Too Close to the Flame

About The Book

This must-read book will help you recognize the danger signs of a sexualized relationship and show you how to keep your future with your family, your friends, your coworkers, and your God secure.

"Our world is aflame with sex," warns counselor and author Dr. Gregg Jantz. We live in a society where sex is practiced openly, talked about freely, engaged in creatively, and flaunted shamelessly. Cultural stigmas that once kept sex within definable boundaries have all but disappeared.

Anyone can fall prey to sexual temptation or become the target of a sexual aggressor. Any man or woman who has contact with the opposite sex—whether at church, in the workplace, or at play—needs the vital information contained in these pages. Would you recognize a sexually charged relationship soon enough to avoid falling into an affair? Would you be able to help a friend, loved one, or someone you're counseling avoid such a relationship? Basing each section on gripping case studies, Dr. Jantz offers expert guidance in identifying sexual manipulators and climbers; spotting danger signals in friendships about to turn sexual; protecting family members from relatives or acquaintances who are sexual predators; knowing how to avoid sexual traps when advising church members; and avoiding sexual pitfalls in professional and pastoral counseling.
