I believe with my whole heart that Swipe Right is going to inspire and challenge you, and not only that, but could redirect the course of your life and relationships. You might not be in a relationship, or maybe you’ve had many, but no matter who you are, my husband wrote this book for you. The truth, hope, and humor that drip from these pages are incredible. It’s a book that needed to be written, my husband poured his heart into it, and I’m excited for all that God has for you as you read it. Buckle up.
My friend Levi is an expert at presenting the raw truth in a relevant way. In Swipe Right he provides a refreshingly real approach to the new challenges our culture is facing concerning sex and intimacy. It’s a perspective I believe we need now more than ever.
One day, someday, there will be a day where you will need the down-to-earth wisdom in this book like you will oxygen. Because as Levi so aptly appropriates, our approach to sex and romance is of life-and-death importance---at least if you care at all about your soul, that hidden thing at the core of who we are that filters the way we experience everything we do in life and death, for better or for worse. And at the core of this book is a soul-watering desire to see yours be better, in a world that increasingly seems to be settling for worse. Levi makes the taboo seem candid, the old-school the new-school, and the difficult more than just possible but altogether life-saving.
I love that Levi is bringing to light the life-and-death power of sex and romance for such a time as this. I have two daughters, and there is a new level of crazy lately in the world. You should thank God that this book is in your hands. Swipe Right is a timely, wonderful, prophetic, and needed message for our generation.
Helpful. Timely. Needed. Swipe Right does what few dating books can: it calls us to a life of purity, fidelity, and honor, not in hopes of earning the perfect mate, but because we already have the hope of heaven and perfection of Jesus in our hearts. I am so grateful God has raised up Levi Lusko to be a voice of truth and grace-covered conviction for this generation. If you are wondering what God’s plans are for your love life, or leading those in search of his plan for theirs, you need this book.
Sex is wonderful. Sex is powerful. According to Levi, while sex is the source of great pleasure, it has the potential to cause great pain. In Swipe Right Levi leverages his past as well as principles from the New Testament to help readers make better decisions and live with fewer regrets.
When it comes to sex, dating, and marriage, most of us would agree things aren’t going well. We want something different, something better. Levi Lusko has written a game-changing book on pursuing the relationship God truly wants you to have. His book Swipe Right: The Life-and-Death Power of Sex and Romance is funny and engaging, while simultaneously practical and hard-hitting. It’s full of in-your-face truth that will empower you to love your future spouse in a healthy and God-honoring way.
I wish this book had been around in 1970. I wish someone had handed it to a fifteen-year-old kid in West Texas. I wish someone had said to him, ‘Lucado, quit listening to the locker room lectures on sex. Listen to what God says.’ The book wasn’t around back then, but it is here today. And Levi Lusko has a good word, not just for fifteen-year-old boys but for all of us to suffer the consequences of a sex-saturated society. This is a good book. Study it, ponder it, and, if you know a fifteen-year-old, tell them to read it.
In a cultural climate that attempts to treat the sacred nature of relationship and sexual intimacy as casual, Levi Lusko has yielded his pen to God’s hand to share what is paramount on God’s heart. Swipe Right is the clarion call this generation needs in order to understand that God is not keeping you from a thing; he’s keeping you for a thing. The lie of the enemy is that we can easily recover from premature sexual intimacy without incident. A loving God knows otherwise. With love, balance, wit, and humor, Levi has crafted a book that will inform generations to come. This book isn’t about ceasing external behaviors that don’t honor God. It’s about living for God and loving God in a way where we honor his word---even regarding sex---when it is not convenient. And we do so because we love him!
Thank God for people like Levi Lusko who are dedicated to bringing light to the issues that we all face. Swipe Right is an inspirational look at love, sex, and romance and highlights what our generation so often misses. I believe this resource will help many to understand the true power and true beauty God intends for us in these important areas of life.
The world begs us to view sex and romance through the distorted lens it has created. But Levi boldly approaches these topics with truth, honesty, wit, and biblical wisdom to point us back to God’s original plan for us. I really believe we need the Swipe Right message now more than ever before.
Levi Lusko is in touch with a generation searching for truth and moral clarity. In Swipe Right he makes the case for sexual purity in a way which connects the culture with God’s principles for relationships. Every page is written with authenticity and saturated with grace and power. If you want to live a fulfilling life without regrets and experience a future with promise, this book is for you.
I was raised in the home of a woman who married and divorced five times. I have seen firsthand the sadness and loneliness that comes as a result of turning from God’s plans for relationships. God has his hand on Levi Lusko, and I believe that the word of God which Levi points to in Swipe Right is a much-needed drink of water in a desert of heartache.
Thank you, Levi, for speaking so plainly and powerfully to what is wreaking havoc among so many today. To say that Swipe Right is an important book for all of us would be quite an understatement. We all relate to the pages of this book. This is a word for right now, a warning sign for the days and culture we are now living. I appreciate the direct and honest way Levi approaches the power of temptation, lust, romance, and love. As I read this book, I kept hearing the words of Jesus: “The thief comes to steal, kill, and destroy . . . but I have come that you might have life to the full.” May this book spur you on to a full, abundant life instead of one that is empty and stolen. This is more than just a book; it’s a life jacket!
I believe that if you want to know God’s way, you must learn to follow people who know and live God’s Word. Levi has faithfully walked on this journey, wherever God has led him. Through amazing triumphs and devastating valleys. Relationship navigation doesn’t have to be the scavenger hunt so many people make it. Levi shows that God will light our way, if we allow him to.
In a time of relationships riddled with confusion and rattled by unnecessary heartbreak, I’m excited that Levi is sharing his scripturally founded wisdom with us. It’s my hope that whoever reads this will have their thoughts of the heart as seriously provoked as mine have been. Beyond Levi’s knowledge on the issues of relationships, his true heart for people is what drives him to help point us at not just the real and clear problems but the purely focused solution.
Swipe Right isn’t just another book of how-not-tos but an honest, gritty, and real-time approach to navigating dating, sex, and romance with our souls and sanity intact. I’m so proud of my friend Levi Lusko for his bravery and courage, and for offering honest, biblically-based guidance on this subject when so many are trying to find their way in this ever-evolving dating and mating culture.
