I devoured this book. I loved the way that Rob outlined what it means to be naked with each other. I will forever remember the quote "that when a woman is loved she opens up like a flower".
I have given this book to my 21 year old who is starting a new relationship. I haven't told him anything about it, apart from the fact that it may influence the relationship that he has and the direction that relationship goes. I can't recommend this book highly enough for those contemplating a relationship and even those who are in a relationship.
This book caught my eye with the title. I ordered it on a whim. I have been so enriched by this book. I want to recommend it to everyone. A wonderful read and very very helpful. Great insight. Awesome! Thank you Rob Bell for this work!!
my take on this book is nothing about sex , is all about the relationship. Jesus said our first commandment is to love God with all our heart, might and soul and the second is to love our neighbor as we love ourselves. It's all about the relationship, first is God and the rest is easy. Love God and life good.
I believe Rob Bell is right on point and relevent to our culture. My husband and I are youth pastors at a Vineyard Church and we are currently going through this book. I was surprised to find out that some of our christian youth didn't believe in waiting to have sex. Had we not gone through this book we would have never known this was an issue. As a christian culture we are so afraid to talk about one of the greatest gifts God has given us. We need to not be ashamed of it and be able to explain it to our kids so that they have a godly understanding of it and not pull their sex ed from tv or even school now a days. I highly recommend this book!
