Is this lady just being a prude, or am I being too defensive of this book? I understand it has a chapter on oral sex which, though descriptive, is still objective and "matter-of-fact".
I don't know... her comment really bothered me. The book was huge for me, and in addition to that I think it is downright insulting to put that book on par with porn.
I would have loved to explain to her what a great book it was, but I felt too judged to take the conversation any further.
I'll be a dissenting voice here. This lady is just being...herself. And you are being yourself. Christians differ on lots of topics. If she can't, in good conscience, stock that book, then we shouldn't condemn her for that, even if we do feel she is the "weaker sister" (playing off Romans 14 here). You wouldn't want her to sell you the book if she felt it was wrong for her to do so, would you?
It's perfectly fine if I'm surprised--even shocked--that another Christian has different views, but I hope I can use it as an opportunity to understand & show the grace I would myself like to receive from others. Not that I always do this very well...
Amazon and CBD will put her out of business anyhow, eventually. :/
