This book is truly set apart from a plethora of so called 'Christian books'. It is about living life FULLY devoted to Christ in each area of life...no matter the cost. By reading this book I found myself delving more and more into the Bible and in prayer. It is hard to come across books in which sacrificing ourselves to Christ is the message. There are many examples of women giving their all for Christ in this book. It is not just an inspiring read; it is a life changing book!
This is one of the BEST books I have read this year! It is a must one every girl's shelf! Though Authentic Beauty was amazing, Set Apart Femininity takes the message deeper as well as providing tools for practical living! This book will certainly challenge you and shape you into the person that Christ desires! Its real, its vulnerable and most of all practical! Thank you Leslie for such a powerful message!!
Set Apart Femininity is just like what Leslie Ludy beckons young women to become: a lily among thorns. Even in todays Christian culture, few books touch the issue of dying to self in order to earnestly seek one single thing, a passionate love relationship with Jesus Himself. This book is a treasure and a beacon of light within the shallows of mediocrity and complacency. It shines forth the truth of the Gospel and the lifestyle Jesus calls us to. Leslie Ludy, with her poetic and stirring prose, blazingly calls young women to the indwelling life of Christ not what you can do or perform but what He can do in and through you! It is about a life completely given over to the King of kings and the Lord of lords; for Him to spill and spend your life as He chooses.As a man whose heart is set on Jesus, Set Apart Femininity captures the essence and beauty of what I deeply desire for my future wife to be. Yet this book was both inspiring and convicting to me personally as well. Though the book was written specifically to young women, men can glean a lot about the character of Christ and what we as believers (both male and female) are called to be. This book is an encouragement to stand in the face of culture, stand for purity and truth, and allow Christ to live His spotless life through us.Like a diamond hidden within the rocks, Set Apart Femininity is a priceless treasure in book form. You will not only want to read it more than once but will be compelled to share it with everyone you know. This is no doubt Leslie Ludys finest book to date, which I am highly recommending to everyone I know. Find the true treasure, not in yourself, but in Him.
This book is one of the most amazing books ever written. The message in this book is exactly what every woman in this world must hear. Leslie has pinpointed exactly what is missing in our Christian walk and our desperate need to remove the idols from our lives and follow after Christ with our whole hearts! The church is in desperate need of Christians who are actually living out their faith by the power of the spirit. This book will help take you to the end of yourself and abandon everything to follow after Christ. I promise that this book will forever change you from a mediocre Christian to one that lives in victory and life!
I am giving Set Apart Femininity five stars. This is an absolutely amazing book! The message within it has the power to bring about revival among this generation of young women and to impact the world. I have not been so moved by a book's message in a long time. You can feel the power of Christ as you read it. It's an "uncomfortable" book. Don't read it if you want to continue to live a self-centered, self-exalting existence. If you are passionate about knowing Christ and leaving a lasting impact on this world, if you want to experience the kind of Christianity that heroic women of faith in the past like Amy Carmichael and Gladys Aylward lived out, this book is for you. Buy it ASAP and get as many copies as you can to give to friends!!!
