The words ‘holy’ and ‘sexuality’ don’t often find themselves in the same sentence. But, in Christopher Yuan’s new book, Holy Sexuality and the Gospel, that’s clearly not the case. In this week’s episode, Isaac talks with Christopher about what ‘holy sexuality’ means and how sexuality can be holy. As part of God’s grand story, each of us has desires and we need to talk about those desires in a biblical way, as God intended. Christopher and Isaac discuss how we should be approaching the subjects of sex and relationships with a biblical perspective and find freedom in our sexuality.
