Praise for The Truth About Sex

“Can a book about sex convict you and at the same time liberate you? Can it instruct you while encouraging you? Can it help you contain your thought life while increasing your imagination for sex with your partner? Can it help you resolve your past and usher you into a future with deeper and richer levels of intimacy? The Truth About Sex does all of that and more.”
–Stephen Arterburn, coauthor of the Every Man series

“When it comes to the subject of sex, nothing is more needed than a bold, reasoned, and truthful voice. Kay Arthur, in her down-to-brass-tacks yet grace-filled way, is that voice of biblical truth. Read this book for yourself, and give it to teens and singles. They will thank you for it.”
–Dr. Tim Alan Gardner, author of Sacred Sex and The Naked Soul

The Truth About Sex is the most comprehensive treatise I have ever read on the subject of sex from a biblical perspective. For those who endeavor to live a life of sexual integrity this is a must-read!”
–Chris Burge, coauthor of His Rules

“My friend Kay Arthur has done it again: she’s mined Scripture and uncovered a treasure trove of God-planted wisdom and instruction. In The Truth About Sex Kay shows us the warning signs along the path. She shows us the pitfalls of sex outside marriage. And she reminds us of the promises of sex as God intended it to be.”
—Max Lucado, best-selling author and senior minister, Oak Hills Church, San Antonio

Format: Paperback
In the book The Truth About Sex, Kay Arthur addresses many of the misconceptions the world has about sex, by applying God's lessons on the topic as found in Scripture. Whereas the world would paint sex as something functional, mechanical, and without emotional commitments or responsibilities, Arthur argues, "Sex, in its perfect form, brings the intimacy of not only truly belonging to another but longing for the presence of our beloved. It is hallowed purity, the union of a husband and wife that becomes a holy metaphor of the 'wife' God seeks for His Son, of the oneness He longs to have with his people."

Arthur boldly confronts the sexual whimsy of the world. She asserts that when people say they are merely sowing wild oats, they want to live and let live, and they do not want to judge others because of their sexual preferences, in reality they are distorting God's purpose for sex. Using passages from the Bible to contradict these improper attitudes, Arthur offers discussion questions at the end of her chapters so that friends and study groups can discuss these matters at length. An additional study guide at the back of the book provides a course outline.

This book is an excellent resource for people who are dating or are engaged, but it also is an insightful text for those who have been married a long time and wish to be role models or mentors for others. This generation is being bombarded with sexual images on TV, in ads, on the Internet, and in movies; it's good to have a book that provides God's perspective on what should be a righteous expression of love. -- Marsha Boyanowski, Christian Book Previews.com

10 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Amy Davies on August 13, 2007
Format: Paperback
As a single woman, this book has opened my eyes to the film of lies covering them for several years on the topic of sexuality. It hits at the core of the emptiness of cheapened, casual sex and challenges singles to stay pure regardless of stage in life or sexual history. The Scriptural references Arthur provides leave no question of God's view of sexual relationships outside of marriage and also explains God's provisions and sanctions as loving and protective of not only our bodies but psyches, family structure and nations' future. This is an important book for singles and parents whose children will confront the many voices and false teachings in our media and culture. Arthur approaches what many churches today cower away from discussing.

I have had this book for almost a 1 1/2 before I got the courage to pick it up and start reading it. Needless to say, it came just at the right time. Once I picked it up, I couldn't put it down. This book is so important for everyone to read! We are being lied to constantly and exposed to what the Devil tells us. We believe those lies and they are so far from the truth and what God wants us to know and accept and do. Gather the courage and read this book. It will change your life, only for the better!
