Sex, God, and Marriage
Johann Christoph Arnold
In this groundbreaking book, Arnold, a pastor for almost forty years, addresses the pain resulting from broken relationships and the misuse of sexual intimacy. He 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 guilt – 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. Arnold addresses the deep pain resulting from the cycle of broken relationships and the misuse of sexual intimacy. His words offer healing, a new beginning, and a sense of hope to those who have experienced discouragement or failure. Sex, God, and Marriage carries a Foreword by Mother Teresa and was formerly titled A Plea for Purity. Also available, a free study guide(English) to facilitate group discussion or personal study.
“I am very happy for this book and for its moral conviction. It will inevitably arouse hatred. But we must continue in trying to overcome evil with good.” —Pope Benedict XVI
