Best-selling author Carmen Renee Berry tackles these and other issues that arise when the church discusses sex and sexuality. In lively, compelling prose, she traces sexual attitudes and practices in the Old Testament culture, notes the effects Jesus had on societal mores, and follows these attitudes as they have evolved in Western civilization.
This bold, balanced discussion is as entertaining as it is informative, encouraging us to demonstrate that our love for Christ transcends our differences in doctrine - and opinion.

Is it possible to be a Christian and a sexual being? At times it seems like the Church pits sexuality and spirituality against one another. Yet the cost in creating such a dichotomy has resulted in harmful implications on spiritual growth, sexual intimacy, and moral credibility.
The Unauthorized Guide to Sex and the Church traces sexual attitudes and practices in Hebrew culture as presented in the Old Testament through the current issues that confront the church today. It addresses questions such as "How has the church become so notorious for sex scandals amongst its leadership?" "Why is the church unable to present a united front on sexual issues such as marriage/divorce, premarital sex, homosexuality, and abortion?" and "How can I make wise and informed choices about these important issues in light of my beliefs?"
Blending historical facts with practical wisdom, this lively exploration looks at how Christian views of sex have developed and changed based on doctrinal, cultural, medical, scriptural, and psychological understandings.
