Publisher's Description

What is the connection between spirituality and sexuality? The church's relative silence through the centuries on this subject has left many wondering if their sexual experience is separate from their spiritual experience or even a deterrent to it. As a result, many people are duped into seeing spirituality as a grab bag and sexuality as a free-for-all. With careful biblical analysis and appropriate candor, pastor Dan Scott highlights some of the fascinating links between sexuality and spiritual life:

  • Both require an intense focus on another person.
  • Both address the deep human need for intimacy.
  • Both exceed the limits of strictly rational thinking.
  • Both can help us use our imaginations in healthy ways.
  • Both are meaningful only in the context of a covenant.

Readers will discover how to integrate these two elements of their lives and allow them to powerfully enhance each other.

Publisher's Weekly

Some of us never got The Talk from our folks, and still others were left to the mercy of our well meaning but possibly misguided friends. Where do we find room for someone to explain that sex is spiritual and special, yet also meant to be sought, savored, and even enjoyed within the confines of a committed marriage? Enter Scott, pastor and psychologist. With a well-balanced combination of personal and professional anecdotes, scriptural reference, and approachability, Scott takes the whispered rumors of sex into a spirited discussion. He doesn't mince words—or topics—covering not only masturbation and sexual ecstasy but also abuse and addiction. Working within the framework of a conservative Christian background, he gently (and not so gently) breaks down the walls so often created around the mysteries of intimacy, all the while stressing the need not only for Covenant but for a transcendent relationship with God. In an unusual twist, Scott includes welcome references to Judaism and other religious traditions as well as Christianity. Readers struggling with this most personal part of their marriage should find comfort within these pages as they come to understand that "far from being a distraction from spiritual life, sex is a form of spiritual life."
