Sex With God, by Dewitt Hall, is a gift of God much like our sexuality is. As a product of the purity culture that invaded my Christian upbringing, the author’s assessment that “purity culture was a failed experiment with long-lasting, ugly repercussions, has been life-transforming for me. Shame, she writes, “is corrosive. It’s powerful and stunting. And it’s NOT of God.” Christianity, she attests, “was born from an act of lovemaking, when the Holy Spirit fell upon Mary, and she conceived, bearing the fruit of love who IS Love.”
This book is a much-needed balm in our messy, judgmental world. I pray when it finds you, you and your relationships will be freed to embrace the holy within you and your union.
Sex With God:
Meditations on the sacred nature of sex in a post-purity-cultureworld
(Where True Love Is Book 6)
Involving God in your sex life may sound scandalous, but sexuality was designed by our creator and is saturated with the very being of God. So why not invite the divine in?
The concept may feel awkward at first, because we’ve been trained by purity culture and centuries of mistrust of our bodies and our desires. But God wants to be part of all we do. God is already there when you are naked with your beloved. God is within you, and within them, and between you both.
Be brave. Enter into that presence. You have the power to transform sex into worship of God, with God.
