Mother and daughter authors tackle the media's blatant approach to sexuality and its impact on today's youth.

Community Description
Mother and daughter authors tackle the media's blatant approach to sexuality and its impact on today's youth. Frank and informative regarding the onslaught of sexual promiscuity and perversion in the media.

This book is an essential resource in helping your children develop healthy, godly attitudes toward sexuality in an age when sex is a marketing tool for everything from clothing to toothpaste. Gleaning from interviews with various youth culture authorities, movie reviewers, youth pastors from across the nation, and teens themselves, the authors have created an informative book to educate and help you guide your children through today's maze of sexual confusion. This book is peppered with statistics, teen language and context, and facts about the media's promotion of sexual freedom that destroys the sanctity that makes marital sex a special gift from God.

Reviews - What do customers think about Sex, Lies, and the Media?

The Fab-Duo!   Oct 9, 2006
A must-have for all parents! With new studies out about how much time Americans spend in DAILY tv watching, this book is a MUST-HAVE! This mother and daughter duo have done a fantastic job weaving together interesting insights, scads of historical references and genuine Biblical discernment in discussing the affects of media on our worldview. Besides tv and movies, the authors also discuss the influence of other forms of media including magazines and music (a real "biggie" when it comes to the impact music has on us!)

I liked the conversational style of this book where the style and voice of each author shines through. There are ample side-bars to highlight interesting tid-bits, study data, and pithy quotes. You can tell that they did their homework and there are excellent resources in the back of the book. The appendices are very insightful as well; highlighting real conversations with parents and teens. As the mother of a young child, I found this book to be very insightful.
Mandatory for parents, teachers and youth leaders  May 28, 2006
Sex, Lies and the Media is the most honest book available for parents, teachers and youth leaders about how the media is slowly chipping away at moral decency in our country. While it lays out the problem, it also provides practical helps for parents, such as reviews of popular teen magazines. As a high school teacher I highly recommend it!

great resource for pedagogical arguments on sex in the Media  Feb 4, 2006
This is a must read for anyone who cares about cultural trends affecting our society. Eva Marie Everson and Jessica give information and tools to equip people for healthy, godly sexuality especially related to navigating through the barrage of subtle and overt message that bombard our culture.

This book is filled with candid insight illustrated with stories that draw you in and documented research providing crucial information about media's affect on sexuality especially in the United States. Though it targets young adults and brings perspective from them and their parents' generation, it relates to anyone effected by media in the American culture.

Having taught personal health at the college level and engaged adults of all ages in sex health related conversation, I recommend this book for anyone who talks openly about sexual topics with adults as well as youth. Many people of all ages seem to lack awareness in some of the import issues "Sex, Lies and the Media" exposes.

While earning my MA in communication from the University of Central Florida, I studied media and found some of the points made in this book on media albeit controversial in some circles. I wish I had, had this resource to strengthen my pedagogical arguments with my media professor.

To impact people in ways that could protect them from harm, we must use wisdom and sensitivity in approaching the sexual topics with confidence. This relevant book will help the reader do so where media is concerned.
Should Be Required Reading  Nov 19, 2005
Sex, Lies, and the Media should be required reading for every parent, grandparent, youth minister, teacher, and adult who crosses paths with teens today. This book will increase understanding between the generations and better equip adults to guide youth who are growing up in the confusion of today's society. On the issues of today, the reader is given dual perspective: that of the adult from Eva Marie and that of a teen from her daughter Jessica. The two-sided perspective gives each generation an idea of how to respond to the other in a positive way. Sex, Lies, and the Media also includes great resource lists of ministries, websites, and others helps for adults who are guiding teens as they grow into responsible, Christian adults.
Once I started reading, I couldn't put this book down. I wanted to know everything Eva Marie could tell me so I could better understand what teens today have to deal with. But don't take my word for it, buy the book and read it!
Excellent! Must read!  Aug 15, 2005
I do not know Eva Marie personally, however, feel like I know her now after reading her book. This is a must read for all parents and parents to be, as well as grandparents and grandparents to be. Our childre have long since left home, and I can identify with the need for parents to really get into the lives of their children. Taking for granted is not an option as she and her daughter so plainly tell. By the Grace and Mercy of Jesus Christ, families can and will survive the tug-of-war of this world. Thank you Eva for such a great and informative book!....Scott McCurdy<><
