In What Are You Waiting For? The One Thing No One Ever Tells You About Sex, Dannah Gresh tackles some of the most difficult questions girls have concerning sex. In today's era, Christian girls are being bombarded with opinions regarding sex, both from the secular world and from the church. Gresh takes the questions girls have asked her as a counselor and author, and gives clear answers from a biblical and a practical perspective.

Dannah Gresh has written many bestselling books concerning female dignity, goals, careers, and gender identity, and she has spoken across the country to girls and young woman in regard to purity. The book flows as if she were actually on a stage speaking to a crowd of teens. It is informal, funny, down-to-earth, and straightforward.

Gresh makes it a point to start off with the statement, "This book is not for spiritual monks." She wants to be real about the topic of sex and not sugar-coat what the world preaches or what the Bible says. She focuses on the original Hebrew word for "sex," and uses biblical and personal examples to support her views.

This book is unlike any other purity book out there. It goes back to the origin of the topic itself and gives real-world examples of girls who have made the right or the wrong choices. Its strength lies in the fact that it's not a book for "spiritual monks," but a book for real girls who want real answers. I highly recommend this book for females from middle school to college, believing this book will make a difference in the lives of those who read it. – Demelza Ramirez, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

Editorial Reviews

Praise for What Are You Waiting For?

"Dannah Gresh has hit on a simple yet undiscovered truth that puts seemingly random questions of sexuality in context. I love the way Dannah doesn’t shy away from or water down the tough issues, yet she never compromises God’s best for you! This is a must-read for any single Christian woman."
—Dr. Juli Slattery, clinical psychologist, Focus on the Family, and author of No More Headaches

"Dannah Gresh has totally nailed it with this pertinent and hugely needed book. Written honestly and compellingly, this is a must-read for all teenage girls—wait, this is a must-read for everyone, especially teenage guys! I am so grateful for this important resource and plan to recommend it to all my young adult readers."
—Melody Carlson, author of Diary of a Teenage Girl series and the TrueColor series

"Dannah Gresh hits another home run! What Are You Waiting For? is refreshingly real and relevant—definitely a timely message for today’s generation of young women!"
—Shannon Ethridge, international speaker and best-selling author of Every Young Woman’s Battle

"This is hands-down the best book about sexual fidelity I have ever read—informative, entertaining, and very inspiring. Dannah Gresh tackles the trickiest of topics with astonishing grace. Her explanation of the sacred power of sex is unblushing and revelatory. I know this is a book for girls, but every Christian guy should read it too. I’m already reading it for the second time."
—Nate Larkin, founder of the Samson Society and author of Samson and the Pirate Monks: Calling Men to Authentic Brotherhood

"If you are looking for the gospel truth on the very real issue of sex and sexuality that all singles face, this is the book for you. Dannah Gresh talks to singles where they really live. Not only is it refreshing, it is liberating—as truth always is. Dannah does not dance around the issues but addresses them with in-your-face clarity that is sorely needed. Sharing the spiritual implications while balancing the reality of the natural world we live in, Dannah practically addresses how singles can be victorious in the battle between the flesh and the spirit."
—Michelle McKinney Hammond, author of What Women Don’t Know and Men Don’t Tell You

"All I can say is wow! My assistant’s teenage daughter agreed to flip through this book for me as a favor and ended up absorbed in the entire thing! As she rightly put it, What Are You Waiting For? brings ’amazing insight into what no one tells you about sex—and it really can strengthen the relationship you have with God and your future spouse.’ This book is a fantastic read. Dannah Gresh has such a special way of taking an important subject and making it appealing, practical, and accessible to everyone."
—Shaunti Feldhahn, best-selling author of For Women Only and For Young Women Only

"In an age where sex is perverted and belittled—when it appears to be a tool in the hands of the Enemy rather than the God who created it—Dannah has shown us God’s pure intention for sexuality. Through an in-depth study of Scripture and confirmation in life experiences, she highlights the honest-to-goodness biblical truth behind one of life’s most precious and beautiful mysteries. Women young and old will read this book and find the inspiration and tools they need to treat God’s gift of sexuality with the respect and protection it deserves."
—Julie Hiramine, founder of Generations of Virtue and author of Beautifully Made

"What Are You Waiting For? is a well-written study of the sexual culture our teens are immersed in today and offers a culturally relevant perspective that aligns itself with the Word of God. Dannah has managed to walk the fine line of approaching this difficult subject in a way that will inspire teens to live holy lives and inspire parents to broach this delicate topic with their kids. This book is not for the faint of heart; however, neither is raising teenagers in our current society."
—Ron Luce, founder and president of Teen Mania Ministries

    I bought this book for my teenage stepdaughter. She is 15 and has a boyfriend and has been open that she is thinking about having sex. I bought a copy for myself also so I would know what she is reading. She has not picked the book up yet lol but I finished it within a week and was so glad that I did. I have only been a Christian for 5 years and had plenty of sexual sin in my life prior that I had struggled with coming to terms with. I could never figure out why my past had hurt me so much and this book really opened my eyes to what God's intention for sex was and I was able to fully understand why I felt so hurt by my past.

    Great book, would recommend to anyone who has had sex prior to marriage and to any teenager thinking about having sex.

    Light so pure and beautiful shines as Dannah reveals the meaning of Yada, transcending the human comprehension of things, and bringing the true significance of sexual relationship back to Eden. Back to the divine purpose of it all.

    This is it.

    An explanation for the unexplainable. The longing. The feelings. The ache. In fact, while reading, I truly felt the anointing on this book and I praise God for the life and ministry of Dannah Gresh ― proclaiming truth passionately and beautifully in a world steeped in darkness.

    As a girl committed to purity, What Are You Waiting For encouraged me to pursue a journey toward sanctification in my relationship with God and my future husband. Each chapter unravels truths that touches the soul and enhances the yearning to continue on the right track. For some of us who've fallen, this may literally be the door to freedom for you. Gresh reaches out compassionately, having been through that experience, herself. I've read a good number of books on purity before marriage and so far I can truly say that this one has the most solid, brilliant, radiant thoughts and arguments on this subject. Very well and carefully written and researched, with deep and considerable insights. Life changing lessons. Honestly, one of THE very best books I've read this year, You need to read it to believe it. I sense that Gresh is making an impact on this generation... it is THAT big.

    Thank you, Dannah.

    Although the target audience is older teen girls and college (20-somethings) age, my husband and I both read the book. We've been floored by her approach and by her explanation of what Godly intimacy is. We still have young children but have been inspired to make "yada" our focus every day for our marriage. She is a great storyteller and has excellent wit. She also did extensive research for this book and gave "real world" explanations and stories based on her research. Made for a very authentic and touching read.
