Summary, etc.:
Moving beyond the deep-seated cultural feelings of shame that have long fueled the conflict between Christianity and sex-and the belief that there is only one right and valid way to practice one's sexuality-this renowned University of Chicago pastor uses enlightening personal stories and examples from theology to show how sex is powerful and holy. Breaking with outdated conventions, McCleneghan explains how the Bible and Christian tradition inform our beliefs about desire, pleasure, nudity, fidelity, premarital sex, and the variety of sexual practices, and encourages Christians to talk about their bodies, their sensuality, and their longings in a frank, positive, and realistic way. Warm, insightful, and honest, Good Christian Sex is a message of hope, that at last lifts the veil of shame felt by many religious people.
