Product Description

"If we're in love, what's wrong with having sex before marriage? And even if we're not-isn't everyone else doing it? Why should we be the only ones who wait?"

Have you ever thought or said things like this? If your answer is yes, you have a lot of company-most people in our world agree with you that, at least in some circumstances, premarital sex is okay. But do you know what God says about this issue?

Timothy S. Lane clearly explains God's perspective on your sexuality and how it should be expressed. Many people think God says in the Bible that sex is inherently bad and sinful, but nothing could be further from the truth. God is not a killjoy-his guidelines for your sexuality are for your help and protection. This booklet's forthright and honest look at sexuality, including a discussion of "How far is too far?" will be an invaluable resource for young adults and those who minister to them.

    The title looked promising, but the content was vague and wishy-washy, saying it all depends on your situation. No help at all.

    The Christian Counseling and Educational Foundation is an excellent resource for a Scriptural-based approach to life's problems. Their motto is "Restoring Christ to counseling, and counseling to the Church." I have found their materials to be gospel-centered and grace-oriented. They are an incredible help to the church.

    CCEF through its publishing arm, New Growth Press, makes available a wide range of booklets that address a host of common problems. I am going to highlight a few of these booklets in this post.

    The booklets are sensitive to the life-situation they address, yet also apply the Bible and particularly the Gospel to the problem. I highly recommend them.

    "Sex Before Marriage: How Far is Too Far?" by Timothy Lane -- a counseling booklet with that title would scare me. But that's the kind of question on many people's mind. The booklet begins by rooting advice in a biblical view of sex. It's wonderful and its a big deal, not something flippant or light. It goes on not so much as to prescribe boundaries but to expose heart issues and motivations. It admits chastity will look different in different cultures and times, but it gives an overarching principle: "Don't act like you are married when you are not!" It draws a line and recommends no romantic or involved physical touching, let alone other questionable acts. It shifts the focus to marriage and will lead the conscientious reader right in this difficult arena.

    Disclaimer: This book was provided by New Growth Press for review. I was under no obligation to offer a favorable review.

Q: Is this book a good guide for both young men and ladies? Some books are geared toward a particular gender (young men, or young ladies), a book is written in a way that talks to them in a manner they can relate to and connects them to its content. I needed to know if this book is appropriate for young ladies or does it address the issue from a male point of view.Thank you.

A: This booklet is gender neutral.
