Book Description



Eye-popping pleasure and soul-to-soul intimacy-that's what God intended for a husband and wife to experience. But because of issues in our past, damaging information from the world, or incomplete teaching from the church, most of us don't enjoy these holy gifts.

Passion Pursuit offers a valuable and sacred journey to joy and freedom. Pursuing passion takes time, intentionality, and creativity. Through the use of Scripture, especially from the Song of Solomon, Passion Pursuit not only urges women to pursue passion but also details how God has given them permission to do so. It reveals the power a woman has to build up or to tear down her marriage and how she can deal with her husband's and her own temptations with empathy and holiness.

This daring ten-week study combines the psychological expertise of Dr. Juli Slattery, formerly of Focus on the Family, along with bestselling author and beloved Bible teacher Linda Dillow. They are from two different generations but share a passion to bring God's truth and healing to women for their marriages and their lives.

Editorial Reviews


So, when I picked this book, I only had the fist part of the title "Passion Pursuit." I thought it would be a simple romance read. I was wrong. While it is a "romance" per se, it was not a cotton candy read at all. This book is about finding Passion in your marriage by using Bible verse. Interesting.

I will admit I did not read all the Bible verses they have you look up, (mostly due to the fact that I use a different version than the one they used) I did find a number of things to think about in regards to my relationship with my husband.

While I cannot recommend this book to everyone I did find it an interesting read.

Review by Mary Murdock, September 24, 2013


Let's face it, a Bible study on this topic is long overdue. Sex and passion in marriage are topics often addressed only on the surface level in our friendships and even in our churches. In Passion Pursuit, Juli and Linda have chosen to dive deeply, answering real women's questions - even the ones we are often too afraid to ask. The combined wisdom and integrity of these two women, coupled with their refusal to avoid even the most intimate issues, will have this resource flying off bookshelves and into the hands and hearts of women who want real passion in their marriage. Every wife, every where, needs to do this Bible study. It will change the most important relationship in your life. - Priscilla Shirer, Bible teacher, author and speaker.

It's about time! This powerful resource is long overdue and incredibly helpful. And who better to do it than Linda Dillow and Juli Slattery. Passion Pursuit is biblically grounded, immeasurably helpful, and desperately needed. You will love it! -Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott,, authors of Love Talk

Juli Slattery and Linda Dillow have joined together to address some of the deepest sexual questions, struggles, and wounds of our era. It is a rare gift to the body of Christ for their remarkable wisdom, depth of experience, and passion for Jesus to be united to offer hope and direction. What they will bring us to enliven our passion and intensify our holiness will be a remarkable kingdom labor.- Dan B. Allender, PhD, Professor of Counseling Psychology and founding president The Seattle School of Theology and Psychology

Passion Pursuit gently yet unapologetically leads Christian women to that most marvelous of places: helping them to care about their sexual relationship as much as God does. Women who go through this fine study will certainly feel themselves drawing not just closer to their husbands, but also closer to God. Not only will they find themselves more pleasing to their husbands and more capable of experiencing greater personal delight themselves, but along the way they will also be led to become more and more like Christ. A marvelous aim, successfully achieved, and brilliantly executed. - Gary Thomas, author of Sacred Marriage and The Sacred Search

Sex is a hot topic. But, for many women sex is uncomfortable, an obligation, or a reminder of past hurts. Linda Dillow and Dr. Juli Slattery encourage women about a subject that is often not discussed.  Passion Pursuit is a Bible study that is relevant, informative and sensitive to the questions that many women want answered but don't know who to ask. Together the authors address the subject with transparency about their own lives, information from research and spiritual application from Scripture. Passion Pursuit is a resource for every woman who wants God's best out of life and marriage! - Debbie Alsdorf, author, A Woman Who Trusts God

This is one of the most important Bible studies a church can offer to married women. Juli and Linda tackle difficult topics with solid truth and a refreshing lightness. The answers the Church has failed to provide about sex and intimacy can be found right here. - Dannah Gresh, best-selling author And The Bride Wore White and Get Lost

You mean Christian women can, do, and should enjoy sex? Whodathunkit? Well, God did-first; but then all sorts of well-meaning experts created a mess with all-things Christian+sex+female+marriage+fun+healthy. As such, it's been difficult to find a book that engagingly couples biblical counsel with wise, funny, relatable, and thoroughly modern discussion-but Linda Dillow and Dr. Juli Slattery have accomplished just that! I highly recommend Passion Pursuit's spiritually saucy pages to every woman of faith. After all, satisfying, fun, and guilt-free sex was God's idea from the very beginning. - Julie Barnhill,  National and International speaker and author of ten books

While the world fixates on sex, the church has remained silent, and this has led to much confusion and pain in the Christian community. Now finally Dr. Juli Slattery and Linda Dillow have boldly stepped out and addressed the issues in a biblical, clear, and courageous way. Passion Pursuit opens the door to much healing, much pleasure, and much clarity on the sexual experience. It offers a more beautiful, passionate, and pleasurable picture for both husband and wife than the world can ever give. It will drastically change marriages and heal broken hearts. I pray every church in America will embrace this study for their women-and do so quickly! - Pat Harley, speaker, teacher,  The Amazing Collection, and President of Big Dream Ministries

Do you long for that spark to return to your marriage, long to see your passions reignited? It's not only possible, it's God's plan and deep desire for you! Linda Dillow and Dr. Juli Slattery have provided a treasure map to help you lay hold of God's best design for passion and intimacy with your husband. You're about to embark on an adventure that will challenge, heal, and establish you beyond your wildest dreams. Don't settle for less than God's absolute best for you. Learn from these dear friends of mine. They are seasoned, wise, women of God. - Susie Larson, author, speaker and radio host

A dynamic duo, Linda Dillow and Juli Slattery team up to show women how to put the sizzle back in their marriages. With transparency, wisdom, and at times, humor, Linda and Juli speak directly to women's hearts about pursuing passion in their marriages. If you don't want your marriage to become boring, this is a must read! - Becky Harling, international speaker and author of Freedom From Performing: Grace in An Applause Driven World

Every married woman needs to study Passion Pursuit. Marriage is foundational to families, children, and the shaping of the next generation of adults. This book inspires, instructs, gives hope and grace plus shows how to embrace marriage wholeheartedly as one of the best works of a woman's life. - Sally Clarkson, conference speaker, blogger, ( and author of 7 books, including Desperate: Hope for the Mom Who Needs to Breathe

Linda and Juli are two wise women who share with candor and grace about true intimacy in marriage. Passion Pursuit will bring up areas in your intimate life that have the potential to lead you to freedom if you are willing to "go there." I highly recommend you read this book with a friend or a mentor so you can discuss, confess, and find healing as you pursue passion in your marriage. - Sarah Mae, co-author of Desperate: Hope for the Mom Who Needs to Breathe

5.0 out of 5 stars worth the time and effort April 12, 2013
I truly thought I had the whole thing figured out after nearly 20 years of marriage, but I was so wrong! This eye opening study brought my attention to so many things I had not really given enough consideration to, especially after so many years of marriage. I had become complacent over time and never really realized that my marriage is not really all about me. The study helped me understand that my husband, although very different from me, has serious needs in our relationship that I hadn't considered before. I had also felt chained to several issues I grew up with, and this study thoughtfully helped me free myself after so many years. My marriage was very good before the study, but going through the DVD series with some close friends helped re-ignite some of the lost passion I knew I had for my husband. The study also helped me see that God is in this with me and that he blesses my married relationship. It was an eye opener and I truly enjoyed every session. It's a must see for even the healthiest of marriages.

I honestly thought going into this that I would see similar material on marriage as I had seen or heard over the years through various sermons, books, or DVD studies. I've been married 20 years and wish I could have known then (20 years ago) what I know now from Passion Pursuit. It has been a wonderful and welcomed surprise to absorb what this series has to offer. It is "real"! It has been meaningful and applicable to me. They deal with just about any issue facing marriage today with solid direction straight from God's Word. The credibility of Linda and Juli along with the combination of information they bring to the table is an incredible resource.

3.0 out of 5 stars Passion Pursuit March 18, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I would classify Passion Pursuit as a study guide for understanding the need to intimacy within marriage. This book is designed to be used in a study group session over a 10-week period. It has numerous scriptures to be looked up and even homework assignments. It challenges you to study what the Bible says about sex and marriage. If you are looking to put the passion back into your marriage, and can't figure out why it left in the first place, then this book is for you. It shows you what the Bible says about forgiveness, romance, temptations, and loving the "gift". Just as the book stated, when we have an opinion, it's just that-an opinion. But when God has an opinion, it's called something else: TRUTH. That is why we must learn what the Bible has to say on all topics and form our thoughts and ideas based on that.

I felt at times, when it came to the really hard questions that women want answered, the authors would just say turn to this scripture or that scripture and just tell you to read it. The authors could've done a better job at hitting those hard questions that everyone wants to know. My guess is they wanted to keep the book light and airy as it may be used in church settings.

Although, I didn't agree with everything in the book, I will say it did answer the question that I have had for a while and that is "God, why did you make men that way?" It will help you to understand men and how they view love, intimacy, and marriage. In the end, it also gave great ideas for "saucing" things up.

Note: "I received a copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of this review."

5.0 out of 5 stars Passion Pursuit: What Kind Of Love Are You Making? September 2, 2013
Every once in a while something comes along that you want to give to all of your friends because you find it to be of such great importance. For me, Passion Pursuit is one of those products.

We live in an age of enormous attacks on our marriages. From billboards to books and movies to music we are led to believe that a passionate love affair involves someone other than our spouse. This isn't true! The grass isn't greener at the neighbor's house . . . perhaps what is lacking is a little fertilizer on our own lawns.

This study is described as "boldly audacious" and I would have to agree. You can find other studies on intimacy in marriage but rarely are they so forthcoming on responses to our most asked questions. In this study you will find answers to the most intimate of questions and resources for you to turn to for more in depth answers.

Sex in marriage can be passionate,erotic, stimulating . . . and holy! One of the most thought provoking statements from the book said that many times we get fixated on becoming the Proverbs 31 woman. Do you realize that her story is limited to one single chapter in the Bible. On the other hand the 'Smokin Hot Mama' from the Song of Solomon gets a whole book. Maybe we've got our priorities a little sideways?!!

A book and DVD were provided to facilitate this review.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
WOW! This study completely changed the way I view sex and intimacy within my marriage. As a newlywed, all I knew about sex was I was suppose to wait until I'm married... but then what? This material helped me get a Biblical understanding of what God thinks about sex, and taught me how crucial it is to a strong Christian marriage. The discussions that it helped me start with my husband have worked as building blocks for our marriage, and has put a spark in our intimacy. If you are a Christian wife trying to figure out what is acceptable in the bedroom, is sex important, how does God view it, and how can I build my marriage- this is where to start!
