~Book Review~ “Sex and the Single Christian Girl” by Marian Jordan Ellis

Single Christian


Goodreads Synopsis:

“True love waits”–but what exactly are you waiting for? After all, we’re constantly bombarded with Hollywood’s idea of romance–that sex is no big deal, that everyone is doing it, that it’s the only path to a happy ending. Maybe you’ve even begun to wonder, What am I missing? Is the wait really worth it?
Marian Jordan Ellis has been there. She knows the pitfalls of giving in to temptation–but also the blessings of God’s best found in waiting after she committed herself to Christ and to sexual purity. Now, from one Christian woman to another, she hopes to spare you from the heartache of sexual sin and instead point you toward God’s best. Marian offers lots of practical advice, backed by biblical truth, to equip you with the tools to overcome past mistakes and future temptations.

You are cherished. Whether you are happily single, casually dating, or have found “the one,” your purity is worth fighting for.


My Review:

When I first seen the title of this book, I thought why would there be a book with this title. Shouldn’t the inside cover be blank? Then I realized that Marian Jordan Ellis was trying to explain her struggles and how Christian girls still have struggles when it comes to Purity. With every media outlet pushing sexual desires at our generation no wonder many Christian girls don’t have more problems than they actually have. I loved how the author put quotes from popular movies into the book to show girls that there are actually good quotes that come from the movies, but that you should be careful what you watch. Living in today’s world is hard and I think that every girl and mother should read this book. I give this book a 5 out of 5 stars.

I received this book in exchange for my honest review from Bethany House Publishing.
