What is Passion Pursuit?

A relationship-transforming Bible study programme for women which explores God’s wonderful plan for sexual intimacy and passion within marriage. Did you know that God has an opinion about sex, about your marriage and about your healing and redemption as a woman? Passion Pursuit is a Scripture study course for women who want to learn God’s Truth about sex and authentic intimacy. It is designed to be run in small groups, but it is possible to do on your own as well if you prefer. For each of the ten weeks, you will watch a 30-45 minute video of Juli & Linda teaching and then have 5 days of homework to complete in your workbook. The Passion Pursuit course needs one woman to step up as the facilitator, but Juli & Linda will do all the teaching through the DVD & workbook, so the role is not too onerous! Authentic Intimacy, the ministry behind the Passion Pursuit programme, was created to provide practical help and lasting hope for women. Their focus is to be a bold and honest voice shining light into the deepest and most significant needs of a woman’s heart. The authoritative truth of the Word of God is at the centre of all they do, and as the Lord leads, they speak, write, broadcast, and disciple women who long to know God’s truth and healing in their intimate relationships.

Read the reviews

Passion Pursuit: What Kind of Love Are You Making? by Linda Dillow and Juli Slattery is a Bible study. Not your everyday Bible study but one to help you put the passion back in your marriage. There is a DVD to go along with the workbook, I only had the workbook so can only give my thoughts on it. The book is designed to be used as a group study, (but can be used alone) lasting ten weeks. Using Bible scriptures and even giving homework. No matter where you are in your marriage, you will find help in improving the intimacy based on Biblical scriptures. The authors help you to see what is forbidden and what is acceptable by God. Showing how to use the Songs of Solomon to help you become a Smoking Hot Mama! Linda and Juli take us through the Bible to show us God’s view on passion and intimacy in marriage. An easy an fun read.

A welcome addition to improving marital relationships

I was intrigued by this title. Indeed tackling this topic seems long overdue. The last book I remember reading on this was The Total Woman by Marabel Morgan that encouraged things like the famous scene of greeting your husband at the door in Saran Wrap (plastic food wrap). I was hoping for something less banal and more respecting of partnering in marriage. Passion Pursuit is a far cry from such earlier books. I was actually looking for the Christian answer to 50 Shades of Grey. Passion Pursuit is not this. It is something more. A chance for Christian women to ponder passion and sexual intimacy in their marriage. Passion Pursuit opens the door for exploring the gift God has given us.
As the authors say, ‘Sexual intimacy is a delicate and discreet subject that must be approached with candour yet sensitivity.’ I feel ‘intimacy’ is a key word. The authors are encouraging a search beyond sexual actions, beyond the ‘saran wrap’ to sexual intimacy and all that those two words together imply.
One thing I really appreciated before the book began was the word of caution,
‘Passion Pursuit is not for every woman. The principles we will be exploring throughout this study apply to relatively healthy marriages…you may need additional support…’ And a website is given for additional resources.
This signalled the sense of responsibility and the integrity that proved to be throughout the book.
The authors invite you to partake in a ten week thoughtful and prayerful pursuit and study of intimacy and passion. A journey well worth it.
