Book Of The Month For January 2017: Ethics of Sex: From Taboo to Delight
Ethics of Sex: From Taboo to Delight
By Gifford Grobien
2017 / Paperback / 224 Pages
Breaking through the noise of our hyper-sexualized Western culture, Ethics of Sex is a much-needed, masterful compilation that speaks to the nature of Christian sexual ethics as simultaneously positive and prohibitive. Ten distinct yet interrelated essays invite us back to a way of life in harmony with the Lord’s created order, an order that bears fruit in intimacy, compassion, love, and joy.
Embrace the wisdom and counsel of these words, reminding all that Jesus’ love for His Church forgives sexual sin and restores His people to fellowship in the kingdom of heaven—young or old, married or single. Our identity remains in Christ.
Essay topics include:
Male and female sex differences
“Ethics of Sex is a remarkable book. It is biblically faithful, theologically sound, and above all, Christ-centered. While the authors responsibly draw from fields such as science and psychology, they constantly return to the cross, emphasizing themes such as forgiveness, healing, and reconciliation. Christians across denomination lines will appreciate this book for its winsome style, pastoral tone, and Kingdom focus.”
—Dr. David W. Jones, Professor of Christian Ethics, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary
