But get ready for a whole new paradigm in this incredibly important book. Dr. Slattery is, in my opinion, one of the most articulate, thought-provoking, clear-thinking writers and speakers on genuine intimacy on the planet.”

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – In a world of gender confusion, pornography addiction, and relational brokenness, psychologist Dr. Juli Slattery challenges Christians to understand that sexuality is not a problem to solve but a territory to reclaim.
In Rethinking Sexuality: God’s Design and Why It Matters,
(Multnomah, July 24, 2018)
Dr. Slattery addresses the fact that “for far too long, Christianity has not represented a safe place” for people to find help or healing related to sexuality. Acknowledging that sexual topics are often controversial and painful, Dr. Slattery inspires readers to see sexuality as the God-given gift that it is. That means bringing conversations about sexual addiction, intimacy in marriage, shame, same-sex attraction, and abstinence back into the church—instead of allowing conversations about sex to happen everywhere but
in the church.
“One day it dawned on me. We have been sexually discipled by the world,” Slattery writes. “A tidal wave of sexual confusion and brokenness has swept over us, but this is just the beginning. The percentages of those addicted, traumatized, confused, and in bondage will exponentially increase in the days to come…The body of Christ is in desperate need of mature Christians who are rooted in both God’s unchanging truth about sexuality and His life-changing love toward humanity.”
God is calling Christians to reclaim sexuality from a culture that claimed his good gift for its own. Rethinking Sexuality
provides a powerful look at how sexual healing and true freedom begin with knowing God’s love and reclaiming what he always intended for good.
Dr. Slattery address topics such as:
· How sexuality is rooted in the broader context of God’s heart for us
· The bigger picture of sexual challenges and wholeness
· Why everyone is sexually broken
· Why it’s important for Christians to shift the challenge from combating sexual problems to proclaiming and modeling sacred sexuality
"The church may be teaching us what
to think about sex, but the world is training us how
to think about sex," states Dr. Slattery. Rethinking Sexuality
offers a solution to equip the average Christian in addressing the onslaught of sexual questions and confusion in todays world.
