Sanctified Sexuality: Valuing Sex in an Oversexed World (Paperback)
God created humans as sexual beings before pronouncing his creation very good. And while we continue to witness many cultural changes relating to sex and gender, one thing that remains unchanged and timeless is the foundation for sexual intimacy--God's beautiful design for the flourishing of those created in his image. Editors Sandra L. Glahn and C. Gary Barnes bring together twenty-two expert contributors in the fields of biblical studies, theology, and psychology to address the most important and controversial areas of sexuality that Christians face today. From a scriptural perspective, the contributors address issues such as:
- Male and female in the Genesis creation accounts
- Sexuality in marriage
- Divorce and remarriage
- Same-sex attraction
- Gender dysphoria
- The theology of the human body
"Sanctified Sexuality meets the onslaught of nuanced sexual issues emerging in the church today with clarity, kindness, and depth of expertise. The plurality of voices serve as a trustworthy guide for those hoping to avoid breaking bruised reeds."
--Nika Spaulding, resident theologian at St. Jude Oak Cliff.
