    A Call to Sacred Living

    I am enjoying this little book. I got it thinking it may be a good study for an older group of women, but even though I still think it could be a good study for women in their 60s & 70s, I think it would be an even better study for women ages 20-40. I wish I had had such a book study at those tender ages. It is a call to live a REAL Christian life, not a counterfeit one.

    This book doesnt focus on prayer, but on removing distractions on coming away with Christ and prioritizing our relationship with Him rather than hoping we can find the time to pray, read Gods Word, or just plain worship.

    "Many of us are happy to sing songs about Christ, write about Him, and talk about Him to other believers, but often when the true test of loyalty comes, we choose personal comfort over radical abandon to Him." (p. 13)

    I worked through this book slowly, trying to take just one chapter at a time and then utilize the personal study and reflection questions as journal prompts. Do I have holy discontent for mediocre Christianity? Am I willing to embrace godly discipline in order to make my prayer life a priority? Have I been settling for counterfeit peace and joy? One of the great things about these questions (which I typically skip in most books I read, by the way) is Leslie doesnt just ask you yes or no questions; she follows each one up with an application question, a how will I change to make this happen? or what will I do differently as a result?

    "As you consider what it means to be set apart for Christ, you must examine your life in light of a crucial question: Are you standing in the vicinity of the Cross, or are you clinging to it?" (p. 25)

    Leslie addresses distractions to living a set-apart life, including apathy, temporal distraction, drama/gossip, idolatry, and anxiety. What would a set-apart look like? Opposite of those things: passion, true satisfaction, a quiet spirit, faithfulness, and confidence, respectively. The Scripture she uses throughout this book encouraged me, knowing she did not rip it out of context to prove a point and she even directed my attention to verses I might not have applied to her point. She also frequently quotes heroes of the faith, such as Amy Carmichael and Leonard Ravenhill. Quotes worth contemplating.

    "Legalism oppresses, but true set-apartness liberates. Legalism chokes life, but true set-apartness gives life. Legalism is based upon self-effort, but true set-apartness is based upon the supernatural enabling grace of God. Legalism is based upon rules, but true set-apartness is based upon a relationship with the King of all kings." (p. 32)

    Its true that this set-apart life will look crazy to those around us. You might even call me a little extreme if I adopt even half of Leslies suggestions. But I carry a deep longing to know Christ on a deeper level than I ever have even in the midst of changing diapers, cleaning up spills, and reading picture books. The call to set-apart living isnt a call to live in a monastery; its an act of surrender. Those times when I say I need to veg after a long day those are the times Christ invites me to find pleasure in Him first. Those times I just want to scroll and scroll and scroll on Facebook rather than try to focus on reading Scripture those are the times I desperately need the discipline of seeking first His kingdom. And I found this book encouraging in such an endeavor.

    "God has promised that when we build our lives around His priorities, He will make sure all our needs are taken care of. But most of us are not willing to allow this principle to be proven true in our lives." (p. 66)

    Much like the book Wrestling Prayer that Leslie wrote with her husband Eric, I need to place this book on the Yearly Re-read shelf. I need to periodically remember the call to come away with Christ and be enamored with Him in the midst of daily living, because its so easy to forget. Would I recommend this book? Yes. 5 stars all the way. But be prepared to be challenged in an uncomfortable way. The best kind of discomfort for Gods glory.

    I received this book for free via Tyndale House Publishers for this review. The perspectives above, not including direct quotes from the book, are entirely mine

    Beautifully scripted, The Set Apart Woman rings with a bold appeal to worship the King of kings with your life, to seek His Word above all. It is alive with fresh stories of Leslie's own experiences, as well as powerful encouragement from Christians of yesteryear. The resounding theme is Exchange: All of your existence for the abundant life of Christ within you. The Set Apart Woman is both exhorting and inspiring, with practical guidance on commonly arising questions, and perfectly communicated truths for women in all seasons of life. The poignant reflection questions concluding each chapter make it ideal for group study. Well done, Leslie!

    Living in the shadow of the Cross only, or truly clinging to it, not willing to let go, no matter what the cost?

    Leslie Ludy has such a great way of articulating the truths written in Scripture, while doing it in a loving, yet challenging way. This book is a fresh reminder to us of how we, as set apart young woman are supposed to live in light of the Cross. The Gospel that we hear in so many Churches now-a-days, is, "Jesus loves you, He died for you. Come as you are; He loves you as you are." While much of this may be true, the pattern laid out for us in Scripture is SO much more than that! The grand and glorious message of the true Gospel of Christ is, "Come,

    and die." The Lamb that was slain is worthy to receive the reward of His suffering in and through our life! The question that was kept at the fore-front of my mind as I read this book, was, "Are you living only in the shadow of the Cross, or are you truly clinging to it, not willing to let go, no matter what the cost?" When thinking about my life, and the time I have here on earth, (if asked), I would say that it all belongs to God. My time is not "my time." It belongs to God, and He can do with it as He pleases. However, when I take a step back, and see how I really spend

    my time, and what my true priorities are, I wonder if that really is the case. Does He REALLY have all my time, or am I just saying that? Does He have it ALL, or only parts? Take my sleep time for example. Would I be willing, if it was what The Lord asked of me, to wake up in the middle of the night, and spend hours on my knees, laboring on behalf of those around the world who are imprisoned for their faith? For those who have no voice? For the unsaved right in my own town/neighborhood? Am I willing to be an intercessor for the weak and the vulnerable around

    the world? We need our sleep... yes. However, if The Lord asks you to stay up and pray with Him, rather than going to sleep, you do not need to rely upon your own strength. Because, "Faithful is he that calleth you who also will do it." (1 Thessalonians 5:24) He also will provide the grace you need to not only survive the next day (no matter what it is you have to get done), but also to thrive and to blossom in and through it! Christ gave it all, and it's what He expects in return. What little we have, for ALL the brightness and glory of all that He is. It's an even exchange, a convenant of grace. My life for Thine, Thy life for mine. Are you willing to lay it all on the line, in order that Christ may be glorified in your life and in your body, whether it be by life or by death (Philippians 1:20)?

    This book is challenging and convicting, yet inspiring and refreshing, and I would encourage women of any age, who are seeking to live a set apart life for Christ to read it!

    Wow!! Leslie's newest book, "The Set-Apart Woman" is another divinely inspired must-read! Packed with fresh insights, and convicting practical inspiration, it will bring you to the next level in your Christian walk as you are challenged to go deeper, and to surrender more, in essence to exchange your life for a life MUCH MORE ABUNDANT in Christ. I have been sooooo inspired, I plan to buy this book for as many of my friends as I can, not just my girlfriends, but for my guy friends, as well. Leslie's message, while spoken to women, is applicable to both genders and I believe will be a huge blessing to whoever reads it! I couldn't recommend any book more highly.
