    What does love really mean?


    "Love is a noun and a verb."
    "'Love' is a junk drawer we dump all sorts of ideas into, just because we don't have anywhere else to put them. Example, I 'love' God, I 'love' fish tacos. See the problem?"


    John Mark Comer has a way to reach the human heart and mind. Some might find some of the things he says as crass (example would be when talking about the desire for porn he says "jacking off"), but honestly, he is using lingo that many people use in every day talk.


    He helps us see what love is. From God coming to Earth as a human, to gay relationships. And everything else in between during a relationship about a man and his wife. They are your friend, partner, and lover.


    I love when "Christian" authors aren't afraid to talk about sex and marriage and how they are so important and entwined. GOD MADE IT. It's NOT a taboo. After all, Song of Songs is a love poem dedicated to a man and a woman and their romance and desire for each other. I grew up in a home where sex was NOT talked about and was told how 'bad' it really is. I have a very open relationship with a man that has become my best friend and we have a long distance relationship. While we may not have the physical implication between us, we do have very intimate talks about sex. He is the only one that I have felt safe talking about things like that. I don't feel embarrassed. I think that is what God wants for us when we find our mate.


    Also, I love how John Mark talks about singleness as being a gift. I remember for the longest time wanting to get married and have children. I still do, but at the same time, that intense waiting was the WORST! But, the waiting brought a very special man in my life as well a stronger relationship with God.


    This book is for everyone: single, engaged, married, gay/straight. We are all in need of love. And this book reminds us what it is to love and be loved.


    On the down note, the only thing that I had a hard time with was the pink pages with white writing. once my eyes adjusted to it, it was a shock to switch from the pink to a plain page! But over all, this was a very quick read and suggest it to everyone.

    What is the purpose of marriage? Should everyone get married? What does the Bible teach about premarital sex? What does the Bible really teach about homosexuality?
    In the book Loveology, John Mark Comer uses the Bible as a context to answer these and many more questions about God, love, sex, and marriage. This book is an excellent resource for anyone who is looking for answers to these questions and to understand what the Bible has to say. There are even chapters in this book, such as the chapter on homosexuality, that I would encourage non-Christians to read so they can understand where Christians are coming from based on the Bibles teachings.

    Some of the key points of this book are as follows:
    - The Bible teaches that sex is to be shared by a man and a woman in the context of marriage. Any sexual act outside of marriage is considered sin, going against God's will for us. Sex is a bonding of two people at a very deep level, and to have sex outside of the marriage relationship can be very damaging indeed.
    - Any sexual act outside of marriage is a sin. This means heterosexual sex and homosexual acts are sinful outside of the context of marriage. Since marriage as God intended is between a man and a woman, that is why homosexual acts are considered sinful. A person can be gay (attracted to people of the same gender as themselves) and still be a follower of Christ if they abstain from engaging in homosexual acts just as a single person can be a Christian living according to the Bible if they abstain from sex until they are married.
    - Marriage was created for many reasons that John Mark Comer discusses in this book. One of these main reasons is that of the couple working together to help fulfill God's will for each of them. They have to be on the same wavelength and help each other cultivate their gifts to reach God's will for them.

    I wish I understood these teachings more fully before I was in a romantic relationship, but understanding them now helps me to fully grasp how important my marriage is in fulfilling God's will for both myself and my husband as well as for our children. I am going to pass this book on to my husband and suggest that he read it. I also intend on having each of my children read this book when they reach high school age. I think it will give them a much better understanding of why they should wait. Overall, this is a great book. Five stars!

    I recently read Loveology God. Love. Marriage. Sex. And the Neve

    I recently read Loveology God. Love. Marriage. Sex. And the Never Ending Story of Male and Female by John Mark Comer. Loveology is a great read in an auto-biographical way showcases some intimate moments between John Comer and his wife. Comer breaks down what it takes to have a successful relationship into four parts. As a preface to Loveology, Comer speaks about the classic biblical tale of Adam and Eve (one of my favorite passages to read and discuss). As the book continues on, Comer delves into how to make a meaningful relationship through love, marriage, sex, romance and ultimately what makes males and females tick. He uses references and verses from the Bible that many of us have heard numerous times, but have misunderstood regarding our relationship with our spouse and/or mate. Comer incorporates the knowledge that we have, with the verses and clearly states how we can make our love lives with our spouses more significant when the love of Jesus is present.
    Loveolgy is a beautiful book
    Loveology is visually appealing. The font is both clear to read and neatly spaced. There are some pages that utilize a pink background with white words, but are still completely legible. There is nothing obnoxious about the book’s format, but rather inviting and comforting. There are a few verses that are in larger, pink fonts that help set the tone and meaning for the pages ahead. There are a few extras in the book that include an interview with Tammy Comer, John’s wife, and a local professor named Dr. Breshears. There is also a section of proverbs.
