Redeemed Sexuality

12 Sessions for Healing and Transformation in Community

by Andrew A. Boa
Foreword by William M. Struthers

Sexual brokenness permeates our culture and is often a source of fear, shame, or secret sin for emerging adults within the church. But as we experience love, joy, and intimacy with God and others, sexual shame and sin lose their power. Incorporating peer-to-peer leadership, this small group curriculum invites us to seek sexual maturity and discipleship in the context of community.
