Truth sets people free; lies keep them bound. One deceptive web Satan spins to capture today’s Christians is a sexualized body. This falsehood traps multitudes in the devastating social evils of pornography, sex addictions, body-shame issues and a growing array of sexual excesses, aberrancies and abuses. For years, many pulpits zealously communicated this sex-focus, sanctimoniously translating it as a “holy” body shame. Such preaching tragically confirmed society’s sexual objectification of our bodies, which were meant to be temples of the Holy Spirit. Such false language has only reinforced our wayward culture’s sexualized treatment of God’s embodied image. My prayerful hope is that this novel’s presentation of the naked truth will help God’s people abandon the unwholesome, sexually-obsessed religious lie they grew up with and to adopt the emancipating truth of a godly, Creator-honoring, mature and healthy body acceptance.
Antiquity offers a fatal blow to the wall in David's mind that keeps his experiences of hospital nudity from confronting the taboos of his upbringing. When that wall topples, he gains a new perspective on life in Bible times, a deeper theological appreciation of human embodiment, and a pricked conscience about the root cause of our culture's obsession with pornography.
Join David, as he unlearns deceptions as old as Eden, relearns truths as relevant as our children's future, and faces the test of his transformed thinking by the challenge of four skinny-dipping Bible college students.

This is my fourth book of poetry, but the first published digitally. These poems were written between 2000-2012. The latter half of those years brought me into a heightened awareness of the awesome gift and sacred goodness in our human embodiment. This theme marks many poems from that period.
As always, for me composing poetry has been like preaching prophetic burdens. As with sermons, I learn more in putting them together than the pulpit ever conveys. So, in sending forth this poetic collection of insights and epiphanies, I can only hope the Holy Spirit uses them to inspire and enlighten my readers as He has blessed their author through writing them.
