From the Back Cover
"It's rare to find a Christian book about sex that is real and helpful and honest. God Loves Sex is all of that and more."--Donald Miller, bestselling author of Blue Like Jazz and A Million Miles in a Thousand Years
The church's stance on sexual matters has been clear throughout history: all sexual activity outside the boundaries of Christian marriage is sin. So we hide our struggles and pretend to live above the erotic fray, or else we embrace the culture's redefinition of what is acceptable. But in this book Allender and Longman explore what the Bible really says about sexual desire and sexual intimacy.
God Loves Sex offers a truly liberating, godly view of holy sensuality by recovering the clear meaning of the Song of Songs as God-sanctioned eroticism. Then it uses that lens to answer questions posed by a fictional new Christian struggling with expectations of sexual purity. It asks provocative questions, such as What does it mean to be both holy and filled with rich sexual desire? and How can our sexual struggles take us deeper into the purposes of God?
Pairing psychological insight with sound biblical scholarship, the authors bring desire and sex out into the open, allowing Christians of any age and any marital status to understand sex the way God meant it to be.
"This is not your average Christian book on sex. This is something better--and it is going to bring clarity, healing, and hope to a lot of people."--John Eldredge, author of Wild at Heart
"I have always loved the Song of Songs, but this book gives me a rich picture of how it can help us to something deeper in our marriage. So healing!"--Stasi Eldredge, author of Captivating and Becoming Myself
"In a world where sex most often lives in confusion, perversion, compulsion, guilt, and shame, it is wonderful that Allender and Longman use the Bible's sex song to restore sex to its original created beauty."--Paul David Tripp, author of Sex & Money

It is worth your time to read this book. You and your spouse have so much to learn and gain from this book.
The only negative, and it isn't about the book at all is that I recently acquired a Kindle Fire HDX, and though the book has Text To Speech enabled (both by the publisher and on my device), it doesn't work. Other books that are shared on our family plan work fine. Not this one. It does play on my son's Fire HD6. So, the negative is that there is a problem with the system, where I don't know.
