In a sex-saturated society, sex is on everyone's mind. Christians are no exception but Christians think sex should have to do with true love, and that God defines what true love is. Robbie Castleman believes reclaiming God's plan for sexual relationships is a journey toward holiness. She shows how unmarried Christians can wait until marriage without turning into prudes or wallflowers. She helps us see how we can mold and groom our desires, preparing for a lifetime of joyous and responsible sex within marriage.
In a sex-saturated society, sex is on everyone's mind. And Christians are no exception. For many unmarried people, sex is the forbidden fruit, which makes it all the more intriguing. True Love in a World of False Hope presents an up-front, hopeful--and even humorous--look at God's plan for sexual relationships. Robbie Castleman believes reclaiming purity in relationships is a journey toward holiness. In sprightly, straight-for-the-target prose, she shows how unmarried Christians can wait until marriage without turning into prudes or wallflowers. She helps us see how we can mold and groom our desires, preparing for a lifetime of joyous and responsible sex within marriage. Provocative chapter titles include: "Hormones for Holy People," "Emotional Fornication and Other No-Nos," "Timing is Everything," "Touch Me, Touch Me Not," "Detours, Potholes, Road Hazards" and "Sinful Saints." Spiced with humor and refreshingly clear advice, True Love in a World of False Hope is the book on dating and sex for today's generation of young adults.
