The Passion Principles Book Review


 About the Book

Move beyond the mechanics of sex to a rich and rewarding connection!

God's desire is for couples to enjoy vibrant sexual relationships without inhibition, awkwardness, fear, resentment, guilt, or shame. With honesty and frankness, life coach and best-selling author Shannon Ethridge opens the minds of both husbands and wives to embrace a lifestyle of passion and pleasure.

Divided into four sections, "The Passion Principles" helps couples celebrate the spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical dimensions of sexuality. Questions include:

What was God thinking when He created sex?Why do humans think about sex so much?Will there be sex in heaven?How did we get such different ideas about sex and love?How can I get past his or her sexual past?How can I help my spouse heal from the sexual abuses he or she suffered?What if my heart is telling me I married the wrong person?How can we balance mismatched sex drives?

Some chapters end with questions for personal contemplation or for couples to use as conversation starters, and other chapters end with prayers that foster a deeper spiritual and emotional connection, making this book a perfect guide to a more passionate love life. (Goodreads)

My Review
I am not usually interested in hearing about others opinions are what goes on in the bedroom. But Shannon Ethridge is an author that I enjoy because she is a to the point, no nonsense, praise God woman. I liked this book and what she has to say about sex and that God designed it. She goes into detail with the spiritual aspect that I didn't entirely agree with. At the start of the book Shannon states that this book will be controversial, the parts you don't like just mark with a marker and move on to at least finish it. Each person has a different opinion/understanding on this topic and when you start adding Bible verses people get nervous. Shannon goes into great detail about our Maker and what is actually written in the Bible. She also goes into detail on the uncomfortable things. 
She has some great advice on how to talk to your spouse and answers questions that she has been asked by many women. 

I recommend to those who are looking for a book on this topic.
