The God of Sex

In August Peter Jones's new book, The God of Sex: Sensuality, Spirituality, and the Transformation of Western Culture, will be published. Here's a blurb from Lig Duncan:

"The God of Sex is a timely and significant book. Far from ... books that ... seek to titillate ... by the use of the word "sex," Jones gives us a serious and Scriptural look at pagan thinking about sexuality - and offers a riveting analysis and critique, followed by a beautiful unfolding of the biblical and Christian view of sex. This is not the dusty stuff of antiquarianism, but vital a contemporary discussion with massive importance for current Christian engagement in and with our culture. Read and grow!"
