Book Review: Every Single Woman's Battle by Shannon Ethridge
Disclaimer: This book contains mature subject matter.
Every Single Woman's Battle by Shannon Ethridge is a book about remaining pure mentally, physically, spiritually, and emotionally. It asks questions and has spaces for you to fill in the answers; this allows you to personalize the book. It is a study guide for individuals and small groups. It explains how to start a study group of your own.
I like that Shannon encourages us to find our fulfillment in Christ. I also appreciate the part (though rather small) about modesty.
As for the rest, I don't know how much I can say on what's supposed to be a family friendly blog :). It's not that s*x is somehow inherently bad to talk about...it's just not something kids need to be thinking about yet. It's supposed to be beautiful and wonderful inside marriage...after all, God created it! Unfortunately, in our society, it's treated cheap as something to be given away casually before marriage...hence the fact Every Single Woman's Battle was written. The subtitle is "Guarding Your Heart and Mind Against S*xual and Emotional Compromise".
Purity is very important. May we all guard our hearts, bodies, and minds, by the grace of God!
