Good Christian SexMoving beyond the deep seated cultural feelings of shame that have long fueled the conflict between Christianity and sex and the belief that there is only one right and valid way to practice one’s sexuality this renowned University of Chicago pastor uses enlightening personal stories and examples from theology to show how sex is powerful and holyFor years Christians have been told to adhere to one singular path when it comes to sex abstinence and purity Yet this limited focus ignores the reality that people’s sexual and romantic lives differ widely even amo Most of us want to love and be loved to find relationships in which we can be ourselves and also experience the thrill of desireAs a pastor as a Christian I hope the simple acknowledgment that there may be than one acceptable holy and just way to live as sexual beings is a blessing an invitation to those who have been taught that God's way is singular and exclusiveI am so grateful McCleneghan decided to write this book I appreciate her care with language definitions and applications as she lays out her theology particularly the chapters on desire and singleness I wish this book had been around 15 years ago I would have framed some of my experiences and lack thereof in such a different light The last few years my thinking has evolved toward much of what McCleneghan lays out but I couldn't have explained why There is so much I want to say about how liberated and affirmed I feel after reading this McCleneghan makes space for us to go beyond purity culture and examine how we truly respect and love our potential romantic partners before andor after marriage This isn't anything I've seen discussed before in church but it's the discussion I've longed for especially in my advanced single state I'm sure there are plenty who will uestion her approach but I for one find it to be a refreshing call for grace and freedom It is a call to lay down any shame It is a call for joy and self acceptance It is beautifulDisclosure I received an ARC from HarperOne in exchange for an honest review
