Honoring God, Relationships, and Sex
by Dr. John Thorington
For ages 15 and up
War has been declared, and every teen needs a plan of action for living pure on this epic battlefield. Teens today are confronted with a culture of online pornography, chat rooms, sexting, and sex on demand. The enemy attacks the young, hoping to wound and leave them destroyed. But there is hope.
Pure Teens is a valuable, practical resource for every Christian teen about relationships and sex—and why they are such a big deal to God. Not one to shy away from edgy topics, John candidly shares:
·the groundbreaking science that explains the addictive power of cybersex
·straight talk about masturbation and pornography
·a battle plan for living porn-free, with sexual integrity
·a positive perspective about sacred sex
·the keys to a lifetime of fulfilling intimacy
·how to live boldly while honoring God
Each of the chapters in Pure Teens will help teens figure out God’s roadmap for making decisions about how to honor Him, relationships, and sex. Parents and counselors will also find tested and proven successful steps young people can take to live lives of godly freedom and integrity.
