'We think about Scripture's teaching on sexuality as a "list of rules" rather than as a coherent picture of the "good life." If Christian instruction about sexuality is just a moral code, then we are tempted to question why these rules are so important. But those who hold this perspective lose sight of the fact that these are not just rules. The Christian vision of sexuality is the gracious provision of a loving God who invites us into a life of flourishing via participation in his own character, the relationships within the Trinity, the reality of the kingdom of heaven as it takes shape on earth.'
Jonathan Grant, Divine Sex, p.126.
