Description

Sexual intimacy in marriage is a great gift from a good God that cements couples together and brings unity and happiness.

Nevertheless, in our broken and messed-up world we often need help and direction to understand and enjoy what it means to give ourselves to one another, and to overcome some of the difficulties and questions that every Christian husband and wife faces.

Adrian and Celia Reynolds are straightforward and compassionate as they look at Scripture to guide couples in this area. They give five clear biblical principles relating to sex and apply them to the common questions Christian couples ask about intimacy.

As a Christian sexologist, I would recommend this book to all marrieds and to be marrieds. It places the erotic joy of sex within the creation, fall, redemption new creation narrative and expresses physical sexual intimacy in the context of holiness and sanctification. In a culture where sexual intimacy is commodified and cheapened it is an encouragement to couples to ground their sex life in the intimacy, selfless love and oneness that Christ and his bride enjoy.”

Adrian and Celia Reynolds have written a little book on a big subject. Over the last two decades as we have invested in our marriage and in Christian ministry we have faced many situations ourselves and many couples around us struggling with the intimacy. We believe that to have this honest, very personal and yet deeply biblical treatment on this much needed topic at hand will help many and will bring blessing and joy to the couples who want to glorify God in every area of their life.

This refreshingly frank book is cleverly written so as to be informative without being embarrassing. Thoroughly Biblical, highly accessible, with principles that will be relevant for couples whatever stage they are at. Fantastic as a resource for marriage prep—or for any marriages looking to explore God’s design for intimacy.”
