How do we live the Christian life in today’s sex-saturated, self-gratifying culture where moral values are constantly under attack and where sin distorts all that God designed? Gary Inrig addresses this dilemma by providing a practical understanding of God’s original purpose for His good gift of human sexuality. Pure Desire anchors moral conviction in specific passages of Scripture and offers wise counsel on how to face the challenge of the culture by applying the standards of God’s revelation. Pure Desire encourages us to have a deep desire to not only avoid sexual sin but to pursue holiness for our good and for the glory of God.

This book is for everyone. Its call to sexual sanity isn''t new, but is a needed and, often, a refreshing, reminder of who we are as the people of God and what that means in relation to one of God''s most beautiful gifts to man and wife.
