Sex is everywhere.

Based on 50 years of interacting with young people, Josh McDowell believes nothing is sabotaging the spiritual growth of college, high school and even middle school young people more than sexual experimentation. It’s imperative our kids have a positive, biblical worldview about God’s design for sex.

The Bare Facts: The Truth about Sex, Love & Relationships  delivers frank and entertaining answers to top questions students ask about love, sex, and relationships. No question is off limits. Knowledge, not ignorance, is the key to youthful purity and a fulfilling marriage.

This indispensable three-disc library and companion book builds on that approach with timeless teaching, relevant statistics, entertaining anecdotes and enlightening interviews with youth and medical experts such as Dr. Freda BushDr. Elaine EngChristine CurrieSean McDowellPam Stenzel, and Lakita Garth-Wright.

We owe our children relevant answers as to why God’s plan for relationships and sex protects and provides for their future.” ~ Josh McDowell

What people are saying about The Bare Facts

“I love the way Josh McDowell uses science to reinforce the truth of Scripture. His presentation is compelling, deeply theological, and packed with content that captures the attention of students. Students, youth leaders, and parents can all benefit from this DVD [and book].”
–Melissa Brosch, HS Director, Calvary Church of Santa Ana

“I was blown away by the information. I learned things about sex, STDs, etc. that I had never known. This information must get out to the young people in our town, our state and the nation. Thank you for speaking so frankly. I am so glad to have these fact-based reasons to remain pure.”
-Sarita Edgerton, Youth Leader, First Baptist of Hendersonville

“Finally answered questions! This book really answered so many questions from a biblical perspective that I would probably never find elsewhere!”
Lauren, 14, Dallas

“All in all, Josh McDowell has hit it out of the park with this simple, extremely useful handbook…”
Steve Orel,

“I love the fact that Josh McDowell continues to lean into the issue of the over-sexualization of our student culture. Bare Facts is another fabulous tool for parents and leaders to use in the battle for moral purity.”
Andy Stanley, Senior Pastor, North Point Community Church
