Description

The 1960s heralded a sexual revolution, transforming society's vision for sex and relationships. With an appealing narrative of freedom and authenticity, the revolution won the hearts and minds of many. The church's leaders and faltering apologists seemed overwhelmed. And biblical Christians tended to react defensively rather than offering a compelling vision of their own. Many young Christians were questioning whether the Gospel really is good news in this area.

But what if we faced up honestly to our sub-Christian culture of shame? Reimagined what it means to made sexual in the image of God? Remembered that we flourish when we live in harmony with God's design? And left behind the broken promises of the sexual revolution to tell a better story of our own?

I will tell a better story

As a pastor I am convinced after reading Harrison's book of his sound arguments regarding the failed state of the Church today to adequately proclaim a valid and opposing argument in the face of the roar of the Sexual Revolution begun in 1960s. He lays out the methods and means by which the Sexual Revolution begun and continues to this day. Harrison rightly points to a Church with no better story to tell than its failed attempts 50 years ago in the face of the free sex advocates, empty protagonists of the impotent, dangerous and destructive sexual movements. Advocates that have left our nations cast aside from the promise of God's blessings. Harrison does not stop there amidst the disgust or our failures. He points in great detail to the picture or story already laid out for the Church in the Scripture that we are to tell. I am convinced that I will tell a better story.
