Pure - Sex and relationships God's way (Book Review)

Pure - Sex and relationships God's way - Linda Marshall - Inter-Varsity Press 2005 - £6.99 Hb 144pp - ISBN 1 84474 0900

How often and how well does the church teach young people about sex and relationships? It is refreshing to see a book that uses a sensitive biblical approach.

This short and readable book is split into six chapters with excellent biblical referencing: Pure Perfection (Genesis 1 and 2), Pure Rebellion (Genesis 3), Pure Planets (Colossians 3), Pure Sex (1 Thessalonians 4), Pure Gifts (1 Corinthians 7) and Pure Forgiveness (Isaiah 53). The final chapter is vital for any book on this topic as, thankfully, God provides hope for all of us when we fail to live life his way.

The book was originally developed from a course offered to students in the Christian Union at Nottingham University. What sets it apart is that it has a website from which materials can be downloaded for running a Pure course. These include PowerPoint presentations, handouts and more. I hope and pray that many of our churches use Pure as a resource for their members. This should result in authentic Christian witness that no longer blends in with our prevailing culture but stands out from it.
