Track Christian Life - A Student’s Guide to Dating, Marriage & SexISBN: 9781527109667
A young person's entry into biblical views of relationships.
Chastity is a word that isn't used much these days, but it means exercising sexual self-control in line with the moral teachings of the Bible. It means honoring God, respecting others, and embracing the liberating beauty of God's order. But how do we do that in today's recreational dating culture? And how do we think about dating and, ultimately, marriage? David Ayers has written this helpful little book to help you think through these questions, and understand why this is such an important part of the Christian life.
TRACK is a series of books designed to disciple the next generation in the areas of culture, doctrine & the Christian life. While the topics addressed aren't always that simple, they are communicated in a manner that is.
