    Truthfully Speaking

    Ok, before I read this book I did look at the negative and positive opinions. I must say the negative opinions don¿t make any sense after reading this book. In no way does Lisa Bevere ask women to be lower than a human male, but to rise from the oppression that women do to themselves to get him. The whole book tells us not to find affirmation through the human male, but through Jesus Christ. So I am so curious to understand the people who left negative remarks on this stand: that woman need the human male to find affirmation? The book says that we must find love in Jesus Christ and then we will find it in ourselves. The closing not only tells us what women want¿which we do deep down (i.e. feminist, and the so called independent women, which I was, that says we don¿t), that a human male can not provide all of these needs, but Jesus can. When she talks about the ¿he¿ in her book she isn¿t talking about the ¿he¿ in terms of a human male, but Jesus Christ who came on earth as a male figure. I know that people can not say Jesus was not on the earth because it is written in our history books, but some don¿t believe he came from God to save us, which he did. The tragic thing in our society today is I grew up to become this independent women and came to realize I was growing more to become superior to my male counterpart, that I desired. I had to realize, (meaning the real realization), after some years that a male was placed on earth before female. Also that she actually came from his rib! So in saying this in no way am I saying you should be lower or we can¿t act like a man, because obviously we can, but life is not about that. I do find what she says is true about Adam and Eve¿s fall that it has caused us to only battle or blame each other for our fall. Although we don¿t necessarily say this in those terms, but we find it through our culture norms. Observing the male and female figure we are totally different from one another the male is a conqueror, while the female does want to be loved, (long ago I would have cringed at this statement). I must say rude reality had to come kick me in the face to see this. So, yes the rude reality, independent women, is that the male species is stronger and a protector, and yes we must submit to our husband, but first find Christ before all of that. I am also not saying to submit to any man, but much prayer is needed to find that man (husband), because ultimately it is Christ that sustains us, not the man.

    So Surprised

    I am not ignorant. I am VERY aware of the battle of sexuality between the 'Liberal Left' and the 'Christian Right'. The problem is that you can not bring the American mindset of 'everything is ok as long as it makes you feel good' and expect this book to agree with you. Please understand that there are Christians out there, of whom I am one, that LOVE sex within its created purpose. God CREATED sex to be AMAZING!! Sex is meant to be pure 'not prude' and shared within marriage and when it is taken out of that context people get screwed. And no, the writer doesn't go into the man side of things because '1' that isn't the purpose of this book, and '2' she isn't a man!! How can she fully depict the male point of view accurately? She NEVER speaks against men. She NEVER presents a 'protect yourselves from the evil males' philosophy, as has been suggested by other reviewers. What she does is present the realities of what sexual misconduct 'sex outside of the marriage covenant - regardless of the circumstances' and how it affects the heart/mind/soul/spirit of women. Feminists will not enjoy this book. Liberals will not enjoy this book. If you are not willing to accept the fact that women are emotional by nature 'we were created that way' and men are physical by nature 'created that way', not to say that women aren't physical and men don't feel anything, again this book probably won't make your best-seller list. But if you can at least agree that women are emotionally driven at the core of who we are and that improper sexuality can leave us wounded, you might actually learn a thing or two about yourself and find some clarity 'truth' to the questions that usually go unanswered.

    an awaking of true self

    I have to strongly disagree with the reviews that think this book sterotypes women. I just finish the book last night, i could not put it down,nor i could wait until i had the chance to read it again. this book showed me who i should be looking to fulfill me- JESUS not a man or sex. because i am worth so much than just sex. i started out reading this book not to find out about sex but to find out why i let myself get hurt so often and how to fix that. in the process i found out anwsers to questions that i wanted to ask but dare not too. like one said earlier if you dont have a relationship with GOD, JESUS, and the HOLY SPIRIT this book is not for you!! becacuse you can never understand how much love and desire they have to be with you and get to the point of falling more in love with them ,than man. then when the time is right He will send the man that He has for you until then just be happy to be in love with HIM! to me thats what this book is about.

    How the liberal left is killing our girls

    This book is outstanding because it calls women to live outside of the stereotypes the world and popular culture places on them. I hate the way media and our society has turned girls into little more then sex objects. Anything that challanges girls beyond that has to be given a shot. This is a must read for all young women and parents struggling to keep themselves or a child pure.

    Great book for late teens, college students, or women who need to forgive themselves

    Lisa shares stories of her life and principles on how to honor God in choices we make as women. She gives sound advice and uses a lot of bible verses.

    Focus on the Family

    I just heard the author of this book on Pittsburghs christian radio. WORD FM. I have made mistakes of my own regarding this issue and it gave me hope that I can leave regrets of past mistakes behind me. I thank God for her and her work. This is a book that will be added to my perminant collection.

    Unknowing

    Some presume, wrongly, that Jesus' message is that women are--or should be--weak, emotional, and asexual. Some Christians do believe that...some non-Christians do, too--but Lisa's message is not that at all. This book will be a source of anger for women who are still trying to live in the fragile world of our brainwashed culture--it will be a source of strength for women who sense that something is wrong and want to experience a more powerful and fulfilled life.
