Sex180 : The Next Revolution
Young adults are fed up with our sex-saturated culture. They realize that there's more to sex than what the media feeds them, and they realize that there's more to responsibility that "just wait until you're married." Youth want to have God's perspective. Not only that, they want to show their peers there's a better way to relate to the opposite sex. It's time for a revolution. A 180-degree turn is underway. Sex 180 is a guide to that revolution. It's more than a book that preaches abstinence before marriage. Sex 180 shows teens what's wrong with the way people talk and think about sex and challenges them to think differently. With solid biblical teaching, interactive sidebars, and real-life stories, teens, parents, and youth leaders will start to think about sex in a whole new way.

Back cover copy
Sex is everywhere . . . On TV. In movies. On the Web. In magazines. In high school and even youth group. Yet even with all of this exposure, a big part of the sex story is not being told-a whole dimension that goes way beyond the traditional answers. If you're fed up with our sex-saturated culture and are tired of being told to "just wait until you're married," then check out the biblical understanding of sexuality. It's something totally different. A full 180 degrees different. It's Sex 180 and it's a revolution. Dive in and hang on, because this book will turn everything you know about sex upside down. Turn the pages and join the rebellion against our culture's view of sex and grab onto what God really says about it all. You'll relate to the opposite sex in a whole new way, and you'll never be the same again. Maybe your world won't be either.
Sampler Copy So what is Sex 180? Well, it's not another T-shirt wearing, jewelry-clad movement. It's not another ad slogan or big stadium rally about abstinence. Sex 180 is a book about sex for people who realize that there's something wrong with the way we think and talk about sex. The truth is that young adults are fed up with our sex-saturated culture. They realize that there's more to sex than what the media feeds them, and they realize that there's more to responsibility than "just wait until you're married." Today's teens and young adults want something different-totally different. One hundred and eighty degrees different. They want a revolution. Sex 180 is the guidebook to that revolution. With solid biblical teaching, real-life stories, and interactive sidebars, the authors show us God's perspective on sex. As a result, teens, youth leaders, and parents will start to think about sex in a whole new way. Chip Ingram is the president and CEO of Walk Thru the Bible Ministries.
