Overview

If you are a teenager or young adult, you know how the world views morality. You live in an age preoccupied with erotic entertainment, sexually oriented advertising, dirty dancing, vulgar humor, and premarital sex. You hear it all-at school, in the movies, and in popular music. What is rare today is to find someone willing to speak up in favor of virtue, modesty, sexual restraint, and morality. A young person trying to withstand the temptations so prevalent in our permissive society might feel alone in trying to resist temptation and live a morally clean life. All the desperate and misguided voices make it sound as if everybody's doing it. Well, everybody isn't doing it. The Church has not abandoned its stand on morality, and there are important, eternal reasons to safeguard your virtue and shun evil. Many teenagers and young adults have taken a stand on this issue, and the essays in this book will help you strengthen your resolve. With authors who remember what it was like to be young but also see the big picture can give the answers to questions you may have: Why shouldn't I date until I am sixteen? What does it matter if I want to go steady? Who should I rightfully kiss? What exactly is wrong with necking and making out? What can I do if my date puts the moves on me? Does the way I dress have anything to do with anything? What can I do when everybody at school makes fun of me because I'm still a virgin? Does getting engaged change the rules? Why should I wait until after I'm married to share myself sexually?
