    1. A pretty good read. My NetGalley copy was messed up and hard to read (due to sentences being out of place at times), so I think that made it a little bit harder for me to read -- but I don't hold that against the book. I liked the use of scripture and quotes from other books. It made it seem like this book was really researched and thought out. All in all, not at easy read, but a good one.*I received a complimentary ebook copy of this book for my honest review. As always, all thoughts and opinio [...]

    2. Living in the wake of the sexual revolution, thinking about what should be regarding as normative sexual behaviors has shifted. Conservative or liberal, we can all agree that our age is an age of sexual confusion. And it's not just the "culture" that has had conceptions of sexual meaning crushed, but the Church as well. What are Christians who want to earnestly obey Jesus, love their neighbor, and bring God glory in their sexual lives, to do? Denny Burk has produced an excellent resource on thes [...]

    3. Does an ok job at countering some of the (maybe) erroneous views expressed in other Christian sex books, but it doesn't really provide any real guidance or new helpful information. It explained the meaning of sex within the first couple of chapters and from there, well, it kind of just rambled.

    4. One of the best books on biblical sexuality that I have ever read. Should be on the shelf of every minister who wants to defend the biblical view of sexuality in a time of moral revolution. Recommended. Dr. Burk had done the church a great favor by writing this book.

    5. Those who are familiar with and/or grounded in biblical sex-ethics will not find a lot of "creative" new or original material from Burk. But that is not to say that his book is anything but incisive, relevant, refreshing, and sorely needed.He defends the classic view of marriage and sex, but his exegesis is alive, careful, and faithful, and his writing lucid and precise. Burk sees the storms coming where the young generation will be forced to pick sides and stand firm on questions of homosexuali [...]

    6. Good addition to biblical views on marriage, sex, and gender. I would have given it five stars but Burk's reformed exegesis led me to a four star rating.

    7. This is a clear, challenging, and Scripture-saturated study on the meaning of sexuality, gender, and marriage in a time and culture that tragically cheapens all three. This book covers a broad range of topics such as homosexuality, marriage, family planning, gender, and sexuality. In a culture that screams its views at us, it is so important for those of us who follow the Lord to know what we believe on these issues. As Burk says, "The messages coming from our culture are clear. Ours should be e [...]

    8. This was a pretty comprehensive and more-academic look at how Christians should understand sex. The book is divided into eight chapters which each cover fairly distinct sub-topics in the area. Overall, I found that Burk displayed very careful exegesis that dealt with most of the competing views in the different areas, making this a pretty strong book. Many of his chapters were really good, and his section dealing with the issue of intersex was superb. His weakest chapter was the one on birth con [...]

    9. Denny Burk has done the church a service in writing "What Is The Meaning Of Sex?"The book is founded upon the understanding that we should give glory to God in all that we do.Thus, Burk titles the chapters: 1. Glorify God With Your Body2. Glorify God With Your Hermeneutic3. Glorify God With Your Marriage4. Glorify God With Your Conjugal Union5. Glorify God With Your Family Planning6. Glorify God With Your Gender7. Glorify God With Your Sexuality8. Glorify God With Your SinglenessBurk writes simp [...]

    10. An outstanding book that sets out a very clear and decisive orthodox Christian view of sexuality. While few in the world want to hear the truth today, Denny Burk speaks, prophet-like into a maelstrom of confusion. I think Christians are going to have a lot of work to do as time goes by, loving those who have been hurt by departing from God's original pattern for men and women.

    11. A solid book. If you've read much from complementarian sources such as the Journal of Biblical Manhood and Womanhood, there won't be anything substantially new in this except treatments of recent cultural developments.

    12. The writing is just subpar and much of his exegesis is less than convincing. If you're looking for a book full of dry rambling that doesn't have much to do with the title, this is the book for you.

    13. Denny Burk has written a sober, concise, and thoughtful book on sexuality as God created it. I literally could not put this book down until it was finished, and highly recommend it to all.

    14. Rich in exegesis, analysis, and clear thinking on a wide variety of important and controversial issues.

    15. Some very needed clarity in the midst of widespread and ever-expanding confusion surrounding the topic. Will be using this in the future as a valuable resource in multiple contexts, I'm sure.
