Item description for Authentic Human Sexuality: An Integrated Christian Approach by Judith K. Balswick & Jack O. Balswick...

Overview
Sex pervades our culture, going far beyond the confines of the bedroom and spilling over into the workplace, the church and the media. Yet despite all the attention and even obsession devoted to sex, human sexuality remains confusing and even foreboding. What, after all, is authentic human sexuality? That is the question Judith and Jack Balswick set out to answer in this wide-ranging and probing book. Informed by sociology, psychology and theology, the Balswicks investigate how human sexuality originates both biologically and socially, lay groundwork for a normative Christian interpretation of sexuality, show how authentic sexuality is necessarily grounded in relationships, and explore such forms of "inauthentic sexuality" as sexual harassment, pornography and rape. Since its first publication in 1999, Authentic Human Sexuality has established itself as a standard text at numerous colleges and seminaries. While maintaining the book's overall structure, this new paper edition offers updated discussions and bibliographies throughout, including a completely new chapter on sexual development throughout the human lifespan and a substantially revised chapter on sexual beings in relationship that incorporates a trinitarian theological perspective. A new generation of students, pastors, psychologists and sociologists engaged in counseling will be indebted to the Balswicks for this updated study of this endlessly fascinating and perplexing facet of human identity.

Important Reading for Christians  Sep 21, 2007
The physical quality of the book was very good. I got value for my money in every way. I would recommend this to anyone who has a need to understand human sexuality in general and specifically from a Christian perspective.

This was a Good Book  Apr 19, 2007
This book is built on research, so Christian or not you will learn and understand the developing sexuality in today's society! This books takes on topics anywhere from Homosexuality to Sexual Abuse and Marital Sexuality. If you are looking for a book just to understand a little more or for a good research book, this is the one!! This is a good book for parents up to psychologists. A MUST READ!!!
 
Don't waste your time  Mar 20, 2006
There are real studies of human sexuality out there. This text is just the same narrow-minded Christian garbage parading as real science--an increasingly common phenomenon in our culture.
