Overview

What is healthy sexuality for a Christian? This book approaches some of the more difficult-to-discuss areas of human sexuality.

  • The human need for sexual fulfillment
  • Singles and sexual fulfillment
  • Sexual fulfillment in marriage
  • Heterosexual marriage
  • Same sex relationships
  • Sexual fulfillment in the elder years

The authors distinguish between "life-giving sex" and "life-degrading sex" by establishing four criteria for a healthy relationship: mutual love, mutual respect, mutual openness, and mutual faithfulness. They then discuss healthy sexuality in a variety of life stages and relationships. With a compassionate tone, the authors explore the issues Christian people face with respect to the experience and expression of their sexuality.
