10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Matthew P. Cochrane on December 28, 2008
Format: Paperback
In the book of Genesis, the first book of the Bible, Moses, under the Holy Spirit's inspiration, relates the beginning of all creation, including mankind. Through all the different stories in Genesis we see many different manifestations of human sexuality, ranging from the good (marriage, romance, companionship, the blessings of children and grandchildren) to the bad (lust, incest, rape, homosexuality, and divorce). O. Palmer Robertson, former Old Testament Theology professor at Reformed Theological Seminary and Knox Theological Seminary and current professor at African Bible College, Malawi, wrote the Genesis of Sex to illustrate how much there is to learn about our sexuality in the opening book of Scripture.

In the Introduction, Robertson states the need for such books on sex: "The world today has lost touch with the concerns of the Almighty Creator in the realm of human sexuality. The whole world of relations between the sexes is viewed as a purely secularistic thing...in the realm of human sexuality modern man may rightly be viewed as a `ship of fools' tossed about on the sea of life's disordered passions." On that count, I could not agree with him more. As I have stated in the past, Christians, especially those in the Reformed tradition, need to start openly discussing and declaring God's plan and guidelines for His gift of sex before our culture and society drowns in the consequences of sexual immorality.

Robertson delves into Genesis, reviewing each account of sex and sexuality. He begins by looking at Genesis 1 and how God designed relationships between man and woman and the different roles they are to play. He goes on from there to categorize the different aspects of sex found throughout Genesis and tackles them in turn, one by one.

Format: Paperback
The subject of human sexuality is nothing new. Although spoken about in silent whispers with past generations, the topic is now considered suitable for public discourse. Great debates rage about the appropriateness of certain behaviors while culture as a whole considers what actions should still be taboo. It seems that sanity on the subject is nowhere to be found. Loud voices argue for acceptance of any and all forms of physical intimacy while shouting down those who continue to cling to the concept of truth and order. With such societal rage, is it possible to find an authoritative voice? Can a real foundation be found in the midst of our culture's demand to solidify one generation's consensus opinion as truth?

Within his book, The Genesis of Sex: Sexual Relationships in the First Book of the Bible, O. Palmer Robertson goes back to the beginning. Starting with the creation of Adam and Eve in the garden, readers are taken on a journey through the first book of the Bible. After looking at the Lord's command for a man and woman to come together in the bonds of holy matrimony, the author chronicles the subsequent fall into sin and its effects on human sexuality. Using the pages of Genesis as a guide, readers are shown that sexual aberrations are nothing new. The content of various chapters cover the consequences and sorrow associated with each deviation from the divine plan. Subjects such as love triangles, adultery, homosexual relationships, mismatched marriages, and unloved partners are covered. As the book comes to a close, readers are invited to find hope in God and His unchanging standard. Though current culture might undermine His purposes, the original plan and beauty of sexual intimacy within the bounds of marriage still stands.

You lost me on the first sentence. Anyone giving Moses credit for writing Genesis probably thinks there is an apple in the Garden. Most Biblical scholars know at least 4 people wrote Genesis. And speaking of Lot and his daughters: trace the genealogy of one of them to Ruth the Moabite, great-grandmother of King David who traces to Joseph/Jesus.
