Sex dominates our identity. Planted within us is a burning desire to passionately enjoy the opposite sex. Unfortunately, for many, that burning desire is a fire raging out of control.
The average individual has their first sexual experience at age 16. One-third of all children are aborted. Of the children not aborted, one-third are born out of wedlock. More money is spent each year by Americans on pornography than the combined revenues of ABC, NBC and CBS. 10% of Americans admit internet pornography addiction.
Since sex is out of control, the church often talks about sex as if it is an evil to be tamed rather than a pleasure to be enjoyed. In church, when was the last time you heard sex portrayed in a positive light?
Wouldn’t it be great if God gave us an instruction manual on how to enjoy sex to God’s glory? Thankfully, he did! It is a book of the Bible called, the Song of Solomon. The Song of Solomon is a collection of short poems that give us windows into the relationship between King Solomon and his first wife, the Shulammite.
In the Solomon on Sex book, we study this book line by line to unlock God’s plan for maximum sexual pleasure.
We also answer thirty-two common questions of sex and marital intimacy.
The Song of Solomon poems describe an illicit sexual relationship Solomon had with one of his wives. Three commandments are broken in the course of their relationship. God commands married couples to build families (Genesis 1:28). There is a lot of sex described in Song of Solomon, but no mention of the natural outcome of sex, children. God commands that there be no other gods before him (Exodus 20:3). The only ones being worshipped in Song of Solomon are Solomon and his wife. They idolize each other. Never is God praised or worshipped. His character is never extolled. He barely gets a passing mention. In Deuteronomy 17, God commands that leaders of Israel are only to have one wife. In Song of Solomon 6:8-10, Solomon compares his new bride to his sixty other wives and his eighty sex slaves. Song of Solomon is a warning against pursuing pleasure. Read Solomon’s conclusion in Ecclesiastes 2.15
too many problematic and accusatory statements15
Great👍🏾 So happy there's sound biblical teaching and answers on marriage and sex and things relating to the subject. I got many questions I once had answered. It's funny and so easy to understand and follow. As they would say it's a real page turner 📖55
Archaic, homophobic, chauvinistic, misinterpreted crap. Just light something on fire to kill time instead of reading this "book."15
Is not feminism, it is female chauvinism. That is the only criticism I, as a newlywed non believer, can offer to this otherwise well written and thought out work. I was only offended as a feminist by the misuse of the term when he said now this part would offend them, as it was about the different roles of the sexes in marriage. But even with the different roles he insisted the sexes were equal in personhood, which is what feminism is all about, raising women all over the world to equality of personhood under the law, not raising them above men(that's your female chauvinism). This is actually the most feminist version of marriage I have seen preached by any church.45
Using Bible research and humor, this book rekindles your romance and brings worship of Christ to the bedroom. Discover what it means to honor God through marital sex.55
This was a great read that can revive your marriage. It will convict and encourage you to be a great Godly wife and show you what that means.55
The book really helped me to understand the Songs of Solomon and that sex is a gift from God that's meant for married people.😃55
Great read! This book has challenged me to not only be a better wife, but a better lover to my husband. The book is a series of messages delivered by a minister who has done his research in order to ensure readers of the message of sex from a Godly prospective. This book goes through the entire book of Song of Solomon and spells out what a marriage should look like.55
Wow. What an amazing straight forward approach to Biblical sex and marriage. I want everyone I know to read this book.55
