This book was fantastic in explaining the way for young women to live their lives solely for Christ. Leslie Ludy is fantastic at explaining the different issues that many young women face in their every day lives and how to over come those issues. Set-Apart Femininity is a life changing book if people read it and start to change the things that need to be changed. It is definitely for young women who really want to serve the Lord with all their hearts.

This book is great! Very insightful, very meaningful, but also very hard-hitting. If you think it's going to be a "feel good" read, you are very much mistaken. It will hit you hard, may make you cry, but you will leave with a book of meat - not milk. It is juicy and it challenges you to be a real woman of the Christian faith. It will show you that the only way to live a Christian life is to live a life denied to self, empty of self, and full of the power and will of God. I hope you buy this book, because it can change your life.

Only a few in these generations will read this book and live it. Those are the ones whose hearts have been ravished by the King of Kings: Jesus Christ. Set-Apart Femininity does not apologize to the self-centered, culture-saturated, worldly-styled Christian women of today. Rather, it contains an enchanting, real, virtuous message which takes young (and old) Christian women to live in a manner worthy of the Gospel (Philippians 1:27). What makes it beautiful are not the way Leslie Ludy writes (although her writings are excellent and I always recommend), but the message that this particular writing carries: Christ-centeredness. It is a perfect picture of the beauty of a life completely abandon to self, sin, and world to follow the Lamb that was slain and to glorify Him alone. If you are one these fews, buy this book, read it, and be challenged by the Holy Spirit for a completely new life - one lived for Jesus Christ alone.

This book is a good read. I wouldn't say 'great', but it was okay. The author repeated herself quite a bit. Dare I say by the third chapter I was...bored. Although the author repeated herself a fair amount of times and lost my interest, this book definetly helped me get my relationship with God in check. It helped me to be a "set-apart" young woman. This is not a "feel good" book and that's what I like about it. This book was not for me and if I had the option I would not purchase it again. But I plan on giving it to a friend who I'm sure would enjoy it :) I would recommened this book to young ladies of the ages 12-18

Excellent book. The other five-star reviewers did a good job of explaining the content of the book in a nutshell; so I will only add two things. 1) Be prepared to be challenged to rise to a higher standard in your walk with Christ. This book greatly motivated and encouraged me. The chapter on fortification is especially good. 2) If you have a young daughter (12-18), and you have been careful to shelter her from some of the things in our culture, I would recommend proof-reading the first chapter. It describes certain cultural things in detail that may ignite curiosity in a young woman's mind, that you may not want to expose her to just yet. :) Just a thought!

In her book Set-Apart Femininity, Leslie Ludy sounds the call for a radical counterculture lifestyle which is marked by a life that is truly set-apart for God. It is a lifestyle that goes against everything the world is telling you is important to a young lady today, and instead is one that knows what it means to be wholly, completely, totally set-apart for God. To pour our lives out for him and others, to die to self. An excerpt from her book defines set-apart femininity: "Set-apart femininity blends the classic womanly grace and dignity of an Audrey Hepburn with the sacrificial, poured-out-for-Christ lifestyle of an Amy Carmichael. It's true feminine beauty merged with absolute abandonment to Jesus Christ. It's the sparkling, vibrant, world-altering, Christlike version of feminity that your King created you to exude..The spectacular sparkle of set-apart femininity is found through absolute abandonment to the Author of all true beauty. It's found by exchanging a life consumed with self for a life consumed with Jesus Christ, by trading the desire to be attractive to this world for the longing to be attractive to Him alone." This is a thought-provoking, thought-changing, life-altering book that I would highly recommend for those serious about a deeper relationship with Christ and living a truly set-apart life for Him! If you read this book and take to heart the truths Leslie gleans from God's Word, your life will never be the same again!

This book is fantastic.Leslie does not beat around the bush in this book.She is not afraid to speak truth.It is all about Jesus Christ and putting Him first in your life,Him being your all in all. While other books out there,'Christian' ones say that 'self is important' Leslie is saying Rely on Jesus and all of these things shall be added unto you,your life will improve,because your life is not your own,but God's own doing. :)

Our culture does not promote femininity. When we were created, the creator had a plan for our lives. The plan was one of virtue and wholesomeness. It is unfortunate that we have ¿evolved¿ so far from that plan. Leslie Ludy¿s latest book Set-Apart Femininity is a must-read for all females. I can readily relate to Ludy¿s witness. Around thirteen, our hormones begin to bounce around like a bunch of ping-pong balls. Unless we have learned self-control earlier in our lives, we are a walking time bomb. We more than notice males we begin to dress in ways that will attract male attention. Ludy discusses: ¿ ¿unlocking God¿s sacred call upon your life ¿ Understanding God¿s pattern for true feminine beauty ¿ Captivating the heart of a Christ-like guy ¿ Aligning your daily existence with God¿s priorities ¿ Finding real fulfillment by living a poured-out life¿ This book¿s target audience is young adult however, seasoned women like myself can benefit from reading Set-Apart Femininity.
