Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Have you ever wondered how it would look to live out a Christian sexual ethic amid the varied and confusing sexual messages that are part of modern culture? Does the Christian tradition provide us with a way to think about and act on our natural, God-given sexual desires? Honoring God with Body and Mind invites readers to consider these questions—and some ways of answering them—by guiding them into a conversational style of moral reflection. Unlike many books about Christians and sex, this one doesn’t simply tell you what to do (or not to do). Instead, you will be led to think about how the meaning of sex can provide sexual boundaries, but also how the relational dimension of sex and the virtue of sexual integrity can provide a context for sexual decision-making. Informed by many years of conversations with college students, the author also invites you to think about practical questions such as these: Can men and women be friends without the complications of sexual attraction? If I haven’t always included Christian values in my sexual practices and carry some painful memories and regrets, is there any hope of healing? What is lust? Is masturbation sinful? Can virginity be reclaimed?
