God is at work in these days to reconcile races, cultures and nations-and the sexes. The relationship between the man and the woman was the very first created by God, and it was the first to be corrupted. Now, by His grace, we can experience His redeeming love in our most intimate relationship and answer His call to accomplish the work He intended from the beginning for women and men together.
The Beauty of Intimacy is a Bible study that guides you to discover God's intention for the relationship between men and women. Whether you work through the book with a group or on your own, you will learn what Scripture reveals about God's plan for the sexes and the steps you can take to live in fulfillment of that plan in your marriage, workplace and church. Through eight weeks of study, you'll deepen your knowledge of God's intentions for women and men, dig into the teachings of Scripture and reflect on your relationships. You'll also take practical action steps to apply what you are learning from God's Word to your everyday life. God created you to give and receive trust, care and intimacy. Experience His restoration and live out His design!
