TracyT1 Stars Out Of 5January 21, 2009TracyTThis book in one chapter says that one of the causes for genital herpes is oral sex yet in another chapter it says that since there are no direct scriptures forbidding oral sex that it is okay for Christian to engage in oral sex. Sin causes hurt and pain and anything that can cause a painful and incurable STD does not contribute to a healthy sex life. Also, the role playing issue raised says that it's okay to role play if you remain yourself and stay in gender yet the two examples given for sexual role play are a nurse giving the man a sponge bath or a woman getting rescued by a fisherman. Both of these scenarios imply having sex first encounter with a stranger which is not scriptural so it should not be role played. I threw this book out. I would give it no stars but when I did my review didn't register so I will give it 1/2 star because there is other information in there that is useful but that you can find in most health books.

Cori Smelker5 Stars Out Of 5October 9, 2008Cori SmelkerDrs Farhart and King cover the unique aspects of all womens health with expertise, thoroughness, and in a non-judgmental and educating way. Christian women are faced with challenges when it comes to their general health and more specifically their sexuality.This book sets out to candidly, and from a biblical viewpoint, answer those niggling questions a woman might not want to ask her pastor or spiritual counselor, for fear of being thought less of. This is not a dry tome filled with do's and don'ts, but an in-depth look at issues that face the modern Christian woman. It is written with sensitivity and contains just the right amount of humor to bring a smile to a readers face. Questions such as, is God interested in my sex life, and what the Bible says about sex are frankly discussed in detail. The answers might surprise some women who have been raised to believe that sex is the forbidden fruit. This up-to-date book tackles medical myths and looks at modern medicines, giving a balanced perspective on such topics as Hormone Replacement Therapy, birth control methods and vaccines, among other things. The authors give practical tips on how to handle various health issues, and provide website addresses to learn more about a specific topic, if necessary. This is helpful as reading the book may trigger questions that are not the books main focus.Best of all the authors use the Bible as their plumb line, nothing in this book is contrary to scripture, and is therefore a great read for any Christian woman who really wants to stay in the will of God while dealing with modern-day topics and issues.I recommend you buy a copy for yourself, and then for any girl or woman in your life we can all benefit from the information contained in its pages.

Tell us a little about yourself. I am a Christian OB/GYN who has been in practice for twenty years. I am an elder at Cornerstone Church under the leadership of Pastor John Hagee. This is my second book, the first being "Intimate and Unashamed: God's Design for Sexual Fulfillment".
What was your motivation behind this project? I want Christian women to have a safe place to seek answers to questions about their health from a reliable source that also respects their values.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I want them to gain knowledge about their bodies and the changes that occur from puberty through menopause.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? I realized how often women are reluctant to ask their doctors questions, especially those questions they find embarrassing.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? Diana Hagee first encouraged me to talk about sexual issues in the church; Dr. Don Colbert showed me that a physician can have a private practice and be a national author at the same time.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: I have written my books in a way that is easy to understand and takes the confusion away from complicated medical issues. I have included stories of patient's lives to help the reader see where this information applies to them.
