It is not an exaggeration to say that there is no single subject that influences people as profoundly as sex. It takes up our thought life, dominates our dream life, and fills our fantasies. It has been the grand subject of literature, past and present, and now is the grand subject of our TV shows and movies as well. Hundreds of monthly magazines and thousands of books seem to cover every angle of sex and sexuality. It has been the subject of countless studies: What do women want? What turns them on? What do men like? How can you keep one? The list of questions goes on and on about women, men, singles, dating, relationships, married couples, and oh so much more. Interestingly, in a society where there seems to be so much honest talk and openness about sex (indeed, nothing is concealed anymore), most people’s sexual relationships are less than fulfilling. The statistics indicate that the vast majority of men and women in the United States are doomed to a life of sexual frustration and failed relationships. But does that have to be the case? No, it does not. God created mankind and in His wisdom, He gave us a book with clear commandments and guidelines about how to live our lives as the sexual beings that we are. That book is the Bible. The Bible speaks volumes about proper and improper sexual behavior. God wants people to have wonderful and fulfilling relationships. Few things have the ability to wreck a life as quickly and completely as sexuality and sexual relationships gone awry. No wonder then that the Bible has so much to say about sex and sexual behavior—as always, our loving heavenly Father shows us the right path to walk to be able to live a blessed and fulfilled life. Modern studies are uncovering facts about sexual relationships that the Bible has espoused for millennia. Too bad that the studies often involve real people who are cut and scarred from broken promises, busted relationships and lost love, much of which could have been avoided if the words in the Bible had been known and followed. Sex and Scripture covers, in clear everyday language, what the Bible says about sexual subjects. Topics covered include abstinence, marriage, adultery, prostitution, homosexuality, lust, pornography, masturbation, and boundaries in relationships. The Bible has answers for mankind’s questions and promises God’s blessings for those who seek, find, and obey.
Divorce. Broken families. Sexual abuse. Addiction. Pornography. Same-sex marriage. Gender issues. Everywhere we look, we find more and more confusion about the most fundamental truths of human life. As we lose our basic understanding of the meanings of man, woman, marriage, and sex, the question becomes ever more urgent: What does it mean to be a human being? The human race seems unable to answer this question. Against this backdrop, St. John Paul II's Theology of the Body appears as a bright light in the darkness. His writings on the body, sex, desire, and the meaning of love go straight to the heart of what it means to be fully human. The pope's insights are profound, timely, and meet the questions of modern society head on . . . but they are often not accessible enough for most of us to grasp easily. That's where Christopher West comes in. In Theology of the Body for Beginners, he provides a short, simple summary of St. John Paul II's vital teachings on important questions such as: - What is the meaning of life? - How do we fulfill our deepest desires? - Why did God create us male and female? - Where can we find true happiness here on earth? The first edition of this book was released in 2004, and it instantly became an international best seller. In this updated, revised, and expanded edition, you ll have access to key insights gleaned from Dr. Michael Waldstein s critically acclaimed research and translation, as well as brand-new commentary added by West in light of the gender chaos so prevalent in our world today. Christopher West covers the main points of this revolutionary teaching in a way that you and I can understand. You'll see desire physical, emotional, and spiritual in a whole new light!
 

 

Is there a science to love?

In this groundbreaking book, psychiatrist and neuroscientist Amir Levine and psychologist Rachel S. F. Heller reveal how an understanding of attachment theory-the most advanced relationship science in existence today-can help us find and sustain love. Attachment theory forms the basis for many bestselling books on the parent/child relationship, but there has yet to be an accessible guide to what this fascinating science has to tell us about adult romantic relationships-until now.

Attachment theory owes its inception to British psychologist and psychoanalyst John Bowlby, who in the 1950s examined the tremendous impact that our early relationships with our parents or caregivers has on the people we become. Also central to attachment theory is the discovery that our need to be in a close relationship with one or more individuals is embedded in our genes.

In Attached, Levine and Heller trace how these evolutionary influences continue to shape who we are in our relationships today. According to attachment theory, every person behaves in relationships in one of three distinct ways:

*ANXIOUS people are often preoccupied with their relationships and tend to worry about their partner's ability to love them back.

*AVOIDANT people equate intimacy with a loss of independence and constantly try to minimize closeness.

*SECURE people feel comfortable with intimacy and are usually warm and loving.

Attached guides readers in determining what attachment style they and their mate (or potential mates) follow. It also offers readers a wealth of advice on how to navigate their relationships more wisely given their attachment style and that of their partner. An insightful look at the science behind love, Attached offers readers a road map for building stronger, more fulfilling connections.
