Book Review: Sex, Jesus, and the Conversations the Church Forgot

From The Back:

It's past time for some raw and candid conversations about virginity, promiscuity, and everything in between.
In a world obsessed with sex, why is the church relatively silent about it? While sex is twisted, perverted, cheapened, and idolized in popular culture, we leave young people drowning in the repercussions of misinformation, misunderstanding, and worth-robbing mistakes that could have been avoided.

Enough is enough. With raw vulnerability and a bold spirit, Mo Isom shares her own sexual testimony, opening up the conversation about misguided rule-following, virginity, temptation, porn, promiscuity, false sexpectations, sex in marriage, and more, calling us back to God's original design for sex--a way to worship and glorify Him.

Sex was God's idea. It's time we invited Him back into the bedroom.
My Reflections:

This book. Wow, I'm not sure what I was expecting but it was way more than I ever thought it would be. Candid, honest, and raw, in a good way. It brings the topic of sex into the light. Our culture has so tarnished God's magnificent gift to us. We have forgotten to celebrate sex as a gift we have been blessed with. 

I loved how Mo Isom takes a topic that is overdone and really digs to the heart of the issue, and it is delivered in a simple straightforward manner. She also uses her own story to help define her book in a raw and unrefined manner. She shares her heart, she lays out her pain, and we see the progression from struggle and heartache to God's refining, pure healing in all aspects of life. 

This book is powerful, it speaks to us all married, single, young, old, Christian or secular you will undoubtedly find something that impacts you where you are right now. I encourage you to pick this one up, you won't regret it.
