Review:

In What Are You Waiting For? The One Thing No One Ever Tells You About Sex, Dannah Gresh tackles some of the most difficult questions girls have concerning sex. In today’s era, Christian girls are being bombarded with opinions regarding sex, both from the secular world and from the church. Gresh takes the questions girls have asked her as a counselor and author, and gives clear answers from a biblical and a practical perspective.

Dannah Gresh has written many bestselling books concerning female dignity, goals, careers, and gender identity, and she has spoken across the country to girls and young woman in regard to purity. The book flows as if she were actually on a stage speaking to a crowd of teens. It is informal, funny, down-to-earth, and straightforward.

Gresh makes it a point to start off with the statement, “This book is not for spiritual monks.” She wants to be real about the topic of sex and not sugar-coat what the world preaches or what the Bible says. She focuses on the original Hebrew word for “sex,” and uses biblical and personal examples to support her views. The book touches "lightly" on sexual diseases, but it places more emphasis on holy matrimony meaning purity, devotion, privacy, and honor.

This book is unlike any other purity book out there. It goes back to the origin of the topic itself and gives real-world examples of girls who have made the right or the wrong choices. Its strength lies in the fact that it’s not a book for “spiritual monks,” but a book for real girls who want real answers. I highly recommend this book for females from middle school to college, believing this book will make a difference in the lives of those who read it. – Demelza Ramirez, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
