Sexual Integrity by Ed Cole was written to give a Biblical view about sex and its sacredness in God’s sight. During his time he realized that sexual immorality was one of the hindrances to men living to their maximized potential.

The message is true today as it was back then and worth revisiting on a regular basis. The world sees sex as normal outside of marriage but God holds it in high regard. Sexual integrity is something to be valued rather than disdained.
