Overview

embrace the God-given gift of sexuality?

become free and stay free from sexual idols?

be comfortable in your own body?

love and value others, both in singleness and marriage?

Help is here. Jesus sees our bodies as temples, houses where he wants to live. And no matter what we've done sexually or what's been done to us, he can reclaim us and make us his own. Whole. Healed. Pure.

Andy Comiskey has walked the long road of sexual brokenness and pain and emerged a new creation in Christ, healed from the past."God cares about what goes on in the temple," Andy writes."He created the body and sexuality for holy purposes. His destiny for humanity involves our bodies!" What's more, God cares about you and your body, and he has healing for you through Jesus and through the body of Christ.

Editorial Reviews

Christopher West
"Naked Surrender helps us apply the simple truths of crucifixion unto resurrection into our sexual lives, inspiring us all to sexual wholeness in Christ. In the process, Comiskey demonstrates the vital connection between the truth of the gospel and a true understanding of sexuality; conversely, he shows how a false understanding of sexuality results in a distorted gospel."
Father - John F. Harvey
"Andrew Comiskey has based his life upon the truth of God and love for humanity. In his book, Comiskey traces the forms of human love which are rooted in God from all eternity: good marriages, love of children, and sacrifice for family and church."Naked Surrender inspires us on to that spirit of sacrifice; it expresses in numerous ways how loving God and neighbor establishes the backbone of whole sexuality. Comiskey combines sound psychological insight with solid theology. I highly recommend this book for any Christian in serious pursuit of sexual integrity."
Alan Chambers
"Whenever Andy writes he beautifully communicates the heart of God. Naked Surrender is no exception. I am grateful I was encouraged to read it and thrilled to recommend it to others looking to understand the point of this life."
Juan Francisco Martinez
"We live in the midst of an oversexed society where sexual ethics are often defined by narcissism and a worship of 'sexual freedom.' Naked Surrender invites us to recognize that our sexual identity finds its fulfillment as we submit to the lordship of Jesus Christ. Andrew Comiskey uses concrete examples to challenge us to understand the complexities of sexual brokenness and to develop communities of mutual support so that we can develop healthy relationships that help us become who God created us to be. Through repentance, prayer and mutual support the author shows us how real people have found sexual wholeness in Jesus Christ."
