Tough Topic Answered

February 22, 2013

One of the least discussed topics in church is healthy, Biblical sexuality. Many couples struggle in this area and do not feel as if they can approach their pastor about the issue. It also seems to be a rare topic during premarital preparation leaving the newlyweds to figure it out on the honeymoon. This is not the ideal situation. In churches we preach the “should not’s” of sexuality frequently and loudly. Where are the “should’s”?

Filling in where churches have left a vacuum is Dr. Kevin Lehman with his book Sheet Music: Uncovering the Secrets of Sexual Intimacy in Marriage (Tyndale House Publishers, 2003). In this book, Lehman uncovers healthy sexuality in the church and provides Biblical counsel for believers regarding intimacy in their marriage. He brings this topic out of the dark closet and into the light, celebrating it as the gift it is.

This book covers a variety of topics from sexual positions to which activities are permissible for Christians. He dedicates a chapter to men assisting them to learn more about the chemistry of their wives and there is a chapter which decodes the oddness of men for their wives. He provides principles for application while dealing with specific questions and issues. All the while he reflects on Scripture to support his positional stands.

This book is wonderful for a married couple who is struggling with their sexual intimacy. You can read it and discuss it in the privacy of your home. This is also a good idea for a couple going through premarital counseling. While its use would be a little different than if you were already married, it can still be of great help and preparation for the honeymoon. Go find this book at your local LifeWay, order it from Amazon or load it to your Kindle.
