Finally, a book that offers frank, humorous, sensitive yet unblushing, biblically grounded answers to the real-life, nitty-gritty private questions that Christians are asking about sex?even the questions they are afraid to ask!

Publishers Description
Answers to real-life, nitty-gritty private questions Christians are asking about sex Louis and Melissa McBurney offer frank, humorous, sensitive, and biblically grounded answers to the thousands of sex questions readers have sent to the editors of Marriage Partnership, a publication of Christianity Today International. The authors deal with sensitive issues that need to be talked about, but within a solid spiritual, psychological, and therapeutic context. This book is perfect for newlyweds, newlyweds of 25 years, or for parents to give their engaged son or daughter who is soon to be married. The McBurney s give frank, honest answers to real, honest questions that many Christians have always wanted to ask, but were too embarrassed or afraid. The author s authentic, unblushing, yet thoroughly Christian perspective is presented in a two-column format. Their humor, husband-wife dialogue, and to-the-point answers provide an ideal reference for all the stages of married sex."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A good reference book...  Aug 13, 2007
I discovered this book at a deep discount, and having read the McBurney's "Real Sex" column in Marriage Partnership magazine for the past several years, I decided to give it a try. Though I have a few critiques, I was generally pleased with this book.

There are several significant strengths of this book. The McBurneys are obviously experienced Christian sex counselors. They cover a host of sex topics, ranging from the obvious to the seemingly minor (though still important). A quick perusal of the table of contents provides a sense of the huge scope of this book.

In each chapter, they provide helpful information in a rather standard form, and they also sprinkle Q&A's throughout the text. This does disrupt the flow of each chapter, but it also keeps it from getting monotonous. I might have preferred the Q&A at the end of each chapter, but that was not a huge issue.

They are extremely frank, and this will undoubtedly make some folks a bit uncomfortable, but this type of forthright reflection is absolutely vital to the important information that they have to offer and understandable coming from authors who talk about sex with others every day. They are very open about their personal sex lives, but it never felt inappropriate, just helpful. And in the midst of this blunt sex talk, they always remained faithful to biblical teaching.

My critiques are twofold. First, I wish that they offered a slightly more critical analysis of some important issues like birth control. Throughout the book, they explain that many birth control options are readily available and effective, without even considering the idea that at least some of those options are abortifacient. I wasn't expecting them to take an anti-birth control perspective, but I was disappointed that they didn't seem to bat an eye at any type of birth control, no matter how invasive and potentially life-ending.

My other issue was that the book was not organized in a very readable fashion. That's why I'd describe it best as a reference book, which might be helpful to refer to when problems or questions arise. But to sit down and read through it was somewhat laborious, and the order of topics led to a somewhat depressing ending. It almost felt like reading a textbook, which is informative but not much fun.

The McBurneys have an awesome vision for what sex can and should be, as created by God. And they do us a favor by offering their insights and perspectives so comprehensively in this book. There are other books that are easier to read, but this is a good one to have on your shelf as a place to turn for some help.
