Book Review: Sex Matters

Cover Art

About

The Unedited Truth About Sex
· Is hooking up really wrong?
· What about living together if you fall in love?
· If the Bible bans sex before marriage . . . is everything else fair game?
· What about same-sex relationships? Since when does God deny any kind of true love?

Great questions . . . but who has the answers?

Our culture creates a lot of confusion about sex. Honestly, sometimes it's difficult to know who's telling the truth. On one hand, when we read our Bibles or go to church, we hear how God's design is to wait for sex and save that kind of intimacy for marriage. But on the other hand, when we go to school, turn on the TV, or listen to many of the songs on our favorite playlists . . . they say quite the opposite. Naturally, this makes many of us wonder. Who's right? Sex seems fun. How can something so natural be off-limits?


My Reflections:

Sex Matters is a frank, biblically sound book that deals with how to effectively broach the subject of sex with our children.

Lets face it, "the talk" is uncomfortable for our teens, but they absolutely have question and we need to be comfortable enough to find honest straight forward answers for them. You remember being young and instead of asking those awkward questions to your parents, where did you go? Friends, books, internet? While questions could be answered, wouldn't it be wise to be the source of faith filled answers for your teens?

Jonathan Mckee has given parents a fabulous tool in his new book. Questions like, Why Wait?, Is Masturbation a sin? These questions are answered and so much more...

In a culture laden with sexual sin and misinformation it is refreshing and empowering to have books like these to help us raise our teens to be the best they can be.

This undiluted book is a powerful tool and I am so glad to have had the opportunity to not only read this book by Mckee but also his other book "More Than Just The Talk" (See review here: http://citygirlmovestothecountry-tanya.blogspot.ca/2015/03/book-review-more-than-just-talk.html ) Resources like these are invaluable in raising kids in today's world, I highly recommend this book and the above mentioned one to add to your collection of reference books. Youth workers, teachers, coaches and students, this book is for you!

Thank you Jonathan Mckee for writing books like these addressing tough questions, that need to be revealed!

I received this book free of charge from Graf-Martin Communications in return for my honest review. Thank you Graf- Martin!
