I didn't like the first two chapters. They drove me nuts. I found myself just wanting him to move on with the information.
But... i really began to like the way the book was set up once he got going. Again, my only complaint with the Ludy books is related to style. Content is GREAT!
It definitely isn't what he set out to write, per his own confession, and i don't think anyone would anticipate what he wrote. However, it's worth reading and thinking about. The imagery is a neat concept. I've been m
This is a hard book to explain; you can't just go around in polite Christian conversation and say that you're reading a book about finding Great Sex. Yet in a nutshell, that IS what this book is about. It's also about so much more. Eric Ludy has a witty, comical flare for writing, and with that he weaves a story of hunting for Great Sex as opposed to Imposter Sex (who by the way, looks like an Elvis impersonator). The hunt for Great Sex leads through learning about all the ingredients that go in ...more
I've read several of the Ludy's books and have enjoyed them in the past. This one was a bit...not what I expected. I think for someone who has not been raised with a mindset of purity--this might be something helpful. To me, it was too far-out in the weird allegorical way of writing, and also, I think, geared towards a younger audience. For a pre-teen/teenager without a Biblical foundation of purity, this book might be really a great encouragement and perspective changer. For myself--late twenti ...more
This is an AWESOME read for singles! If you are looking for total mind renewal regarding the manner in which you percieve this awesome expression of LOVE we call sex, this is the read for you. It unfolds like a movie as the author so eloquently paints on the canvis of your imagination. I immediately fell in love with Eric and Leslie!!!! This work was truly a breath of fresh air :-)!

I didn't read the whole thing, but did heavily skim it. It was an attempt to talk about sex in a metaphorical way as if they were real characters and it was just too weird for me. Way to fantasy like. Plus, it didn't seem to address specific issues of 18-30 year olds that it said it would....
Thankfully this isn't like their other books. I think I'd puke if I read another book like their first two, or another Josh Harris book along the same lines.

This was good and worth the read.
very interesting perspective on love, sex and purity. sacred (holiness) and Mr. Purity are presented in a beautiful narrative. great read!
