A Bible study about sex for women? Now that's different!
This new study, Passion Pursuit: What Kind of Love Are You Making?, lets God's Word speak about sex as being holy and erotic, blessed by God, and satisfying far beyond what the world can even imagine. Picture that as a headline on the cover of Cosmopolitan!
By using scripture throughout the Bible, Passion Pursuit not only urges women to pursue passion but details how God has given them permission to do so. Though there is fun to be had along the way in this study, it hits hard on the questions women have but are hesitant to ask, like:
This audaciously bold study combines the psychological expertise of Dr Juli Slattery, formerly of Focus on the Family, along with moving stories from trusted Bible teacher and best-selling author Linda Dillow. The groups who have already done this study have seen their marriages come alive, whether they've been married four months or forty years; be next!
PLUS! Check out the Passion Pursuit DVD for even more great teaching from Lisa Dillow and Dr. Slattery. It's the perfect resource for individuals or small groups.

The combined wisdom and integrity of these two women, coupled with their refusal to avoid even the most intimate issues, will have this resource flying off bookshelves and into the hands and hearts of women who want real passion in their marriage. Every wife, every where, needs to do this Bible study. It will change the most important relationship in your life. - Priscilla Shirer, Bible teacher, author and speaker.

Passion Pursuit gently yet unapologetically leads Christian women to that most marvelous of places: helping them to care about their sexual relationship as much as God does. Women who go through this fine study will certainly feel themselves drawing not just closer to their husbands, but also closer to God. Not only will they find themselves more pleasing to their husbands and more capable of experiencing greater personal delight themselves, but along the way they will also be led to become more and more like Christ. A marvelous aim, successfully achieved, and brilliantly executed. - Gary Thomas, author of Sacred Marriage and The Sacred Search
Sex is a hot topic. But, for many women sex is uncomfortable, an obligation, or a reminder of past hurts.

You mean Christian women can, do, and should enjoy sex? Whodathunkit? Well, God did—first; but then all sorts of well-meaning experts created a mess with all-things Christian+sex+female+marriage+fun+healthy. As such, it's been difficult to find a book that engagingly couples biblical counsel with wise, funny, relatable, and thoroughly modern discussion—but Linda Dillow and Dr. Juli Slattery have accomplished just that! I highly recommend Passion Pursuit's spiritually saucy pages to every woman of faith. After all, satisfying, fun, and guilt-free sex was God's idea from the very beginning. - Julie Barnhill, National and International speaker and author of ten books

Passion Pursuit opens the door to much healing, much pleasure, and much clarity on the sexual experience. It offers a more beautiful, passionate, and pleasurable picture for both husband and wife than the world can ever give. It will drastically change marriages and heal broken hearts. I pray every church in America will embrace this study for their women—and do so quickly! - Pat Harley, speaker, teacher, The Amazing Collection, and President of Big Dream Ministries
