A Bible study about sex for women? Now that’s different!
This new study, Passion Pursuit: What Kind of Love Are You Making?, lets God’s Word speak about sex as being holy and erotic, blessed by God, and satisfying far beyond what the world can even imagine. Picture that as a headline on the cover of Cosmopolitan!
By using scripture throughout the Bible, Passion Pursuit not only urges women to pursue passion but details how God has given them permission to do so. Though there is fun to be had along the way in this study, it hits hard on the questions women have but are hesitant to ask, like:
- What does God say is okay and not okay in the bedroom?
- I’m 54 years old; how can my husband still be attracted to me?
- Why did God make men and women so different?
This audaciously bold study combines the psychological expertise of Dr Juli Slattery, formerly of Focus on the Family, along with moving stories from trusted Bible teacher and best-selling author Linda Dillow. The groups who have already done this study have seen their marriages come alive, whether they’ve been married four months or forty years; be next!

A life changing book- these authors are not afraid to tackle hard topics about sex, intimacy, and marriage. This 10 week study completely rocked my marriage. It changed the way I looked at sex and really challenged the way I see my husband and our sex life. Sex is something that God blesses and sees as holy!
Passion Pursuit: What Kind of Love Are You Making? by Linda Dillow and Juli Slattery is a Bible study. Not your everyday Bible study but one to help you put the passion back in your marriage. There is a DVD to go along with the workbook, I only had the workbook so can only give my thoughts on it. The book is designed to be used as a group study, (but can be used alone) lasting ten weeks. Using Bible scriptures and even giving homework. No matter where you are in your marriage, you will find help in improving the intimacy based on Biblical scriptures. The authors help you to see what is forbidden and what is acceptable by God. Showing how to use the Songs of Solomon to help you become a Smoking Hot Mama! Linda and Juli take us through the Bible to show us God's view on passion and intimacy in marriage. An easy an fun read. I received a FREE copy from Moody Publishers in exchange for my honest review be it good or bad. Thank you.
I went through this book quickly for the purpose of this review but I will be going through it again and taking the time to let this study really absorb. There is a lot of good stuff in this study. Linda and Julie don't miss a thing. They cover everything and aren't afraid to talk about sensitive subjects. Subjects that need to be dissected and looked at closely. They ask tough questions that we really need to take the time to answer. You can do this study on your own, especially if you are a bit squeamish talking about this stuff in front of others. Or you can do it as a group. Either way I say do it. Go through this study if you know your love life with your husband isn't all you know God intended it to be. I think you will find encouragement and hope in this study. But you have to go through it to find it. Make this ten week study part of your daily devotions and allow the truth of what God wants you marriage to be to soak deeply into your heart. A copy of this book was given to me by Moody Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
Every once in a while something comes along that you want to give to all of your friends because you find it to be of such great importance. For me, Passion Pursuit is one of those products. We live in an age of enormous attacks on our marriages. From billboards to books and movies to music we are led to believe that a passionate love affair involves someone other than our spouse. This isn't true! The grass isn't greener at the neighbor's house . . . perhaps what is lacking is a little fertilizer on our own lawns. This study is described as "boldly audacious" and I would have to agree. You can find other studies on intimacy in marriage but rarely are they so forthcoming on responses to our most asked questions. In this study you will find answers to the most intimate of questions and resources for you to turn to for more in depth answers. Sex in marriage can be passionate,erotic, stimulating . . . and holy! One of the most thought provoking statements from the book said that many times we get fixated on becoming the Proverbs 31 woman. Do you realize that her story is limited to one single chapter in the Bible. On the other hand the 'Smokin Hot Mama' from the Song of Solomon gets a whole book. Maybe we've got our priorities a little sideways?!! A book and DVD were provided to facilitate this review.
