Considering the pervasive immorality and high divorce rate of our contemporary Christian culture, we evidently need a biblically based, theologically compelling, practical understanding of sex, dating, and relationships. Pastors Gerald Hiestand and Jay Thomas counteract this problem with their paradigm-shifting view of purity and relationshipsa view that challenges even the basic assumptions of evangelical subculture.
Unlike most books on dating, this one cuts straight to the heart of dating relationships, asserting with confidence that the line must be drawn at "no sexual activity" whatever. Few have dared to define and apply the Bibles understanding of purity in premarital relationships to this degree, but Heistand and Thomas have done it. Furthermore, both authors are vocational pastors who communicate regularly with the target audience and have a proven ability to express biblical truth in a winsome and compelling manner. Sex, Dating, and Relationships adds a new, almost provocative voice to the conversation that, with straightforward theological insight, pleads with Christians to get serious about honoring Christ with their sexuality.

These authors have great insight into the scriptures and have done a wonderful job putting it into bite-size and understandable chunks for anyone to understand. I wish someone had given this to me when I was younger, but thank God a resource like this is available so I can help my sons and their future wives to guide them through this crooked and perverse generation. Thank you for this invaluable resource, God bless you.
