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
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.About the Authors
