Denny Burk has just stepped into the fray with What Is The Meaning of. .

Denny Burk has just stepped into the fray with What Is The Meaning of Sex?, a wide-ranging treatment of what the Bible says about sex and sexuality. This is not a guide to a better marriage and certainly not a bedroom how-to. As the book begins, Burk explains his belief that much of our discussion about sex has been derailed by confusing the ultimate purpose of sex with its subordinate purposes. The ultimate purpose of sex, he says, is to glorify God. He proves this with a careful exposition of 1 Corinthians 6:12-20 where Paul corrects a sexual aberration among the Christians of Corinth by commanding the people there to use their bodies for God’s glory. With clarity and compassion, this book sets forth the Bible's teaching on sexuality from a complementarian perspective, dealing with controversial issues such as homosexuality and polygamy.

Denny Burk’s new book, What Is the Meaning of Sex?, attempts to bring clarity to sexuality, which he considers one of the touchstone issues of post-Christian America. Christian faithfulness in our generation requires that we be prepared to apply the Word of God to the gritty issues of life, Burk writes. In other words, Christian faithfulness requires that Christians consider the ultimate purpose of their sexuality. To this end, Burk encourages readers to, as the apostle Paul said, Glorify God with your body.

Sex. We live in a world that loves it without understanding it. This book clearly explains the truth about sex and winsomely responds to society’s evolving views on human sexuality and gender. From marriage to birth control, homosexuality to singleness, What is the Meaning of Sex? sets forth a distinctly Christian perspective, equipping you to engage our confused culture with a God-glorifying vision of human sexuality.
Denny Burk has written both a brilliant critique of errant sexual views and presented a cogent case for the biblical meaning of sex that transcends all cultures and time. Burk's thesis developed in this book is that sex is a gift from God that is to be enjoyed exclusively within the covenant of marriage so that it might magnify God's own covenant love for his people and thus bring glory to Him. The glory of God [all of who God is put on display] is the ultimate purpose of everything a Christian does - including sex.

There have been many books written by Christians in the past several years but they usually fall short in applying a teleological view of sex. In other words they address what the Bible has to say about sex, but not necessarily what the purpose of sex is. Burk writes: "What they [with reference to Mark Driscoll's recent book on sex and marriage - but can be applied to various other authors] never asked, however, is the teleological question: Does this act fulfill God's purposes for the sexual union? Does this act fulfill Gd's ultimate purpose for marriage and sexuality--the glory of God? This is where teleology can help us."

Burk proceeds to write a biblical theology of sex with a God-centered ethical foundation based on virtually everything the Bible has to say about our bodies, our interpretation of the relevant passages pertaining to sex, our marriages, conjugal unions, family planning, gender, sexuality and singleness. In all these areas Burk does a remarkable job of what he describes as blending biblical theology, ethics, and cultural issues pertaining to sex. He writes, "I am favoring a bleded approach that gives a privileged place to teleology within the framework of divine revelation. Scripture is plainly concerned with the formation of moral character as the basis for moral choices (as in character ethics). Scripture is also concerned with rules and divine commands (as in deontology). But Scripture also focuses on the glory of God as the purpose of all things (as in teleology)."

Therefore, Burk argues that the four aspects of sex as defined by God in the context of marriage as a covenant between and man and a woman are designed for (1) the consummation of marriage, (2) procreation, (3) expression of love, and (4) pleasure. However, these four purposes "comprise the means by which we glorify God with our sexuality." Burk unfolds his thesis methodically, clearly, and with great theological depth that "the ultimate purpose of human sexuality is the glory of God and that the ultimate ethic is to glorify God with our sexuality." I can't possibly recommend this book high enough for both Christians and non-Christians to come to grips with the reason, meaning, and purpose for one's gender, identity, sex, and marriage according to God's great design.

*I was provided with a copy of this book for review by the publisher and was not required to write a fovorable review.
Thoughtful and Exhaustive introduction of the subject. It makes me want to learn more about these issues. Very easy to read!
Excellent book, well researched and well written.
Great book informing us of gospel centered sexuality! This resource will be used for generation after generation, because of its exegetical work of many biblical passages that speak on this issue.

As expected, in good condition.
The best book I have read on sexual ethics.
I am a pastor and have read many books on this subject, none with the clarity I found here. The scriptures are clear and this book
is faithful to proclaim it's truth. I would highly recommend it
