Sex, God and Marriage - Johann Christoph Arnold  (Paperback)

Foreword by Mother Teresa

In this groundbreaking book, Arnold, a pastor for over forty years, provides fresh biblical insights into critical issues including the sacredness of sex, the struggle against temptation, the decision to remain single or to marry, child rearing, homosexuality, divorce and remarriage. Sex, God, and Marriage offers healing to anyone who has known discouragement or failure – and hope to anyone who is willing to take a bold new look at a topic of universal interest and concern.

Unlike the vast majority of marriage books, Sex, God, and Marriage digs deeper than the usual issues and goes to the root: our relationship with God, and the defining power of that relationship over all others in our lives.

---------------------------

A message that is desperately needed today . . . should be in the hands of every educator and teenager. --Alice von Hildebrand

Arnold writes simply, eloquently, and faithfully. His Sex, God, and Marriage is a relentless, biblical call for renewed Christian commitment. Advocates of accommodated, acculturated Christianity will find little comfort in these pages; struggling disciples, however, will be much encouraged. --William H. Willimon, Duke Divinity School

Arnold's bold statement on the meaning of marriage clarifies for the sometimes confused church a concept central to Christian teaching.--Charles Edward Blake, Presiding Bishop, Church of God in Christ

Clear, compassionate, uncompromisingly Christian, and straight from (and to) the heart. . . . Pretty close, I think, to what Jesus would say if he were to write a book about sex today - and probably as socially acceptable as he was. --Peter Kreeft, Boston College

I am very happy for this book and for its moral conviction. --Pope Benedict XVI

In this book we find a message needed today in every part of the world. --Mother Teresa

Simple and short, but deep, this is one of the best books on handling sexuality in a way that honors God. --J. I. Packer, Regent College

Striking for its clear and penetrating presentation of simple (and yet immensely profound) biblical truths about human sexuality. I wish everyone could read this call to cut through the complications of modern life by a holy and Christ-like life. --William A. Dyrness, Fuller Theological Seminary

To advocate an ideal of sexual purity is perhaps the last American taboo. . . . This book provides a wise spiritual guide on how, and why, to lead such a life. --Paul C. Vitz, New York University
