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
