So I’m going through the list of reviews I have waiting for me to write and I realized I had one more in the little series I was doing on books about singleness and purity a few months ago! Here we go with another fantastic read by Dannah Gresh!!
Rating: 4.0 – 40
In my review of And the Bride Wore White I mentioned that it is geared more for the high school aged girl. Well, What Are You Waiting For? is where it picks up for the ladies in the college years and beyond. Once again, Gresh, with her honesty and openness, superbly addresses sex and what the big deal is about waiting for it.
Sex is a sensitive, intimate topic but, nevertheless, needs to be discussed. Gresh doesn’t mince words – she’s straightforward and to the point about the struggles, challenges and addictions that so many in the church find themselves grappling with. Intimacy is more than physical – it’s emotional and spiritual and God designed it to be an incredibly awesome experience. Unfortunately, the world has made a mess of this amazing gift and has left us confused, deluded and frustrated. What does the Bible have to say about all this? Gresh tackles all the tough questions, addressing them biblically and, in many cases, with scientific research to back it up.
So what are you waiting for? If you’re a single gal with questions about what the big deal is and want to know that one thing no one has ever told you about sex, read this book!!! I guarantee you won’t regret it!
Happy reading, y’all!
