Developing a Christian Ethic in a Post-Christian Society

Written by Linda L. Bellevue

We are in the midst of a rapidly changing sexual scene. Casual sex between consenting adults scarcely gets a second look, marriage is increasingly viewed as an at-will contract, attitudes toward same-sex relationships have done an about-face, and the family has been redefined in ways that challenge how we effectively minister to those inside and the church.

If we as believers value our call to be the salt and light of society, then we must begin to think biblically and strategically about how to engage our sexually volatile culture. Sex, Lies, and the Truth aims to help Christians in all walks of life do just that: It addresses the question of how to develop a Christian ethic in an increasingly post-Christian society by becoming biblically informed and culturally conversant with a topic that promises to be one of the foremost challenges the church will face in the coming years.

Sex, Lies, and the Truth is a well-written text that speaks directly to the most important issues facing our culture today. It looks at our culture with astute clarity, interprets the biblical text with scholarly care, and most importantly, Belleville provides individuals and the church with accessible practical wisdom on how to live biblically in a world of sexual anarchy. It also provides compelling reasons why everyone who is asking the deepest questions about the meaning of life and sexuality should consider the wisdom of scripture. - Dale S. Kuehne, Richard L.
