Overview

The world today has virtually lost touch with the Creator’s design for human sexuality. The book of Genesis, as the biblical book of beginnings, supplies the kind of healthy understanding of sex needed in our time. One of the fullest treatments of the subject of sex found anywhere, Genesis describes over twenty varieties of sexual relationships. Old Testament scholar O. Palmer Robertson draws from Genesis vital perspectives on romance, the love-triangle, singleness, divorce, unrequited love, adultery, rape, and other matters related to human sexuality.

Editorial Reviews

R. C. Sproul
Drawing from a depth of understanding of Old Testament Scripture, O. Palmer Robertson opens to readers the breadth of God’s design for sexual relationships and the harm that comes from the misuse of this gift. A most insightful book.
William Edgar
Here, the noblest, God-given goals for our maleness and femaleness are brought together with the most frank and down-to-earth discussions of the many challenges of sexuality. Robertson lets the book of Genesis speak for itself, and thereby reveals its inexhaustible wisdom.
