Help and direction to understand and enjoy intimacy in Christian marriage.

Sexual intimacy in marriage is a great gift from a good God that cements couples together and brings unity and happiness.

Nevertheless, in our broken and messed-up world we often need help and direction to understand and enjoy what it means to give ourselves to one another, and to overcome some of the difficulties and questions that every Christian husband and wife faces.

Adrian and Celia Reynolds are straightforward and compassionate as they look at Scripture to guide couples in this area. They give six clear biblical principles relating to sex and apply them to the common questions Christian couples ask about intimacy.

Adrian is one of the leaders of Christchurch Harborough and also serves as Associate National Director for the Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches in the UK. He previously served as one of the Directors of the Proclamation Trust. He is married to Celia and has three adult daughters and two grandchildren.

Philip Moore, Network Director, ACTS 29 Europe

“Adrian and Celia, with modesty, wisdom and humor, ask and answer some of the taboo questions that surround sexual intimacy in Christian marriage. They establish five principles that are biblical and (therefore) practical, and which any couple at any stage of their married life would find helpful to review regularly. This is a book that is enjoyable to read and enjoyable to put into practice.” (2020)

Patricia Weerakoon, Australian Christian sexologist and author.

“As a Christian sexologist, I would recommend this book to all marrieds and to be marrieds. It places the erotic joy of sex within the creation, fall, redemption new creation narrative and expresses physical sexual intimacy in the context of holiness and sanctification. In a culture where sexual intimacy is commodified and cheapened it is an encouragement to couples to ground their sex life in the intimacy, selfless love and oneness that Christ and his bride enjoy.” (2020)

Linda Allcock, Author of Deeper Still

“This refreshingly frank book is cleverly written so as to be informative without being embarrassing. Thoroughly Biblical, highly accessible, with principles that will be relevant for couples whatever stage they are at. Fantastic as a resource for marriage prep—or for any marriages looking to explore God’s design for intimacy.” (2020)

It’s written in a disarming and fun style that both challenges and speaks to every marriage, whether newlyweds or old-times like us who are looking forward to applying all this wonderful wisdom about one of our favorite shared activities! We are experiencing a deeper level of communication, resulting in greater holiness, joy and intimacy towards one another. Thank you for this book!” (2020)
