And the Bride Wore White : The Seven Secrets to Sexual Purity
And the Bride Wore White The Seven Secrets to Sexual Purity Author:Dannah Gresh Our youth are bombarded by worldly messages about sex and love. Without God's help, remaining sexually pure is nearly impossible. Dannah Gresh's And the Bride Wore White exposes our culture's lies about sex, and prepares young women and girls for the world's pressures-giving them seven "secrets" of biblical purity.
The only way a girl could possibly follow every suggestion in this book would be to become a nun at the age of 11. Even my mother, who is uuber conservative, thought this book was over-the-top. One particularly bizarre chapter categorizes girls as either teacups, mugs, or styrofoam cups. "Teacups" barely allow hand-holding on a group date, where as "Styrofoam" cups let a boy kiss them on the first date (Styrofoam being a painfully obvious euphemism for "trashy"). Call me crazy, but this doesn't really sound like the ideal way to improve feminine self-esteem in teenage girls.
