  • Every Bodys Story

    $19.99

    Every story entails a way of life and how every way of life implies a big story.

    In Every Body’s Story, Branson Parler focuses on three predominant myths of sexuality in our secular age–individualism, romance, and materialism–and three dominant myths in Christian circles–anti-body theology, legalism, and the sexual prosperity gospel–exploring how those stories shape our practice. Our views of sexuality and our practices around sex are never just about sex. How we use and view our bodies reveals who/what we think God is (or is not) and who we are.

    If we truly understand the biblical logic of marriage, sexuality, and singleness–that they are meant to embody the gospel–then we will better understand why this witness is so vital. As God’s self-giving faithfulness is put on display by both married and single Christians, those formed by our secular age will have to ask: What if it’s true? What if there’s more? What if God really does love us that much? Rather than viewing our sexuality as an isolated matter of ethics, we can see how the gospel places our sexuality in the context of God’s rescue mission of the world.

  • After The Revolution

    $24.99

    Equipping the church to recover from sexual confusion

    In After the Revolution, David J. Ayers provides the Christian heirs of the sexual revolution a resource to understand their challenges and social context to find a way forward. Drawing on social sciences and history, Ayers traces recent worldview shifts in North America and Europe. The historic Christian understanding of sex and marriage has been supplanted. And sexual confusion has infiltrated the church, especially influencing younger Christians.

    The church can uniquely and compassionately support sexual faithfulness and flourishing, but we need to reject formulas, surefire methods, and judgmentalism. Instead, we must recover a positive vision for Christian sexuality, singleness, and marriage that is firmly grounded in God’s word.

  • Pure : Why The Bible’s Plan For Sexuality Isn’t Outdated, Irrelevant, Or Op

    $14.99

    Few things bring more immediate scrutiny and impassioned angst among young adult Christians today than hearing the words “purity culture.” Serious flaws from purity culture deserve to be scrutinized, especially given its lasting negative effects on some raised in the movement. Many Christians today reject the movement-and all that it stood for-wholesale. However, we can’t ignore the clear sexual ethics of the Bible. Pure dives into the big picture of God’s design for men and women regarding sexuality, and seeks to reclaim one of the clearest teaching in the scriptures: the call to sexual purity. While purity culture gets the truth right, the approach and gospel elements it espouses are often wrong. Let’s not throw the baby out with the bath water, but rather celebrate God’s great design for marriage and the loving boundaries he has put in place for our joy, protection, and flourishing.

  • Marriage Manual For Former Homosexuals

    $15.95

    Sexuality in humans is an intended and basic element in creation. God made man and woman; God made sex. These basic tenets of biblical faith form the core of a theology of marriage. Marriage is the context of human sexuality, invented not by man but by God.

    By God’s Spirit, genuine conversion places each of us into Christ. Paul says we are a new creature (2 Corinthians 5:17); we are made new in Christ. All the problems have not been cleared up, but from God’s point of view, we are saints. A gay person who trusts Christ as Savior can break out of the homosexual label. It is not adopting a heterosexual label, but rather it is identifying with Christ.

    The kind of marriage relationship referred to here can only happen when two people freely choose to be committed to and involved with each other. It means making a decision to work out problems and overcome disagreements. It means growing together bit by bit, persevering in love when it appears separation is possible.

    We do not promote “conversion therapy,” and neither did the Love In Action ministry. In the 1970s, when few were proud to be gay, there were those who wanted out of that life. Despite the pride movement, there are still those who want out of the gay lifestyle, even some of those who marched in gay parades in San Francisco. For many, the gay life is not very gay at all.Few know the battle, the wrestling against powerful bodily forces plus the schemes of the devil, like those who seek to honor their Lord Jesus and turn from sexual sin. There are stories of people who have fallen away and gotten mired once again in homosexuality. Yet, there are the stories of many who turned their eyes upon Jesus and by the power of the Holy Spirit have resisted the wiles of their enemy, Satan. May this be so for those who examine this volume.

    Now, fifty-two years after writing the Marriage Manual for Former Homosexuals as a thesis for a DMin degree at San Francisco Theological Seminary (Presbyterian, USA), in San Anselmo, California, it has come time for its publication.

    Contains explicit sexual language.

  • God And The LGBT Community

    $19.99

    Who has the answers to tough questions about sexuality?

    Questions about what the Bible says about the LGBT community abound in Christian circles. Pastors and ministry leaders are flooded with inquiries. Parents and loved ones ask how to respond to a son or daughter asking about reassignment surgery or struggling with same-sex attraction. And many individuals question their own LGBT lifestyle choices.

    Does anybody have all the answers to these crucial and timely questions? Yes! Author Janet Boynes says God’s Word has all the answers!

    In God & the LGBT Community, Janet shares out of her own personal experience of redemption and transformational love. Armed with biblical truths, profound insight, and deeply rooted compassion, she tackles tough issues in an easy-to-read, tangible resource…
    *Is sexual orientation determined at birth?
    *Can someone be a Christian and gay?
    *Should pastors be afraid to address these issues from the pulpit?
    *How can parents validate their children but not celebrate the LGBT lifestyle?
    *Real-life testimonies of redemption.

    If you or someone you know struggles with sexuality, this book points the way to compassion without compromise and delivers the freedom that truth brings!

  • Talking With Teens About Sexuality

    $16.99

    When Dr. Robinson asked her freshman psychology students what today’s parents need to know about teens and sex, they said parents do not have a realistic view of the world their children live in. A healthy sexual identity requires more than just a list of what not to do. In today’s culture of sexual identity confusion, ubiquitous pornography, and #MeToo, teenagers need to know how to protect themselves as well as how to treat others.

    Talking with Teens about Sexuality will help you understand your teen’s world and give you effective strategies in the midst of cultural pressures. Drs. Robinson and Scott provide scientifically reliable and biblically based information about gender fluidity, types of intimacy, online dangers, setting boundaries, and much more. Along the way, the book provides useful conversation starters and insightful guidance.

    Don’t let fear keep you from engaging in vital conversations. Learn how to talk to your teen with knowledge and confidence, guiding them toward a sexually healthy future.

  • Gen SeXYZ : Love, Sexuality And Youth

    $15.99

    “Corrupt the young. Get them away from religion. Encourage their interest in sex….”-Vladimir Lenin, 1921, How to Destroy the West

    Going through each of the prophetic statements made by Lenin in 1921 shows why America is where it is today. Only 4 percent of Gen Z think about life through a biblical lens. To them, sexuality is more important than friends, family, or their faith.

    Jeff Grenell’s goal in Gen SeXYZ: Love, Sexuality & Youth is to reach youth, youth leaders, and the church with a message that kicks the devil to the curb and restores sexuality to its God-given origins.

    When the church failed to respond to the sexual revolution of the 1960s and the present one of the 21st century, its role in society crumbled. The media stopped censoring, the government redefined marriage, schools taught progressive sex education, and the list of genders grew. We’ve experienced generational loss because we’ve gotten further away from the source of our original knowledge of sexuality: the Bible.

    Jeff points out that our understanding of sexuality must be anchored to the fact that God is love and the devil stole sex. He provides direct quotations from teenagers and leaders, practical knowledge, and tools to launch a spiritual revolution of love and truth that will grow the church to reach younger generations and combat the loveless, godless sexuality ethic in our culture that’s misleading them.

  • For The Body

    $22.99

    The human body is an amazing gift, yet today, many people downplay its importance and fail to understand what Christianity teaches about our bodies and their God-given purposes. We misunderstand how the body was designed, its role in relating to others, and lack awareness of the dangers of objectifying the body, divorcing it from its intended purpose.

    In For the Body, author Timothy Tennent looks at what it means to be created in the image of God and how our bodies serve as icons that illuminate God’s purposes. Tennant examines topics like marriage, family, singleness, and friendship, and he looks at how the human body has been objectified in art and media today. He also offers a framework for discipling people today in a Christian theology of the body.

    Tennent explores the contours of a robust Christian vision of the body and human sexuality and the variety of different ways we are called into relationships with others. This book is a call to a deeper understanding of our body and an invitation to recapture the wonder of this amazing gift. It is a theological vision that informs our self-understanding, how we treat others, and how we engage today’s controversial and difficult discussions on human sexuality with grace, wisdom, and confidence.

  • Our Bodies Tell Gods Story

    $19.99

    In response to a world awash in sexual chaos and gender confusion, this book offers a bold and thoroughly biblical look at the meaning of the body, sex, gender, and marriage.

    Bestselling author, cultural commentator, and popular theologian Christopher West is one of the world’s most recognized teachers of John Paul II’s Theology of the Body. He specializes in making this teaching accessible to all Christians, with particular attention to evangelicals. As West explains, from beginning to end the Bible tells a story of marriage. It begins with the marriage of man and woman in an earthly paradise and ends with the marriage of Christ and the church in an eternal paradise.

    In our post-sexual-revolution world, we need to remember that our bodies tell a divine story and proclaim the gospel itself. As male and female and in the call to become “one flesh,” our bodies reveal a “great mystery” that mirrors Christ’s love for the church (Eph. 5:31-32). This book provides a redemptive rather than repressive approach to sexual purity, explores the true meaning of sex and marriage, and offers a compelling vision of what it means to be created male and female. Foreword by Eric Metaxas.

  • Beyond Shame : Creating A Healthy Sex Life On Your Own Terms

    $16.99

    We all carry sexual shame. Whether we grew up in the repressive purity culture of American Evangelical Christianity or not, we’ve all been taught in subtle and not-so-subtle ways that sex (outside of very specific contexts) is immoral and taboo. Psychotherapist Matthias Roberts helps readers overcome their shame around sex by overcoming three unhealthy coping mechanisms we use to manage that shame.

    Beyond Shame encourages each of us to determine our own definition of healthy sex, while avoiding the ditches of boundaryless sex positivity on the one hand and strict moralistic boundaries on the other. Define your sexual values on your own terms, overcome your shame, and start having great, healthy sex.

  • Closing The Floodgates Enhanced Edition

    $28.99

    “In Closing the Floodgates, psychotherapist Dr. Ann Gillies has written a blockbuster of a book exposing the biased, unscientific, and corrupt methods used to promote the sexual revolution of the last sixty years. In her powerful and compelling analysis, she shows how the truth of scientific fact has been overturned in the interest of pleasure and personal feelings, and how a determined minority is using social engineering to reconstruct our social and moral worlds by redefining gender, sexuality and the family. She draws an alarming picture of the consequences: identity confusion among the youth; sexual abuse and victimization of children; soaring rates of suicide and sexually transmitted diseases; the embedding of false, unhealthy, and immoral teaching in the school curriculum; and the loss of freedom of speech and parental rights. While a few readers may find the level of detailed academic content challenging at times, Dr. Gillies is able to make professional findings understandable and real for the average person. For all the necessary research and statistical reporting, this is a gut-level book. In a time of culture wars, when the truth about gender and sexuality is under attack, this book sets the record straight. It issues a rallying cry to parents and others concerned for the future of the family and western society to be informed and take action before it is too late.”

  • Holy Love : A Biblical Theology For Human Sexuality

    $14.99

    Do conservatives or progressives “own” the teachings about what the Bible says about human sexuality and marriage? For some–perhaps a vocal minority–the question is no longer up for debate or discussion: conservatives win. For others, the issues are not that simple. A fresh, rigorous, but yet concise, theological examination of the Bible’s teachings is required. There are other ways to interpret scripture faithfully with respect to sexuality other than the conservative interpretation.

    In Holy Love, Steve Harper strives to articulate the truth about the teachings of the Bible and Wesleyan tradition on human sexuality. This very accessible book is intended for church leaders, small groups, and those interested in understanding the Bible’s teaching on this fundamental component of human life, experience and relationships. The book will help church leaders and small groups make the constructive case that biblical, Christian teaching is compatible with faithful, covenantal love and intimacy amidst all sexual orientations.

  • Redeemed Sexuality : A Guide To Sexuality For Christian Singles, Campus Stu

    $19.99

    You are a sexual person. Whether you are single or married, a teenager or an older single adult, God created you as a sexual person. So how do we inhabit our sexuality in a way that brings honor to God? And what exactly is sexuality? Is it just sexual intercourse? Or is it perhaps something much greater?

    God created them male and female. From the moment of our conception, we are born in this act of creation as a sexual being. God’s creation was the work of a master artist. It is vital that we discover both the artwork and the artist. God intended for sex to be a wonderful good. When someone allows God to guide them in how they engage in sex, it can be.

    However, sometimes sexuality has become a source of shame, guilt, pain, confusion, frustration, and sorrow. Sexual challenges can come from the choices we make, from the things that others do against us, and from the ways in which Satan has inundated the world with a tsunami of destructive words and images about sex. Those challenges can also come from the lack of being able to talk openly about sex. Perhaps you want to lead a life of sexual purity but you are finding it hard to find solid, biblical answers to some of the very real questions you have. You may feel like you’ve tried to bring up these things with those involved in your life but that you often receive the same-old trite and empty arguments about purity: “Just wait” or “Just repent” or “God has a plan. Be patient.”

    So how do we reconcile God’s intricate and amazing plan for sex with the devastation, destruction, and frustration that sex outside of His plan can cause? How can we pursue purity and honor sexuality at the same time? What exactly is God’s plan for sexuality for those who are not married?

    Redeeming Sexuality answers many of these and other questions that singles, teens, and parents ask the authors in their conferences and sessions, including:
    *What is God’s plan for sex?
    *How should single, working professionals, college students, teens, and all other unmarried individuals understand their sexuality in light of God’s plan?
    *What is allowed and how far is too far?
    *How can we have healthy, intimate connections with others?
    *What is purity and how do we deal with temptation when it is so hard to escape?
    *How do we work through the damage and pain that is already done?
    *How can parents effectively communicate with their kids about sex? This comprehensive guide strives to bring clarity and understanding to topics

A review of the research will show that, while there are some genetic or biological factors that correlate with a higher incidence of same-sex attraction and homosexual behavior, as of yet there is no proof of genetic or biological causation for homosexuality.

    Additional Info
    Sexual brokenness permeates our culture and has found its way into the church. Even though Christians are called to value and celebrate sexuality as sacred and good, it is often a source of fear, shame, or secret sin.

    But it doesn’t have to be that way.

    Healthy sexuality concerns what we pursue, not just what we avoid, so Redeemed Sexuality invites emerging adults to seek sexual maturity and discipleship in the context of community. As we experience love, joy, and intimacy with God and others, sexual shame and sin lose their power.

    Integrating theology, psychology, and spiritual formation, participants engage the process of transformation by

    practicing vulnerability
    embracing their identity in Christ
    learning healthy intimacy

    Incorporating peer-to-peer leadership, this field-tested small group curriculum is suitable for use in both men’s or women’s groups. The process is neither linear nor easy, but change is possible because Christ is able. The only question is, Do you want to be healed?

  • Mere Sexuality : Rediscovering The Christian Vision Of Sexuality

    $16.99

    What do Christians believe about human sexuality?

    In Mere Sexuality, author and pastor Todd Wilson presents the historic Christian consensus about human sexuality, the Great Tradition of the church for centuries as taught in each of its major expressions – Orthodox, Catholic, and Protestant. Wilson highlights the stunning shift of opinion on issues of sexuality in the evangelical church and why this break with the historic church is problematic for the future of Christianity. Along the way he provides ordinary believers with an introduction to the historic Christian vision of sexuality, yet does so in conversation with some of the twenty-first century’s leading challenges to this vision.

    In a culture that is deeply confused about human sexuality, Wilson believes it is time for evangelicals to retrieve the historic Christian tradition and biblical teaching on the question of sexuality. Mere Sexuality seeks to guide readers back to the beauty and coherence of this vision of sexuality in the face of an aggressive and all-consuming pagan and secular worldview.

  • Better Story : God Sex And Human Flourishing

    $15.00

    The architects of the sexual revolution won over the popular imagination because they knew the power of story. They drew together radical new ideologies, often complex and hard to grasp, and melded them into the simpler structure of narrative. Crucially, they cast narratives that appealed to the moral instincts of ordinary, decent people.This moral vision overwhelmed the church and silenced its faltering apologists.The author argues that if Christians still believe they have have good news in the sphere of sexual ethics, then two big tasks lie ahead. Our first priority is to work out what has gone so badly wrong, both in our understanding and application of what the Bible teaches and the way we have presented our case to the non-churched. And then we must offer a better story, one that fires the imagination with such force that people will say, ‘I want that to be true.’This book offers a confident, biblically rooted moral vision which needs to be shared with prayer and courage.

    Humans are sexual creatures.

    Our sexuality can be a beautiful and mysterious expression of what it means to be human. But it can also become distorted and sinful.

    Perhaps no issue is as urgent for the church today, or confronts it with as many questions, as human sexuality: What does it mean to fulfill God’s will through our sexuality? To what extent should our sexuality define who we are? How can we navigate cultural trends around sexuality while being faithful to Scripture?

    The Center for Pastor Theologians (CPT) seeks to assist pastors in the study and production of biblical and theological scholarship for the theological renewal of the church and the ecclesial renewal of theology. Based on the 2016 annual CPT conference, this volume brings together the reflections of church leaders and academic theologians who seek to answer the urgent questions concerning human sexuality. Contributors engage with Scripture, draw on examples from church history, and delve into current issues in contemporary culture, including embodiment, marriage, homosexuality, pornography, transgenderism, and gender dysphoria.

    Beauty, Order, and Mystery tackles difficult questions with discernment in order to offer a theological vision of faithful human sexuality for the church.

  • Sex And The Single Girl

    $13.99

    A study on sex that goes beyond “just don’t do it.”

    Whereas most sexuality studies for singles focus solely on purity-simply offering a “don’t do it” or “just wait” message-Sex and the Single Girl presents a broader understanding of what it means to honor God with our sexuality. This resource will equip single women to understand their sexuality, trust the Lord for redemption and healing, and stand against the cultural trends that marginalize and compromise sexuality.

    Juli Slattery, a clinical psychologist and cofounder of Authentic Intimacy, has devoted the last five years of her life to equipping women with God’s truth about sexuality. Here she drives home the truth that every sexual choice is also a spiritual choice. The six-week study is broken down into five days for each week, prompting study and reflection. The weeks cover:
    *Why Sexuality Matters: Shows the connection between spirituality and sexuality
    *Embracing a Grand Design: Explores God’s design and the beauty of living according to His wisdom.
    *Sexuality and Your Character: Helps women think through how their sexuality is part of their worship and Christian identity.
    *Sexual Boundaries: A very practical chapter providing a biblical grid for matters like masturbation, oral sex, and how far is too far to go in a dating relationship.
    *Battling Temptation: Takes a peak at “the enemy’s playbook” to help women anticipate, prepare for, and stand against sexual temptation.
    *Restoring Intimacy with God: Shows how God can tear down the wall of sexual sin, shame, and confusion through forgiveness and redemption.

    This study has been tested through pilot groups with college women and other 20 somethings. Revised according to their feedback, it is primed and ready to help any single woman think biblically about sexuality, live accordingly, and experience the joy and freedom of doing so.

    This study is especially relevant today. One of the greatest threats to the modern church and emerging adults is the distortion of sexual design. Study after study has documented the proliferation of porn use (among both men and women), sexual exploitation on college campuses, experimentation with homosexuality and bi-sexuality, and the acceptability of multiple sexual partners. The average single Christian has received very little teaching on the purpose of sexuality, and a simple “Just wait until you’re married” approach won’t cut it. Christian singles need to be equipped with a biblical worldv

    In an age where neither society nor the church knows what to do with gay Christians, Greg Coles tells his own story. Let’s make a deal, you and me. Let’s make promises to each other. I promise to tell you my story. The whole story. I’ll tell you about a boy in love with Jesus who, at the fateful onset of puberty, realized his sexual attractions were persistently and exclusively for other guys. I’ll tell you how I lay on my bed in the middle of the night and whispered to myself the words I’ve whispered a thousand times since: “I’m gay.” I’ll show you the world through my eyes. I’ll tell you what it’s like to belong nowhere. To know that much of my Christian family will forever consider me unnatural, dangerous, because of something that feels as involuntary as my eye color. And to know that much of the LGBTQ community that shares my experience as a sexual minority will disagree with the way I’ve chosen to interpret the call of Jesus, believing I’ve bought into a tragic, archaic ritual of self-hatred. But I promise my story won’t all be sadness and loneliness and struggle. I’ll tell you good things too, hopeful things, funny things, like the time I accidentally came out to my best friend during his bachelor party. I’ll tell you what it felt like the first time someone looked me in the eyes and said, “You are not a mistake.” I’ll tell you that joy and sorrow are not opposites, that my life has never been more beautiful than when it was most broken hearted. If you’ll listen, I promise I’ll tell you everything, and you can decide for yourself what you want to believe about me.

  • Thinking About Sex

    $14.00

    “Very many people, including not a few Christians, do not find the Christian tradition very helpful for making sense of sex. It is not that people willfully forsake a demanding sexual ethic for a more easygoing worldly one. It is that they often cannot see the point of its ‘demandingness.'”

    Thus begins author Adrian Thatcher’s project of laying out an unashamedly and wholeheartedly liberal approach to sex and sexuality. Fully aware that for some the word liberal has taken on negative connotations, Thatcher builds on a liberalism in which individuals are encouraged to make up their minds about what faith is and how they are to apply it to their own lives, recognizing that within the boundaries of faith there is much scope for variety in individual belief and practice.

    Using familiar theological ideas, biblical passages, and Christian doctrines, Thatcher sets out to place them intelligibly in a twenty-first-century context. Subjects covered include desire, bodies, sexual difference, marriage, spirituality, and sexualities.

  • Living In A Gray World

    $16.99

    In today’s world, the topic of homosexuality seems to be part of everyday conversation in the media, in politics, and even inside churches, with pressure to accept one view or the other. And if you’re a Christian teen, there seems to be few easy answers to the issues you regularly encounter, such as: Can you be friends with someone who is gay? What if your sister is a lesbian, or you sometimes wonder if you might be as well? Does the Bible really say homosexuality is wrong? What does God want us to do and say? Preston Sprinkle has encountered these same questions, and as a theologian and a college professor he has dealt with these issues firsthand. Through honest conversation, real-life examples, and biblical research, Sprinkle unpacks what we can know to be true, and how Scripture’s overall message to us today allows us to move forward and find answers that align with God’s intent.

    Few topics are more contested today than gender identity. In the fog of the culture war, complex issues like gender dysphoria are reduced to slogans and sound bites. And while the war rages over language, institutions and political allegiances, transgender individuals are the ones who end up being the casualties. Mark Yarhouse, an expert in sexual identity and therapy, challenges the church to rise above the political hostilities and listen to people’s stories. In Understanding Gender Dysphoria, Yarhouse offers a Christian perspective on transgender issues that eschews simplistic answers and appreciates the psychological and theological complexity. The result is a book that engages the latest research while remaining pastorally sensitive to the experiences of each person. In the midst of a tense political climate, Yarhouse calls Christians to come alongside those on the margins and stand with them as they resolve their questions and concerns about gender identity. Understanding Gender Dysphoria is the book we need to navigate these stormy cultural waters.

  • Faithful : A Theology Of Sex

    $11.99

    Many believers accept traditional Christian sexual morality but have very little idea why it matters for the Christian life. In Faithful, author Beth Felker Jones sketches a theology of sexuality that demonstrates sex is not about legalistic morals with no basis in reality but rather about the God who is faithful to us. In Hosea 2:19-20 God says to Israel, “I will take you for my wife forever; I will take you for my wife in righteousness and in justice, in steadfast love, and in mercy. I will take you for my wife in faithfulness; and you shall know the Lord.” This short book explores the goodness of sexuality as created and redeemed, and it suggests ways to navigate the difficulties of living in a world in which sexuality, like everything else, suffers the effects of the fall. As part of Zondervan’s Ordinary Theology series, Faithful takes a deeper look at a subject Christians talk about often but not always thoughtfully. This short, insightful reflection explores the deeper significance of the body and sexuality.

  • No Trespassing : Im Gods Property

    $14.99

    This book contains transforming truths every young woman should know about her sexuality, her worth, and her God-given destiny.

    Let’s talk about sex. We might as well talk about it, because it’s everywhere. Our culture continually bombards us with its way for sex in movies, television shows, music, magazines, and other media. But do you know that God has a way for sex, too? In fact, He created sex-it was His great idea! In No Trespassing: I’m God’s Property, Leah Holder proposes that God’s way is the best way. Leah first explains why we should follow God’s rules for sex. In addition to faith-based reasons, she highlights practical reasons, such as sexually transmitted diseases, unplanned pregnancies, and mental health issues. Then, Leah answers the next big question: How? Is it even possible to follow God’s way for sex when so many people don’t? With clarity, transparency, and humor, Leah presents Biblical truths and personal testimonies regarding how we can be sexually pure within this sex-crazy world. No Trespassing contains three brief sections-mind, body, and heart. Within them, Leah provides practical tips to guide us on our journeys to sexual purity. If we’re already on the sexually-pure path, we’ll be encouraged to remain on it. If we’ve departed from the sexually-pure path, or if we’ve never been on it, we’ll be reminded of God’s love and forgiveness, and we’ll be directed to the way to purity. Out of her love for God, others, and herself, Leah Holder has committed to live sexually pure. Although she falls far short of perfection, the Lord has enabled her to live in consistent victory over sexual sin. The advice she provides in No Trespassing isn’t based on a theory she heard about but on a reality she lives! After reading No Trespassing, Leah hopes you will experience the victory and freedom that she enjoys. Many young women experience the devastating effects of sexual activity outside of marriage. These include guilt, shame, unplanned pregnancies, family problems, and even legal and medical issues. This book addresses the root of these issues and offers encouragement and solutions. It urges young women to protect their minds, bodies, and hearts, and it contains Biblical truths, personal testimonies, and practical tips to help them do so.

  • More Than Just The Talk

    $16.00

    In a sex-saturated culture where kids are exposed to nearly 14,000 sexual references per year on television, and 70 percent of teenagers have encountered pornography on the Internet, parents can’t rely on the traditional one-time “sex talk” that their own parents muddled through. Kids need to know that it’s natural to be curious about sex and that their parents are the most reliable source of information. Otherwise, their friends and smartphones will be more than willing to give answers that are likely to lead them down the path to sin and heartache.

    Jonathan McKee shows parents how to move beyond the initial awkwardness of this subject into an ongoing conversation with their kids about God’s amazing gift of sex. He equips them to engage in open conversations about dating, temptation, porn, and purity. Parents will find answers to the tough questions most people avoid and relevant Scripture regarding sexual issues. When parents provide the honest answers their kids are longing for, they can become the ones their kids turn to with their questions about this critical topic.

    One in five Christian women use pornography. One in three visitors to a porn site is a woman. Many, many more women read explicit books like Fifty Shades of Grey. Even more than that write their own pornography – not on paper for publication, but in their heads for their own use.
    Helen Thorne knows all this because she’s done it.
    But no one talks about it. Our churches are silent on it. There are very few books about it. It is the unspoken struggle of thousands of Christian women – perhaps you, and probably someone you know.
    But no more. In this refreshingly honest, resolutely hope-filled and gospel-soaked book, Helen speaks the unspoken. In doing so, she shows how purity is better and more satisfying than fantasy – and that, whoever you are and whatever your struggles, that purity is possible.

  • God Loves Sex

    $17.00

    We live in a sexually mad world where God’s gift of sex has been distorted through pornography, promiscuity, prostitution, abuse, trafficking, and rape. The church’s position on sexual matters has been made clear throughout history: all sexual activity outside the boundaries of Christian marriage is sin. But rarely has the church honestly addressed the true needs of Christians who are struggling with sexual desires they believe to be counter to the Bible. So we hide our struggles and pretend to live above the erotic fray, or else we cozy up to the culture’s redefinition of which sins are acceptable. But what does the Bible really say about sexual desire and sexual intimacy?

    God Loves Sex offers a truly liberating, godly view of holy sensuality by recovering the clear meaning of the Song of Songs as God-sanctioned eroticism. Then it uses that lens to answer questions posed by a fictional new Christian struggling with expectations of sexual purity. It asks provocative questions, such as What does it mean to be both holy and filled with rich sexual desire? and How can our sexual struggles take us deeper into the purposes of God?

    Pairing psychological insight with sound biblical scholarship, Allender and Longman bring it all out into the open, allowing Christians of any age and any marital status to discover sex the way God meant it to be.

    98% of all people who try heterosexuality find that is who they are, while 80% of people who try homosexuality go on to conclude that that is not who they are. More people have left homosexuality than have ever remained in it, by far. 2% of the people who are actively homosexual at any point in time experience 80% of all STDs. Statistically, it is healthier to be a chain smoker and a practicing alcoholic than an active homosexual. Statistically, gays are, on average, vastly more promiscuous, vastly less faithful in committed relationships, and account for a vastly greater proportion of the use of under-aged persons in commercial sex, have higher rates of smoking, drug use, and alcohol use. Does This Sound Healthy To You? .”..The evidence is that the great majority of persons who try homosexuality go on to leave it, while this is not at all the case with heterosexuals, which calls into question the innateness of homosexuality. Put differently, the evidence is that most people leave homosexuality behind at some time. There is also substantial evidence that there are common potential causal factors in the childhood histories of adults who identify themselves as homosexual, which suggests that such factors may well have caused homosexual ideation…. It is not only my belief that much contemporary conventional wisdom is based upon casual assertion and little evidence, but also that the truth can be known and that in the knowing of that truth there may be freedom for many who now suffer, many knowingly, others unknowingly. I do believe that truth can set us free. I ask you to pursue truth with me.

    Sex is one of creation’s best gift to humanity. It is one gift that is uppermost in every human being’s mind, and yet it is the most violated and abused of the gifts. By it, living beings procreate. By it, the human body can be healed, massaged, or destroyed, depending on how one uses it. In this book, the author shows the reader the spiritual side of sex that can destroy our bodies and lives if not attended to. Sex is not only physical excitement. It is also spiritual infusion and has more consequences than most people think. It is this spiritual side of things that Pastor Kilton Moyo reveals to the reader. This book therefore comes to you at a time when there is so much confusion about sex and sexuality and becomes your guide in finding the Creator’s mind about our sexuality.

  • Sacred Sex : Embracing Your Sexuality As God Designed It

    $6.99

    Sex isn’t everything that the world makes it out to be. It’s more.

    This is a book about sex, for those who think about it. And if we’re honest, that’s everyone. Sex dominates our popular culture to a degree we’ve never seen before. Our world tells us that our sexuality is ours to do with as we please. Perhaps you’ve heard the phrase YOLO – You Only Live Once! We’re meant to believe that since we only have one life, we should do whatever it is that we want with that life. But if we only have one of something, shouldn’t that mean that we treat it with care and use it as it was designed to be used? God tells us that our sexuality is valuable and needs to be treated as such. The unrestricted sex of our culture is only a shortcut to personal fulfillment and, sadly, a cheapened imitation of the real thing.

    Pastor Tony Evans refuses to let the voice of God be drowned out amidst the clamor of the crowd. Crafting an argument that draws on everything from the basic science of hormones to the original Hebrew language used in the Bible to describe sex, you will discover why your sexuality is so important and why misusing it can be devastating.

    Whether you are single or married, discover how to enjoy true intimacy – the real fulfillment and satisfaction that God intended.

  • Good Sex : A Christian And A Pagan Discuss Sexual Ethics

    $24.00

    Wipf And Stock Publishing
    Good Sex presents sexual ethics in the light of faith. Speaking on behalf of Christianity, Buss describes “love your neighbor as yourself” as the only Christian “rule”; it is a positive rule rather than one that focuses on prohibitions. Since this call is never fulfilled in practice, it is joined by forgiveness for oneself and others. More concrete guidelines need to be aided by “wisdom” which is not specifically Christian. Detailed biblical support is provided at the end. Stipe, a contemporary Pagan, advocates respect for all living things and doing no harm as a minimal ethical guide, leaving positive prescriptions to individual judgment. Buss and Stipe discuss details of sexual ethics in largely positive terms-what is good to do-but also with a concern for problems that should be avoided. They agree in many practical matters, just as Christians and Pagans did many years ago, before sexual equality became an ideal. They discuss various kinds of sex, including seeing and being seen, touching, masturbation, and penetration; different sexual identities; committed and uncommitted relationships, including the advisability of extended relations; having and raising children; abortion; and sensuous awareness in a spiritual setting.

    This book invites reflection on sexual relationships within a broad theological framework
    marked by creation, fall, and redemption. These classical hallmarks of Christian faith are
    proclaimed and enacted at every liturgical celebration of the Eucharist, which offers a
    compelling way to engage the link between sexual intimacy and the longing for God, or
    the hoped-for promise of “divine communion.”

    Sex is a big deal. And in our postmodern, post-Christian culture, Christians are feeling the pressure to ditch their traditional beliefs and conform to society’s evolving views on sexuality and gender. Responding to the pressure with conviction and clarity, this book spells out the Bible’s teaching on sex from a biblical perspective, arguing that the ultimate goal of all human sexuality is the glory of God. After outlining key biblical standards and explaining the true purposes for sex (procreation, pleasure, love, etc.), the latter portion of the book explores controversial issues such as homosexuality, the transgender movement, and polygamy. Firmly rooted in the pages of Scripture, this book sets forth a compelling vision of sexuality that is both soul-satisfying and God-glorifying.

  • Sexual Integrity : Balancing Your Passion With Purity

    $4.99

    What happens when the temptation to give in to having sex is stronger than your will to stop? How can you stay pure when overwhelmed by passion? Everyone wants closeness and love, but is joining yourself with someone you’re not married to really giving you the kind of love you long for? This handy mini-book, Sexual Integrity: Balancing Your Passion with Purity, helps you find God’s guidance and strength as you pursue sexual purity.

    Doesn’t he see that, since we live in a different age than when the Bible was written, it’s harder to remain sexually pure? What’s important to remember is that there are several examples of people in the Bible, like David, who suffered greatly because he did not have sexual integrity. Human tendencies are the same, and God is the same now than he was when David had sex with Bathsheba, a woman that was not his wife. It was when David surrendered his plans, his mistakes, and his life to God that he experienced freedom from his sin. Let this Christian mini-book guide your steps to having healthy relationships before marriage. Author June Hunt’s insight and Biblical advice will encourage you to live your life the way God intended so that you can experience sexually intimacy within marriage to the fullest.

    Be equipped with knowledge on:
    *12 Reasons for giving in to sex and how to talk yourself out of it
    *3 subtle seduction “hooks” to avoid
    *5 Bible verses you should know
    *Where to draw the line: How far is too far?
    *The #1 root cause for not maintaining sexual integrity
    *7 myths about sex
    *Sexually transmitted diseases

    You can have God’s power for purity when you trust that his commands will bring you the most joy and satisfaction. It’s hard to abstain from sexual intimacy, but it is worth it.

    Hope for Those Who
    Are Trapped by Guilt

    Though God wants you to wait to have sex within the covenant of marriage, there is forgiveness if you’ve crossed the line. Sexual Integrity will help you know how and what to pray and what Scripture to memorize to help you have the assurance that God offers grace to all who love him. God can empower you to have victory over the past.

    This work of constructive theology examines human sexuality in light of Christian faith and doctrine. Jensen moves beyond the hot-button social debates about sexual orientation and sexual practices to look for healing. The seven chapters consider Scripture and sex; the connections between the triune, covenantal God and human sexuality; Christ’s incarnation and resurrection as affirming the beauty of flesh; eschatology and sexual identity; the ramifications of the Lord’s Supper for human sexuality; vocation and Christian callings to marriage, celibacy, and singleness; and sexual ethics.

  • Adam And Eve After The Pill

    $16.95

    Secular and religious thinkers agree: the sexual revolution is one of the most important milestones in human history. Perhaps nothing has changed life for so many, so fast, as the severing of sex and procreation. But what has been the result?

    This ground-breaking book by noted essayist and author Mary Eberstadt contends that sexual freedom has paradoxically produced widespread discontent. Drawing on sociologists Pitirim Sorokin, Carle Zimmerman, and others; philosopher G.E.M. Anscombe and novelist Tom Wolfe; and a host of feminists, food writers, musicians, and other voices from across today’s popular culture, Eberstadt makes her contrarian case with an impressive array of evidence. Her chapters range across academic disciplines and include supporting evidence from contemporary literature and music, women’s studies, college memoirs, dietary guides, advertisements, television shows, and films.

    Adam and Eve after the Pill examines as no book has before the seismic social changes caused by the sexual revolution. In examining human behavior in the post-liberation world, Eberstadt provocatively asks: Is food the new sex? Is pornography the new tobacco?

    Adam and Eve after the Pill will change the way readers view the paradoxical impact of the sexual revolution on ideas, morals, and humanity itself.

  • Fantasy Fallacy : Exposing The Deeper Meaning Behind Sexual Thoughts

    $15.99

    Sexual and emotional fantasies tend to reveal certain areas of trauma, brokenness, and disillusionment that are yet to be healed.

    Many people, including Christians, look to their sexual and emotional fantasies as a road map to where they can find the fulfillment they long for. However these fantasies aren’t a reliable road map into the future, they are actually a rocky road map from the past.

    Shannon Ethridge, best-selling Christian author, certified life coach, and advocate for healthy sexuality offers fascinating insights into common sexual thoughts such as:
    *dating a much older man or much younger woman
    *connecting with strangers via cyberspace
    *gay and lesbian fantasies
    *fascination with pleasure, pain, and power

    Introduced in Genesis, God’s design for sex, beyond procreation, is to offer connection and pleasure for marriage partners. But also in Genesis is an outline of seven sexual fallacies that bring discord, pain, and brokenness. The Fantasy Fallacy helps explain the basis for these fallacies and offers insights to help expose not only the meaning behind them, but ways to face them, heal from them, and find physical, emotional, and spiritual freedom.

  • Joining Forces : Balancing Masculine And Feminine

    $17.00

    Many of us absorbed the rules for being male or female from our families and the culture in which we grew to adulthood. We formed beliefs about a man’s role and a woman’s role based on what we observed and experienced; mostly, those beliefs had to do with what men and woman did rather than who they were. Our ideas about what constitutes “masculine” and “feminine,” by now outdated and inadequate, have led to a precarious imbalance both in our inner lives and in our external lives of relating to men and women. The result? A gender war. In Joining Forces, Jeanie Miley explains that our deeply ingrained gender expectations have created an imbalance in our emotional and spiritual lives and have kept us from becoming our most authentic selves. Joining Forces will help readers discover the masculine and feminine characteristics that connect, unite, and restore us-traits that men and women alike can and do express. By joining our masculine and feminine strengths, we restore our own souls, our creative energies, and our own true, essential natures.

  • Sex Is Sacred

    $10.00

    Sex Is Sacred is an expose on the biblical stories of Genesis by Rev. Dr. Jones, which provides a groundbreaking perspective on the ideology of sex as depicted in the Bible. The purpose of this study is to give freethinking adults an opportunity to reconnect with the Church where they have become increasingly uncomfortable, or simply find a new spirituality. To quote the author, “Young adults are tired of the same old doctrine of Hell, sin, and abstinence.”

    God commanded, “Be fruitful and multiply.” As evidenced by the Ten Commandments, while he had a problem with married persons straying outside marriage, he did not speak to the sex lives of consenting single adults. After all, sex is the source of our existence; therefore, why should it be considered sinful, vile, or dirty?

    Reverend Jones encourages the Church to move forward into the twenty-first century, and not profess religious beliefs that are not in line with the real biblical stories. God did not see sex as a sin against him, then why should the Church?

  • End Of Sexual Identity

    $18.00

    Concepts like “gay” or “straight” are relatively recent developments in human history. We let ourselves be defined by socially constructed notions of sexual identity and sexual orientation, even though these are not distinctly biblical or Christian ways of thinking about sex. Anthropologist Jenell Williams Paris offers a Christian framework for sexuality that accounts for complex postmodern realities. She unpacks how sexual identities are socially constructed in our cultural context, and assesses problems with common cultural and Christian understandings of heterosexuality and homosexuality. Ultimately, linking sexual feelings to human identity leads us to a dead end.

    Avoiding simplistic moral exhortation about sexual behavior, Paris argues that the Christian tradition holds a distinct vision for sexuality without sexual identity categories. The End of Sexual Identity moves beyond culture war impasses to open up new space and vocabulary for conversations with people in diverse communities both inside and outside the church.

  • Spirituality Intimacy And Sexuality

    $9.95

    Spirituality, Intimacy, and Sexuality addresses a long-standing estrangement between spirituality and sexuality. There are books on spirituality and books on sexuality, but these subjects are seldom treated together in a manner that is practical and hopeful. The lack of integration of spirituality and sexuality is a common source of confusion and frustration for many. There are also persons of faith who violate their own core values as a consequence of the lack of a healthy relationship between their spirituality and sexuality. The authors propose that an important part of being an adult graced by God is to be found in the practice of Intimacy (deep friendship) between our spirituality and sexuality. They offer several constituent elements of that intimacy and apply them practically in the context of marriage, celibate vocation, and being single. And they demonstrate, clearly and engagingly, that spirituality and sexuality are God-given, good, and meant to coexist and animate our relationship with God, others and ourselves.

  • Hard Core : Defeating Sexual Temptation With A Superior Satisfaction

    So many-men and women included-are being slaughtered in their struggle with sexual sin. Individual lives, marriages, children, influences for good, ministries of gospel preachers, and entire congregations of the Lord’s people are being seriously impacted. It is commendable for us to sing, “Soldiers of Christ arise.” But if we sing those words, then proceed to ignore where the battle is being lost, the devastation will only continue to grow.

    If we are going to win this battle, we must strike at the root of the problem. We must sound the call for righteous warfare. We must dedicate ourselves to hardcore holiness and fight sexual temptation with a superior satisfaction.

  • Spirituality Of Sex

    $35.00

    For almost 2000 years, people in the West have been taught that sex and spirituality dont mix, that sex is a stumbling block, an obstacle we must overcome if we want to realize our full spiritual potential. For generations, weve been encouraged to deny the importance of the body and sexuality, in the name of religious purity and piety. Weve been made to feel guilty about our sexual needs and desires. As a result, many have turned to secular culture to validate their deep, intuitive sense that the body and sex are good, only to be met with superficial definitions of beauty, pressures to conform to ideal body types, sexual obsessions, and shallow relationships. In The Spirituality of Sex, Michael Schwartzentruber, Lois Huey-Heck, Mary Millerd, and Charlotte Jackson embrace a more holistic possibility. With evocative prose and beautiful images, they add their voices to an ever-growing chorus inviting people to recognize sex and sexuality as inherently sacred as a divine way of being, as a potential window and way to know God. They show the role sexuality and the erotic has played in religion and spirituality from the dawn of human history, to ancient Greece and Rome, to the evolution of the worlds great religions. Following this golden thread, they reveal the presence and power of the erotic in the traditions of the West in the Kabbalah in Judaism, in the poetry of the Sufi mystics in Islam, and even in the writings of the Christian mystics of the Middle Ages as well as in the traditions of the Orient. They realize, too, that spirituality encompasses more than just religious practices and beliefs. Our sense of personal identity; our need for love and intimacy and meaningful relationships; our experience of touch, sight, taste, smell, and sound; our ability to perceive and appreciate beauty; our unbidden experiences of the divine all of these things are part of human spirituality and all of them are inextricably interwoven with our sexuality. In other words, they invite readers to celebrate sex and sexuality as an innate part of our humanity and as a sacred gift that has always been ours to claim and enjoy.

  • Sex And The iWorld

    $24.00

    Politics professor and pastor Dale Kuehne examines current issues pertaining to sexuality and society following the sexual revolution and asks, What kind of world are we creating? Is it a world that is actually harming us more than benefiting us? With an inclusive perspective and a cordial openness to responses from all points of view, Kuehne contrasts the long-established “tWorld,” in which traditional morality reigned, with the present-day “iWorld,” in which the immediate desires of the individual have been deemed paramount. He maintains that both fail to deliver the benefits of the proposed “rWorld,” in which a larger web of healthy and nourishing social relationships are able to provide the most personally fulfilling context for sexuality and relational wellbeing.

    Kuehne surveys popular conclusions about gender and human sexuality drawn from both the natural and social sciences. He then addresses how postmodernity impacts social policy and issues such as sexual orientation, redefinition of the family, and more. Finally, he retells the story of Christianity through the lens of a relational theology, highlighting its implications for marriage, family, civil partnerships, friendship, and sexual boundaries. In concluding, he maintains that satisfying our lifelong quest for fulfillment centers on relational intimacy.

    Sex and the iWorld will be an essential tool for courses on political science, social policy, and Christianity and culture. Most important, the book will help academics, students, church leaders, and laity develop a holistic strategy for engaging wider society about sexual ethics and public policy.

  • Theology Of His Body Theology Of Her Body

    $11.99

    Theology of Her Body and Theology of His Body will feed your teens with liberating answers to their most pressing questions about love and sexuality. These books offer solid, relevant teachings in a language teens understand. But more than just presenting the truth itself, they deliver the tools teens need to achieve the greatness for which they were created.

    This book comes at a critical time, because tragically, many teens have forgotten their calling, or worse, have never heard it. As a result, they don’t know who they are or who and what they are meant to be for one another. This means they often resort to “using” instead of authentically loving others and themselves.

    Theology of Her Body and Theology of His Body are two books in one. Teens are encouraged to not only learn the truth about their own body, but also to discover the beauty of the opposite sex, for it is in seeing the complementarity of the two sexes that one discovers the real meaning of his or her own body. This is the perfect companion to the Theology of the Body for Teens program, and is also ideal for teens new to the Theology of the Body.

    One thing is certain: anyone who reads this book will never look at his/her body, or anybody, in the same way again.

    In these books teens will discover:

    How to live a life that will make them happy and fulfilled.
    That their sexual desires are good and holy and actually designed by God.
    The amazing meaning of their body and that it is very good.
    Their true calling and purpose in life.
    How to be the man or woman of greatness they are destined to be.
    The meaning and power behind the words Beauty, Femininity, Strength and Mission.
    What it means to be created male and female in God’s image of love.
    The ways we have messed up God’s original plan for us and how to fully restore it.
    …And much more!

  • Desire And Deceit

    Are you ready to respond to the most relevant questions of sexuality today?

    Lifetime monogamy is passe. Pornography infiltrates nearly every home. Homosexuality is accepted. Lust has been redefined. The family as an institution is questioned.

    We are reminded every day that assumptions about what is right and wrong, sexually, are different today than they were fifty-or even ten-years ago. Christian principles that formed the pattern for generations of American families are conspicuously absent. What happened and why? How do we respond to the dramatic shift in our culture’s perspective on sex?

    As one of today’s most influential thinkers, Dr. Albert Mohler addresses these critical topics in a thoughtful, cut-to-the-chase style in Desire and Deceit. As you follow Mohler’s guidance in applying biblical solutions to today’s most highly charged issues, you will be not only equipped but also inspired to speak the truth in a society hungry for answers.

  • Sex And The Single Savior

    $35.00

    Probing into numerous questions about gender and sexuality, Dale Martin delves into the biblical texts anew and unearths surprising findings. Avoiding preconceptions about ancient sexuality, he explores the ethics of desire and marriage and pays careful attention to the original meanings of words, especially those used as evidence of Paul’s opposition to homosexuality. For example, after a remarkably faithful reading of the scriptural texts, Martin concludes that our contemporary obsession with marriage-and the whole search for the “right” sexual relationships-is antithetical to the message of the gospel. In all of these essays, however, Martin argues for engaging Scripture in a way that goes beyond the standard historical-critical questions and the assumptions of textual agency in order to find a faith that has no foundations other than Jesus Christ.
