Here's the blurb:Sexual and emotional fantasies tend to reveal certain areas of trauma, brokenness, and disillusionment that are yet to be healed.
Many people, including Christians, look to their sexual and emotional fantasies as a roadmap to where they can find the fulfillment they long for. However, these fantasies aren't a reliable roadmap into the future; they are actually a rocky roadmap from the past.
Shannon Ethridge, best-selling Christian author, certified life coach, and advocate for healthy sexuality, offers fascinating insights into common sexual thoughts such as:
- dating a much older man or much younger woman
- connecting with strangers via cyberspace
- gay and lesbian fantasies
- fascination with pleasure, pain, and power
Introduced in Genesis, God's design for sex, beyond procreation, is to offer connection and pleasure for marriage partners. But also in Genesis is an outline of seven sexual fallacies that bring discord, pain, and brokenness. The Fantasy Fallacy helps explain the basis for these fallacies and offers suggestions to help expose not only the meaning behind them but ways to face them, and heal from them, and find physical, emotional, and spiritual freedom.
