Saturday Snippets (September 11)

As well as reading a lot of books, I also read a ton of articles every week. Here are some of the articles that I’ve read recently and have found interesting, helpful, challenging and encouraging. I hope that they will be the same for you, my dear readers…

Let’s Talk About Sex

Sex: it’s a really interesting topic in the Christian world; it’s either never talked about and is a bit like a taboo or it’s talked about too much and is a bit like an obsession. Historically the church hasn’t done a great job of talking about and teaching on sex. This has changed in theContinue reading “Let’s Talk About Sex”

Complementarity Must Be Divorced From Culture

Complementary, a word or school of thought that can split a room I’m in two. An understanding that can lead (in the extreme) one Christian to doubt the faith of another. Complementarity, a view of the two sexes that is hated by many people, including Christians.

These are big issues that every Christian probably has an opinion on, but whereContinue reading “Tough Issues, True Hope”

Books about sex for people of all ages to read and learn; teenagers, students, parents, pastors, married couples, youth groups, books about how to teach your kids about sex andContinue reading “Sex; a taboo or a hobby horse?”

Books about the bedroom…

Over the last few years there have been tons and tons of books written on the topic of sexuality from a Christian perspective. It’s a topic that I’ve read a lot about, but not one that I necessarily post about a lot. One of the reasons that I don’t post often about is that sexualityContinue reading “Books about the bedroom…”

Some of the books I’ve read recently…

One of the joys of reading the amount of material that I do is that I get to devour tons and tons of knowledge. One of the downsides is that I can’t always write full reviews on every book. If I reviewed every book I read, I’d need to make this my full-time job! ButContinue reading “Some of the books I’ve read recently…”

Guest post: 5 books that have impacted me…

Today I’m doing something I’ve never done before; a guest post. Ciarán is a friend of mine and a fellow man in ministry in Scotland. Here he touches on some great books, some of which I’ve read and some that I haven’t. My name is Ciarán Kelleher.
