From the Back Cover
Television shows promote it, Hollywood glamorizes it, parents ignore it, and churches tolerate it. “It” is sex. And you don’t need the stats about who’s doing it to know that it’s part of your reality.
Our culture says sex is love and love is sex and if you aren’t in on the action, you’re missing out. But this view is really just a cover-up of the truth—having sex before you’re married will hurt you. And we’re not just talking about STD’s. We’re talking about your self-worth, trust, communication, resentment, and your emotional and sexual relationship with your future spouse.
Written from both an informed and practical perspective, The Intimacy Cover-Up is a biblical approach to sex, intimacy, love, and marriage by a family therapist and his twenty-something daughter. It’s time to look at God’s point of view on relationships in a world that’s not interested in uncovering the truth.
“Together [Roger and Karlyn] provide a useful resource for finding a godly balance in developing healthy and intimate relationships without an exclusive emphasis on sex. This is a valuable resource.”
—Grant L. Martin, Ph.D.

My husband and I married in our thirties. We were not Christians in our youth, and everything that implies. So we were a little smug when it was suggested to us that we should receive some counseling in the area of sex before our wedding. It wasn't long after we were married that we discovered that everything we thought we knew about sex and love was wrong. In fact, it only took a couple of weeks. Moreover, it continued to be an issue throughout our marriage. We found out through the school of hard knocks why God strongly prefers that we confine sexual relations to marriage. Both spiritual reasons and "practical" reasons to avoid premarital sex are explored in this book, and I can confidently testify that the authors have told it like it is.
If, by some miracle, you are the sort of person who can learn from someone else's mistakes and do not have to plunge headlong into your own disaster to discover that God's Word is still true in this area, you will save yourself considerable heartache if you will read this book FIRST. But chances are, if you are a young person you will not fall into that category. Parents, read this book and get it into the hands of your Christian teens BEFORE they have a chance to stumble. You might be surprised to learn how susceptible YOUR well-mannered, godly, soul-winning teen is to the siren song of the world.
