Young adults are fed up with our sex-saturated culture. They realize that there's more to sex than what the media feeds them, and they realize that there's more to responsibility that "just wait until you're married." Youth want to have God's perspective. Not only that, they want to show their peers there's a better way to relate to the opposite sex. It's time for a revolution. A 180-degree turn is underway.Sex 180 is a guide to that revolution. It's more than a book that preaches abstinence before marriage. Sex 180 shows teens what's wrong with the way people talk and think about sex and challenges them to think differently. With solid biblical teaching, interactive sidebars, and real-life stories, teens, parents, and youth leaders will start to think about sex in a whole new way.… (more)

A book written for teenagers regarding decisions regarding sex.

The premise of "sex180" is that it is an "invitation to a revolution" exactly the opposite of modern cultural views regarding sexuality; hence, a 180 about sex. The authors attempt to speak of a Biblical understanding of sexuality in such a way as to be appealing to teenagers.

They seek to get teenagers to buy into waiting for sex until marriage, to not get too serious too quickly in relationships, but instead to first focus on the brother/sister in Christ relationship so as to have romantic relationships develop out of Christian/friend relationships.

If they can get teens to buy into that, sure; well and good. The authors confess that they did not live up to that standard for various reasons; hopefully those who read will listen more to their suggestions than their behaviors. Now, how realistic is it to expect teenagers to buy into this theme or to expect romance to come out of friendships? That indeed is the question.

Since I'm not a teenager I cannot attest to whether the book is actually engaging to a teenager or if it is clear that the authors are trying too hard. I'm afraid it's the latter. ( )

This book is a great road map for Christian heterosexuals but if you're none of the above I don't see how this book can be any help at all. That's what bugs me about the book, is that it only covers the one religion and the one sexual preference.
