We all want to be loved, and sex is one of God's greatest gifts for expression of love between two people. He has a great plan--that a sexual relationship will give incomparable pleasure and intimacy between a husband and a wife.
In a culture where teenagers are persuaded to believe that it's impossible to be sexually pure and it's not worth the sacrifice, it's no wonder many give in to counterfeit pleasures. So how does a guy respond? We enjoy attention and meaningful relationships with girls, but how are we supposed to know who to date and how to date? How are we to answer the lurking question of how far is too far? And what do we say to our friends who are taking a different path?
Great Love (for Guys) is a 4-week Bible study that covers: How to have sex before you get married (the tragic steps to immorality); How to avoid having sex before you get married; Dating God's way; and What does God say about homosexuality? Each book also has a leader's guide in the back. Don't settle for less. Discover a great plan from a great God who loves you with a great love!
In a candid, relevant approach, Great Love discusses ways that the world has distorted what God intended for intimacy and pleasure within the boundary of marriage. Because our culture is saturated with a devastating sexual immorality, Satan leads teenagers to experience sex as an ever-increasing craving for an ever-decreasing satisfaction. But God has a better plan!
Chandra Peele, author of Priceless and Radiant and coauthor of Great Love (for Girls) and Great Love (for Guys), is a highly recommended speaker and author. She has been endorsed by pastor and author Max Lucado; nationally known youth speaker David Nasser; Stan Lee, founder of Dare 2 Run Ministries; and many other ministers of youth who have invited Chandra to minister to their youth. Using a high-energy, zany approach, she motivates, encourages, and equips teens to live a lifestyle of holiness. As she shares the truths of Gods Word with more than 8,000 students each year, she has audiences laughing, crying, and, more importantly, growing in the love of Christ. She speaks straight from her heart, and God uses her authentic style to lead others to the feet of Jesus. Her passion for Christ is contagious! She believes that to have the best relationship with others, we simply must desire Jesus first. Through His Word, prayer, and fellowship, we can each enjoy the sweetness that comes from being filled with the joy of the Lord. Then instead of chocolates or pizza, we begin to crave and want more of Jesus! This former minister of youth is the founder of GAB (Godly and Beautiful) Ministries, Inc., a ministry with the mission of reaching teens in a real world with a real God. She is a certified abstinence trainer and has worked with such ministries as Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Youth Specialties, and WAIT Training.
