After reading this book in a mixed gender bible study group, we feel that the author is slightly off base in some of her teachings. She neglects to address compromise, she is very quick to generalize, and she is very contradictory. Our concern is that unsuspecting christians and non christians will be confused. There are good points, but they are hard to find amongst the rubbish. Read with caution!!
the mixed gender bible study that does not have sex.
I just finished reading this great book called "Emotional Purity" by Heather Arnel Paulsen. This book made me step back and evaluate how much time I have been spending worrying about when I will be married. "Emotional Purity" really spoke to me and encouraged me to use all my single days for the Lord with a joyful heart :). Hope it encourages you too.
I bought this book, and several others like it, for my son who is 17. He loved it, and said it was his favorite book. He wants me to order more copies so he can hand them out to friends. It has really inspired (or convicted) him of how careful you need to be in friendships with the opposite sex. To seek God's will, and NOT lean to your own understanding and/or follow your emotions.
I really recommend this book! It is important to understand the importance of emotional purity...especially as women. It is something that we often do not take into account, but is so important. Emotional purity helps us to guard our heart, and this book definitely explains a lot of how to stay emotionally pure! Very good insight. I do wish she would go into more detail on some things, but other than that GREAT book!
