Real Sex: The Naked Truth About Chastity
From Publishers Weekly: "Winner, author of the critically acclaimed memoir Girl Meets God, weaves an intriguing tapestry from sociological, autobiographical, pastoral and historical threads."
SEX. Splashed across magazine covers, billboards, and computer screens–sex is casual, aggressive, and absolutely everywhere. And everybody’s doing it, right?
In Real Sex, heralded young author Lauren F. Winner speaks candidly to Christians about the difficulty–and the importance–of sexual chastity. With honesty and wit, she talks about her struggle to live a celibate life. Never dodging tough terms like “confession” and “sin,” Winner grounds her discussion of chastity first and foremost in Scripture. She confronts cultural lies about sex and challenges how we talk about sex in church. Her biblically grounded observations and suggestions will be especially valuable to unmarried Christians struggling with the sexual mania of today’s culture.
Real Sex is essential reading for Christians grappling with chastity and a valuable tool for pastors.
