“Worth reading along with the Bible”
I'm not surprised Glynn Harrison did the forward because this book is basically his "Better Story." Not the most gripping book, and there needs to be a balance of the better story type writing with more on boundaries, as increasingly Christians don't know where the boundaries are. Is that mainly because we don't think Biblically because we don't really read the Bible, and soak it in, letting the Word of God dwell in us richly?
Thanks for this review. You are right to draw the parallel between the two books — Swipe up is a direct development from Glynn’s book, with a very specific and important difference. Glynn’s book is a more intellectual and cultural analysis of our culture’s views on sexuality, and is aimed at mature, thinking Christians. As Glynn’s foreword says, Swipe Up is all the ideas from his book, but packaged in a form that can take those truths and speak to a rising generation of younger Christians who are less mature in their faith, perhaps—and even to those who are not yet Christians. The target market is completely different—as reflected by the length, voice and prevalence of storytelling. Please pray with us that this book will reach a generation that would not read a book of the length and style of A Better Story, but who desperately need to hear the Gospel’s liberating message about sex, sexuality and relationships.
