Purposeful Sexuality: A Short Christian Introduction (Paperback)
We're all sexual. Ed Shaw invites us to consider the purpose of our sexuality.
If you're a human being, then you're a sexual being. But what is your sexuality for? That's a question we often struggle to answer because we find it so hard to talk about our powerful and personal sexual feelings - perhaps especially if we're Christians.
Ed Shaw explores the Bible's deepest answers to this question in ways that will help everyone to appreciate and enjoy God's purposeful gift of sexuality - whatever your past history, current situation or sexual orientation might be.
