Stowell, President, Cornerstone University, Grand Rapids, Michigan “Jay and Gerald have written a provocative book on one of the most pressing issues of our generation—sexual purity.
As the authors show, few things necessitate getting to the core of the gospel like our soul’s craving for sexual fulfillment.
Few have dared to define and apply the Bible’s understanding of purity in premarital relationships to this degree, but Heistand and Thomas have done it.
If you are single or care about someone who is, you really should read this book.
The result may just be a simpler, more God-honoring approach to dating than you thought possible.”—Kevin De Young, Senior Pastor, Christ Covenant Church, Matthews, North Carolina“In a world of cyber relationships—fueled by Facebook, texts, and tweets—the issues surrounding sex, dating, and relationships have become increasingly complex and challenging for teens, their friends, and their parents.
It is used as the standard measuring stick for all other things “single,” and then proceeds to make a case for why he didn’t go far enough or didn’t get it quite right and why the author’s current work is getting closer to the truth.
In the authors make their case that Harris was close, but they are closer still.
Considering the pervasive immorality and high divorce rate of our contemporary Christian culture, we evidently need a biblically based, theologically compelling, practical understanding of sex, dating, and relationships.
Unlike most books on dating, this one cuts straight to the heart of dating relationships, asserting with confidence that the line must be drawn at “no sexual activity” whatever.
The call to a higher standard of Gospel centered sexual purity in every stage of life was convicting and inspiring.
It takes a lot to intimidate me, but this book came across pretty strong handed.
Considering the pervasive immorality and high divorce rate of our contemporary Christian culture, we evidently need a biblically-based, theologically-compelling, practical understanding of sex, dating, and relationships.
