Modesty: More Than a Change of Clothes by Martha Peace, Kent Keller

Do you consider your choice of clothing a gray area? Do you think modest equals frumpy? Do you dress to get attention?

If your answer to any of these questions is yes, Martha and Kent challenge you to diagnose your heart attitude about modesty—and about God and others. In the Bible, we see that immodesty is forbidden for reasons that go beyond our outward appearance. Martha and Kent write to teen girls in alternating sections that discuss immodesty’s causes and consequences; explain and examine legalism in tackling immodesty; and take a look at ways to be modest, giving readers a biblical framework for growing in modesty. Includes discussion questions.
