Masturbation — This is addressed directly with scripture. Other topics include homosexuality and other difficult sexual issues. Is written in a blunt manner and could be an uncomfortable book to read.
That much Dannah writes to you on the first page. As this is written to an older audience mainly senior high and college girls I would recommend it for the audience to which it is written and no younger than that.
Gresh does address masturbation, pornography and homosexuality. ComiXology Thousands of Digital Comics.

It is found more than times in the Bible, and aside from marital relations, it is most commonly found in verses that talk about being known by God. And so I put my super critical glasses on and prepared to deal with whatever horrible theology was about to be thrown my way. After reading the book in its entirety, I came to the conclusion that the first two chapters should be cut from the book, leaving an age appropriate written for young adults , challenging, redeeming, truthful in a nutshell exposition on sex.
The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective. She offers the idea of forgiveness, and being made whole in Christ as the ultimate solution. In Chapter 14, Gresh pulls out Ephesians 5 as a biblical model for finding a mate, and I whole heartedly agree with this whole chapter. I was actually surprised by this chapter, as it seems to contradict what she says in chapter two about the kind of love to be looking for.
Anyways, this book does struggle slightly in my opinion with romanticism, the idea that you want some epic five year long pursuit with flowers everyday ending with a carriage ride and then a marriage proposal kind of romance. Would I give it to my daughter to read? I think I might, as long as a discussion followed it up. Would this be my first pick for a book on the theology of sex? Jan 14, John H.

I am currently reading, What are you waiting for by Dannah Gresh.. I read one of her other books, prior to this and I loved it. I chose the book because it focuses on celibacy, purity, and God's design for sex. I bought the book from Amazon last week paperback.

Gresh I am currently reading, What are you waiting for by Dannah Gresh.. Gresh discusses porn, masturbation, homosexuality, friends with benefits, and finding love. All of this was written from a Christian perspective. I am trying to read more books about sexuality from a Christian perspective. So much information is out there, but I want to know what God says. The author starts out discussing her marriage--from dating to the proposal. Dannah also discussed how her old boss encouraged her to have sex and even wanted to buy condoms.
She discusses how she felt conflicted between sexual freedom and sexual purity. One side says to indulge in sex and the other side says indulge in God. The battle between the spirit and flesh is a tough one. Sure, I think about sex, but I am not trying to rush back into having sex.
Celibacy is hard, but it's where I need to be right now. Dannah also discusses sex in the bible. Yada is the Hebrew word for sex. Not just any sex, "to know, to be known, to be deeply respected" p.

Yada is intimate sex with someone, who truly knows you like a husband. Yada adds a level of emotional intimacy to sex. No secrets, and nothing is held back p. Yada is used more than times in the Hebrew Bible. Yada does not only apply to sex, but it applies to a relationship with God. God wants to be known and respected. He wants us to seek him and follow after him with a pure heart. He does not want us to fall for counterfeit love p. Shakab is frequently used with Sikba, which means emission p.
Shakab also means exchange of fluids. This is a form of counterfeit love. Having sex with someone to simply exchange fluids. This is the dirty, disgusting, yucky, awkward, shameful types of sex p. I had a lot of this type of sex and very little or none Yada sex. Finally, I started reading the chapter on Masturbation first. This was the main reason I bought the book. The bible does not offer direct teaching on masturbation p. The bible tells us not to commit adultery, which is a sin. If you look after another with lust in your heart, you are committing adultery.
This may involve pornography or staring at half-naked people online I have left groups on Facebook because of the half-naked, tempting men photos. Masturbation can also hinder our relationship with God and people. It can become addictive which was true for me. It also may cause shame. It also can affect future relationships, such as it can rob your future husbands or husbands ability to please you p.
