💥😲I have been making my way through this book and let me tell you, it just put the leaders of the church on notice!⚠️
We have been indoctrinated by the thinking that what happens in the bedroom of married couples is for his satisfaction, his desires, and his demands. Well, 20,000+ women, most of them Christian women, say “No more!” 👎🏻
We want love AND respect. We want to be seen. We want to be more valuable to our husbands than to service his animal desires. And we want to know that you will be just as helpful in the partnership of marriage.
No more putting all the weight of male sun on female shoulders. We are not the reason you can’t keep your stuff together.
On that note, we still love our husbands. We want to have joyful unions and work together through this life with you. The teachings of the last thirty years has to be eradicated from our marriages and GOD’S word needs to be put in the right place. He designed marriage to be a beautiful dance of giving and receiving between husband and wife. A partnership like that between Christ and the church.
Now, that all said, this book is written in a way that both husbands and wives can read it together and discuss the topics while they work on improving marriage the way God designed it. Women should not read this and then beat their husbands over the head with the information. I say that because I would have done that at one time. The authors have put together discussion questions for you and your spouse to go over as well as some practical application 😉.
After over fifteen years of helping couples have better sex lives, we’ve realized that a lot of problems are not caused by a lack of good information–they’re caused by believing bad teachings. So we did a study of over 20,000 women to figure out which teachings were harmful and which were helpful to help couples learn the truth about sex from a Jesus-centered worldview.

About the book
What if it’s not your fault that sex is bad in your marriage?
Based on a groundbreaking in-depth survey of 22,000 Christian women, The Great Sex Rescue unlocks the secrets to what makes some marriages red hot while others fizzle out. Generations of women have grown up with messages about sex that make them feel dirty, used, or invisible, while men have been sold such a cheapened version of sex, they don’t know what they’re missing. The Great Sex Rescue hopes to turn all of that around, developing a truly biblical view of sex where mutuality, intimacy, and passion reign.
The Great Sex Rescue pulls back the curtain on what is happening in Christian bedrooms and exposes the problematic teachings that wreck sex for so many couples–and the good teachings that leave others breathless. In the #metoo and #churchtoo era, not only is this book a long overdue corrective to church culture, it is poised to free thousands of couples from repressive and dissatisfying sex lives so that they can experience the kind of intimacy and wholeness God intended
