Item description for Sex 180: The Next Revolution by Chip Ingram & Tim Walker...
Overview With solid biblical teaching, interactive sidebars, and real-life stories, teens, parents, and youth leaders are certain to think about sex in a whole new way.
Publishers Description Young adults are fed up with our sex-saturated culture. They realize that there's more to sex than what the media feeds them, and they realize that there's more to responsibility that "just wait until you're married." Youth want to have God's perspective. Not only that, they want to show their peers there's a better way to relate to the opposite sex. It's time for a revolution. A 180-degree turn is underway. Sex 180 is a guide to that revolution. It's more than a book that preaches abstinence before marriage. Sex 180 shows teens what's wrong with the way people talk and think about sex and challenges them to think differently. With solid biblical teaching, interactive sidebars, and real-life stories, teens, parents, and youth leaders will start to think about sex in a whole new way.
Community Description Sex is everywhere . . .
On TV. In movies. On the Web. In magazines. In high school and even youth group.
Yet even with all of this exposure, a big part of the sex story is not being told-a whole dimension that goes way beyond the traditional answers. If you're fed up with our sex-saturated culture and are tired of being told to "just wait until you're married," then check out the biblical understanding of sexuality. It's something totally different. A full 180 degrees different. It's Sex 180 and it's a revolution.
Dive in and hang on, because this book will turn everything you know about sex upside down. Turn the pages and join the rebellion against our culture's view of sex and grab onto what God really says about it all. You'll relate to the opposite sex in a whole new way, and you'll never be the same again. Maybe your world won't be either.
Endorsements: "Our society has been so sexualized that exposure to unwholesome sexual impressions has become as common as secondhand smoke. This "secondhand sex" is killing our young generation, and Sex 180 is a cure by helping them see sex and relationships in a radically different perspective than the secular world does."--Ron Luce, author, Battle Cry for a Generation; president, Teen Mania Ministries
"When you live by God's word, you can change your world."--Justin Lookadoo, speaker; coauthor, Dateable
Reviews: "This radical book on sex is a must for all upper teenagers and young 20s. It is convincing in motivating the reader to handle sex God's way, not society's way."--Christianity magazine

One Book Any Adolescent Kid Will Read Feb 28, 2006
We had a conference at our Church that was based partly on this book, I was very impressed with the conference and so was my 15-year old son. So much so, that the minute we got home I ordered the book, not only for my son but for my teenage niece and nephew.
My sister said that she couldn't get my niece and nephew to read anything, that I had just wasted my money. Boy, was she surprised! Not only did they read it, they couldn't put it down! Neither could my son.
Now, I have to admit that I have not read the book, I have just flipped through it. But, I know that the book has made a difference in the way the kids think about pre-marital sex and waiting. They more clearly see the positive things that come from waiting, and aren't so worried about peer pressure. I wish I had had this book when I was a teenager!
Every adolescent should read this book, it is very direct and talks about almost every aspect of sexuality that is out there, every day, in front of our children. They are surrounded by sex, it's in movies, music, television, radio, school and church, isn't it time they see it from a different perspective, not one swayed by ratings and childish notions.
