Far too many African American women struggle with a deep division between the two fundamental pillars of their identity–spirituality and sexuality.

Recommends it for: women, men, anyone who wants to have fulfilling sexual and spiritual life simultaneously
I used this book as one of my primary resources for a research paper on Women, Spirituality, and Sexuality. Dr. Rev.

I am taking some brief notes from the book for a future radio show: Singleness, Sex, and Selfless Love, August 21st 930pm CST on (Adrienna Turner Show).

This woman of God is so awesome. I had the pleasure of meeting her and hearing her words during a conference at Howard University.
