When I first saw the book title, I thought, “At last a book to teach young people about sex from a biblical perspective.” Upon beginning to read the book I found the questions to be very straightforward. Ones that a youth would ask, and maybe not have the courage to ask but wonder about. God’s plan and guidelines for sex are being brazenly disregarded today by youth and adults alike. For many it is the fact of simply not knowing what God’s word says. A appreciate the author covering what some young people consider a “gray area” in sexual conduct. Yet is God’s eyes there are no gray areas concerning purity, it is only black and white. While the author did include scriptural references, I felt there could be far more. And as Scripture is our foundation for all things I find this very important. I understood that the book would be somewhat graphic, but I felt it was more so than needed. We can share details without stepping over the line and making it unsuitable. Many parts of the book seem to be using reasoning rather than God’s Word to encourage youth to do what is right. For example, I do not think a young woman needs to know that she will have better orgasms after marriage if she is a virgin when she weds. The discussion questions at the end were very good to further talk with your child. I forewarn you to read it before you give it to your teen. This book is not what I had hoped it would be. I received this book for free from Bethany House Publishers for this review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”

*I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review. Sex Matters is a companion book to More Than Just a Talk also by Jonathan McKee. The purpose is to answers questions that may have arisen from his More Than Just a Talk book and expound more what was discussed in More Than Just a Talk. I found this book to be very helpful in light of his first book on the subject. It is a really short book but answers the most popular questions and gives Biblical answers to those questions. While intended for parents, I feel that anyone can benefit from the information in this book and its companion book.
