Here’s a book you do not want to judge by its cover. (Seriously, Zondervan, what were you thinking?) Loveology: God, love, marriage, sex and the never-ending story of male and female by John Mark Comer is good stuff. Very good.
Since the beginning when God created man and woman and proclaimed their union as good, the devil set out to distort man’s understanding of love and sex. Culture has played its part in idolizing the concept of love—so much so that even Christians can become confused about this topic. Hollywood’s lies, which deny the negative consequences that arise when love is distorted and sex used outside of God’s original design, have destroyed lies. Loveology debunks the myths and sets it straight.
Using Scripture, statistics and modern-day illustrations, Comer showcases God’s intent in the man-woman relationship and shows why it makes sense. Since God is love, He knows best how it works. Loveology expounds this truth and provides pragmatic, biblical teaching in which no love-related topic is taboo, including pre-marital sex, masturbation, homosexuality, dating, marriage, divorce…
