With over 250,000 copies sold, reviewers continue to rave about And the Bride Wore White: Seven Secrets To Purity. But the greatest proof of its effect is in the lives of tens of thousands of young women who've embraced the book's message.
Each chapter of And the Bride Wore White begins with a narrative of Dannah Gresh's young love life, taken from her own teenage journals. She transparently shares her struggles and successes, her moments of pain followed by healing, and the moments of triumph. This story-line grips the young reader while they learn statistically proven risk-reduction factors. The end result are usable "how-to-say-no" skills that can reduce the risk of a young woman's heart being broken by sexual sin.
In this update, Dannah and her friends share open letters of encouragement to young women, one to those who chose life and another to those who chose abortion, one to teen girls addicted to pornography and another to girls who have experienced sexual abuse, and many more specific to a young woman's unique circumstances.
What others are saying . . .
Dannah has tasted the pain and regret of opening Gods good gift of sex before its proper time. She has also experienced the sweet healing, freedom, and joy of walking in repentance, forgiveness, and grace. Her message is one every teen girland each of their momsneeds to hear. Im so thankful for the way she is allowing God to use her story, grounded in His Word, to speak into the lives of young women. God is using her to speak into the lives of young women in an engaging and powerful way. I wish I could persuade every teen girland every momto read this book. ~Nancy Leigh DeMoss, co-author with Dannah Gresh of Lies Young Women Believe
Dannah challenges young women to say "yes" to what the white wedding dress represents. In a warm, easy-to-read style, she counters the message of this sex-crazed culture with priceless pearls of truth. ~Mary A. Kassian,author of Girls Gone Wise in a World Gone Wild
I admire Dannah Gresh in so many ways. Her ministry is moving; her writing is relevant; she is a role model to women of all ages and seasons of life. As a survivor, speaker and author on the topic of sexual abuse, I constantly see and hear firsthand the pain of sexually broken and I understand the deep need for Dannah's message. The re-release of her best-seller And The Bride Wore White is an answer to the cry of our culture. This book is a timeless classic that will bring healing and hope to all generations. ~ Nicole Bromley, speaker & author, oneVOICEenterprises
I first read And The Bride Wore White when it was an unpublished manuscript and I was a freshman in college. I devoured it in a single setting and the lessons I learned made a huge impact on my life. as a woman who has now been married more than a decade I still remember and cherish the lessons Dannah presents in this book. Dannah does what other authors do not by moving beyond God's call to purity and outlining a plan to make waiting possible and desirable. This book gave me the blueprint to build a pure marriage, a gift that I am eternally grateful for. Consider And The Bride Wore White a must read for every girl who's ever dreamed of a pure and holy marriage. ~ Erin Davis, author of Graffiti: Learning to See the Art in Ourselves
The loss of virginity is not simply a physical state of being, but effects the emotional, mental and spiritual lives of every girl. Which is why I appreciate Dannah Gresh and her passion to see girls not only value their virginity, but why the ought to do so. With vulnerability, humor and grace, this book provides girls with the tools they need to take ownership of their bodies, minds and hearts. ~ Crystal Renaud, author of Dirty Girls Come Clean
Human sexuality is at the center of most of the bitter cultural struggles being waged in our day. Far too many young women don't know right from wrong when it comes to their bodies and their minds because they have bought into the low moral standards promoted on television and in contemporary movies and music. In a friendly, personal manner, Dannah Gresh helps her readers understand that sexuality is a beautiful gift from God and that He intends it to be reserved for marriage. I highly recommend And the Bride Wore White to any young woman who wants God's best for her life. ~ Richard Land, President, Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission & host, For Faith & Family Radio
Dannah has a fresh way of sharing important truths we need to hear. In an age of moral decline even among our church youth, this message is needed now more than ever. Give Dannah your ear. You won't be disappointed. ~ Anita Lustrea, host/producer, Midday Connection
As a mother of two teenage daughters, I cannot think of any book more beautifully inspiring than And the Bride Wore White. My daughters loved Dannah's insights, her humor, and her call for a life without regrets. I am deeply grateful for the realistic role model she is for my daughters...She has changed their lives, and in doing so she has changed mine. ~ Tammy Maltby, author and co-host of Emmy-nominated Aspiring Women
loreallepaAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent Resource!April 24, 2014loreallepaAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5When I was growing up, I didn't have a purity ring. I didn't have limits set or a plan of action. I had the church simply saying "don't do it or God will be mad". I wish I had heard that purity was beautiful. Valuable. Precious. An amazing gift given to us by God to give to our spouse. I wish purity had been a bigger topic among my circle. I wish I had been told that God's grace is bigger than the choices we make. I wish I had heard that we are all sinners. I wish I had heard more about forgiveness rather than being scoffed at.
Those are the exact reasons I was so over-the-moon excited to read this book! I have a teenage daughter who thankfully does have a plan of action and a purity ring. But I still want to learn and do all I can to help her (and my son).
The book begins with an introduction from the author with a very honest and heartfelt introduction which sets your mind at ease and comforts you that she is not there to judge, but to gently lead & guide. How absolutely comforting to be told right from the start you won't be judged! The chapters cover everything from Satan's lies, purity speaks boldly, guidance, the truth about sex, etc. Throughout the book, there are little stories on the sides of the pages written by other teens and young women. The "no judgement" statement rings true throughout the book. It is filled with honest stories of their own personal choices, why they made their choices to remain pure and of some who didn't and why they regretted their past mistakes. The book truly touches upon everything and is a wonderful inspiring and much needed Christian resource in your home with girls.
The book gives sound Biblical principles on why it's truly in the best interest of your daughter (and her future husband) to stay pure until marriage. I think it's a wonderful, heartfelt and honest book that every teen girl would be blessed to read and keep on their personal bookshelf. This book does speak openly about sex, so I wouldn't recommend it for younger pre-teen girls but more for your 14-15 years and up.
I was given this book by Moody Publishers for the purpose of this review.
