Speck's gem of a book, Sex: It's Worth Waiting For, is pure gospel. Asserting that Jesus is the answer, Speck masterfully and tastefully weaves his way through the tangled web of teenage sexuality. He cuts no corners and leaves few stones unturned. Especially appreciated is the frank and useful chapter on masturbation. Although somewhat dated, the book is a helpful tool and an easy yet spiritually challenging book for the struggling teen.
This is a good sex education book for Christians youth. I bought it for my teenage sons, I read it before I had them read it, and I agree with almost everything (~95%?) the author teaches. I find the book very biblically correct.
This is quite a dangerous book. In the hands of teenagers who have little to no other sex education, it is dangerous to teach them that condoms are not effective and that people are emotionally damaged after they have sex for the first time. There are also a lot of statistics and 'facts' presented in this book that have no academic basis and are presented as well researched. When presented to a group of teenagers, this book either makes them more curious about having sex, with little medical information, or makes them abstain until they are ready to have uninformed and guilt-ridden sex. My students have made very bad decisions based on the influence of this book. Just be careful who you read this to.
Interesting.Informative. Easy to read. Teenagers will enjoy. I am using this book as a basis for teenage sex education class as well as the videotapes. Mr. Speck even suggests to teenageers that they write to him regarding their concerns. This is an excellent book.
My son(12) asked for this book after I bought it for his older cousin. He enjoyed the candid explanations of things that were a bit unusual to discuss as mother and son. Very practical advice for keeping purity an option in this day and age.
I found Speck to be open and frank in his discussion on sex, and included a number of testimonies from youth who are dealing with or have dealt with issues in regards to this. He bases everything he writes on the authority of God's Word, not picking a verse out of context, but the principles the Bible teaches as a whole, and applying these to specific situations. Good for a family read, youth group, or on your own.
