Sex and the Cynics

Sex and the Cynics: Talking About the Search for LoveLove: one of the deepest longings of the human heart, yet increasingly viewed with cynicism. Many people have been hurt too often to believe in love any more, or they just think that it can never last – and they settle for sex as an end in itself. How can Christians say that we were made for love – and that God loves us – in a context like this? Sex and the Cynics: Talking About the Search for Love (Damaris, 2005) is an accessible and exciting introduction to thinking about these issues.
