Publisher's Summary

What if it's not your fault that sex is bad in your marriage?

Based on a groundbreaking in-depth survey of 22,000 Christian women, The Great Sex Rescue unlocks the secrets to what makes some marriages red hot while others fizzle out. Generations of women have grown up with messages about sex that make them feel dirty, used, or invisible, while men have been sold such a cheapened version of sex, they don't know what they're missing. The Great Sex Rescue hopes to turn all of that around, developing a truly biblical view of sex where mutuality, intimacy, and passion reign.

The Great Sex Rescue pulls back the curtain on what is happening in Christian bedrooms and exposes the problematic teachings that wreck sex for so many couples-and the good teachings that leave others breathless. In the #MeToo and #ChurchToo era, not only is this book a long overdue corrective to church culture, it is poised to free thousands of couples from repressive and dissatisfying sex lives so that they can experience the kind of intimacy and wholeness God intended.

Contains mature themes.

Actually worth the read

This book is surprising well written. It actually takes the Bible’s perspective of sex with out manipulating it. I also really appreciate the statistics they used to back up their claims

A pro-woman book that’s good for everyone!

I SO appreciate the blood, sweat, tears and RESEARCH that went into this life-giving, freedom-promoting book! I internalized all the harmful messages you all discuss in this book without even realizing it, and it very negatively affected my marriage. I feel like we’re getting a 2nd chance at a do-over! I’m married to an amazing guy who didn’t grow up with the weird evangelical sex teachings, thank God, and he is so on board with this……and is way ahead of me in staying up to date on your podcasts, as well! Thank you, thank you for being willing to poke the hornets nest of “christian”patriarchy! Stay strong, we are behind you and promoting your message to everyone in our sphere!

Great teaching

I listened to this book at the perfect time. My oldest child is entering the pre-teen years, and I am forever grateful that I have these tools in my belt to empower all my kids to respect themselves and the other gender as they grow.

It was also a breath of fresh air for my life, and I am on the path to healing from the untrue teachings I’ve had ingrained in my mind for years and years. Thank you!

The most refreshing book!

Wow, wow, wow!!! EVERYONE needs to read this book! So incredibly eye opening to the horrible things taught by so called Christians about Gods design for marriage and sex. I cried so hard reading the stories of the women, men, and marriages hurt by these completely unbiblical teachings. Thank you so much for confronting these gross misrepresentations and replacing them with Gods good truth and design. I have so much hope for what God wants to do in our marriage and how to better raise and train our sons and daughters. I can’t say thank you enough for your boldness to write this!

Women need more voices like this!

This is what needs to be advocated in church. Talking about sex in general should not be tabo in church since it such a big aspect of our lives. But giving permission to open the conversation and saying with statistics not all church resources teach health (mental and physical for both partners). In general the basic principles should be taught clearly in society since some of these lies about men and women have bleed over to secular society and it is damaging. I have read a few of the damaging books mentioned and agree with this books analysis. Abuse and pain are never ok and we need to give our partners more credit in what they are capable of doing or not doing if we have open communication with them. Highly recommend.

Life-Changing!!

This book has completely decimated the harmful teachings thrusted upon us by quote on quote ‘Christian sex books’. Personal responsibility (it is NOT the wife’s ‘job’ to keep her husband pure and sex is not the antidote for pornography. Repentance is.) I cannot stress how life-changing this refreshingly scriptural resource is!! I bought 3 hard copies after listening to the first hour on audible. Thank you so much!!!

Well Done!

I highly recommend this book to all it is informational and gives a perspective that the church in general does not discuss. Sex is mutual, pleasurable, and intimate not to be objectified and glorified as duty sex. Thank you to the authors Sheila and her daughter and her daughters friend for opening up this topic in a deeper way.
