Whether you are single or married, sexually dead or just looking to revive your sex life, Pulling Back the Shades will address your desire to be both sexual AND spiritual. With solid Biblical teaching and transparent stories, trusted authors Dannah Gresh and Dr. Juli Slattery, offer an unflinching look at the most personal questions women ask. The book offers practical advice for women to address five core longings:

Editorial Reviews

Dannah and Juli pull back the shades to shine some light on how erotic literature exploits the deep spiritual and sexual longings of a woman's heart. With the Bible as a mooring, they help us address these longings in healthy and holy ways. If you've read erotica, have been tempted to read it, or are even mildly curious about it, you MUST read this book!

- Mary Kassian, author, Girls Gone Wise

Dannah and Juli have created a beautiful guide book for real intimacy that satisfies our deepest longings. They debunk the lies we naively trade for the Truth. Open the pages of this book to discover the satisfaction you deeply long for.

Sexual pleasure is not about self-gratification, and it is more than mutual gratification. Single or married, we are called to be spiritually, relationally, and sexually mature, for the glory of God! Whether man or woman, our sinful natures can easily lead us into the false intimacy of BDSM. Pulling Back the Shades exposes the myths of Fifty Shades of Grey. This book will lead many who have fallen into the darkness, back into a passion for God's glory with both a strong mature spiritual and sexual desire.

- Harry W. Schaumburg, Founder of Stone Gate Resources, author of False Intimacy and Undefiled

Do you long to be a spiritually satisfied woman? Do you long to be a sexually satisfied woman? Pulling Back the Shades will take you to new places in spiritual and sexual freedom (and it's not to a Red Room of Pain!).

- Linda Dillow, speaker and bestselling author of Calm My Anxious Heart and What's It Like to Be Married to Me?
