Product Description

The 1960s heralded a sexual revolution, transforming society's vision for sex and relationships. With an appealing narrative of freedom and authenticity, the revolution won the hearts and minds of many. The church's leaders and faltering apologists seemed overwhelmed. And biblical Christians tended to react defensively rather than offering a compelling vision of their own. Many young Christians were questioning whether the Gospel really is good news in this area.

But what if we faced up honestly to our sub-Christian culture of shame? Reimagined what it means to made sexual in the image of God? Remembered that we flourish when we live in harmony with God's design? And left behind the broken promises of the sexual revolution to tell a better story of our own?

Glynn Harrison is a Christian psychiatrist and academic. He visits churches, universities, theological colleges, and conferences, speaking about Christian faith in relation to psychology, neurosciences and mental health. He is also interested in culture change and Christian worldview. Before retiring from professional life, he was Professor and Head of the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Bristol, where he was also a practising consultant psychiatrist. His research interests were focused in psychotic illnesses and health service evaluation. He is a past President of the International Federation of Psychiatric Epidemiology and acted as an advisor to WHO. Having been an Anglican lay minister, he continues to preach from time to time, and he and Louise are now members of Emmanuel Church, Bristol.
