From the Publisher"The Spirituality of Sex is not a how-to manual so much as a description of the deep meaningfulness that can be found in the spirituality of sex. It is designed to enlighten us about ourselves, to give names to what we feel all the time and do not know quite how to describe. It is about savoring the spiritual flavor of sexual play and sexual union. It is not a book mainly for Christians or Jews, but a book for everyone. It is about the generic human spirituality in each one of us, true believer and atheist alike. It is about being human more fully and with greater satisfaction."
"Recommended. Lower- and upper-level undergraduates; general readers."
"What is life all about? In simple terms, it's a search for meaning. The author, a retired pastor and university professor, contends that our search for meaning happens in both the spiritual and the sexual realms of our living. In fact, he contends the two are intertwined in countless ways. The book is an exploration of that connectedness, and it includes some quite engaging stories of how people go about figuring all that out."

"…this book has value and can be useful to those seeking to deepen their relationships with God and with loved ones. The Spirituality of Sex is part of a larger series on psychology, religion, and spirituality published by Praeger, and it is intended to address the needs of a general audience. It is not a book claiming to offer groundbreaking insights into psychology or theology. Rather, it aims to facilitate the dialogue between these disciplines for those who are neither psychologists nor theologians. This text serves this purpose. It is a thoughtful reflection on the importance of sexuality and spirituality in our lives, recognizing that our needs and desires for sex need not be antagonistic to our yearning for relationship with the transcendent. The Spirituality of Sex helps us to understand why interest in both spirituality and sex seems to be growing in contemporary life, and why it is unwise to pursue one without the other."
