Lutheran author Mary Kuhlmann Antholz has a book out that I am very excited about: God’s Word about Sex and Related Topics! This is, God-willing, the first of two. This volume goes from creation through the return from Babylon!
I haven’t finished reading it but I am so encouraged to see a book trying to address seriously every mention related to these topics!
It’s 160 pages.
Here’s the Amazon blurb:
The Bible speaks of sex in its very first chapter. “Be fruitful and multiply” was an important component of God’s blessing to Adam and Eve. Because sex was part of God’s very good creation, Satan delights in attacking that portion of our being. Unfortunately, he has caused a great deal of confusion, even among Christians, concerning God’s thoughts on this subject.
God’s Word about Sex presents an encyclopedic review of all that God says about sex in the first half of the Bible. It introduces the reader to God’s instructions for this part of our lives. It catalogs the blessings of obeying and the consequences of ignoring His directives. Then it applies this knowledge to our world today.
Those verses are displayed within a framework of Old Testament history, for the characters of the Bible were real people. Therefore, it also shows that even the heroes of the faith had problems in this area. After all, just like us, they were human.
Nearly one-third of this book is directly quoted from Scripture, so the relevant texts will be right at your fingertips.
It’s an important and timely subject. Come, let’s explore God’s Word together.
It’s on my kindle and I look forward to reading it!!!
Thanks for pursuing this and putting this together, Mary! What a blessing!
