Saint Louis, MO–In today’s world, children often hear alternate versions of sexuality and relationships. For over fifty years, Concordia Publishing House has equipped parents to confidently answer the tough questions. Recently updated to address contemporary issues, Learning About Sex encourages parents to talk their children about God’s great story of creation and redemption.
“The Learning About Sex series has long aided parents who wish to impart godly values to their children. With this latest revision, [CPH has] done an incredible job of helping youth and adults alike understand the challenges of sexuality, relationships, and personal identity within the larger context of our faith, said Daniel Weiss, founder and president of The Brushfires Foundation. “Sadly, many youth today, including in the Church, treat their sexuality as something entirely removed from their spiritual lives. I am pleased to say that this series grounds these delicate matters in the Word of God and does so with compassion, conviction, and enthusiasm for the blessings that come from pursuing God’s beautiful design for our lives. This deeply Christian approach to education about sex, the body, and relationships is a rare gift to the world. Every parent should seize it.”
The new edition of Learning about Sex includes these features:
• In-depth discussion of gender questions
• New age-appropriate, thought-provoking “By God’s Design”
• Increased emphasis on personal hygiene and health
• Discussion of the pornography and Internet dangers children may encounter
• Updated STD and birth control information
• Completely new, contemporary images
In addition to revised and expanded content in the LAS books, additional content designed to help parents is available at cph.org/las. Parents will find an extensive video series and update information on current topics.
