Lust is a problem. Our sexualised culture, promising freedom and pleasure, is creating a terrible cocktail of abuse, pain, despair, and suffering. The problem is not simply our actions, but our sinful desires. But there is hope. Christ is more powerful than any lustful desire, any temptation. He has defeated death and sin, and his way leads to true freedom.

Owen is Associate Professor of Christian Theology at MBTS in Kansas City, Missouri. He is the Director of the Center for Public Theology at MBTS and author of ‘Reenchanting Humanity: A Theology of Mankind’.
Pastor Peacock and Scholar Strachan form a rare combination and a dynamic duo in this thoroughly biblical response to the “strong winds of culture” that are blowing. They offer not just a “battle cry”, but also a “declaration of hope”.
Senior Pastor, Antioch Bible Church & President of Shepherds’ Seminary, Johannesburg, South Africa
Technology often only conspires with our wandering and warped passions to leave us in a state of enslavement and despair. However, this trilogy of books points to God’s word as our only hope through its holistic teaching on sexuality and through the gospel of God’s redeeming grace. I cannot too highly recommend a prayerful study of these books. They might prove a life–saver!
Pastor of Kabwata Baptist Church and first Chancellor of the African Christian University, Lusaka, Zambia
Owen Strachan and Gavin Peacock are men full of biblical wisdom and conviction. And that’s precisely what the church needs in this hour. The authors bring their wisdom and conviction to bear in this work as they engage some of the most pressing issues confronting the church. I heartily recommend this work to every gospel minister—and the church members they serve.

This series directly applies biblical truth to urgent matters of human sexuality, and does so with both pastoral sensitivity and theological integrity. All too often the church fails to respond to sexual sin with both compassion and clarity. This series does both, and does so with courage, verve, and an ever–present reminder that Jesus Christ is making all things new.
