In the beginning, he created Adam. Then he made Eve. And ever since we've been trying to figure out what to do next. Loveology is just that -- a theology of love. Marriage, sexuality, romance, what we call 'dating', masculinity, femininity -- it was all God's idea. The scriptures are chock-full of His thoughts on love. He should know. He created it. Not just 'love' in the generic sense, but the whole thing from start to finish. With an autobiographical thread that turns a book into a story, popular pastor and speaker John Mark Comer shares about what is right in male/female relationships -- what God intended in the Garden. And about what is wrong -- about fallout in a post-Genesis 3 world, east of Eden. Comer starts off with Jesus in Matthew 19 speaking on divorce, and points out that, statistically, the odds of a marriage making it past a few years are 50/50. From there we follow Jesus back to Genesis to learn where we got off track, and set the stage for the rest of the book. Loveology begins at marriage (the ending) and works backward. Each topic breaks down into a chapter: marriage, love, sexuality, romance and dating, singleness, masculinity, and femininity, ending with an in depth Q + A, answering straightforward, honest questions on everything from how to ask a girl on a date to how to think about homosexuality. This is the book for people inside and outside the church who want to learn what the Bible says about sex. Who are tired of Hollywood's message (sex is God), and the church's message (sex is sin), and know there has to be an 'Option C'. Who want to ask the why questions, and get intelligent, biblical, grace-and-truth answers.
