‘Redeeming Love’: Evangelicalism’s Toxic Slut-Shaming Tale Gets the Hollywood Treatment
UniversalOne surefire way to desiccate a steamy romance is to reveal that it’s a literary chastity belt. This may not be evident in the trailer for Redeeming Love, coming to theaters Friday, but make no mistake: between the Western’s corseted bar girls and the brawny gold miners is a cult classic of evangelical sex education.It was the late-aughts when my generation of church youth discovered Francine Rivers’ Redeeming Love (1991), which re-emerged on evangelical shelves when it was repackaged in 2005. For both quivering teens and languishing church ladies, it was the most salacious novel to clear religious censorship—and it was consumed as more than fiction.

I now see that the spotlit body and faceless figure reflect the unsettling undertones of an evangelical sex zeitgeist.Read more at The Daily Beast.
