Drawing on real-life stories that will have women laughing and crying in empathy, Jackie Kendall tells about the Mr. Wrongs she dates on her way to Mr. Right, what told her that her husband was "the one," and what she learned along the way. Women will learn how to avoid common dating pitfalls and how to know when they've met A MAN WORTH WAITING FOR.

    amazing book!!!!

    i was intrigued by the cover and i said to myself ' this would probably be one of those books' but i was so wrong...it actually gets to the point and shows examples from the bible and relates them to real life.....this book was a total blessing and i would recommend it for everybody...male or female who is going through a period of 'singleness'

    Definately says it like it is!!! Now you too can know the difference

    This was an incredible book, I have already given it to a few friends. I not only recommend it for all women "looking", but I also think this would be a GREAT tool for men to read as well so they can take a look at themselves and know whether they are a BOZO or a BOAZ!!!

    Recommend to all single women

    A Man Worth Waiting For by Jackie Kendall takes the Book of Ruth and looks to it for an example of the ideal Christian relationship. Kendall provides better insight into who Ruth and Boaz were. There is much emphasis on Boaz and what makes him distinct from a "Bozo." There are many people's stories, as well as ones from Kendall's own life. She has some smart things to say and in reading this accompanied by Ruth, I became enthralled with the relationship that Ruth and Boaz had. It inspired me to take time to carefully go through Ruth, highlighting, note-taking, and learning from her (her being Ruth). While it provided better understanding to the Book of Ruth, this book did take me awhile to read. Not because it's a difficult reading level, but because it just was not that engaging. There were too many stories, she bragged too much of her sons, and, honestly, athletes don't interest me much. That said, it's still worth reading. It gave me an appreciation for Ruth and the desire to wait for a man who is a Boaz, not a "Bozo."

    A reviewer

    Author Jackie Kendall begins her latest book, A Man Worth Waiting For, by defining a Bozo and a Boaz. Boaz was a Biblical character in the book of Ruth. A Boaz respects you and the law he sees more than your looks, and he is willing to take on your baggage. ¿You can¿t change a Bozo into a Boaz.¿ ¿You can¿t attract a Boaz until you are a Ruth.¿ A Bozo is a fake. Bozo defines lust as love he sees the outer beauty and does not care for inner beauty. A Bozo runs with Bozo¿s, they take advantage of women and have no respect for females or laws. A Man Worth Waiting For is an priceless book. This should be mandatory reading for all females. The message concisely is do not settle. There are kind, loving and Christian men out there just be patient. Kendall is a brilliant author. She presents her message in an easy-to-understand manner. Each chapter has discussion questions. This would make a great book study.

    Highly Recommend

    This book was easy to read and very informative. This book is ideal for those women who need to be patient as they wait on God to send Mr. Right. It was so interesting that I didn't want to put the book down.

    Forever changed the way I view Godly relationships

    This is by far the best book I have ever read about building God pleasing relationships. It not only helps me understand what I should be looking for and expecting out of a husband, but it informs and inspires me to be the kind of woman that would attract such a man. It is very Biblically based and accurate, Jackie Kendall never shies away from the truth but lovingly and beautifully encourages women to strive to become the treasure that is worth finding. I also reccomend her first book, "Lady is Waiting."

    Grea Read!

    I brought this book after reading the original book, Lady in Waiting. Wow! So truthful and to the point. Very insightful. I've prayed and have been waiting for God to send my Boaz my way and I believe that he is here. But to make sure, I went back to the book to ensure that I was not missing anything :) Women who are waiting for a good man (notice I did not say looking), should read this book. Gives you a great understanding of the type of man that God has for you and what to do when the imitations come your way.
