Description

In a sex-saturated culture where anything goes, it’s tempting to think that the Christian vision for sex seems dull, uninspiring and just plain weird!

Join author Jason Roach as he reflects on how he discovered a different way of looking at sex, relationships and love. He found the true intimacy he was craving in God’s perfect design for sex and sexuality and you can too.

Discover a better story than the one our culture tells, a story where respect, generosity and care for others abound and relationships can flourish. Trade insecurity for confidence, anxiety for freedom and stress for happiness as you enjoy who God has made you to be and live in the way He intends.

Commendations

This book is sane, funny, honest, powerful and moving in equal measure. Jason Roach does a marvellous job in presenting the Bible’s beautiful vision for sexuality in our broken world in a way that is utterly realistic and completely recognizable. Both sensitive and courageous, no-one - married or single, Chistian or non-Christian, could read ’Swipe Up' without laughing, rethinking and even shedding a tear. Read it, talk about, pass it on!

Jason helpfully gives us biblical truth and pastoral wisdom, wrapped up in a deeply honest and personal narrative. Rather than confront, he gently persuaded us that God offers a better way of navigating the pitfalls of modern romance and relationships

As a single guy, Swipe Up helps to cut through the complication of dating and relationships in 2019 and shines a light on the joy a loving God has for us.
- Matt, 25
 
Personable and genuine, Jason understands the reality of living as a young adult today. Through his own story and struggles he shows how living faithfully committed to God's design is not only plausible and practical, but 'an honor we can never abandon'.
- Hannah, 23
 
Jason helps us understand why no earthly relationship comes close to fulfilling our desires for intimacy, security or purpose in the way that a relationship with God through Christ does. Do read if you’re wanting to ground your relationship choices within a solid biblical framework.
- Tim, 37
 
I've ordered 20 for our youth group—not only does it shine a light on romantic relationships but it brilliantly handles, singleness, friendship, the blessing of the church, and how all human love is rooted in who our great God of love has made us to be.
- Nick, youth worker
 
Swipe Up concisely conveys biblical wisdom and real-life insight. Recommended.
- Nathanel, 30
 
A brilliantly honest and refreshingly open book, bringing a modern twist to God's love story with us. Roach clearly depicts the beauty and intimacy that singleness can hold.
- Amy, 24

Jason’s honesty is a real blessing in Swipe Up. He meets you where you are, in whatever scenario! This book has encouraged me that it’s not wrong to feel, gently demonstrating that God has created us as relational people for a reason - to point to his infinite love for us!
- Milly, 26

Comments from readers

Customer reviews

“Honest, compassionate and relevant”

(Review written for 'Swipe Up')

This wonderful little book gets us to the heart of what it means to be God’s dearly loved children, and how this “better story” helps us to navigate our relationships with others. Jason writes with honesty and compassion and gave me a clearer view of my past, present and future in the light of the glorious gospel of God’s lavish love for us. The story-telling nature of the book is perfect for a story-loving culture in which relationships are all over the place. I highly recommend you read this and then pass it on.
