Publisher's Description

What’s the Big Deal About Sex?

Birds do it. Bees do it. And when you turn on the television, log on to the Internet, or watch a movie, you can’t help but notice that everyone else seems to be doing it too. Our culture has embraced the message that sex is just a basic bodily function, as irresistible and harmless as satisfying your hunger and thirst. But is it? Or have we bought into a lie that is rapidly corroding our souls and our society?  

When it comes to sexuality, you can’t ignore the Manufacturer’s directions and escape unharmed. That’s why everyone–teen or adult, single or married–needs to know The Truth About Sex. 

This compelling, interactive study provides an antidote to the world’s subtle yet insidiously dangerous lies. You’ll learn…
·why God created sex in the first place
·what happens when you don’t follow His design
·why virginity matters
·what consequences follow sex outside of marriage
·how to find healing if you’ve been harmed because you or someone else violated God’s instructions
 
With this knowledge comes the power to stand firm, resisting the pull of temptation. Whatever your past–whether you’ve remained sexually pure or endured the pain of misusing God’s precious gift–you’ll find your eyes opened and your life transformed as you discover for yourself The Truth About Sex.

Includes a companion study guide for personal use or group discussion.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for The Truth About Sex

“Can a book about sex convict you and at the same time liberate you? Can it instruct you while encouraging you? Can it help you contain your thought life while increasing your imagination for sex with your partner? Can it help you resolve your past and usher you into a future with deeper and richer levels of intimacy? The Truth About Sex does all of that and more.”
–Stephen Arterburn, coauthor of the Every Man series

“When it comes to the subject of sex, nothing is more needed than a bold, reasoned, and truthful voice. Kay Arthur, in her down-to-brass-tacks yet grace-filled way, is that voice of biblical truth. Read this book for yourself, and give it to teens and singles. They will thank you for it.”
–Dr. Tim Alan Gardner, author of Sacred Sex and The Naked Soul

The Truth About Sex is the most comprehensive treatise I have ever read on the subject of sex from a biblical perspective. For those who endeavor to live a life of sexual integrity this is a must-read!”
–Chris Burge, coauthor of His Rules

“My friend Kay Arthur has done it again: she’s mined Scripture and uncovered a treasure trove of God-planted wisdom and instruction. In The Truth About Sex Kay shows us the warning signs along the path. She shows us the pitfalls of sex outside marriage. And she reminds us of the promises of sex as God intended it to be.”
—Max Lucado, best-selling author and senior minister, Oak Hills Church, San Antonio

    In this world of wantoness and sexual deviation and soft porn on television this book becomes a guide to what sex is, how God sees it and what we are instructed to do...It brings sense to the newer generation who views sex in a non biblical way. Sex is not for sex sake it is holy and this book brings us back to the Biblical and everyday living sense and guides us to guide our family and young people back to the reality of God.

    In the book The Truth About Sex, Kay Arthur addresses many of the misconceptions the world has about sex, by applying God's lessons on the topic as found in Scripture. Whereas the world would paint sex as something functional, mechanical, and without emotional commitments or responsibilities, Arthur argues, "Sex, in its perfect form, brings the intimacy of not only truly belonging to another but longing for the presence of our beloved. It is hallowed purity, the union of a husband and wife that becomes a holy metaphor of the 'wife' God seeks for His Son, of the oneness He longs to have with his people." Arthur boldly confronts the sexual whimsy of the world. She asserts that when people say they are merely sowing wild oats, they want to live and let live, and they do not want to judge others because of their sexual preferences, in reality they are distorting God's purpose for sex. Using passages from the Bible to contradict these improper attitudes, Arthur offers discussion questions at the end of her chapters so that friends and study groups can discuss these matters at length. An additional study guide at the back of the book provides a course outline. This book is an excellent resource for people who are dating or are engaged, but it also is an insightful text for those who have been married a long time and wish to be role models or mentors for others. This generation is being bombarded with sexual images on TV, in ads, on the Internet, and in movies; it's good to have a book that provides God's perspective on what should be a righteous expression of love. -- Marsha Boyanowski, Christian Book Previews.com
