Overview A RADICAL FREEDOM
God has set us free - and at great cost - but many Christians live in self-imposed bondage. Rather than delighting in God's lavish grace, they are fearful of igniting his displease.
As author Steve Brown explains in this brave, new book, too many Christians don't trust freedom - for themselves or others. They prefer the security of manmade regulations to the adventure of freedom. The implications of freedom, Brown asserts, can sometimes be dangerous; but the alternative is deadly: a life without joy and void of celebration of our unique gifts in Christ.
Each riveting chapter explores a common freedom - stifling tendency, then opens the door to the fresh air of remedial liberty. Chapter titles include:
The Perfection We Desire. . .and the Forgiveness That Sets Us Free The Masks We Wear. . .and the Authenticity That Sets Us Free The Boldness We Fear. . .and the Courage That Sets Us Free The Failure We Foster. . .and the Victory That Sets Us Free
Dare to explore the joys of biblical freedom. Open the pages of this book and begin a journey that will set you free - really and truly and completely free.

Reviews - What do customers think about No Time for Sex: Finding the Time You Need for Getting the Love You Want?
Worth the Read Nov 28, 2005
I was shocked to read the review on this book.. I don't think that reader gave it some serious thought. If you are not MAKING time for sex I am sure you are making time to do other things such as reading.
This book was helpful to give you some ideas about how to keep your love life fresh. It was good to remind you of how to keep the emotions and fire burning even without the physical contact we all USED to have time for before children. I think taking a couple of hours to read this book was well worth the cost and time spent.
I especially loved the tips on how to make sure your mate knows you still care. Who doesn't need to hear that sometimes?
A strange mix of priorities and time management Nov 25, 2004
So, let me get this straight here. If I am one of those people who have no time for sex, I am going to have time to read a book about it? This is perhaps the most serious flaw here. I can see a book with cool pictures, but why would anyone in their right mind rather read this book about not having sex, than just go and do it already? If you are one of these people I suspect there are more issues than "time" keeping you from getting some action.
If I had the time to read this book, I could surely get some serious "relations" going right? Even if I spent an average of 10 minutes "hooking up" (this would include of course time spent actually getting undressed) then in the time it takes to read this book I could become somewhat of an expert in various positions. This book doesn't really help me there.
So, the book has some good ideas, but the best idea is this: put down the book, grab your spouse and get busy. In fact, I suggest leaving this book out on your coffee table, it will shame your spouse into one or two encounters at least just by the title. Now that makes it a worthwhile buy.
