Goodreads Review: Pulling Back the Shades

Pulling Back the Shades: Erotica, Intimacy, and the Longings of a Woman's HeartPulling Back the Shades: Erotica, Intimacy, and the Longings of a Woman’s Heart by Dannah Gresh

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I picked up this book, originally, half expecting the authors to focus on the hype of the 50 Shades of Gray series, but still intrigued by what they would say. Instead, I found two authors speaking from different viewpoints, but unified on the same mission.

Honestly and fearlessly taking on the issue of women and erotica, pornography and sexual sin. I appreciated the the honesty of the authors, the fact that there was no issue too taboo and that they stepped outside of the common church culture and encouraged women to both take back their sexuality AND to maintain their purity. They looked at the link between sexuality and spirituality and took a very clear stance, as well as offering some clear and useful tips for finding freedom in these areas.

Not my usual type of book, but in a world as inundated and desensitized as ours is with sexuality and imagery, I was intrigued. I was refreshed and relieved by the authors stance and point of view and I would definitely recommend this book to anyone seeking freedom in these areas, those looking for a starting point for those discovering what the Bible says about sexuality and women, or even wanting to know why 50 Shades, romance novels and erotica are “such a big deal”.
