Author: Rob Bell

Description: This is not your typical book on sex. If you are looking for a guide to different techniques or even the simplicity of a 7-point outline, you will not find it in this book. However, it made this website because I appreciate how Bell stimulates thought about the deeper values that underline our sexual relationships. Bell’s style of writing is very casual (think lots of white space) and is interspersed with anecdotes (think blogger) that make the book easy to follow despite the weighty issues that he addresses. You could read a snippet of the book and think about it for the rest of the day. If you have been seeking a contemplative book on sex, this is the one for you.

Favorite Chapter: Worth Dying For. This chapter flies in the face of a culture that encourages couples to fight for their individual rights in the relationship. Bell argues that when couples are more concerned about taking care of the needs of their spouse, rather than asserting their individual rights, their relationship get healthier and healthier and “you lose track of who’s in charge.”

Best Take-away: Modern life has increased the isolation that we feel and the deep desire we have to connect in a real and meaningful way with others. Now, more than ever, we need to understand that “our sexuality is all the ways we strive to reconnect with our world, with each other, and with God.”
