Review

"With lived experience, direct frankness and a pastoral heart, Deb Hirsch addresses the church on sexuality. In so doing, Redeeming Sex prepares the way for the places the church must go to be 'among' today's confused and strife-ridden world of sexuality. It is a vulnerable gift that moves us beyond faulty stereotypes and pre-set notions. I cannot think of a better book to start the conversation."--David Fitch, Northern Seminary, author of Prodigal Christianity

"What the homosexuality debate needs is convincing testimony. That's what Redeeming Sex offers. Debra Hirsch's own story and what she learned about sex before and after meeting Jesus is both convincing and convicting. But the book is more than testimony. Debra makes intelligent, faithful use of Scripture and of authors who have engaged with this topic. She also untangles key differences between sexuality and cultural roles. Noting the Bible's extensive 'sexual language and imagery, ' Debra affirms that 'our sexuality lies close to our spirituality.' Her book can lead Christians to an integration of sex and sanctity that enriches both and makes us more faithful and redemptive disciples of Jesus Christ."--Howard A. Snyder, author of Homosexuality and the Church"

"Join the conversation about Redeeming Sex: Naked Conversations About Sexuality and Spirituality with Deb Hirsch. Deb takes a challenging conversation and brings humility, authenticity and truth to help us all talk more openly and honestly about this important topic. Thank you, Deb Hirsch!"--Dave Ferguson, lead pastor, Community Christian Church, lead visionary, NewThing

"Finally. A thoughtful, biblical, yet paradigm-busting discussion on the hottest topic in the church and culture today. Redeeming Sex pulls no punches yet graciously guides us toward the heart of God in our human sexuality."--Hugh Halter, author of Flesh

"This book challenges us to love God and people through the lens of our sexuality. Deb pushes us to see sexuality not as something to be done secretly in closets and dark rooms but as the beauty of God. This book challenges for sure but it's a must read."--Leroy Barber, global executive director, Word Made Flesh"

"In Redeeming Sex, Deb Hirsch helps the church catch a vision of relationship that can lead to love and life where now there is often confusion and pain. She tears down the barriers and fears that have long been in place to protect us from the 'dangers' of true intimacy. I appreciate her openness and honesty as hard questions around gender and sexuality are explored from a place of love and a desire for holy intimacy."--Bruxy Cavey, teaching pastor at the Meeting House and author of The End of Religion

"The beautiful heart of Redeeming Sex is an exploration of the claim that Jesus is the embodiment of sexuality and spirituality, and in him, we find our model for right living and right loving. With powerful personal narrative, witty and earthy language, and sincere scriptural study, Debra Hirsch encourages readers to connect all of their lives even the sexual dimension of life with the life of Christ. The book provides a clear and thoughtful example of how to maintain a traditional Christian sexual ethic and at the same time treat both gay and straight persons equally. Traditionalists seeking this balance will learn much from her stories and advice."--Jenell Paris, Messiah College, author of The End of Sexual Identity"

"Join the conversation about Redeeming Sex. Deb takes a challenging conversation and brings humility, authenticity and truth to help us all talk more openly and honestly about this important topic. Thank you, Deb Hirsch!"--Dave Ferguson, lead pastor, Community Christian Church, lead visionary, NewThing

"I can't think of a person I'd rather listen to give us biblical, Jesus-lens insight out of the mixture of opinions, confusion, joy, difficulties, grittiness, honesty, hurts, healing, reality, questions, wonder and beauty of this topic than my friend Deb Hirsch. I believe this is going to totally connect with the hearts of so many needing to move beyond the usual explanations or ways this discussion normally happens as we rethink, rediscover and redeem sexuality."--Dan Kimball, pastor, Vintage Faith Church, author, They Like Jesus but Not the Church"

"Deb Hirsch has given us a real gift in this book. She has brought biblical clarity to one of the most misunderstood and controversial topics of the day. Many have either sensationalized or minimized our sexuality, leaving us confused, embarrassed or ashamed about the sexual nature of our humanity. But Deb has taken in this beautiful gift of God and woven it together with a Jesus-centered vision of how sexuality can glorify God and lead us to flourish. A much-needed and redemptive book."--Jon Tyson, author, Sacred Roots, founding pastor, Trinity Grace Church, New York

  • One of Seedbed's 10 Notable Books from 2015


Nothing has exposed the gap between the church and the broader society quite like the cultural argument over sexuality. Relationships, identities, orientations and even seemingly straightforward concepts such as gender have cut battle lines between the church and the world. In the fog of war and the cloud of conflict, it's increasingly hard to see our way clearly.

There is hope, however. Debra Hirsch has seen it firsthand—in meaningful lifelong relationships with LGBT friends and neighbors, in Christian fellowships and in movements that have held a concern for people created in God's image and a high view of the Bible's teaching on sexuality in constructive tension. When you consider the world from the perspective of God's kingdom mission, it turns out the smoke clears and a redemptive imagination takes root.

Discover a holistic, biblical vision of sex and gender that honors God and offers good news to the world.
