that God himself is love and his blueprint for sex is designed to help us to flourish and live out our full humanity.

It is a great reminder of the Bible’s teaching on love, sex and marriage and ideal for giving away to people who may see it as a stumbling block for belief.

Author and Pastor

Sam Allberry writes with clarity and empathy about one of the biggest questions of our day. His honesty and sense of humour cut through the stereotypes and platitudes we might be used to hearing about sexual relationships. Here is a counter cultural voice challenging us to consider afresh the Christian Faith and ultimately a relationship with God amidst the changing landscape of culture we find ourselves in.

Given all the controversies and challenges surrounding sex I am delighted to welcome this bold, wise and sensitive treatment of the issues at stake. This is a book capable of changing opinions, altering viewpoints and, ultimately, rescuing lives. Thank you Sam Allberry!
