Sex, Lies and Religion: Randy Elrod’s new book is gonna cause a stir…in a good way!

It is that time when no matter the financial or family problems, no matter the turmoil that pervades the world, for a few brief moments, “all is right in the world.” As we collapse in sweaty euphoria, we together realize a time of transcendent wonder. There dawns a realization that we have indeed been granted the privilege to see the face of a holy God. — Randy Elrod

Sex, Lies and Religion — A provocative, thoughtful, controversial book by author, blogger and creative Randy Elrod. I have known Randy for nearly a decade and can attest to his passion for seeing people live a life of liberty before God and their church communities. This book, even though it may not reflect all of my personal views, is surely a must-read and certainly a conversation that is lacking in today’s Christian circles.Yes, we talk about sex. But, do we apply theology, thought and a sense of experience in our conversation like Elrod? No, I fear not. This is not a let-me-push-every-button kind of book. Even though there is controversial views, everyone of them is presented with maturity and thoughtfulness. I applaud such a brave work and hope to learn from Elrod even more in the future. It is a good thing that what some of us appreciate being under his mentorship many now can experience.
