You just Said S-E-X!!!

Warning! If talking about s-e-x makes you uncomfortable then you will be more than a little uncomfortable reading this review and even more so reading this book.

What Are You Waiting For?: The One Thing No One Ever Tells You About SexI really appreciated the way that Dannah Gresh treated sex with respect but dealt with the issues truthfully and frankly. I don’t know that hers was a message that I had never heard before, but it did provide different terminology. Gresh bases her book around the Biblical word for sex between a husband and wife – yada.

As Gresh explains what yada is and what it truly means to experience biblical sex, she also takes time to deal with the many counterfeits for yada that the world is trying to sell us. She talks about how the idea of friends with benefits is flawed in its very principle that you can even have sex without attaching yourself to your sexual partner. Did you know that you are biologically unable to have sex with another person without forming an emotional attachment to them? She talks about same sex attraction and why it happens. Plus she confronts many other common ideas touted by the world and shows the biblical and scientific principles that either refute or confirm them.

You can’t read this book without learning something. I enjoyed this new perspective on sex. The book was well written and easy to follow. It also contained true stories of individuals who have bought into the world’s lies about sex and how they have dealt with the consequences. This book is a great resource for personal or Bible study use. I recommend it to anyone high school age and above, especially Bible study teachers and youth ministers.

A free copy of this book was provided to me by Waterbrook Multnomah Publishing for review purposes.
