However, unlike most medical texts on sex, Wheat comes from an explicitly Christian and biblical worldview, and saturates his practical scientific explanations and recommendations in biblical truth, which is incredibly comforting for those looking for a scientifically reliable resource that has not been as tainted by the secular view of sex.
However, this is not a list of does and don'ts--Wheat encourages readers to honor their spouses, and he explains various aspects of sex and reproduction, but by and large he does not condone or condemn specific activities or practices. This is most notable in the section on birth control. Wheat is staunchly pro-life and opposes all clearly abortifacient methods such as the morning after pill.
However, he does not address the morality of birth control in and of itself that is, whether it is morally acceptable to try to divorce sex from procreation. But he is very clear that he does not intend to tell couples what to do.
His goal is to inform them about the various methods and let them make their own decisions. But if you want a moderately detailed medical guide chocked full of practical advice, this is an excellent resource. Wheat includes an especially helpful section on what to expect on the honeymoon, and also spends a fair amount of time walking the reader through practical solutions to common problems married couples face.
And all his advice is under-girded by the biblical principles of selfless service and honest communication. The final chapter of the book does present the gospel, but I would have loved to see the gospel message permeate the rest of the text a bit more thoroughly. Still, for a Christian take on sex in marriage, I doubt you'll find better than this. Aug 06, Tiffany Thomas rated it it was amazing. This is an excellent book for couples experiencing sexual dysfunction who want quick, accurate medical answers for their symptoms and challenges.
It is not flowery.
It gets directly to the point. Couples need not read the whole book. Just read through the table of contents and try chapters til you find your issue. Then head to the doctor's office with a possible diagnosis in hand so that you can be treated if necessary. Most if the issues in this book require simple changes or manipulation a t This is an excellent book for couples experiencing sexual dysfunction who want quick, accurate medical answers for their symptoms and challenges.
Most if the issues in this book require simple changes or manipulation a that a couple can master in a matter of weeks in order to eliminate these dysfunctions completely. This book was a huge help for my husband and I many years ago when I was first introduced to it!
Sep 22, Mary Anne rated it really liked it. I read this book as part of my premarital counseling. I found it Biblically based and encouraging, casting marriage in a very positive light. It is extremely detailed in regard to the physical act of lovemaking in a Christian marriage and I would recommend it be approached carefully and with consideration of timing in a persons life. I would recommend this book for married couples and couples preparing for marriage.
Dec 08, Sandra rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Recommended to Sandra by: A friend gave it to me long before I got married. When I got married in , I was a virgin and found out that I was to tight for sex. I was married a whole week before I read this book and the small section in there for virgins helped me and my husband so. My mother had the same problem and she wen to the doctor for them to open her up and she said it hurt really bad.
The technique given saved me that trip and caused my husband and I to bond in an even more intimate way. Jul 01, Elisa Garza rated it really liked it. I have to say, as a socially-conservative woman, I'm somewhat embarrassed to include this book on my list.
Nov 02, Brad rated it really liked it Shelves: Excellent resource for engaged couples and those counseling them.
But helpful for married couples at any stage of life, as well. Jul 25, Nathan added it Shelves: During my engagement, I was advice-overloaded. I received all sorts of books on marriage, many of which started saying the same things. If I had to narrow the field for future newlyweds, this book is in my top three. With a spectrum of knowledge from newlyweds to couples in their 70's, not everything in the book directly applied to my wife and me.
But it was helpful to see Wheat's scope and tuck some information away for future reference. Wheat takes a holistic approach to good sex.
He writes, " During my engagement, I was advice-overloaded. He writes, "Everything that happens in a marriage has its effect on the lovemaking experience.
I appreciated Wheat's bluntness and discretion.
He was open and comprehensive. And illustrations were less graphic than some books. My wife and I have referenced this book many times. Highly recommended for any couple who is further along in their engagement, newlywed, or long-married. It will most certainly strengthen your marriage. Oct 05, Sarah Elizabeth rated it it was amazing.
A wonderful book on God's design for marriage and sex. In this way does it serve to glorify God. Sex can be a beautiful blessing, a treasured gift.
Especially if said persons are engaged, soon-to-be engaged, married, or soon-to-be married. Howev A wonderful book on God's design for marriage and sex.
However, this book is still a fantastic resource to turn to if the couple has been married for a year or even 50 years. Very thorough and informed guide to sex within a marriage relationship.
This is an awesome read for newlyweds! If you have questions about sex, arousal and orgasm that you're not comfortable asking your parents, or even friends or mentors, this book is a great resource. I will probably revert to this book from time to time for reference, but most of what I read in this book I learned in college or psych books on marriage.
This is a Christian book so anyone expecting it to not include what's considered Christian values would be naive - even though those values can differ from all Christian practices.
This is a book on intimacy within marriage. I thought it was well written. Brotherson is a very, very good read. This is a book I would definitely recommend, especially to engaged or new This is a book on intimacy within marriage. This is a book I would definitely recommend, especially to engaged or newly married couples. Oct 22, Brian rated it it was ok Shelves: This book might be helpful for some young couples, but others may find it doesn't teach anything not already learned from the journey through adolescnce.
However, I could see this as being a good reference for counselors or pastors. Frankly, much of what is covered is the stuff of Cosmo or Men's Health, but from a Christian perespective. It also deals with a whole life perspective, and even has a few chapters on senior citizens.
Aug 12, Clint rated it it was ok Recommends it for: I read this years and years ago when I was going through a pre-marriage course at my then-church.
I have to say the medical perspective is much more informative and in-depth than I've seen in other places. However, the how-to parts were too preachy.
I would only recommend this book for virgins who have been led to believe that all sex is sinful and bad. For that person, this book is a must read. View 1 comment. Nov 04, Mark Stamps rated it it was amazing. You think the tv and porn you've watched will prepare you for great sex?
You probably don't, right? Or how bout that awkward conversation your parents had with you like 10 years ago. You're gonna get smart and read this book or something similar eventually.
I think this is a great choice. Jul 30, Rebekah rated it liked it Shelves: We got these during our engagement and they were such a great resource that I bought copies of them for several of my also newly engaged friends. We chose them after a little research of so many other marriage resource books. Aug 12, Julie rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Well written guide for Christian marriage, biblically based. Recommend for couples who've been married for awhile, too.
Reminds you to get back to the basics - serving each other. Jun 07, Anastasia Rose rated it really liked it. Great book on God's real intention for sex. Oct 30, Josh rated it liked it Shelves: First read as part of pre-marital counseling sometime around I think the book has a few problems, but that is far far less than many other titles on sex that carry the adjective "Christian.
Nov 11, Marianne Ogden rated it it was amazing. I highly recommend this to any newlyweds or anyone else who needs to know. I hate those books with pithy stories or moralizing. This book just gives the info ya need to know.
You'll love the climax! I couldn't resist that one. May 29, Naomi rated it really liked it.
