Sex and the Cynics: Talking About the Search for Love

The Salvation Army published a very positive review which you can read on their website. Here's the blurb and contents of the first book in the Talking About series.

Love: 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 is an accessible and exciting introduction to thinking about these issues.
