Item description for Is It Lust or Legalism? by Brad Watson...
Overview A recent survey indicated that 90% of Christians questioned, struggle with lust. What really is lust? Is all sexual desire, attraction, and arousal sinful? What about about masturbation and sexual fantasy? In Is it Lust or Legalism? Discerning the Differences between Sexuality, Sensuality & Sin, Pastor Brad Watson looks again at these pertinent questions from a fresh perspective. Sexuality and sensuality are not intrinsically evil, and should be integrated together with a highlycommitted, Christ-centered faith. This breakthrough book exposes the poor anti-body, anti-sex, antipleasure theology that has historically steeped the Church in legalism, separated her unnecessarily from culture, and hindered her from impacting the world. God's people are challenged to embrace an "incarnational Christianity"-filled with grace and freed from legalism-which beckons normal, culturally-relevant, 21st century people into a world-impacting, radical witness for Christ.

Reviews - What do customers think about Is It Lust or Legalism??
thought provoking Feb 22, 2006
I was greatly challenged and liberated by reading this book. This author is not afraid to challenge the "taboos" of this day. It was an easy read, but it was certainly thought provoking!
It is a challenging and thought-provoking experience! Oct 17, 2002
This book challenges you to break out of the typical christian paradigm of what is right and what is wrong! This book makes you struggle with what is "the heart of the matter". It is an easy book to read in one sitting, but it will cause you to think for weeks! Author Brad Watson does an excellent job at laying out a concise argument for how much of the church has settled for a list of rules and regulations, when God really wants to get at people's hearts. Watson is not afraid to hit at some "sacred cows", so that many people can be set free from the trappings of legalism! He suggests that maybe God is not as uptight about things, as many preachers suggest. God seems to be more uptight with judgmental preachers (that put heavy weights on people) than he is with "every day struggling people" who are wanting to know Him!
