Sex in a Broken World: How Christ Redeems What Sin DistortsISBN: 9781433556654
We live in a deeply broken world . . . but there is hope.
Sexuality is a fundamental part of what it means to be human-part of God's beautiful design when he created all things. And yet, sex in our world today looks nothing like the way that God intended it to be. Sexual brokenness surrounds us and, in one way or another, affects us all.
This sexual brokenness reveals our deep need for redemption-something quick fixes, mere behavior modification, or a set of rules can't provide. Honest and direct yet kind and caring, this book points us to the only place we can find help for sexual brokenness-the transforming grace of Jesus Christ. Only this grace offers hope for a life of freedom, purity, and joy as God intended.

"Paul Tripp has dealt with many important issues common to Christians. Now he takes up another, in his customarily engaging style. This time, he addresses what is perhaps the most important moral issue of the church today: sexual brokenness." --Ronald J. DeHaas, CEO, Covenant Eyes, Inc.
"Sexual insanity has taken over our world, so we need sane counsel from a wise counselor. Paul points us to Christ, grounds us in truth, and navigates a pathway through the craziness. Would you expect anything less from Paul Tripp?" --Deepak Reju, Pastor of Biblical Counseling and Family Ministry, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington, DC; author, The Pastor and Counseling and She's Got the Wrong Guy
"Once again, Paul Tripp has graciously and pastorally applied the comfort and challenge of the gospel to the street-level reality of our lives. This time, with Sex in a Broken World, sexuality and relationships are unpacked and explained in a way that leads readers to be gently discipled, not scolded or made to feel shame. I am so grateful for a book that I can recommend to women, who, like men, need the hope and wisdom of Christ applied to this aspect of their humanity!" --Ellen Mary Dykas, Women's Ministry Coordinator, Harvest USA; editor, Sexual Sanity for Women
