The predominant message in our culture is that it's okay to have sex whenever, wherever, and however we want. Sex has become just sex. But while society has taken sex too far, the church hasn't taken it far enough.
God wants couples to make love in marriage--with passion, with purpose, and with pleasure. Marriages aren't experiencing all the benefits that come from a healthy sex life. Couples are facing a barrage of influences that keep them from connecting with each other regularly--the kids, the career, the house, the errands, etc.
THE 7-DAY SEX CHALLENGE shows people that sex in marriage is more than just sex, and it's more than a chore. Young believes it's time to get back to understanding the context of sex in marriage and that it's time for couples to bust through the barriers that are in the way of a healthy sexual relationship. Couples ought to experience the benefits of having sex regularly, intentionally, and creatively. THE 7-DAY SEX CHALLENGE will allow couples to discover that the intersection of God and sex can lead to a life punctuated by exclamation marks!

And if you're a brand new parent, you'll thank God for an opportunity to build your child's character on solid ground.
Pride. Anger. Envy. Slothfulness. Lust. Greed. Gluttony. Is this an out-of-date list of sins preached against by a behind-the-times church? Or are these sins a challenge and a stumbling block for those of us who are living at the dawn of the twenty-first century? Pastor Ed Young, Jr., says, "I believe you can not only live what the world calls a 'good life,' but you can live what God calls a 'rig life.'
You can be free of the things that are hanging you. But to be free, you can and must own up to the distractions described in this book."
