Three decades of questions led to the writing of a book I did not want to write.
- Why do even Christian women choose abortion?
- Why do Christian girls and women dress as provocatively as non-Christians?
- Why do so many Christians live together outside of marriage?
- Why do a growing number of Christians defend homosexuality and counterfeit marriage?
- Why are children sexualized beginning at young ages?
The book, says Dr. Daniel Heimbach, will “ruffle feathers.”
Daniel R. Heimbach, Ph.D., is the senior professor of Christian Ethics at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, NC. He is also a Research Fellow in Christian Ethics with the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission. Dr. Heimbach has authored True Sexual Morality: Recovering Biblical Standards for a Culture in Crisis and Why Not Same-Sex Marriage: A Manual for Defending Marriage Against Radical Deconstruction.
Dr. Heimbach recently reviewed The Failure of Sex Education in the Church: Mistaken Identity, Compromised Purity (Amazon). He writes:
This book exposes what has been driving the sexual education movement in Western culture in recent decades. Bartlett speaks truth that will ruffle feathers because she exposes lies on which the PC movement operates. Although she writes with conviction Bartlett is not contentious, meaning only to stop parents, churches, and schools from harming children in the guise of educating them. This book may even startle some very conservative Christians, but what Bartlett argues is convincing. Sex education cannot be redeemed and needs to be rejected entirely because the whole movement is established to forward notions fundamentally contrary to biblical reality. We are never more free than when restraining the flesh on God’s terms and never more enslaved than when seeking to follow and express our own fleshly desires without restraint.
Dr. Heimbach and his ministry associates Russell Moore and Albert Mohler are faithful to examine the biblical standards on sexual morality. They recognize the counterfeit views that have crept into our “sexually revolutionized” society. Heimbach offers wise analysis of a deep and pervasive problem as a pastor, theologian, and professor. His books, notes Albert Mohler, “frame debate and encourage Christians to battle for moral sanity and for souls.” I am not a pastor, theologian, or professor. My book is written from the perspective of a wife, mom, grandmother, pro-life advocate, and woman who has listened to countless stories of men, women and children who suffer the consequences of a mistaken identity.
I don’t want to ruffle feathers. I am, at heart, a peacemaker. But there comes a time when even a peacemaker has to rise up in the face of evil. This is that time. It is not because I want to, but because I am compelled to… for the sake of my grandchildren.
