Críticas:

"Good Christian Sex" shows what openminded, sex-positive encounters with the holy can and should look like. McCleneghan s tour de force is a reckoning with Christian tradition and an absolute delight to read. A must-read for anyone who wants to engage their heart, soul, and bodies. --Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg, author of "The Passionate Torah: Sex and Judaism""

"Good Christian Sex" is an important corrective to the unhealthy ways we imagine bodies, pleasure, and sin. Our conceptions of sexuality are mostly tied up in the traditions of religion, and Bromleigh is a wonder at untying difficult knots. I will be passing this along to friends. --Rev. Julian "J.Kwest" DeShazier, Senior Minister at University Church Chicago, Adjunct Professor at University of Chicago Divinity School and at McCormick Theological Seminary"

McCleneghan offers a provocative alternative to the tired conversations about sex in Christian culture. Read Good Christian Sex if you desire a broader, practical conversation about sex, and a redemptive way of living out intimacy in all our relationships. --Rev. Mihee Kim-Kort, author of Yoked: Stories of a Clergy Couple in Marriage, Ministry, and Family"

McCleneghan might surprise you. She s like an uncommonly wise, witty, and faithful big sister, telling you just enough of her story to help you figure out the contours of your own. I can t imagine a more liberating invitation for Christians to receive the good and gracious gift of sexuality. --Katherine Willis Pershey, Associate Minister of First Congregational Church and author of Any Day a Beautiful Change and Very Married: Field Notes on Love & Fidelity"

In seminary, a professor asked where we d learned about sex. Nobody in that group of churchy young adults mentioned church. McClenehgan has written the book we ve needed all along; it s funny, honest, vulnerable, intelligent and challenging, and loving. It s for friends, lovers, partners, spouses, pastors, parents and very likely, you. --Rev. Heidi Neumark, Trinity Lutheran Church, and author of Hidden Inheritance: Family Secrets, Memory, and Faith"

A must-read for anyone who wants to engage their heart, soul, and bodies. --Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg, author of The Passionate Torah: Sex and Judaism"

I ve read books with sex and Christian in the title before and know the formula--dish out mortal shame, add fanciful gender stereotypes, and mix in some unrealistic puritanical expectations. But McCleneghan defied my worries with Good Christian Sex and left me with a faithful celebration of intimacy and pleasure. --Carol Howard Merritt, Pastor and Columnist for the Christian Century"

When we attempt to repress or sublimate our desires and human needs, accept the shame or condemnation of our humanity as embodied creatures, this does not connect us with God. In fact, this is when we begin to run into trouble, McCleneghan explains. --Beliefnet"

McCleneghan argues against a rule-based look at biblical purity and opens up the scripture to a more holistic approach. --The Washington Post "Acts of Faith" Blog"

Reseña del editor:

Moving beyond the deep-seated cultural feelings of shame that have long fueled the conflict between Christianity and sex--and the belief that there is only one right and valid way to practice one's sexuality--this renowned University of Chicago pastor uses enlightening personal stories and examples from theology to show how sex is powerful and holy.

For years, Christians have been told to adhere to one singular path when it comes to sex: abstinence and purity. Yet this limited focus ignores the reality that people's sexual and romantic lives differ widely, even among those who consider themselves devout believers. Church leaders have often refused to address the topic--or have preached in ways that are harmful to the emotional and spiritual growth of the faithful in the pews.

Pastor McCleneghan is determined to reshape the issue--and fundamentally transcend this disconnect between sexuality and spirituality that has left many Christians feeling guilty and sinful. Written in her measured, non-judgmental voice, Good Christian Sex combines humorous personal anecdotes with theological research to transform how Christians think and talk about this basic human need, offering a new understanding that reconciles human love and religious faith.

Breaking with outdated conventions, McCleneghan explains how the Bible and Christian tradition inform our beliefs about desire, pleasure, nudity, fidelity, premarital sex, and the variety of sexual practices, and encourages Christians to talk about their bodies, their sensuality, and their longings in a frank, positive, and realistic way. Warm, insightful, and honest, Good Christian Sex is a message of hope, that at last lifts the veil of shame felt by many religious people.
