Description

Sexual intimacy in marriage is a great gift from a good God that cements couples together and brings unity and happiness.

Nevertheless, in our broken and messed-up world we often need help and direction to understand and enjoy what it means to give ourselves to one another, and to overcome some of the difficulties and questions that every Christian husband and wife faces.

Adrian and Celia Reynolds are straightforward and compassionate as they look at Scripture to guide couples in this area. They give five clear biblical principles relating to sex and apply them to the common questions Christian couples ask about intimacy.

We loved reading this book and found it hopeful, optimistic, even liberating! It's written in a disarming and fun style that both challenges and speaks to every marriage, whether newlyweds or old-times like us who are looking forward to applying all this wonderful wisdom about one of our favorite shared activities! We are experiencing a deeper level of communication, resulting in greater holiness, joy and intimacy towards one another.  Thank you for this book!

Adrian and Celia Reynolds have written a little book on a big subject. Over the last two decades as we have invested in our marriage and in Christian ministry we have faced many situations ourselves and many couples around us struggling with the intimacy. We believe that to have this honest, very personal and yet deeply biblical treatment on this much needed topic at hand will help many and will bring blessing and joy to the couples who want to glorify God in every area of their life.

This refreshingly frank book is cleverly written so as to be informative without being embarrassing. Thoroughly Biblical, highly accessible, with principles that will be relevant for couples whatever stage they are at. Fantastic as a resource for marriage prep—or for any marriages looking to explore God’s design for intimacy.”

A gift for those struggling with intimacy!

I am glad that a book like this was written and I am delighted that I read it. I wonder why we don’t have more of such practical books. I really appreciate the authors for their wise treatment of this delicate subject. They are also bold in touching topics that we don’t often talk about in church or fellowship settings.... continue reading

 

An extremely helpful book

Lucy Rycroft, January 16th 2021

The authors helpfully go through five important and oft-asked questions about sex, applying five Biblical principles found in 1 Corinthians 7 to each of these questions. This is a really useful way to go about it, as it teaches readers to apply the Bible themselves, rather than just to take someone else's interpretation.... continue reading

 

A practical guide for thinking biblically about sexual intimacy in marriage

Andy Cassler, January 25th 2020

Ultimately, their goal is to make sex more meaningful to a husband and wife because it’s a proclamation of a deeper truth, reflecting the union between Christ and his church. With this in mind, they provide five principles from 1 Corinthians 7 for Christian couples to help answer questions about sexual intimacy and pursue the “putting on” aspect of sexual sanctification:... continue reading
