Books I Recommend: Sex

Here are books I recommend on the subject of sex and sexuality. You may also wish to consider recommendations on pornography and homosexuality.

Top Recommendation

What Is the Meaning of Sex? by Denny Burk.

What Is The Meaning of Sex? is a wide-ranging treatment of what the Bible says about sex and sexuality. This is not a guide to a better marriage and certainly not a bedroom how-to. Instead, it is a book that addresses sex in the big picture—the biggest possible picture—by discovering the ultimate purpose for sex and, from there, its many implications.

Other Recommendations

  • Undefiled by Harry Schaumburg – Schaumburg’s particular strength and ministry is in recovery from sexual sin. This book is ideal for hurting spouses who are attempting to recover together.
  • Sex and the Supremacy of Christ edited by John Piper – This is a collection of topical messages from a Desiring God conference.
  • Sexual Sanity For Men by David White – This book is specifically designed for men who need to rebuild healthy sexuality. Also consider Sexual Sanity for Women by Ellen Dykas (Amazon).

Though I have not reviewed it, I recommend Ed Wheat’s Intended for Pleasure for couples struggling with sex within marriage.
