Product Description

Many Christian books talk about sexual issues within broader works on marriage, but few resources comprehensively and biblically guide couples specifically on sexual intimacy. God, Sex, and Your Marriage challenges the common assumptions couples have about sexuality and presents the richer biblical narrative of sex as a metaphor of God's covenant love. Dr. Juli Slattery applies that biblical framework to the practical challenges in sexual intimacy. Godly sexuality extends far beyond sexual purity and calls us to sexual integrity. God invites every couple to view their sexual relationship, including their greatest struggles, as an avenue to learn about the nature of His covenant love. It's God desire to make us more like Himself and sex within marriage is often a powerful training ground for godly character. That desire gives purpose and context to addressing pornography, healing from past wounds, sexual incompatibility, pursuing pleasure together, and forgiveness.

Praise for God, Sex, and Your Marriage

"Mutual sexual fulfillment is the desire of most married couples, but often seems illusive. It may seem strange to Christian ears that God has that same desire for your marriage. In God, Sex, and Your Marriage, Dr. Juli Slattery clarifies the power of letting God into the marital bedroom. Understanding God's perspective has the potential of greatly enhancing your sexual relationship."
Author of The 5 Love Languages

"This is a MUST READ for every married couple. And even singles. Juli brings a wisdom and insight into God's design for sexuality that will deepen your understanding of God's dream for married sex, but also of God Himself. Her teaching on 'yada' is worth the whole book. Get it. Read it. Apply it. And share this book with others because these truths are needed now more than ever."
Cohosts of FamilyLife Today

"T. S. Eliot once observed that we must first know what something is for if we are ever to know what to do with it. The same is true of sexual intimacy in marriage, which makes God, Sex, and Your Marriage by Juli Slattery such an important book. Beyond the dos and don'ts, Juli offers the big picture of why God created sex in the first place."

"If there are parts of your sex life that are too painful to even think about, let alone talk about, this book is ESSENTIAL reading. In the arena of Christian sex help, Juli brings a unique and much-needed perspective, helping us understand how the pursuit of true sexual intimacy begins not in the bedroom but in the throne room. Eminently practical and relatable, this book makes my heart sing when I think about the hope and healing that this message will bring to couples who feel stuck and demoralized."
Director, Fight For Love Ministries

"God, Sex, and Your Marriage is an excellent and theologically sound resource that incorporates spirituality and sexuality. Colossians 3:17 says, 'And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus' (ESV). Dr. Slattery teaches how we can enjoy sex in the name of Jesus and grow in our relationship with Him through God's gift of sex. This book will help you grow in your walk with Christ and in your enjoyment of your spouse."
