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Christians are increasingly seen as outdated, restrictive and judgmental when it comes to sex before marriage, cohabitation and homosexuality.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.

In this rich and provocative book, Sam Allberry explores how the yearnings of our hearts, the instincts of our bodies, and the complex cravings of our minds point us to something we want even more than sex. You can read it in an evening. But its effects could last a lifetime.

This book is characteristic Sam Allberry: practical and vivid, humorous and clear, faithful and compelling. And remarkably timely. For the Bible’s sexual ethic, rightly understood and embodied, is not just true; it’s also beautiful. And contrary to popular belief, it’s good news for the whole world. Sam shows us why.

Managing editor, The Gospel Coalition; author, Before You Open Your Bible: Nine Heart Postures for Approaching God’s Word

In a day in which very few are trying to answer the question this book asks with biblical clarity, I am grateful for Sam's courage and insight. This book will serve a generation that's either confused or ignorant of why sex matters and what God's good design is all about. This book will help us understand the beauty, protection, and plan that God has put in place.
