The Good Girl's Guide to Great Sex: by Sheila Wray Gregoire
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Okay, at first, I was really scandalized that Zondervan, the Christian book and Bible publisher, was releasing a book like this. But, after the shock was gone, I was curious how they'd pull this off. Was it really a guide or more of an improve your relationship/advice book?
Turns out, it's a little bit of both and it's tastefully done. Part of it is a guide for soon-to-be-married or newly-wed, inexperienced Christian gals. Part of it focuses on relationship and physical issues that may arise years down the road. The book carefully balances not only the physical needs of a marriage, but the emotional and spiritual needs as well.
For some Christian denominations, the author's viewpoints may be more modern and liberated than what they traditionally teach. However, the author admits that her interpretations, such as Genesis 38 and Lev. 18:22, are what she thinks. She isn't pushy or preachy about it, and recommends couples stick with what they are comfortable with.
I think it'd make a fun bridal shower gift!
