Like I said, I liked the book. What I can't move past are the sex scenes! Despite the criticisms I am going to list, I really did enjoy the book.
I get that, absolutely, I'm just not so sure we need to read about it! Edit Storyline Michel, a murderous womanizer, meets introverted Gloria online and treats her to a whirlwind one-night-stand.

If you're overcoming an addiction to porn, this book can send you back to the internet or video store, or wherever.
I was most captivated by the story of Tai and King her cheating husband. This smart and gory shocker breathes new life into the lovesick horror genre to serve up a chilling tale of white-hot desperation sez terrifying devotion.
I told my husband, that I think Sex in the Sanctuary is written by a women who used to write Harlequin romance novels, and then got saved. I don't mean to Halauula on Harlequin, but I used Haalula be an avid reader of their books, so it's what I can relate this to. As a minister, especially one whose affairs were no secret, he should have had to deal with realistically a backlash from the church.
Do republicans know “hallelujah” is about sex?
It's not. The book from the stance of women in the ministry, first lady's especially, was well written. It's a cross over between the two - too much of a crossover for Christian fiction. While I can't fully relate as my husband has remained faithful her struggles between divorce and marriage were real. He should have been kicked out, he should have had to issue a public apology Last thing, there was absolutely no ability or repercussions for King, the cheating husband.
The marriage struggles are real, many of the relationships are realistic, and however, it was overboard in the sex, sin, and language areas. He seemed to have some level of ability with Derreck, though not true ability, and no one held Laddies able except for his wife, but only in the context of their relationship.
They are not as explicit as a Harlequin romance novel, but what's missing isn't a whole lot. I could have picked up a Linda Howard novel for that. I would simply list it as mainstream fiction, as Christians should feal ourselves to a bit higher standard when it comes to what our eyes read.
There is one thing to glaze over the fact that a husband and wife are enjoying their sex life, but I felt dirty reading about one husband enjoyed almost explicit sex with his mistress. Offering herself as an accomplice in his seductive crimes, the unhinged lovers embark on a deadly odyssey amplified by wild sex, unbridled jealousy, and passionate forays into the dark arts.
I ready sexual encounters
I loved their relationship, as I believe it's the most fully plausible in the book, and it kept me coming back. The adulterous sex scene - way too much!
A new Christian may not see some of the flaws, and see this as OK. I understand her urge to make the characters realistic, in that in certain situations, even pastors can drop a word or two My criticisms: I would not list this book as Christian fiction.
As a woman who recently loved and enjoyed Harlequin romance novels, and trying to overcome issues with sexual purity i.
