Sexual intimacy in marriage is a great gift from a good God that cements couples together and brings unity and happiness.

Nevertheless, in our broken and messed-up world we often need help and direction to understand and enjoy what it means to give ourselves to one another, and to overcome some of the difficulties and questions that every Christian husband and wife faces.

Adrian and Celia Reynolds are straightforward and compassionate as they look at Scripture to guide couples in this area. They give five clear biblical principles relating to sex and apply them to the common questions Christian couples ask about intimacy.

This refreshingly frank book is cleverly written so as to be informative without being embarrassing. Thoroughly Biblical, highly accessible, with principles that will be relevant for couples whatever stage they are at. Fantastic as a resource for marriage prep—or for any marriages looking to explore God’s design for intimacy.”

Adrian and Celia Reynolds have written a little book on a big subject. Over the last two decades as we have invested in our marriage and in Christian ministry we have faced many situations ourselves and many couples around us struggling with the intimacy. We believe that to have this honest, very personal and yet deeply biblical treatment on this much needed topic at hand will help many and will bring blessing and joy to the couples who want to glorify God in every area of their life.

Adrian and Celia have done a great job with Closer. A brave and realistic book, refreshingly honest and open about the issue of sex within Marriage. Giving clear gospel foundations and principles they encourage and help couples to communicate and navigate through the big questions. We found the emphasis on communication and the reminder that the pursuit of a godly sex life is part of our pursuit of holiness especially helpful. Having counselled countless numbers of couples over the past 20 years, we know that this is a much needed book that we will be encouraging every married couple in our church to read.”

I really appreciate the authors for their wise treatment of this delicate subject. They are also bold in touching topics that we don’t often talk about in church or fellowship settings.... continue reading


An extremely helpful book

Lucy Rycroft, 16 Jan 2021

The authors helpfully go through five important and oft-asked questions about sex, applying five Biblical principles found in 1 Corinthians 7 to each of these questions. This is a really useful way to go about it, as it teaches readers to apply the Bible themselves, rather than just to take someone else's interpretation.... continue reading


A practical guide for thinking biblically about sexual intimacy in marriage

Andy Cassler, 25 Jan 2020

Ultimately, their goal is to make sex more meaningful to a husband and wife because it’s a proclamation of a deeper truth, reflecting the union between Christ and his church. With this in mind, they provide five principles from 1 Corinthians 7 for Christian couples to help answer questions about sexual intimacy and pursue the “putting on” aspect of sexual sanctification:... continue reading
