Wonderful Insight Mar 24, 2006
I am the Executive Director of ParadiseWeddings.org a premiere destination wedding service located in Honolulu, Hawaii. I recently attended a conference with Dr. Cliff & Joyce Penner where I was introduced to this book for the first time.
After reading this book, I purchased 100 copies of it and have begun giving them out to all of our clients so they can read it before we perform their wedding ceremony. This is absolutely the best reference that I have found in my 15 years of performing marriages and conducting couples counseling to answer some hard to ask questions from Christians about sex.
I hope that Every new couple has a chance to read this book before they are married. It just may save many marriages.
Helpful Dec 1, 2004
I read this book two months before I got married, and found it helpful for me. I prefer it over Tim LaHaye's book "The Act of Marriage" and Ed Wheat's "Intended For Pleasure". It was Biblical and covered the physical, psychological, and spiritual matters of sex. This book will help remove misconceptions about sex. My advice to any man getting married and purchasing this book is to make sure your future spouse reads it also, BEFORE you get married, regardless of her sexual past. The reason I say this is I could not get my wife to read this book, and she still holds on to her misconceptions.
A Real Treat Jan 25, 2004
I just bought this book recently, and I think it's just great. I'm engaged, and although I'm not completely inexperienced, I was wondering what to do on my wedding night. This book is the best that I've read so far. They lay it all out, as naked as you'll be on your honeymoon! The authors don't skirt around their complete discussion of different sexual topics.
Although this is definitely a Christian book, you never get the feeling that the authors are moralizing or condemning you for things you have done in your past, or choose to do in your marriage. The drawings are very dry and clinical, and the text needs some editing. However, this still doesn't detract from the overall quality of the book. Especially if you're a virgin and are a little apprehensive of the first time, I would highly recommend this book.
Great information for first timers! Mar 14, 2002
I liked this book a lot because it gives information about sex from a Christian perspective. Unlike other books on sex, it gives detailed information about the first time, how to prepare for your honeymoon, the first night together, etc. It even gives advice about how to prepare physically for that night. Very informative.
Finally an informative and biblical volume on sex! Aug 15, 2001
Its refreshing to see a book based on scripture, which doesn't beat around the bush concerning this sensitive subject. Penner and Penner cover a variety of areas. This would make a great wedding gift for any couple.
