Living With Your Passions
In a hyper-sexualized culture, sex is either reduced to pleasure-seeking or conflated with our identity. But God designed us as sexual beings for emotional and spiritual intimacy whose highest calling is to worship Him. In this revised edition, Pastor Erwin Lutzer draws on forty years of ministry experience to present a rationale for sexual purity. He gives an honest answer to the sexual pressures we face like extramarital relationships, self-gratification, same-sex attraction, and more. As desire-driven creatures, we don't have to pursue happiness at the expense of character. With our identity grounded in Christ, we can live victoriously with our passions.

How have you experienced the effects of a father’s influence—for good or bad? Israel’s King David was a great leader, a “man after God’s own heart.” But he was a lousy father. The Bible provides an honest portrayal of David, including the great damage he caused by his failure as a dad.

Much of the anguish in today’s families can be traced to fractured relationships between fathers and their children. Can we open those clenched fists and hearts, restoring both dialogue and love? Can we work to mend the broken ties with our fathers?

Some think ideal women have perfect hair or complexions. But we should forget the airbrushed profiles and focus instead on the Bible’s description of a truly godly woman.
