I had to read this book for a marriage class I am taking at university. I am already married and was skeptical about a book with 'chastity' in the title: what could such a book offer me except regret over what I might have done before my own marriage? Surprisingly, a lot. Winner's arguments are thorough. She spends a lot of time discussing not why premarital sex is bad but why marital sex is good, and that perspective shift is significant. Her holistic approach to the topic is refreshing and much needed. I would recommend this book not just for single Christians struggling with chastity, but for married to people to learn about what sex is really about and why it matters. Her discussions particularly about the communal aspect of sex are appropriate and helpful. I say this because when people get married, it's not as though the sexual struggles they had previously just disappear - married people still struggle with sex, too. This book is a good resource, and as this is probably important to some readers: Winner's style and narrative are wonderful. She is engaging and obviously intelligent, but down-to-earth rather than high-brow.

This appears to be a book solely about chastity, but at its core, it's really about the Godly ordering of creation. It's instructive for singles, married couples, and the entire body of Christ. Some bold assertions Winner makes: what happens in peoples' bedrooms is a community issue in that our sex lives form us as much as education does; in baptism, Christians become the body of Christ and the Body of Christ must give us permission to join His body to another body in sex; sexual sin is not in a category alone--it can be removed from us as far as the east is from the west just as God promises about all confessed sin; willpower does not allow us to be chasted, only God's grace does. This book is real, it is fresh, it is instructive, and it is entertaining.

I would recommend this book to both newly converted and lifelong Christians, whether married or single. The writing is clear and candid and solidly Biblical. It challenges the accepted cultural attitudes about sex and relationships without being preachy or condescending, but makes it clear that the world's way is not God's way.
