I'll be frank, this book covers some uncomfortable topics. However, I found it well worth the read.
The Truth About Sex and
Waiting ... Uncovered Purity. Sex. Boys. Waiting.
about those words that makes everything complex in a heartbeat, and
raises more questions than answers. Is there something wrong with me if I
don't kiss a boy after a date? Or am I doomed if I DID? What if waiting
is just a one-way trip to life as a crazy cat woman? And what if I tend
to, um, think about a certain boy in a certain way? It seems that the
lady at church and your friends have two very different opinions on the
subject. And 'Your Budding Womanhood: Staying a Beautiful Flower for
Jesus' just isn't cutting it.
Bekah Hamrick Martin knows the waiting
game isn't easy or straight-forward. In The Bare Naked Truth, she lays
everything on the table---including some embarrassing moments---as she
explores the honest, naked truth behind what God means by purity. With
additional entries from popular authors, you'll see the bare naked
approach to waiting isn't always easy, but it's worth the risk.
Debut author Bekah Martin brings to us a very serious yet pleasant read. She covers topics that many might classify as taboo. Nonetheless, if you are a Christian teenage girl (or even if you aren't) I think you could gain a lot by reading The Bare Naked Truth.
Throughout the book, Bekah shares appropriate scripture and has several of her friends share their personal stories/experiences/testimonies in the hope that we, as the reader, can learn from other people's mistakes and make our own educated decisions. I never once felt being preached at or talked down to. Bekah writes very openly and from the heart. She also makes some excellent points while making me laugh at the same time.
I read The Bare Naked Truth in about four to five hours, just because I couldn't put it down. Bekah really makes you step back and reexamine your plans in a positive way. I'm really glad that I had the chance to review this. Personally, reading the book made me rethink my decisions and plans. I highly recommend it!
I received this book from DJC Communications in return for an honest review of my opinions, which I have done. Thanks!
