“Without rival, the best book on broken sexuality I have ever read.” —Dan B. Allender, PhD
Many of us feel ashamed and undesirable after years of sexual brokenness and addiction. The guilt and stigma surrounding sexual struggles can paralyze us and keep us from seeking help and healing. Author Jay Stringer approaches these sensitive subjects with gentleness and understanding.
Based on original research from over 3,800 men and women, Unwanted is a groundbreaking resource that explores the “why” behind self-destructive sexual choices in order to help readers work towards freedom. Addressing difficult issues with compassionate insight, this book discusses:
Abandonment and broken relationships
Trauma and sexual abuse
The sex industry and pornography
Violence against women
Learning to love and care for yourself
Healthy conflict and repair in your relationships
Investing in community
Creating healthy boundaries
A perfect resource for those seeking self-help or those working to minister to the sexually broken people around them, Unwanted offers life-changing, practical guidance rooted in clinical evidence to light the way on a path to wholeness.
