Peter Jones courageous tackles the topic of sexuality. God created everything and declared it good. It is in the scriptures; check out Genesis. However, man has perverted what God has created.
The first section of The God of Sex discusses paganism. Wicca, New Age, Ecumenicalism, are all gaining popularity. Liberated marriages and liberated sex, liberated families and liberated gender are terms many of us “older folk” never thought we would hear.
Young people today want an open, frank discussion of sexuality. They are begging for guidance from Christian leaders. Yet the church prefers to hide its head in the sand and hope the questions will go away. People are besieged by the readily available pornography, abortion, the promotion of homosexuality, and promiscuity. It is no wonder today’s young adults are asking questions.
The second part of The God of Sex returns us to basic Biblical beliefs. Many will not like Jones’ message. Everything God created is good. Jones continues by discussing God’s holiness and the relationship with sexuality.
Not everyone will appreciate this book. It is boldly to the point. Jones calls for a Holy relationship with God, and that includes Holy sexuality. This is a very important book for all Christians.
