But what if we faced up honestly to our sub-Christian culture of shame? Reimagined what it means to made sexual in the image of God? Remembered that we flourish when we live in harmony with God's design? And left behind the broken promises of the sexual revolution to tell a better story of our own?

An must read for every Christian!
This book discusses issues that we simply must engage with as Christians. It gives excellent insight into how we got to where we are in our society and exposes helpfully the ways we as Christians often respond wrongly. It does all of this with compassion and grace. It sets forth a wonderful reminder of why the gospel truly is good news for all people in all places for EVERY situation not least in our sexuality. It holds out a vision of human flourishing that I want for myself and my children and shows why communities of Christians living this story is vital for the world. Thank you Glynn Harrison! I hope to hear more from you on this topic - what a vital resource for the church!

Heartfelt and authoritative
This is the most generous and more courageously orthodox discussion of the sexual revolution and its implications for the church that I’ve found yet. Glynn Harrison manages to be faithful to the Gospel and loving to our messed up society at the same time - what a wonderful feat!

A thoughtful and balanced book.
This book was great. We have been waiting for a legitimate evangelical response to this issue for some time. Harrison provides a helpful and thorough critique of our modern view of sexuality and how it has led to less human flourishing, contra to the claims of the sexual revolution. The book’s strength is that it gives a legitimate appraisal of the moral weight of both sides of the debate, but still lands on a traditional view of sexuality. This view is very well articulated by Harrison.
