NASHVILLE, Aug. 12, 2014 /Christian Newswire
/ -- Two decades ago, a nationwide phenomenon swept the country. Hundreds of thousands of young people took a stand for abstinence due to their Christian faith during the familiar True Love Waits movement. Now, critically acclaimed authors/speakers Clayton and Sharie King seek to reignite the movement with their book, the True Love Project, and two devotionals – 40 Days of Purity for Girls and 40 Days of Purity for Guys. Available September 1, the books biblically define love, sex, and romance. The books also explain why the Bible asks men and women to remain pure and highlight the promises of hope and restoration in God for those who have not.
Targeting teens between the ages of 13 and 18 and parents of teenagers, the True Love Project book and devotionals draw on the existing and trusted True Love Project curriculum, published by LifeWay's Church Resource Division and also authored by the Kings.
"We're excited to be partnering with Clayton and Lifeway's Church Resource division on these books associated with the 20th anniversary of the True Love Waits brand and it's re-launch as the True Love Project," explains Dan Lynch, Publisher at B&H Kids. "Our goal was to build resources for teens, parents and church leaders to build upon the core message of purity and how to walk that out in today's society."
The True Love Project serves as a summons for the next generation of students to understand their sexuality in light of the gospel.
"When students realize how the gospel impacts their purity, their lives will be changed from the inside out. The world says that sex is everything and that there aren't any boundaries. That's just not true," the Kings say. "God's plan is different. Teens need to know that God loves them and that His plan for them is so much more than what this world has to offer."
Clayton King, a pastor and professor born to an unwed fifteen-year-old girl, is on a mission to answer the defining question "What would today's world look like if teens embraced love as the gospel defines it?" King sets out to prove that there is a way that is more pure, more satisfying, and more fulfilling than any "love" that society is selling. With the presentation of biblical relationships, scientific facts, and faith-building Scripture, the True Love Project is a call to embrace the true love that God has intended for everyone.CLAYTON KING, a pastor, evangelist, missionary, and author, has been dedicated since age 14 to proclaiming the gospel and calling Christians to live out the life of Jesus. He has spoken to millions of people in 30-plus countries and written numerous books, including Dying to Live, Amazing Encounters with God, and 12 Questions to Ask Before You Marry, coauthored with his wife, Sharie. Clayton loves good books, the outdoors, strong coffee, dirt bikes and four-wheelers, and especially his wife and children.
