Sacred Unions, Sacred Passions

This book is past due! For far too long the church has stigmatized cross-sex friendships. They have created this fear, or thought process, that any male/female relationship has to end in sex, or be sexually charged. As we see from Dan Brennan's Sacred Unions, Sacred Passions, this does not have to be the case. We don't have to live in fear of the opposite sex!

Brennan reveals that male/female relationships are not only possible, but healthy. He uses the stories of Jesus, and His relationship with women (as seen from scripture) to make his point.

Brennan addresses seven issues regarding cross-sex friendships:

  • Sacred Sexuality and Friendship

  • Romantic Myth and Friendship

  • Sacred Order and Friendship

  • Sacred Unions and Friendship

  • Sacred Passions and Friendship

  • Sacred Bodies and Friendship

  • Sexual Shalom and Friendship

This book is full of valuable information. The reader can definitely tell that the author has done extensive research on the subject. The material contained within these pages is priceless. This book is a must have for pastors, those who have been raised in the legalistic church, and those desiring deeper and more meaningful relationships. If nothing else, this book will open up your mind to new perspectives of cross-sex friendships!

There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus. Galations 3:28
