The purpose of this book is to encourage young people toward something better than the worlds standards. I recommend this book to both men and women because even though the examples are often specific to females, the message applies to men as well. I feel Leslies book complements Erics work in The Bravehearted Gospel very well. Leslie speaks from a womens perspective and focuses more on individual growth: pursuing God instead of men, devoting ones life to prayer, and living our Gods will even if no one ever notices while Eric makes a call for men to stand up and fight Gods battles everywhere. Taken together these two books will change your life, if you are willing to accept it.
I almost feel as if you don't believe everything Leslie Ludy does regarding relationships, then she considers you a sinner and not walking in God's path. I believe in purity and a God-written love story. Leslie writes about her single years, but I don't think she really had a whole lot of those years considering she got married at age 18. It can get discouraging for women who are older and desire an earthly love story. I felt Leslie was condescending towards women who may wonder if marriage will ever happen in their lifetime. I love how Leslie writes about how God needs to be first in your life. That's the most important part of this book. I wish the focus was more on that.
This book is a must read for any woman who is curious as to what God truly intended femininity to be. This book is inspiring as well as practical as to what are role as women is to be. I would recommend this book very highly it has forever altered my walk with the Lord.
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!
