Jones - The God of SexThe God of Sex: How Spirituality Defines Your Sexuality by Peter Jones

With ever increasing measure and speed the Christian perspective on human sexuality is under attack and being forced to the fringes of society.  But is such a phenomenon merely the conflict between ‘traditional values’ and ‘progressive’ cultural attitudes?  In The God of Sex, Peter Jones demonstrates that the root of our cluture’s shifting attitudes about sex is a spiritual one, and that how we think about God has a direct bearing on how we conceive of and practise our sexuality.  A great resource to help Christians understand and truthfully respond to the sexual confusion of our age.
